Awesome short rewarding hike. Did this in January and it can get a bit slick and icy but nothing too dangerous with the wooded terrain. Amazing views at the top, 360 in some places. I'd definitely do this again!

This is one of the best trails. The elevation change is nice. Moderate is accurate even with snow and ice on the trails. Hiking poles were helpful. The trail is very well marked. The views are spectacular regardless of weather. The fog rolling in & out gave a wonderful changing view.

Beautiful falls but very crowded at times. It’s right off the road and you can pull over and see the falls without even walking down. I’ve been once and had no one around. I got lucky I guess! Beautiful places are popular for a reason though.


Absolutely gorgeous waterfall!

Brp still closed, but the walk there wasn't so bad from the barricaded gate. Nothing crazy hard, if I can do it, anyone can do it! My first ever view of a waterfall, very pretty for a first timer


Great views at the summit
Overnight camping you can experience sunset And sunrises

Easy walking trail with beautiful falls

a bit muddy because of the rain but beautiful waterfall and fun hike. Not a difficult hike

beautiful hike, a little muddy from the rain but not difficult. hiked with my 9 year old.

This should be on your top 10 list!

Great for people with a desire for a big pay. You will earn the view toward the top but it’s worth it. Can be muddy and slippery so wear proper shoes and take it slow.

well marked, travelled it my a 9 year old

Every time we go to this trail, it’s a new experience and always wonderful. Summer time, it’s beautiful but today absolutely blew my mind. My husky, my 5 year old son, my fiancée and I all highly suggest this trail in any season. It’s a little muddy sometimes but you don’t go hiking when you wanna stay clean!

Very nice fall. Came here on the first of January.

Excellent trail with views pretty much the whole way. Well marked. Very windy at the top but that's to be expected so bring a windbreaker of some type.

Our family hiked this trail. It was a great hike. Downhill for the trek and then mostly uphill on the way out. The bridge is out and we crossed the creek easily on rocks.

Short and sweet. Great for kids, grandparents, and the whole family! Heavy traffic every time I've gone, but worth it as a family trip.

would give this 5 stars, but bridge was out. this is a bit of a workout, but for a short hike, the falls are beautiful. Highly recommend.

Wonderful! Absolutely beautiful water falls, all green with Rhododendrons even in winter... And a great workout, too!

Some snow and mud--beautiful.

One of the best trail I have ever been to. Christmas know made it even better. Highly recommend!!

Beautiful place camped overnight got a snow flurry or two. November 11 when we were there

Pretty easy hike. Slippery when wet and it was extremely windy and foggy, so my view was nothing. I’m sure it’s a five star view, but I didn’t get to witness it.


Beautiful waterfalls and scenery along hike. Ok view at top.

Beautiful waterfall even if there is no hike with it.. Real good one to take someone to if they are not able to hike.

This was a quick trail. Definitely easy to moderate. Some areas may be slippery when wet. Also, we took two wrong turns. There were no trail markers.

Great hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway with amazing views.

My husband found this place on TripAdvisor, and we decided to make the trek. The road is very bumpy but we made it fine in our mid sized front wheel drive SUV. Beautiful views! We arrived at about 9:30am and had the whole place to ourselves. It was great!
