This is a great, short hike with a resting spot at the falls that will make you want to sit there a while and enjoy nature. There is good coverage from the sun and the trail is well maintained. Happy hiking!

Fun for jeep driving. Not a difficult drive, but very narrow and not many places to turn around. If you have a mid to full size truck be prepared for limb scratches and a lot of reverse driving to get out of there.

Great trail. Took my 2 year old son and mom, everyone enjoyed it.

This was a hard hike! Uphill until you reach the "Lake". This was a beautiful hike, found people up to the first Waterfall, and once we went past it, we only found one more couple and their dogs.
Well, the only reason why I did not put 5 stars was because I was expecting a lake... however what you will find is a retaining Pond. So thinking I was going to see a Lake, to find a Retaining pong was not was I was expecting and it was disappointing... But the hike itself was awesome and such a workout!
So after going uphill for what seems forever, you will find somewhat of an intersection, A tree on your left has a carving of the letters H & G (if i remember correctly) this is where you have to make a left and follow that trail to the "Lake/Pond". Then once you make that left, its so wonderful and strenuous hike up, worth it! just cause the hike itself, not so much the pond....
Hope this helps and does not discourage to get to know this area, its worth it for sure, just don't go expecting to see a lake at the end! :-)

Very peaceful. Only went to the bridge. Great hike although it is rocky.

Wait on the water! Best on a hot summer day. Very refreshing. I've been down the upper on raft, and the lower on tube and kayak.

Trail was a little hard to follow maybe since there was a storm and trees were down. Couldn't make it to the end since the trail seemed to disappear which was a bummer. I would do again and probably go swimming and figure out how to finish it. Steep slopes and rocks. All in all it was fun.

Very nice hike. Must do. Both falls. Directions are a little off. Instead of taking Neumann road to the right go just past to next gravel road on the right. All the way to end. Very pretty.

The trail was steep, but not 2 miles like the app indicates. It is definitely worth getting down to the falls and at least jumping in for a swim. I wouldn't wear flip flops, but water shoes will work fine. Also, if you're bringing any kind of beverages or food, please take your trash back up with you.
