The best waterfall I have been to yet. Great hike down to the falls and BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL. I couldn't wait to get in and swim. Water clean and cool. LOVED every second. Can't wait to go back.

Definitely not stroller friendly. We had our 2 year old and a puppy with us at the time, he hiked most of it, puppy took his time

There are three different trails... the outlook, the shortcut and the 3.4 mile loop to the bottom of the falls. Bring water shoes because part of the way you will be walking in the creek.

We went two days in a row and had a blast. The first day with a dog and the second without. Super easy, a lot of fun! There were all ages and all sizes- the super fit and the super not- all were having a great time.

Out of Towner here and out of the 4 waterfall hikes we did this one had the most amazing clear huge waterfall. Short hike mostly easy. Coming back the uphill after a long swim was a little tough on the legs since it's a bit steep. Nonetheless it was totally worth it!

This hike isn't very hard or long. Although the rocks are slick in the water. The waterfall is beautiful overall! Must go!

We decided to do this trail today and I am sooo happy we did! Absolutely stunning and the best swim hole that I have ever been to! I could spend my entire day here if I could. I will say, listen to other reviews when they say hiking shoes or water shoes are a must!

I go at least once a week. My favorite hike that has a swim hole at the falls. I recommend Monday's or Tuesday's for minimal people and maximum fun.

LOVE Cummins Falls. I suggest going early, it does get very crowded during the day. You walk through a lot of water and the swimming hole is awesome. Wear shoes that grip good, it's very slippery on the falls.

Enjoyed this hike with my boys. Be sure to wear sandals/water shoes.
