Nice easy walk. Popular, parking lot full by 11:30 when we got to the trailhead. Good mushroom picking. Could not cross the falls due to high water.
Fun and easy!
so much fun totally would do it again
This was such a great hike! Loved it! Took my 8 yr old, and she had a lot of fun! I will definitely go again!
Awesome hike. Great for families with kiddos and dogs. Well maintained and very populated. Enjoyed the beautiful views of the waterfalls along with the natural waterslides. The water was a bit low. However, come spring the water will be flowing fast. Enjoyed by all and well worth hiking.
Absolutely beautiful! Love being able to walk next to the waterfalls and even put your feet in the water. Very easy hike, will do it again!
Beautiful hike,must do if you haven't!Need hiking shoes and xtra water!We loved it!
This is a fairly easy trail and quick to tackle but the only note I have is that it's a bit of an ankle twister if you're not careful and the walking trail is quite rocky and very rooty. The falls near the end are worth it, and if the water level is low you should traverse the river bed to get up close and personal with the falls. Enjoy!
Wanted to throw in that this trail is rated as "easy" but this is a relative term. Do not expect a "walk in the park" type of easy. It is "easy" only because it is a short hike (about 2 miles each way). But there is significant elevation gain in those 2 miles. It is also a trail that is full of roots and rocks as you climb.
So if you're a seasoned hiker and in-shape, this is easy. If you're not so in shape and don't hike much, it will be a challenge but certainly doable. Most kids under about 4 years old you'll need a pack to carry them.
Kids 5-7 who again are in shape this will be a bit of a challenge but they'll have fun on the hike. Kids who are out of shape will be much more of a challenge and be ready for lots of stops and snack breaks. The sweet spot is probably age 7+ for doing this hike.
Stunning waterfall, little swimming hole, and rock slides.
Go during the week or on an overcast/cooler day to avoid large crowds. If you can only go on the weekend, arrive before 9am to avoid the crowds and get the full enjoyment of this stunning place!
This is an easy trail as marked. Lots of dogs, kids and people. The parking is tight but there is an unmarked parking lot north of the Franklin trail head. Have your pass or buy a day one since there is a ranger monitoring there.
Great little slightly inclined hike to a small waterfall. This area has a place to take off your shoes and step in the water. Many people sunning on the rocks. Noticed quite a few seniors and little kids. Fun hike.
GREAT HIKE FOR KIDS AND DOGS! LOTS OF WATER TO PLAY IN.
I did this hike with my boyfriend and friends. They brought 4 kids. The hike was
Perfect for our group. It's two miles to the water slides, just about the time the kids were getting bored and whiny. The water slide section of the trail was a perfect spot to lunch, play in the water and rejuvenate the kids. We then continued on the main trail to the keekwulee falls. This part of the trail gets a bit tougher with a steeper incline and some rock scrambling but it's less than a mile and there were plenty of switchbacks so even the kids could do it. Beautiful view of the waterfalls. We didn't continue on the snowshoe lake because it was getting PACKED. GO EARL. We got there at 9:30 and saw hardly anyone, by the time we got done it looked like rattlesnake, people everywhere. Surprisingly though it's a very clean trail for the amount of traffic.
Awesome trail that zig zags back and forth before opening up to the water slides. The kids loved it and was a nice break for them.
Hiked this with my husband and daughter today! The falls are just breathtaking!! I can't wait to go back!
