I hiked on an overcast day. We did the loop. Nice hike. The trail gets a lot of activity especially between the parking lot and the falls. In the summer, there are swimming holes.

Strenuous on the way back. The water fall makes it worth it! Not a bad hike. Decent.

Worth it. Yes, strenuous on the way back out to the BRP, but worth it. Multiple beautiful falls. Depending on the time of year, mountain laurel blooming. Some areas are slippery. Some over-hanging rock formations.

Beautiful hike! The last 0.8 ish miles are definitely more strenuous than the whole rest of the hike, but the falls are gorgeous and make the effort worth it.
