Very secluded- it felt like we were in the middle of no where! The drive was long but I think worth it. The two falls at the end are beautiful! A bit uphill on the way back but overall short and pleasant hike.

Dont follow maps! I plugged in "Pheasant Falls" and it took me on a wild goose chase! Get to the point where you see "Niagra" and follow those signs. Slow falls but beautiful! Clear clean water and well maintained trails!

loved this hike and was easy enough for the kiddos but the way back was a good enough workout for mom and dad too! very secluded except for one man screaming at his kids.... but other than that it was great!

This was an easy hike but so great. it is secluded, beautiful and serene. The path is clear and the waterfalls (though slow) were very cool!

Great short hike to 2 wonderful waterfalls. Will be back in the winter to see the falls at its peak.

Beautiful hike on an early spring day! Very secluded - we saw exactly 1 other person on our weekday hike. A short but lovely hike accessible via remarkably well maintained forest road (though all wheel drive is recommended for the mud in winter/spring).

I put off doing this hike for a long time due to its short length. It is well worth the drive for the small hike because you are rewarded with two of the best waterfalls literally across from one another. Beautiful and serene, quiet and secluded. Loved it!

An easy hike with some beautiful scenery. The falls are pretty slow this time of year but still nice! There is a logging operation about a mile before the trail head so use caution. Definitely worth it though.

Very easy hike. It had a good amount of mosquitoes. I would bring bug spray. The trail was very dry :) Driving there was easy with the signage but driving home or away can be confusing. Overall nice place to hike, picnic. This was first starter hike and a good one from being away from hiking for 6 months.

This short drive and hike was well worth it. I seen a lot of wildlife and unique vegetation during the hike. The two waterfalls at the end of the trail were beautiful.

Easy mile in- mile out hike to two big and gorgeous waterfalls. The first time going it was a rainy day in March in the middle of the week and there were no other people there. The second time it was a little different, we were there on a sunny Sunday afternoon and from the time we got there until the time we left we saw 10 other groups of people. Both times were still fun. This is one hike I could do over and over again.

Holy hills! This was a challenging hike due to the steep walk down and what seemed a steeper walk back up. The benches at the top of the steepest hills were a great find for us newbie hikers. :p The falls are so pretty though! It'swell worth the hike and driving the winding road to get up there. Don't forget to take a small picnic. You will want to stay and enjoy the falls as long as you can. It's a little slice of heaven right here on earth. :)

Long drive from the main road, and kind of steep gravel roads if you have an older rig. The hike is very downhill there and very uphill back. there are plenty of areas to rest or let others pass.

There are several places with drop offs that would make me nervous bringing children or dogs. The view when you get there makes it more than worth the journey.

We went back 1/4/15 , amazed how different it is in winter. Between leaf cover and the frozen ground the trail was much less slippery. There was a LOT more water flowing over both falls and there were some great ice formations all over.

We had this trail all to ourselves on an overcast Tuesday in April. A bit slippery in a few spots but well worth the trip as a lot of water coming over the falls.

this is a cool little hike, be careful using a gps to find the trail head. mine had me going all over the place. there are signs that lead you to the trail head.

be careful going to this trail in the winter. the road is a one way road that was covered in ice in many parts. we actually needed someone to pull us up the hill because our car got stuck. including the drive we were there for three hours, had a nice picnic at the picnic table at the waterfalls, and only saw two other couples so it was nice and quiet.
