Performed this hike with my partner. She is not to used to the elevation and imbalanced surfaces that the loose rocks imposed on her and thus the duration took a little longer. However, I must give her credit, we begun in Positano and climbed up several thousands of stairs (or at least it definitely felt like it) and we took the stairs to the top to the highest point for pictures in the rocky arch. We then went back on the decent to return to the path in which we continued to hike to The end of the trail in Bomerano.
All in all the hike was picturesque and remarkable. I would love to do it again. For an experienced moderate to experienced hiker I would say it could be completed in 2.5-3hrs (fast paced, no recovery spots). For the more irregular or inexperienced hikers I’d say enjoy the view, take the time to stop and enjoy the scenery, encapsulate every minute of your surroundings, take as many pictures as you can and definitely stop and the little cafes (1 or 2) along the way for a picturesque drink and relax. So, take your time. Extend the hike from a 2.5h fast paced hike to a 5-7h enjoyable cruise.
Happy hiking ✌️

Beautiful hike through the Gorge! A moderately difficult hike mainly due to slippery rocks, stairs, and tourists stopping to take pictures. The view of the rocks and waterfalls along the path were wonderful. I will definitely be back!

The waterfall itself is magnificent, and the bridge adds a unique vantage point and looks pretty cool in photos too. I gave it 3 stars because unless you come super early or super late, you’re going to be with hundreds of other people. If you can manage to come when there’s little to no crowds, it’s easily a 5 star waterfall.

For a continuous moderately paced hike, you can make it up to the summit in 1 hour. If you start right before 7 the mountain will shade you up until the last mile of the hike. Between 2- 1 1/2 mile point from the summit there seems to be an endless set of steps that are pretty challenging. Past the potato chip rock there is not much else and a radio station that ruins part of the view, but overall a decent hike.

Hiked in on 05/05/2018, and out on 05/07/2018. The hike in to the village was easy to follow, but 2 out of 3 of us got blisters from the loose gravel/rocks that made our feet roll in unusual ways. I brought a blister pack that fixed us up for the rest of the trip.
We stayed at the Lodge in the village, and found everyone to be helpful and most to be friendly. The man running the Sinyella store was very nice.
We hiked down to Lil Navajo falls the first day, and did some wading there. The trail from the village to the falls is a very fine dirt/sand, like walking at the beach.
The second day we hiked over to Havasu Falls and Mooney Falls. Both bueatiful, as expected. We swam at both falls, and enjoyed the day.
Because of our blisyers, we didn't attempt to find Beaver Falls. Maybe next time.
On the third day, we left the Lodge at 4:00 am to beat the sun. I had a good, bright headlamp that made it possible. Even so, we had to backtrack and find the trail again twice in the dark of the morning. Fortunately, only a couple hundred feet each time. It got easier to pick the right path as the sun came up.
All in all, a great time and place to be.

Always great. I first came here in high school with my school. It was amazing, and unforgettable, so I've been back 4 times.
Just pack light. You don't need much. I have tented, and hammocked. I prefer to sleep in a hammock, and it's lighter to pack in and out. If you're a wuss, you can pay to have your bags taken out by helicopter. We actually did it one year, and it was worth it. $10 a bag.
2 years ago I took my 9 year old. She hiked in and out, and did amazing. What a trooper!

Very challenging but worth it! Everything from rock climbing, beautiful views of the Hudson, to waterfalls and babbling brooks.

DON'T TAKE THE INDIAN TRAIL... We started hiking gorge and from Jacob's ladder we headed back on Indian trail, the gorge trail as the name suggests is awesome but gets crowded but worth it. The Indian trail has maybe 1-2 viewing points and it doesn't have anything that makes us feel that we are at a glen... So just make sure you get back in the gorge itselff

Fantastic trail!! Great workout headed up the red dot trail and incredible scenery toward the end of the blue dot on the way back. I was traveling through on a business trip and I am so glad that I took the time to do this hike! Good trail shoes are a must - it’s very rocky and slippery if wet.

Amazingly not much crowd at 5 pm today ... wonderful trail !!

Awesome views of Pennsylvania from the NJ side of the water gap. The trail can be rough in some places. Check out my full write up which includes directions and things to look out for.

We visited today with our two-year-old. While the hike above/after the bridge is closed, we had a nice quarter-ish mile walk up to the bridge, which is a main viewing point of the falls. Had a kid in a carrier backpack going up the hill, so the round trip was brief, but still made us break a little sweat. Uphill walk but nicely paved. Expect a crowd on the bridge. Parking lot leads right to the falls, so you can’t miss it. Only giving four starts bc main hike was closed and the first viewpoint should be marked as a separate east hike.

Awesome workout! Treacherous hiking! Short trails, beautiful falls.

This was a very challenging trail. If you are not prepare and fit don't do it. If you are afraid of heights don't attempt it either. It's a very crowded trail with a lot of dogs. I met a lot of hikers on this trail, some were friendly, others rude. I seen a lady with a 6 month baby on her back. This is definitely not a trail for that.

Great hike and what a view

The falls are beautiful.

But this used to be a place you could sit by the water at the end of the trail and have a picnic. now they have it all caged off.

This was lovely. The views were amazing. Fun to do with the kids. Would do it again!!

best time to climb Stone Mountain is either early in the morning or just before sunset. To see the sun rising or setting and the lights off Atlanta in the distance is awesome.

A beautiful hike for all ages. Not to hard. Being able To see the narrows, waterfalls, bridges all in one hike. It does get crowded but was still very enjoyable.

It wasn’t to hard but it let me know that Mother Nature can do wonders. Loved it.

Fun all the way up

Absolutely loved my time here! It’s a beautiful oasis worth the wait and effort to go!

Went early in the morning, less crowded. Fantastic view from top. Lots of switchbacks.

Awesome trail, friendly people along the way just enough incline to get a good workout

I did the hike with my 5yo son yesterday, a very hot day. I fed him constantly, hydrated him constantly, stopped often and he kept going all the way to the top. Congrats Issei!!
WARNING. You need to know what you are doing, do not attempt this if you are not an expert or your child is reckless. NEVER look away from them. My son is very disciplined, a good listener and stops EVERYTIME I tell him to do so. Nonetheless children that age are unpredictable and disaster could be around the corner. It is up to you to eliminate risk. Took 4 1/2 hour on white/yellow/green/red. I think the full loop would have been too much. Start early on summer days. Gets pretty hot soon. Even on the top. We used one gallon of water between the two of us.
I gave it 4 stars but not for the trail itself but because the conditions the people left the hike in. Graffiti defacing rocks, plastic everywhere... C’mon people!! Carry your own garbage!

Great trail I love it

Moderately difficult trail. Definitely wear boots. Wet and slippery in several areas. Do the Orange trail to the left to go up. At the top turn right at the fire pit and take the Red Trail. Ironically the first marker you see is a Blue Marker. This is the Red Trail even though the first market is Blue. Several sections could use a grab wire or rope. One slip and you are over the edge. Winter time be prepared for lots of ice.

Great trail and doesn’t take long! If you want to relax after the hike, there is also a picnic area at the boat launch just nearby.

Did on a hot day. Bring a lot of water! worth it for the fun potato chip rock pictures!
