Always great. Never gets old.
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.
