Harder than we assumed, but a great workout. Being in shape definitely helps. Tons of rocks and rock climbing!
Love this hike!!
Great hike to the falls! Amazing views. The trails are well marked and well preserved.
Excellent views. Hike was done on a warm July day, but trails offered fair amount of shade. Some trails have rocky terrain.
Beautiful views! Not as heavily trafficked during weekday mornings.
Amazing hiking experience.
Pretty easy trail, gorgeous views. Can get VERY crowded.
Had A amazing time. great for the whole family. staff was friendly and helpful and the view was spectacular!!!!
Fantastic views of waterfalls.
Loved this trail! The falls are absolutely beautiful. A nice serene hike that includes places where you can meditate and look out onto the river.
Great overlook. Great trail for families.
The weather complimented the trail/hike well! Definitely going back!
Beautiful, but I bet it's even better in the spring and early summer when water levels are higher.
Very easy trail! You basically just walk over the a boardwalk that protects the bedrock. At the end you get a great view of the falls.
