This loop has a little of everything. Waterfalls, ravines, valley walking, steep climb, ridge walking, views and a bushwhack.

great hike in nature, disappointed that the falls are at the bottom next to the parking lot.

Steep stairway to top but fairly easy hike overall. The falls are directly across from the parking area.

fantastic trail, but really intense in the beginning of the track. lots of climbing [my fitbit rated it as 167 flight of stairs], lots of rocks to walk over. there is a nice lake on top.

The falls are absolutely amazing! The two decks and the bridge are perfect for taking pictures but the hike in the beginning is absolutely awful...its so steep for the first 20 mins of the hike. The rest of the hike is like a moderate trail. The road getting back there has a lot of potholes so if you have a car GO SLOW! And don't make a right off the bridge on your way back out to the main road! About a half a mile down the road is washed away...I don't know why it isn't blocked off...gps told us to go that way and I had to back my car all the way back to the bridge and turn around.
