What a beautiful site!! The trails were clear of trees from the tornado. The trails were clearly marked and easy to follow. Dog friendly! Can't wait to get back there soon!

Just did the Busby Falls and Machine Falls Loops, there is a lot of damage from tornadoes a few weeks back, but trails are cleaned up rather well. Only once did I have to cross over a falling tree. Great day for a hike and photography. Overcast day mid 50's.

A good, beautiful hike. 3/4 of it I consider easy and the last 1/4 which is downhill to the falls would be moderate. The falls is worth it.

Pretty steep hike up and down at times. Moderate to strenuous. Waterfall was very nice, with spots to climb up and around. Great for pictures!

Awesome scenery and worth the hike. Stay to the left trail when start and then cross the small bridge and proceed around the rim to come back up. Much easier than climbing the steps you take on the way down to the falls.
Take water with you 'cause you will get thirsty on the way out.

The park itself has so many trails. Very beautiful and wasn't crowded at all. It can be muddy in spots and also you walk through water to get to machine falls.

I took the Machine Falls trail twice this weekend. This trail is SO beautiful! I would rate it as more strenuous than moderate because of the steep grade on the steps going down to the falls. The climb back up is certainly not for the faint-hearted either!
This is definitely my new favorite place to be! On Saturday morning there weren't very many people there so it was serene and peaceful. Sunday was very busy in the afternoon with a lot of kiddos enjoying the water! I will very likely return in the early morning just to sit and soak it in!
