The trail is good. you start walking along side the flowing water, all the way till the end of the Fall creek trail and there are some parallel paths which are like really close to the water. and after this soothing warm up you start climbing up till the Big Ben tree. and then it's all down hill ;p
It took me about 4 and half hrs and I stopped only twice: omce for a drink of smoothie and second time for catching my breathe at the big Ben tree.
Amazeing hike! Would reccomend it to all my outdoor lovers. Scenery is breath takeing-feels like a Jurassic Park scene. Lol. Did the whole loop up to Big Ben and down in 4hrs-8.6miles-we stopped several times for pictures and snacks. Great day hike to get ur blood pumping. Pretty easy terrain untill you get to the end of Fall Creek trail and go UP towards big ben tree. But worth every step! We will be back.
