Beautiful waterfall. Lots of rocks and roots along the path and a little crowded but it was a weekend! Overall very nice hike!

Super easy trail with an amazing water fall. Avoid this trail on the weekends as it can be extremely crowded. Quick hike with a rewarding view.

This trail delivered just what I was looking for as far as being a bit challenging but nothing crazy and the payoff at the top was amazing ! I went on a Sunday morning , on the way up it was only minimally busy, the rock itself was pretty crowded and on the way back down around 1pm was very heavily trafficked and SO MANY off leash dogs, which would have been fine as long as you don't have a dog reactive dog with you, as my friend did . I would not suggest bringing a dog unless it is extremely well trained and non dog reactive because it appears that off leash dogs on this trail is a big thing .

I would totally do this hike again but probably on a weekday or a colder day to avoid the crowd.

Numerous beautiful views on this < 2 hr loop trail. A little muddy today and lots of fellow hikers but worth it

not horribly difficult. it's is almost completely uphill on the outward leg. lots of springs so the trail gets pretty wet. We did it in tennis shoes and had no issues. amazing view at the end.

Worth the hike. Easy trail and beautiful views. The way in is an upward climb and seemed more moderate to me because I was carrying my toddler in a pack all the way up, so I’m sure it’s much easier than it felt

Beautiful trail and easy to navigate. Definitely worth going the whole way up to the falls. We brought our dogs and they loved it.

This is a really great hike, mainly due to the whole experience of staying at a hut overnight, the summit, watching the sunrise and some good views. Just to note, it is not an overly picturesque hike so worth managing expectations

We hiked from the 5th Station and stayed at a mountain hut at the 8th Station (this took 3hrs). Then we left our hut at 12:30am and reached the summit ~4am ( 3.5hrs) - there is a lot of traffic at the summit so it was slow going to get to the top

Some tips:
- this website is a great resource: https://www.garyjwolff.com/climbing-mt-fuji.html
- it’s very windy and cold at the summit, think it was minus 10 degrees Celsius so packing warm cloths is a must
- take headlamps/torch for the dark
- hiking poles are worth getting
- booking a mountain hut in advance may be worthwhile during peak periods
- the descent is hard going as the trail is mainly made from crumbly gravel, which causes you to slip and slide around

AWESOME HIKE! I'm not big on waterfalls but this one is WORTH IT! There are several waterfalls along the trail but the one at the end of the trial is a beauty.

Beautiful !!!

This hike is much longer than stated. we clocked almost 14 miles. This is difficult and very strenuous! The view is worth it, but make sure you begin early enough and bring snacks!

We are flatlanders from Florida in our late 50s, early 60s and found this to be a comfortable hike. 2 bridges and one creek crossing. Very few roots and rocks to navigate. Go early to avoid crowds. Sunrise or shortly thereafter. It was crowded on our way out.

If you don’t want to spend all day hiking this trail...you can drive to the summit and enjoy the same views. The hike wasn’t worth it after finding this little tid bit out. Also...almost got mauled by a bear.

Great last min idea to get some outdoor time while vacationing in Asheville. Waterfall is beautiful.

This is a really nice 1/2 day hike. The payoff at the end with the view is really beautiful, especially in the fall. Definitely would suggest making that your lunch spot. I would rate this moderate not hard, at least when comparing it to some other hikes in the region such as table rock. That being said however, it is overall an upwards gradient just about the whole time, but the switchbacks in the first half are generally pretty smooth and gradual which is why I rate it more moderate (I saw young children making it to the top...albeit it took them extra time). Lots of dogs in the trail. It took us 1 hour 20 minutes to get up with one short water break, stayed at the view for about an hour, and then took 1 hour 10 minutes to come back down. Trail was pretty busy, but did go on a Saturday.

We were there 2 days after rainstorms and the falls were gorgeous. The trails in pretty good shape, and i would say good for "all ages" except for some steep hills and stairs. Close to the river can be SLIPPERY and dangerous, but the trail stays a bit away.

Hiked this with my 7 year old; took about 3 hours. We both loved it! Got a little nervous go be up so high at the summit with just the kiddo, dog and me; but a good opportunity to teach safety. It was beautiful, especially during leaf season. I would not rate this trail as hard; more moderate than anything. My son and I even trail ran the last mile.

Great hike for our whole family! My 3.5 year old did the entire thing independently and my 65 year old FIL loved it. Took us about 2 hours total. Don't stop until you get to the top oast the second bridge... You will definitely know when you have hit the big, gorgeous falls at the top. Trail had some parts where you had to walk over large rocks in the creek and at the falls you have to maneuver over through big boulders to get the best view...DO IT!

Hiked this trail November 1st just before cold front came through. 3 things about this trail-rocky , rooty and windy, well marked and maintained.. Need good hiking shoes at a minimum, poles optional, and bring layered clothing with wind breaker , gloves and hat a must as it gets nippy at top . Can be a challenge if not in at least average shape. Plan on 5-8 hours round trip. Well worth doing and you get the pleasure of knocking off the highest peak east of the mighty Mississippi.

Question: the 10 miles it says it is, is this total? or each way?

Easy hike to two major waterfalls. The trek to the Upper Falls was not as dangerous as I read that it would be...piece of cake. Close to a 4 mile round trip.

Short but nice.

Easy out and back hike. Don’t a bad waterfall considering our simple the trail is. High traffic though, even during the week.

This trail was nice! There were a lot of rocks which made it more difficult but it wasn’t the worst rocky hike I’ve ever done. When we went it was extremely foggy and couldn’t see a whole lot.... however we did hike the additional 3.6 miles to Douglas Falls and it was beautiful!

Great waterfall

This waterfall was cool but the other two further down are way better!

Great hike and fantastic views

My review is from the perspective of an amateur landscape photographer.

I was pleasantly surprised by these falls. The lower falls are very photogenic and easily accessible. There are a number of good opportunities for different compositions, assuming you are comfortable with some easy rock scrambling and the slight possibility of getting your feet wet. the only downside is the trail is very popular (great scenery and relatively easy hike) and it may be difficult to setup your shot without waiting for others to clear the immediate area. But it's worth the wait.

There are also some nice spots along the trail to photograph the stream and some minor cascades.

Overall a nice outing with many opportunities for waterfall photography.
