Spectacular at sunrise! Gorgeous views st the top and lovely goi g up and down. It’s an easy hike but if you’re trying to catch the sunrise, allow enough time to make the short trek to the top since it’s so steep.

Did this trail with my partner. We're both not in great shape and this trail offered a great challenge and reward. first time through we took a right at the fork and almost went into private property. Came back the next day and went the proper way. As others have said there are lots of downed trees. Some climbing is required in certain parts. The falls are beautiful. Be careful!

Some nice waterfalls via a short hike. Can get very crowded. If you continue down the trail from the falls, crowds will fall off and you'll find some solitude. Nice hike.

The trail has easy access just off Hwy 276. Easy to moderate climb. The day we were there is was pretty busy. The falls are pretty cool, you can walk behind them which I thought was neat. We followed a side trail just of the base of the main falls and found another trail that took us another falls which we had all to ourselves.

Great trail to get a practice run in. It’s beautiful if you walk and see all of the ‘different’ falls.

The falls at the end are worth the effort it takes to get there. Hurricane Florence took its toll on this trail so you have to climb over and around trees. I do not recommend this trail for children or small dogs. You need both hands to maneuver some of the areas and it is very rocky and slick almost from the beginning. Gorgeous waterfall.

Lots of damage at present due to Hurricane Florence.

Easy well travelled trail, round trip 1.4 miles, to a beautiful waterfall. To get there take the 8.8 miles gravel road called Big Ivy. Many mini waterfalls along the Big Ivy Rd too for enjoyment.

Short and fairly steep hike with great end views for a relatively easy hike. I’m 38.5 weeks pregnant and able to hike. Looking forward to going back in June or July to see the rhododendrons in full bloom. Make sure to wear hiking shoes with a good grip due to some slippery wet rocks.

Great views

it was beautiful. Better than I expected! The hike wasn't hard. And my son loved it

One of my favorite spots to watch the sunset!

The trail is in terrible shape from floods and mudslides. We got halfway through and with the trees down it became impassible. Hopefully they can come in to clean this trail up for others to enjoy. Our little boy liked getting to play in the creek since we didn’t get to see the waterfall.

This was a great was to get into, or back into, hiking! The trail is well maintained and moderate to easy. the views are beautiful and well worth the effort in the climb/hike back up. The attendants at the visitor center were helpful and knowledgeable. A great way to spend an afternoon!

Good little hike. We had three kids 3,10 and 12 all did great. Loved the falls at end and sitting on the big rocks. Overall good hike.

Take your time, pay attention to cyclists, don’t get mad at slow drivers ahead of you, bring food and hiking shoes (even if you had planned only to drive), and pull over every time you want.

nice, short trail. beautiful view at the top.

When you get to the trailhead, do not walk towards the creek, the actual trail is up to your left. Follow the red blazes. When it splits go right, across the creek. Two creek crossings.

Trail is in bad shape in a few places but mostly it’s flat and fairly moderate hike in. My old dog did okay, had to pick him up in a few places.

Waterfall is beautiful.

Great for dogs!!

Nice trail. Had some hard places to hike up for sure. Yes you do have to cross over a small river. Unless you can navigate rocks really well, you will have to take off your shoes to walk through or have water proof shoes on. Hearing the running water along the way was nice.

I took my kiddos hiking on this trail. My 11 & 14 year old loved it. It was a bit uphill on the way in but not bad at all. The waterfall was gorgeous. We climbed down to the falls & stood under it like a shower. We took lots of beautiful pictures. Loved this place.

Fairly easy hike, but fun. Great waterfall . The trail could use some cleanup.

Very easy trail on the parkway offering great views!

Trail has really changed since last hike. While not a difficult trail, there are some stream crossings and some log/rock obstacles.
Trail now clearly marked with red blazes too.

Nice, short easy hike for all. Wife and I were the only ones there. Absolutely peaceful and really pretty. Walked from end of forest rd showed on Navigation as Dillingham rd.

If you are looking for an easy trail that gives great 360 views- this is one of the best in that regard

Took my seven and eight year old sons - the trail had lots of fun water stops and the water fall was approachable and beautiful.

When combined with the Indian Creek Trail this makes for a decent hike. The waterfalls aren't that large but they're pretty. Indian Creek Trail has several water crossings.

Bring a trash bag and take some styrofoam out with you! After all the flooding the falls are surrounded by little bits of it. If we don’t take it out, it’ll stay there.
