Beautiful well kept area. Rim trails give nice views of Big and Little Clifty Falls. Tunnel Falls view partial block. Tunnel Falls trail has cave to hike thru. Flashlight required. Creek bed trail to Big Clifty is moderate to diffucult. Quite rocky. Not recommend for young kids.

Great hike. Took the loop clockwise, there were a lot of things to see with various waterfalls, bridges and the tunnel. They were rebuilding the bridge at Hoffman falls so we had to take the road around. Trail 8 around the backside is just a regular rolling path through the woods once you make it up the hill from the creek. Overall a very enjoyable day,

Had a great day! We went a little off trail which always makes for a great adventure but well worth the trip and the hike. I'd love to go back, the falls are beautiful!

nice scenic views. has a variety of trails to choose from with varying degrees of difficulty. single file hiking trails that are easy to follow but you would do best to carry the trail map with you. some type of hydration pack would have been nice to bring because it was an exhausting hike. will return in future a bit more prepared

Nice trails on ridge and in creek. Couldn't really tell which trails to do - we did some of 8,5 and 2. Will be back for sure to try more!

This place was awesome. Hiked about a month ago. Absolutely breath taking. 3-4 water falls as high as 85-90feet. Some trails really challenge your endurance and decision making. Trails well marked. views from on top and at the base. Definitely recommend to see, also a cave but it was closed due to bat hibernation.

We hiked 8, 7, 6,5, 4, 3, and 1. Total 7.2 miles. Beautiful falls, very cool tunnel, well-marked and maintained trails. We'll be back! Wish they sold bumper stickers so we could add to our collection.

Beautiful place with great trails! We hiked trails 6,7, and 3. Definitely want to go back and do more. Had our small dog so the more rugged trails weren't gonna happen today. Highly recommend this park!
