Great challenging hike. Got there late and had to book it up to the outlook before sun down, which is NOT a good idea. Large incline in a small amount of distance. Take your time, plan accordingly. Only thing is was we got the lookout at around sundown and there was a timber rattlesnake den about 50 yards before the lookout on the trail. Saw about 6-7 in a span of 10 feet, which is what we could see. Lots of ledges, and downned logs for them. Those suns of guns were rattling at us and we couldnt even see them. Very nerve wracking to go back through that in the dark, but yet it made you feel so alive. Remember NEVER jump away from a rattlesnake. They have heat pits that can sense if there is 1/10th of a degree change to their surroundings. & they can only attack/lunge at you when they are coiled, be cautious and safe, or as my friend said before we headed back "Stay frosty"

Awesome workout! Treacherous hiking! Short trails, beautiful falls.

This was my second hiking and yes it was tough being a newcomer. It's a steep hike of 3 mile with an awesome view in end. Then downhill was quick. Please take bug repellent. Overall very nice adventurous , good view, marked properly. Only go if you are fine with tough uphill hike. This is not a simple one unless you are one of my buddy who was running uphill 1500ft.

Love the hike. It starts as an easy walk on the wooded trail. The last half mile or so got a bit challenging with very rocky uphill hike. However it’s very well marked and nicely maintained. We got soaked by a heavy thunderstorm while admiring the view from Pulpit Rock. We took the gravel road down. It’s not quite as shady so the lingering rain was nice. Will definitely take the hike again and probably go to Pinnacle after.

Very well marked now that you have a new start/end point. Rocky uphill climb but the views at the top are definitely worth it!

Moderately difficult trail. Definitely wear boots. Wet and slippery in several areas. Do the Orange trail to the left to go up. At the top turn right at the fire pit and take the Red Trail. Ironically the first marker you see is a Blue Marker. This is the Red Trail even though the first market is Blue. Several sections could use a grab wire or rope. One slip and you are over the edge. Winter time be prepared for lots of ice.

Great, scenic hike. Take a waterproof backpack, wear proper hiking boots, bring water and a snack. On very nice days it can get busy and there are a lot of people who don't hike with proper attire, but it didn't bother us. People were very courteous and friendly. Take the Orange trail to hike up the falls, it's nice and cool, lots of great waterfalls! We didn't hike the whole Orange trail, once we got to the top we cut over to go down on the Blue marked trail. It is very rocky, slippery in some spots, but the adventure is fun!

Fantastic hike. Very difficult climb and certainly dangerous at many spots along the climb. We took our 15 year old and 6 year old (who is tough as nails). They did really great. Do NOT attempt this climb without hiking boots and pants. We were crawling in spots and on all fours going up. Worth the hour to the top. The falls are breathtaking! I was amazed at how many people were climbing back down the same way they came up. Seriously dangerous! When you get all the way at the top of the last fall you’ll find a fire ring. The trail on your right takes you back down a very easy decent right into the parking lot.

Great hike! The trail isn’t marked well and it’s easy to get off track without using the map on AllTrails. The waterfalls were amazing, especially with all the rain, but quite a bit of the trail had ankle deep standing water too. The overlooks were also just as beautiful.

Great trail very physical need to have good boots and be careful lots of fun spectacular views

definitely worth the effort

we got there at 10 on a summer Sunday and it was nice, but packed when we left. highly recommend going up on the left and down on the right. took the blue trail with our tough 8 year old and it was about 2h with a lunch stop

Quick Sunday afternoon hike with the fam = fab trail + stellar views + quality time with the crew

love this place!!! so beautifulll

When the rhododendrons are in bloom this trail is breathtaking! This trail has it all: woods, water, wildlife. A truly lovely short hike.

This used to be one of my favorite loops but the crowd really kills it. Last time I was there, a child went full Tarzan and swung from a branch. Cute, until the branch came down and hit me in the head, nearly knocking me down the dangerous falls. The other children laughed while the mother scoffed at me. I guess she didn't like the angry look on my face. The only person who was sincerely apologetic was the father. This is dangerous terrain and if your children cannot be respectful or if you cannot control.them, LEAVE YOUR KIDS AT HOME.

I see people taking the trail backwards and coming DOWN the fall side, with tears in their eyes because they didn't think it was going to be so hard. I see them not heeding the warnings and wearing flip flops. People are dumb.

The nature is gorgeous and serene... The falls are beautiful and wicked and plentiful. I wish people would be more respectful and NOT LEAVE THEIR LITTER BEHIND!

The hike is one with a fairly difficult incline, lightly scrambled, often muddy. The trail is small with enough room for one or two people side by side. Difficult, dangerous trail but not too demanding of anyone who is in shape or has full function of feet and knees.

completed this trail twice, 2014 and 2015... been a while since I've been there and would love to go back soon! I recall it was a challenge and had great vistas.

One of my favorite little hikes. Involves a bit of climbing up rocks and finding the trail every now and then, but the views are worth every second. The three falls are awesome and the overlook is a must see. Very fun hike!

Three waterfalls total. The top one is more square in shape. Overall,good hike. It's honestly not as bad as people say. Took my girlfriend there on her first real hike. Just take it slowly and all will go well :)

Maybe I missed the overlook? This is def not hard and should be rated moderate. It is very crowded, the waterfalls are pretty and it is a little confusing finding the trail but relatively well marked once you’re on it. I took the red trail up, supposedly steeper side. If you go this route you see the waterfalls fairly quickly. I came down the orange trail, much less crowded but still a good bit of traffic

Great hike! Amazing views from the top. Once you are done go for a swim in the lake.

An absolutely stunning hike!! This hike is packed with scrambling, climbing, impressive waterfalls and an abandoned railroad tunnel (which is open to the public). While my boyfriend and I are not experienced hikers, we did manage to complete the entire loop. With that said, invest in some quality hiking boots and use extreme caution when near the falls. Tip: go to the left trail, instead of the right trail, first when beginning the hike. The left trail is consistently strenuous due to the steep footing and rocky terrain. Complete the difficult part of the trail first. Many people were turning around after the last fall, however, you can continue by following the well-marked trail blazes. This will lead you to a less intense, more secure climb down to the parking lot.

My boyfriend and I (age 30) heard great things about this trail, so we decided to check it out. It took us about 30 minutes to get the top, we saw a small black snake on the way up and one black snake on the way down. At the top there is a few overlooks with awesome views, as well as addiontal trails. One has an old cement building on that you can walk through. The trail is very dog and kid friendly.

haven't been here in a bit, they redirected the trail, a lot more switchbacks this way, so it makes it a bit easier, very well maintained and very well marked... bring water! awesome view,well worth the work to get there :)

Hiked with our 11, 10, and 5 year-olds, and they loved it. However, we came across several families with scared/crying/injured kids. This is NOT a hike for unpracticed families. Hiking boots, not sneakers, definitely help kids with the upward rock scrambles.

Absolutely stunning. The challenging terrain is worth the views!

did this while doing the standing stone trail, such a great workout with epic views at the top, ready to do again without the 30 pounds on my back :)

Great hike and perfect for me to do with my 6 y/o.

challenging but worth it. not well marked. had to use gps a bit especially at the top and around the look out point. very easy to follow an interconnecting trail and find your self back on a trail you already took. red and orange markets are not clear.
falls are nice. look out at very top is really special.
