Easy hike till very end at Falls, cross creek two times. But if you put in the effort and climb above this fall, there is a bigger one above it that is beautiful.

Defiantly on my top ten list!

Our first hike of 2018 and it didn’t disappoint. It was raining and 50 so we didn’t see many people. The trails where well marked, the trail width was good and the falls were beautiful. The area would be great for camping and hiking all the trails.

Easy trail to above the falls. Many nicely laid out rock steps down to the bottom. There are hand rails most of the way down. Be careful there are wet spots.

Awesome trail especially if you like venturing off trail.

great trail

We had a great hike! We ended with the blue hole...so gorgeous. It’s a great “quick” hike. Will return.

Great trail. The fall was beautiful. Very busy trail with many people and dogs. However I wish it was a little better marked.

Fantastic falls!! Made the trip when my dad was in town and we always do an annual hike. I had heard this was a good hike. I would say it is moderate but then again it was in February and wasn't hot out. I can see this being difficult in the summer heat. Make the time to go to the top. There isn't a really good view of the falls from there but the climb up and views are worth it.

Good trail with great scenery. Hiked it on weekend and had a fair amount of traffic.

Great hike for the whole family. Very easy until the last part before falls where it can be steep in places. We hike this trail often with kids and the falls never disappoints.

Quick trail with one of the most beautiful waterfalls at the end. Very easy until the waterfall. Can choose to just view from top or take the steep steps down. Well worth the hour round trip for non experienced hikers.

Love it! Such a beautiful waterfall, not a bad hike! One of my favs

Great hike with kids!

we hiked from Childers Creek to beyond Big Bend area for a total of 7 miles. Very nice hike. Good trail. A little wet in a few spots but nothing we couldn't get around. We will do this trail again.

Easy hike was a little scare of the bear warning. But it was worth it. 3 miles total to the falls and back.

beautiful and peaceful. love the falls.

Make sure you watch the trail markers carefully

i good cold weather hike plus the falls were beautiful and not a soul in the woods. Very peaceful.

Hiked both 1/31/18. Laurel trail segment is well marked with white metal trail markers. The bridge is down, but the stream is easy to cross. Look for pink tape marked route 150 yards prior to the bridge leading to the logs. Snow falls segment is also clearly marked with painted white rectangles on trees. Recommend turning left at top to visit buzzard overlook, Just 15 minutes extra round trip. Dunn overlook is very scenic. To see the snow falls you must cross Morgan Creek. So prepare to get wet. Overall the hike is fantastic. Not strenuous, but if you do both 10+ miles.

Love this hike. Someone has remarked the trail which made it much easier to follow. Laurel Falls is something to see right now with all the ice. I would definitely not call this hard but at the top end of moderate.

Great views and visibility in January.

Great hike down to the creek and back. My 3 year old loved the swinging bridge.

Nice little hike to get outdoors for an hour!

Some easy sections and some difficult areas. A little slippery with mud and leaves. Marked fairly well with blue marks most of the way. Three bridges to cross. Saw lots of dogs but it seemed like everyone was good about picking up after them. Parking lot is tiny but saw some parking along the road. We will be going back for sure!
