Pretty easy trail. Cool scenery. The waterfall is better than a lot of others I’ve seen in this area. Pretty muddy in November but still cool.

Fun for the kids. They really liked the trail and climbing around the water. Not too difficult for our 2 and 5 year old but fun for us all.

Awesome hike with a great loop around Brandywine falls and the gorge itself.

Great trail. Short and an easy loop, but the inclines are nice and the few rock ledges are great for taking a rest and looking over the gorge. I take pups there AFTER we’ve gone for relatively long hike to cool off.

Clean, beautiful trail. Perfect in the fall.

Recommend going after some rain! Falls were impressive after 3 days of rain. Large parking area and bathrooms at trail head.

Well marked trail to two great waterfalls. We went after a heavy rain and they were flowing! Expect to get your shoes a bit wet if its been raining crossing the stream. Dog friendly and they loved it! Partially paved to Blue Hen falls which is only about .25 miles from parking.

Of all of Cuyahoga Valley, this is one of my favorites ... the blue hen falls is a 5 minute walk from the parking lot and is not difficult ; to get to buttermilk is a more strenuous hike as its more of a natural path.

Quick and easy hike with great scenery.

One of my favorites. Lots of good elevation changes.

Beautiful hike to explore. Great to hike in the fall! Watch your footing though lots of roots.

Great hike! Easily one of our top favorites in CVNP. A must see!!

Nice day hike with views

Wonderful trail, there are mile markers on the trail, very nice trail to enjoy.

Nice trail with great views! Marked wonderfully.

Fun trail! Very confusing to get to the falls but hike back was super easy! You do cross the creek and can be slippery, highly recommend waterproof hiking boots with great traction.

I enjoyed this route. we ended up hiking down the stream most of the way and made this a loop by finding a rdige trail that met up with the buckeye trail to get back to blue hen. was a lovely hike.

Easy hike! Great for an afternoon away!

Love this trail, made it to the buttermilk falls off the trail.

if u go off trail there is another waterfall

Intense trail! Lots of hills and can be a bit muddy. Definently a workout. I started at the top of kendall hills and made my way down to the loop which is 3.15 miles. Tends to line the road a bit but the road isn't very busy. Recommend if you want a workout. Took me and my dog about an hour walking at a moderate pace. There is also a short cut to make it a bit shorter.

Go beyond the end of trail sign and check out buttermilk falls... The trail isn't hard but it's full of roots and several stream crossing but easy to find your way. So much fun and the dogs love it because they have to think as well. Worth the adventure

Like others have said, the markings were a little iffy at times, but overall it was a good trail. The parts that aren’t near the road are really peaceful and there was a great spot to stop & read for a while. I’d definitely do it again someday.

Love this route. I do a winter hike here every year!

I like this trail and always extend it by taking the trail to Stanford House. The hike offers water views, the opportunity to get in the river, and when you head to Stanford House you go through a nice meadow as well. From Stanford House you can easily access the Tow Path and head down to Boston to hit the visitors center and park shop. I like to grab a snack and sit on the porch of the visitors center as a break before heading back.

This one always kicks my butt! Several hills and steps in this one, so if you’re looking for a cardio intensive hike, this is for you. Heavily used by trail runners as well.
