I hike this trail 4 to 5 times a year. Always a challenge, and in some spots caution is needed. When a trail challenges a seasoned hiker, it's automatically a great trail!

Really nice hike and definitely serves up a good challenge. it's about an hr and a half from Philly and a very easy drive. super easy to find. the first hike up alone side the falls is no joke especially if ice or snow is on the ground. Plenty of look outs when you reach the top. gradual and easy decline back down. I will certainly come here again soon.

As a Lower Bucks County resident, I find this trail to be one of the best in "the area." It runs along the falls, so you almost always have a view. Additionally, the way up (take a left at the sign) offers a nice incline and rocky terrain for a refreshing workout. Just make sure you wear proper hiking boots -- and look out for copperheads and rattlesnakes (I once saw both in one day)!

I am looking for some winter hiking advice! I have done this trail several times, both in the summer. We are planning to also do this the last weekend in November. Has anyone hiked this around then? Just looking for feedback, or recommendations. THANK YOU

Gorgeous views once you reach the waterfalls. This is definitely a hard hike and I recommend hiking poles if you have them. The warning signs are there for a reason!

Great trail. Poorly marked. Do it clockwise going up on the left so you climb up he steep part and come down the gradual decent. From where we parked the trail went down the steps and under the bridge on the right. When you get to the big wooden caution sign take the trail to the left. It is not for novice hikers.

Outstanding trail in a beautiful area of PA! I took my teenaged kids on this trail a couple days ago and they loved it! Waterfalls were wonderful despite the lack of recent rain. We were able to hike through the stream over boulders for most of the hike. One portion had natural steps adjacent to the waterfall itself. We drive almost 2 hours each way for the hike and it was worth it. Took us about 2.5 hours to go up the falls, eat at the fire pit, then walk the loop side down, which was very peaceful.

Signs everywhere warning of death and proper shoes. Waterfalls are incredible as you go up the mountain. They way down is a bit more nerve racking then going up. Experience is required, if it's your first hike don't go here. Focus and stamina required.

Proper foot wear and a little athleticism are a must on this trail. There are a few steep inclines where you need to use rocks and roots to climb up. The loop takes about 2 hours. The views along the way are truly beautiful. This hike is well worth it and makes for a perfect day hike! Can't wait to do it again.

Took around an1.5 hours. Hard to tell the trail but this app help with that. Recommend that you take snacks and GOOD HIKING SHOES!!
