This is one of our favorite trails, it's beautiful and easy. We've hiked it several times!
This is a very moderate trail and would benefit from signs showing distance. The sign states that Van Hook Falls is 2.6 miles from the beginning, so would be 5.2 round trip, but we did not map it ourselves. We had a group of 6 and it was a nice little trek. Lots of flat spots, but toward the end more elevation down and climbing or stepping carefully over sandstone rocks. All the creek beds were dry and the falls was barely running, so a spring or summer trip would be better, but then be weary of filled creek beds you would have to cross over. Nice day hike! Pack your water!
Best hiked during or immediately after a good rain for waterfall to flow. Google directions are accurate to site. Parking across from marked trail head. Trail is obvious with purple markers on trees and rocks. Steady decline from trailhead. Nice forest trail. Not strenuous. If youre going to see waterfall and creek bed is dry or not flowing then waterfall will be too. Better waterfalls in area.
Wonderful hike and well worth the hike. Great parking on 192 for the trail head.
AMAZING!!! This trail is highly recommended! There is something waiting for you one very corner.
It's an awesome hike. We went after a heavy rain, and had to cross several knee deep creeks. I can't wait to go back.
This was a great trail! We walked Ponder Branch back out and it was amazing! On this less traveled route you can see so many falls and a closer look of the long one that falls down the mountain! Be prepared for knee deep water, many obstacles and climbing up the side of a waterfall when you've reached the dead end.
Great trail. There are three separate falls to see. The last one, Van Hook Fall, was amazing.
Love the views and scenery on this hike.
Beautiful and casual trail. One great view right after another. Lots of pretty creeks and waterfalls.
Beautiful hike and wonderful trail.
we went on a cool day and had rained he day before. there was plenty of water going over the all the falls on the trail. if it had been warmer, we might have gone skinny dipping...lol
Trail was in great condition. Recent rainfall amounts made for very nice small waterfall viewings & a really nice amount of water on Vanhook Falls. Cane Creek is a terrific spot to stop for lunch & cool off in the swift & cool water. Be sure to check out the rock water slide that passes under the first bridge before the creek. Abundant wildlife on trail (including copperheads) & nice wooded scenery.
