Easy hike going down. Pretty steep coming up.

After heading down the trail (which, due to being a bit steep at times, was a little rough on the knees ... but otherwise enjoyable) we took time to sit and listen to the cascading waterfall at the bottom of the trail. (Along with about a billion other people ... okay, not really that many, but when you're trying to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature ... it kinda looked and sounded like it.

I’ve been hiking this for almost 30 years. It is one of my favorite hikes and different every time. The view at the top makes it all worth while.

My Wolfpack and I conquered this trail... The river runs down beside the trail the entire way to the waterfall, are you strong enough to join my Wolfpack?

In every season this trail is absolutely stunning. I enjoy this trail the most during Autumn season.

I went through on a Monday morning around 6:30 am. No one around until I was on my way out. Nice loop. Beautiful scenery and sounds of the falls.

well traveled hike. a lot of foot traffic. easy down. moderate up.

This is such a beautiful hike. Its fun going down it and it only takes like 15-20mins but once you’re ready to head back up its a bit of a climb. However it is really beautiful. The water fall goes all the way to the bottom right before the Rose River trail starts. Its a must see.

Great hike not for beginners it's up up all the way! But the 360 panoramic view is amazing.

It was great but I really don’t believe it is good for dogs. Rocky just about the whole way. Definitely hard on the paws

Beautiful hike, lots of rain the last couple of weeks so the falls were roaring. Moderate is an accurate assessment. Hiked it with my wife and our two granddaughters. Girls complained a little but not to much which rates this as a good family hike. will differently hike it again when in the area.

Fun, short hike. Started early on a weekday morning and ended up having the entire top to myself. Clear day, great views, and light breeze.

The falls are lovely but this is a highly trafficked trail and many people go down this trail to see the falls and struggle hard to get back up. It won’t be a problem If you’re in good shape/hike a lot and it is definitely worth seeing. If you are taking small children, older family members or injured hikers with you, consider going to the lower falls via the horse trail. It is much easier with a pretty flat trail in and out. The lower falls are quite as spectacular but still pretty and much easier to access.

Hiked this with a friend after a week of heavy rain and the falls were incredible! The trail was waterlogged and a little difficult to navigate at points, but overall still a beautiful hike. Crabtree is one of my favorite hikes in central VA.

Easy, nice, quick trail. Short jaunt over a gravel path, then the rest is on relatively well packed sand. It's out of the way, the beach isn't nearly as busy as Virginia Beach, but it still sees plenty of traffic. Absolutely worth the trip!

Very popular trail. Pretty short, I did it in an hour and a half. Good for beginners in good health. The water was very pretty all the way down and there was even a small pool of water at the bottom that you could swim in. Long drive to get to the trail head but there are several other trails to fill in the rest of your day.

Nice trail. It was the only trail we hiked with a packed parking lot. We did this trail after a morning on Marys Rock. The view of the falls from the bottom is really nice (with people everywhere). The trek back up was fine, even after a fall from the day before.

great views of the waterfall. well maintained trails.

if the loop is done counter-clockwise, your journey is going to be more quiet. Just know as you approach the water at Stubblefield Falls the rock scramble is very steep. The Scotts Run Falls were smelly and loaded with trash. There were people drinking beer and some of them looked underage. Lots and lots of people swimming in spite of warning signs not to swim. one girl was naked! Pretty day as was quiet until I got to Scotts Run Falls. Trails were blazed according to the color coded map. An ok afternoon, could be better could be worse.

Based on the google maps directions provided by this app, you’ll be driving up a tight service road for a significant amount of time until you reach a point where you may be able to park your car. Do not drive a car that rides low to the ground as you’ll basically be driving over two small creeks and many potholes. Signs for the trailhead are nonexistent, so the gps tracker on this app is absolutely essential. The actual hike is easy, with a bit of a rock scramble at the summit, where it’s a panorama view of the mountains surrounding you.

Beautiful views all the way up the trail! View from the top was nice and had a small area if you want to sit and enjoy the view! Pretty steep incline but worth it! Work out with a view! Loved it

Me, my husband and our 3yo goldendoodle did this hike on July 28th. The hike up the falls was simply stunning and we took full advantage of the rest areas to enjoy the scenery. The view from the top was absolutely gorgeous and decided to continue on to Crabtree Meadows, the AT and then back down. If you have time, I highly recommend adding the extra miles to round out the hike.

Loved this hike, The view at the top is amazing. But the bugs at the top were INSANE. Never seen such a swarm of them in my life.

Beautiful views at the top. At times the hike was difficult but nothing too bad. I did this hike 20 weeks pregnant with my 5 year old and 7 year old. Enjoyed a lunch at the top

Beautiful hike, good workout on the way back up!

Rode my TREK Powerfly 5 from the 64th entrance along the Raptor and Cape Henry Trail to the boat ramp and back. It’s a beautiful area with excellent birding and easy access to salt water marshes and shoreline beaches. Lots of shade trees.
