Crowded but nice trail. We used this as a start of an improvised trail. Recommend following up with the Canyon section, less crowded.

Did this trail about a week ago with a 2 and 5 yr old. This is a family favorite as we pack food for a picnic. Heavy traffic, saw around 100 people on this trail today so it made it hard to stop and fully enjoy.

It's prettier if you go after a rain. I went around 7 am and had brunch at the waterfall. It was not over crowded at this time.

Beautiful trail, but the crowds ruin this one. Can't get away from the smell of others cigarettes and the smell of alcohol along the entire trail. Even in the rare moments when we weren't near anyone on the trail, you could still smell cigarette smoke. The actual Cedar Falls was over crowded with plenty of drunk people. I had my kids with me and wish they hadn't experienced that. Will not do this trail again and would not recommend it, especially on the weekend. Maybe it would be better on a weekday.

Nice hike but very poplar. Go early to avoid the crowds. Would definitely do it again.

Gorgeous trail. For me the only downside to the trail is that it is very popular and heavily trafficed. Everyone needs to do it at least once though. The hike out of the valley at the end can be a bit difficult

Beautiful scenery and great photo ops. Can be steep in spots and slippery underfoot due to the rocks. Can get busy.

A great trail that leads you through the heart of nature and as the rumble gets louder you come to a clearing and behold there is heaven. Really enjoyed this trail. The waterfall was great and the water is good to cool you off on the hike. Only down side is that people tend to leave their empty water bottles and trash laying around. If I had a day pack with me I would have picked it up and hiked it out.

Beautiful little loop. Used to have to run this trail for preseason basketball. There is a great waterfall and most of the trail is down as you begin, and of course up as you head back out of the trail. You can walk underneath the waterfall when it is flowing. Wonderful in the fall!

Absolutely beautiful and easy hike. You can even stand under the 95' waterfall! Swimming however is not permitted. Was utterly amazed by the amount of trash around! I filled two bags full of plastic water bottles, food wrappers, beer cans, wet clothes and a pair of flip flops! Not to mention I saw 5 dirty diapers on a mile hike, wtf people!! Beautiful hike and great park/facilities, wish people would respect it.
