Great little trail with lovely waterfall. Fairly good sized rocks to climb to get to the top of the falls.

Great hike

Great hike probably even better on a my bike

I questioned this trail to start because the beginning of trail is very unkept.  But the waterfalls were spectacular, even in a dry season.  Overall it's a short 30 minute trail that is very easy, except for end which is a little steep.  It's rare to get such a payoff for so little work.  This is a great trail to do on cloudy or overcast day.

Easy for families and with very pretty views. Pretty quick loop. Some steep areas with places where you would need to watch children but overall accessible! The trail does keep going if you would like to extend the walk, but not necessary. Great short sunset walk :)

we took our 4 yr old on this trail and she loved it. we only went as far as the waterfall but it seemed like the trail kept going. right before the waterfall the trail gets steep, but with an adult helping her, my 4 year old did it. Highly recommended.

Tough but great hike; beautiful view from the top!

I love how a 282 Mile long hike gets condensed into 3.9 Mile loop that includes the Profanity trail poor weather bypass. Regardless this is a great hike if you like constant elevation change. There may be 300feet of flat section throughout the whole trail. The last 0.3 miles is consistently a class 1 or 2 scramble. I would only bring one water bottle as taft lodge is only 0.6 miles from the top and theres a stream along the vast majority of the rest of the trail. Even at the top theres bound to be a few puddle from cloud moisture or rain. The views are amazing if you grt lucky with little clouds. Dont be fooled if at the base its clear doesnt mean the peaks going to be just as nice.

Great challenging trail . except when it forks . we missed the sign for the summit and ended up going up the super dangerous Rocky skyline trail . but the view is amazing !

Amazing views the entire time; not good if you don't like heights!

We are not experienced hikers, but everyone loved this trip. The trail goes up and back, a bit over a mile I'd guess. It is well marked out, but be prepared to climb over some rocks and roots and up the hill. The falls are stunning, and if you err on the side of walking/wading shoes the creek is also fun to explore.
Be armed with bug spray. There are some gnats and skeeters attracted by the water.

Very easy for the kids and well marked. We even saw a woodpecker!

Beautiful falls. Easy hike.
