The 4.4 mile loop was all this overweight 54 year old could handle. Two hours and ten minutes of beautiful scenery and great exercise with frequent short rests, especially on the return portion of the hike.

loved the hike,, Just wish there had been more water over the falls

this place is BEAUTIFUL!!! so much to look at and a great workout! my new favorite trail!

Good ready trail, but if you take the spur down to the bottom of the falls it's at least moderate- my 12 year old Golden Retriever will testify to that!

Very pretty falls but the trail is a bit dangerous in areas.

This was a cute hike! There were only two steep areas. I saw one snake and lots of squirrels. The rock and the still were pretty cool. The waterfall was peaceful. It would be a nice family, day trip.

Great trail with some wonderful views! it intersects with several other trails as well.

I still remember this trail very well. There were times that I thought we were walking too close to the snake habitat.

I did this summer before last. It was a nice trip. There were wolves howling at night but we were not able to see any.

Hike was fun but the view at the end was disappointing.

Loved this trail. My 8 yr old done it easily. Well worth the climb!

beautiful, I love to climb the rocks, and get as close to the river as possible. there is a great view of an old train trestle. This time of year the fall foliage is just beautiful!

We didn't finish. Even on a cool October day with bug spray the bugs were relentless. GPs is wrong. Once you leave the highway, stay on that road. Trail head will come up on your left. Don't turn left.

Wish it was marked better. Lack of blazers leave you wondering if you're going the right way. Good hiking!

The full Bluff Loop Trail is 1.7 miles and is now open. It's a great, short hike that is well marked. My 8 and 5 year old really enjoyed it!
