Beautiful falls. Easy hike.

Beautiful waterfall, but a little steep in the beginning for our 2 kiddos (7 and 11). We made it beyond though, and behind the waterfall, it levels out and was a much easier time. We are new to hiking so it was a good first trail.

You're in the trees for most of it but the view from the summit is worth it!

There is parking, though it tends to be very crowded. The first part of the trail is very steep, but very smooth and well maintained, and runs along a beautiful river with a waterfall that you can play in. After a little less than half a mile the trail flattens out and just runs through the woods occasionally finding the stream. This part is very flat and easy, though a bit boring. The trail is definitely more than a mile and a half each way, though I didn't reach the end so I can't say how far.

I would say this is a little more than "moderate" but definitely not hard. It's a good and clear trail up with great scenery. The view from the summit is completely worth all of the out-of-breath climbs and sweat.

For what it is, this is a great trail. It's kid- and dog-friendly and not so crowded as to make it unattractive.

One of the benefits of hikers with kids is that you can hike in about a half-mile and get to the river and small falls. If the kids are pooped you can turn back here after a splash in the water. But if the kids still have energy you can continue up the steeper part of the trail to more dramatic and scenic views.

At the top end of the trail there are great spots for a picnic or just lolling around in the sun in the river.

Highly recommended as an easy out'n'back.
