Beautiful hike! Trails were well marked. We met lots of friendly hikers. Trail very pet friendly. Falls were beautiful with a great viewing deck. We would highly recommend exploring these trails.

Beautiful hike. Falls were bigger than I had imagined. Well worth hiking. When I got to the loop, I went in a clockwise direction

Falls are easily accessible and beautiful, but only the beginning of this trail. Follow the trail around over the top of the falls and along the river ("Brandywine Gorge", I believe it's labeled) for some truly beautiful scenery, and a trail that loops back to the falls. Short enough to not kill you, long enough for a good workout.

Great hike! Stairs and hills are included in this hike. Brandywine falls is a great spot in the CVNP year around.

If you find the trail to get down to the river, do it. It's super steep and not for the novice level hiker but this was by far one of the best scenic spots. It's slippery and wet if you don't wear water shoes (I recommend keens) but this was an amazing place to be!

The falls are beautiful. The remainder of the trail was paved and fairly flat.

I really enjoy this trail. Brandywine Falls makes for a great resting spot. The Stanford path to the falls is pretty flat, except for a small gorge. It adds some elevation, but not too difficult at all. Would highly recommend this path.

Nice trail. I've done this a few times . It's easy to pass the Stanford House when you're driving to get there. It's on the right, look for the sign, park behind the barn. Falls are beautiful.
