Be prepared! The densely forested canyon hides the canyon walls that you descend through. The temperature can be up to 20 degrees warmer than when you start out.More than one case of dehydration has been documented here.

An ideal hike! We went after a snow and it was gorgeous. All the falls were spectacular. Moderate difficulty with only a few steep sections, and the trail is well maintained.

Not a bad place. I wouldn't consider this hard to be honest. There are some good declines which make for a tougher hike out. Plenty of different routes for overlooks,waterfalls, and caves. Trails are fairly branded so it doesn't seem to easy too get lost or off track. Went on a Thursday morning and did not meet any others on trail! I would recommend for sure, Enjoy!

Camped out at the top of virgin falls. All the falls besides Big Laurel and Virgin did not have water. Top of Virgin had plenty of moving water. Beautiful hike. Will be back again.

The falls are absolutely beautiful, probably even more beautiful if we had some rain! My kids and I went on this hike and it's a lot of up hills and down hills, but it is worth it. Lots of spots to explore and venture into! But the falls is the main beauty of this hike❤️️loved it!!! Probably going to back in spring to camp next time

Went mid summer. Super dry, but we still had a great time. There was plenty of cool fresh water once you got to the falls. There are some great camping spots all around the falls for anyone interested in an over night

Great trail, not too difficult in my opinion. It took us 1 hour 20 minutes in and we spent about 20 minutes at the falls, then it took us 1 hour 50 minutes out. The trail is really well marked with white plastic blazers and additional wooden and laminated paper signage that makes it easy to navigate.

It was a really nice hike it being dry had all the falls down to a trickle but was expected. The overlook trail at Martha's pretty place was the highlight of the trail.
