Amazing nature hike! Trails are quite difficult, not quite as hard as Glen Onoko but I definitely recommend this one too!

Breathtaking beautiful. Next time I go back, I will be sure to wear hiking shoes. The trails are quite difficult, so be sure to be prepared for a challenge!

You will find parking at the base of the trailhead. There is also a large map that shows you all of the different loops within the trail. this is worth review if it's your first time. As another post states you are going to feel like you are trespassing onto private property until you reach the trail head but you are not. The trails are marked but sometimes you can get confused on what direction you should go. We took a wrong turn into a stripping pit. There is great cell phone service so we just used our all trails map to get us back to where we wanted to be. A few parts of the hike are steep and the ground was pretty loose but overall a good hike.

I drove 6 hours from Cleveland to hike this and some others in the area and this has become a new favorite of mine. I highly recommend hiking up the orange route which is hiking up the falls. From the parking lots, go down the steps to the first trail sign and make a right, go under the bridge and maybe 100 yards later you'll come to a split. GO LEFT which is hiking up the falls. It's more challenging than hiking the other route but FAR more rewarding. There are places to stop and relax/take photos the whole way up. Wear hiking shoes! If you don't take the orange route up, I feel horrible for you - going down the orange route has to be awful (slippery and much more steep). I'm not a waterfall enthusiast so I was a bit reluctant to "waste" my time on this one but it turned out to be really awesome. The only downside to this one is that it's got a ton of people on it, maybe the most of any "hard" trail I've done to date. WEAR HIKING BOOTS - you'll regret it if you don't. Enjoy!

Gorgeous falls! Be sure to wear hiking shoes! I recommend hiking up next to the falls first as coming down on the wet rock would be more difficult.

love love love!

Amazing hike up the Falls! We went to the left of the loop so hiked up next to Falls first....absolutely awesome views and great hiking! I will definitely hike this again!

Did this loop last week. Crossing-over Avalanche Lake saved a lot of time. Very nice hike with nice viewpoints.

Part hiking part rock climbing. Views were beautiful and we saw some hawks. The skyline trail is the most difficult and please pay attention...it’s not for beginners. Bolder climbing for quite some distance. We modified route to make it more like 10 miles round trip.

Be sure to wear hiking boots! beautiful trail and exciting climb.

We did the trail in reverse (going up the falls first). The views of the falls are amazing, although the climb up is moderate difficult.

My discrepancy with this trail is the lack of sufficient markings. We got mildly lost 3 or 4 times after reaching the top of the falls.

Make sure you have a map and compass.

Beautiful trail! Felt like we were in the Last of the Mohicans. Definitely take the trail clockwise as climbing up will be easier than climbing down the rocks along the falls. Not difficult ,but we had to plan how to cross at spots and watch footing in wet and icy spots. Wore hiking boots with great traction.

Short but oh so sweet

Great view! Totally worth it.

Great trail with amazing views. Agree with other reviews about it being a moderate trail. Stick to the trail and you'll be fine.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Not a hike for beginners but I definitely wouldn’t rate it hard. More like moderate. All the falls are absolutely breath taking. If you’re using your phone for pictures I recommend bringing a portable charger because you will need it with the amount of pictures you’ll take! You could easily get away with wearing sneakers. Just some parts are a little slippery and there’s still patches of snow and ice. But overall 10/10 will 100% be going again soon!

it was a gorgeous hike and decently challenging just take your time on the way down I sprained my lcl going to quickly

Had a nice time there in the snow. Easy, enjoyable little hike w/ some cool stone features, and close ups of the waterfalls.

Tons of fun things to explore. I will definitely go back.

Absolute breathtaking hike! Quite a challenge with most of this hike being rocky slopes. I like to do this backwards where you hike to the falls vs. seeing the falls first. Wear shoes with good grip and slip resistant. Get there early as it gets crowded, and dont forget your cameras!!!!

very difficult but absolutely worth it. We took the long way and hiked about 6 miles. lots of rock scrambling! would recommend to experienced hikers.

Difficult climb chose to do it the other day after a snowstorm. The hike was beautiful with the snow covered trees but unfortunately we had zero visibility at top but we still enjoyed the loop. Would like to revisit in the summer!

Hiked out from Johns brook lean too’s. Good hike, had older kids on their first backpacking trip. Colder at the top than expected in August.

good place to look at river also

Hiked this back in August. It was my second high peak hike, so it was a long, rough day. The way up was uneventful, but still relatively steep and difficult. Summits were rainy and foggy with no views. It started pouring on the way down, making the one major section of steep rock pretty dangerous.

Trail was heavily trafficked with very friendly people. Took us about 8 hrs total. Highly recommend trekking poles (we didn't have them), your knees will thank you later.

Nice easy stroll. The park has more to see than just the trail. Enjoyed our tour through the Atalanta Castle during our stop.

Definitely not for beginners but an amazing trail nonetheless with beautiful views.

Great hike
