This was a simple route with multiple small trails to get down to the falls. Very cool pictures of the falls! Watch out for spider webs!:)

The falls was beautiful, but the trail was difficult to follow. There is a very short trail to an overlook. From there, there are two unmarked trails left and right. We took the left, which led to the bottom of the falls. Some have clearly taken a shortcut that is much more steep. We did not take the path to the right, but I assumed it went to the other falls that I read about online. None of it was marked and my wife was not confident with my desire to charge off into the wilderness on an unmarked path with my children!

Do the loop to the left of the viewing deck down to the falls then up behind the falls and up to the smaller falls above.

This trail is deceiving. Initially it starts out appearing mundane but about a quarter mile in it becomes spectacular. Well worth it to go to the up to the viewing deck for the dam at the end.

Trail down to the waterfall was difficult, no footing but a few tree roots but it was worth it to see the amazing waterfalls.

Fun little trail down, definitely wish it was a bit longer. Nice small waterfall that you can get behind and enjoy. Would return!

It's nice. Just a short (steep) hike to the bottom of the falls. The view is nice when you get down there. But the best part is hiking down the stream. My kids had a lot of fun doing that.

This is a really short hike and is ok if you're doing the Sugarloaf trail anyway.

This was a decent outing but nothing to write home about in my opinion.

Great little hike you can do in a few minutes on the way to another trail. The falls can be viewed from the trail head if your in a hurry but it's worth it to hike down and around to the bottom. Not the easiest trail but I did it carrying a toddler and a beer gut so it's not too bad. Saw a giant woodpecker too, so it might be a good spot for bird watching.

You can drive all the way to the top if you just want a view of the dam. The hike up is decent from the visitor center but most of the view of the river below will be blocked by trees in the summer. The bluffs overlooking the trail are still a nice enough view to make up for it. I didn't even mind the vultures circling me like they knew something I didn't.

Short hike to the base of the summit. The challenge is climbing to the top but if you do the view is beautiful.

There are two different trails here that I know of. One goes to a small pond, and the other goes to the top of the mountain. The one to the pond is extremely easy and is a walk through the woods. The one to the top is more challenging. To get to the top of sugarloaf you have to climb up through a crack which can be challenging if you aren't in good shape. My friends and I made it up just fine but we are all in our early twenties. There are multiple ways to the top but we took the one that looked the easiest. When you reach the top the views are amazing! You can see for miles. I highly advise you check out this short but stunning trail.

Seems I did this one a week too early. The creek would be really nice with water in it....thinking it would have been a pretty cascade.
