Our hiking group went on a cool crisp morning. The trail is very well kept and has a beautiful water falls! There is a picnic area with bathrooms. This is a easy hike with just a small amount of steep stairs to climb. Would be great for a family even with smaller children to hike.

As some other reviews stated, definitely take Oswald to get there. It provides some awesome overlooks of the mountains, and is not graveled and narrow like Benton Springs Road. Make sure to have $3 cash as there is a parking fee. The trail itself is relatively easy despite the many stairs. The falls themselves are stunning.

The trail is mostly flat with rock steps down to the creek at the end. The falls are beautiful and look like a water wall. Nice easy walk.

Great 3mi round trip, the falls are about 60 ft and plan to get wet for some fun

Went last summer. Trail was pretty easy to work with although we had a little trouble finding it when we tried to drive in originally. The trail is located past all the camp sites and areas over by the lake. There were some stairs down that were wet, but the water was flowing really well and the waterfall was beautiful. Bunch of people would come through and go swimming so had to wait a bit to take my pictures, but it wasn't too bad. We came in right as a big group was leaving so just had to deal with the random people that would wander in and ignore the fact that I was trying to get pictures as they stood right in front of me. Very pretty place.
