I went on November 3rd 2018. Fall colors were still there. It was a good hike. Falls was awesome.

The trail is open and is beautiful. Two large waterfalls, easily accessible. Highly recommended.

Opens 10/31/18 at 1pm... Not a trick but certainly a treat.

it's a great easy trail, like other reviews I am not a fan of having to walk through piles of horse droppings. they are all over the place and can easily spoil the fun, especially when you just cant avoid them. wish they came up with separate trails for horses, or like dog owners, horse owners should clean up.

Nice view and just to rest and enjoy

Well marked trail through the woods. Peaceful but nothing special.

STILL CLOSED AND DUE TO REMAIN CLOSED FOR THE SEASON DUE TO WINTER STORM DAMAGE

Great easy ride for whole family. I had my 13 and 15 year old daughters and they had a good time.

I've been to these trails before so I can tell you it's very nice however the trails are closed right now, in fact the entire road is closed.

Quick easy hike, I did the loop clockwise to save the waterfall for last. Waterfall was nice, nothing much else to see on this trail though. The 10 dollar entrance fee is way too steep in my opinion so I wont be heading back.

ok trail , a lot of up hills for mtb

We went on 8/17 and there were a ton of mosquitos. It would be a really nice hike in the Fall, but can be skipped in the summer.

real nice mountain bike ride. two bridges, chance to see the Clydesdales out for a walk!

This trail is very well maintained and relatively flat. The majority of the connection points are pretty clear and easy to follow. Surface is mainly cinder and gravel and you can ride 2 bikes side by side the entire trail. If you want an easy ride to take with the kids this is it. The trail is also used by hikers, joggers, walkers, and horses.

A really great and easy bike trail- lovely views- but watch out for horses! (It's exciting but still.) a great bird watching trial as it passes through various terrains and habitats. (Grassland, farmland, woodland, and marshland.) common to see families, kids, all ages walking, jogging, and riding horses! My only qualm is when the horses pass through they often make the trail bumpy, and sometimes leave "trail apples."... just clean that up horse people please.

Definitely a fun hike. The park has it as a moderate hike due to the multiple trails you take to make up the loop. But really great walk and saw some cool spot.

More of a nice walk on a sunny day; not a hike; also not the cleanest or most remote area ... crowded too. BUT the falls make for a great view and photos raising it to two stars

Usually very busy with lots of people but the waterfalls are pretty. Very easy hike, great for kids, not great for strollers because there are some stairs to climb.

Cute little easy trail

Hike kind of lame. But the waterfalls were amazing and worth the hike.

The trails and park need a lot of work. The park feels lost in an urban environment with which it doesn't blend well.

It was a nice short hike. Started blue, to red and then white to come out on the gravel road to see the water falls. It's not a huge falls just a creek running down the mountain, but beautiful sound all the less. Hooked back up to red a bit up the gravel road and back around to red then blue and out.

Dingman's Falls park was my first stop of the day so I was the only one there. From the parking lot it takes only 5 minutes to reach Silver Thread Falls along the boardwalk and probably another 30 minutes to reach Dingman's Falls. Due to the wide and level boardwalk this is an ideal place for those requiring handicapped access. The climb up the steps to the top of Dingman's Falls gives a view of an upper falls area but it is really the view from the bottom that is best. Because the top of the falls is not shaded by trees it is best to take pictures of this falls on a cloudy or overcast day.

nice and easy

It's gorgeous here! The falls were a little on the lower side and not overflowing, but it's a beautiful view. Not too many trails around here that are open, it's more of a park to walk around in. There was a Ranger there who gave a brief overview of the falls and the facilities. Overall, a great, short trip. I recommend to come early, on days with good weather, it does get crowded.

Easy boardwalk path to a couple different beautiful waterfalls. The climb up the stairs at the end isn't worth it as the better view is at the bottom of the waterfall. Great for kids and inexperienced hikers.

I accidentally came in through the back of the park, technically 'off trail' because my GPS sent me to the wrong destination but I rather enjoyed the views increasing in beauty. Ending with the main water fall, which is absolutely breath taking, was perfect for me.

From the main entrance of the park, it is a very simple 'boardwalk' path which leads you directly to the main fall (where I spent half of my time soaking in the beauty). From there, you have the option of walking up stairs which winds you to the top of the falls; this part of the trail wasn't too bad and offered multiple resting/viewing areas.

I visited during the week in the spring (unsure of date) and the park was very much uncrowded.
