Water fall was amazing and the hike was not too bad even with my 3 children.

Great waterfalls and not too difficult of a hike. Worth the time!

Super rad waterfall.

Gorgeous views ! So peaceful and the views are just breathtaking

Since you stay up on the ridge this is a great Trail run with wonderful views. Just don't expect any really big tree on the side loop. lol

Great trail run but if you have the time, some river crossings can be difficult if there has been heavy rain. Clockwise is my recommendation. note Stage couch section will test your ankles

beautiful! has a spiral metal stair case to lower falls. not good for dog. others great though!

water flow is amazing today so much to see out here absolutely beautiful. trail is a bit slippery but worth the treck

This is an aggressive trail for a day trip. I decided to go clockwise to avoid having to climb out the stone door with weary legs. The trail is difficult in the fall with the leaves down on top of unstable rocks. Despite extreme drought conditions, I was pleased to see Ranger Falls still flowing! The Rim trail is relatively flat with a incredible overlooks from time to time. There's a lot of loose rocks on the Gulf trail. All trails are marked relatively well with placards and junctions have clear signage. Total trip was 9.8 miles with a jaunt to Ranger Falls mixed in.

Great views from BCR. Stone Door to Alum via BCG is tough with a pack in cold weather. Currently, there is no water. Staff and ranger at Stone and Alum are friendly and knowledgeable.

Great trail and waterfall area. it was dried up when I went but would have been awesome if it ever rains again.

The scenery was beautiful but I didn't find this hike hard at all. The trails are well maintained and markers are easy to see. If you are looking for a harder trail, try nearby fiery gizzard. I hiked this a few weekends ago and it truly is difficult.

The Collins West portion of the loop is becoming overgrown with thorns and bushes. The Stagecoach portion of the loop is a solid rock trail that is rough on the knees and ankles. The different waterfall areas were very nice even though there was no water.
