$10 entrance fee but you can walk right up to the overlooks from the parking lot. It was a bit too crowded for my liking but beautiful views. The trail was pretty easy. Really cool experience if you have never been here before!

This was a fun, easy hike! Beautiful views. We went in October and the colors were amazing!

Beautiful- well worth the elevation climb out

The map is misleading. It takes you to the gate by the water treatment plant. You have to access this trail through Lone Star Park. Easy hike, even on a scorcher of a day. May want to go back to go fishing.

Lovely fairly easy

Easy hike on the way down - pretty much downhill all the way. The way back up is what makes it a moderate hike! Beautiful falls! Follows the creek throughout the hike!

Very easy trail to see a beautiful waterfall. Dog friendly on leash.

Great waterfalls! Definitively need to watch your step, especially if wet. Not good for hikers with knee issues. Some of our group members hiked down the trail and then up the fire road. We all met at Fisherman’s gap overlook for lunch on the rock with an amazing view of the valley.

Hiked on 09/01/2018. Pouring down the rain which made for a fun challenging hike! It’s slippery when wet so tread carefully. Although there are two signs at the beginning of the hike saying no dogs permitted on this trail, it didn’t stop people from bringing them. Saw 3 on the round trip hike. Was crowded despite the rain so make sure you are prepared for lots of steps and shaded views. The creek was flowing the entire way so made great photo shots for my new Nikon. Recommend this place but go early or late in the afternoon to avoid crowds

Nice short hike but was there to photograph the waterfall. There can be big crowds at times.

Yes indeed the trek up is a doozy hike, but all worth it. It allows you to stop along the way and cool off by the waterfall creek.

Amazing vista at the summit!

Creek makes for great views the whole hike.

Great hike but very crowded, crossed the creek 3 times water low had no problem. The falls at the end were very pretty!

Great views maintain trails marked areas a lot of historical points

waterfall is pretty and provides good photo ops, but is very popular due to ease, short distance and of course, the waterfall. so popular that it becomes touristy and find lots of folks not accustomed to hiking, climbing down wet, steep rocks in flip flops or families with teenagers barefoot in the falls soaking wet posing for pictures, etc. regardless, go on a dry day as rocks can be very slippery.

This was a wonderful family hike. Our 4 year old daughter was able to climb, explore, and keep up at a good pace. We reached the overlook at the beginning of sunset and the view was phenomenal! It was a wonderful and tranquil experience overall. We saw several families on the hike with children of all ages.

Great short hike for families and young children. We've taken our kids here twice over two years - first year both in backpacks. This year our four year old hiked down and up on her own stream and our almost three year old hiked down herself and back up on my back. Most of the hike is next to the stream and there are a couple of gentle places for young kids to get in and get their feet wet. The bottom of the main falls has a nice pool which can be entered but I'd make sure an adult went with kids as the falls are right there and the rocks are slick. Bonus yesterday, we watched a barn owl perched about thirty feet away from us as he moved around over the course of fifteen minutes. Our kids love this hike.

This trail was definitely difficult for me, but I rested a bunch along the way and I was able to make it! Mind you, I’m not in the best of shape. I love this hike. I went right after a good rain and the falls were full and beautiful!

Great family hike. We have done this a couple of times with two young daughters in backpacks and when they were a little older our three year old walking most of the way. Gentle incline. Bring a picnic lunch. The top has great views from the rocky pile.

Well groomed trail. My wife and I encountered numerous people, young and old. Nice falls!

Fun waterfall hike. Some of the river crossings will result in wet feet so next time I do this will bring water shoes. Go early to avoid crowds.

Twelve of us stopped here on our way back from Seneca Rocks to Yough Lake. We’d already hiked all day, so we were pretty spent. That being said, this was definitely a walk, not a hike. It was almost completely stairs, and remember that you have to come back up after going down. I agree with the many reviewers who call this moderate, not easy. We had changed out of hiking shoes and into flip flops, and for some, that was a mistake. There were two viewing platforms along the boardwalk, and the falls were beautiful. I now understand why they’re on every postcard and magnet in every WV gift shop.

Sensational views and a family-friendly hike! Keep your eyes peeled for bears.

loved the serenity at 7 AM and the views from the river trail. explored all trails a little. by 9AM it gets very busy and yet it's still peaceful. The 10 dollar entrance fee is a bit high but i am glad i visited.

Beautiful and easy enough even for moderately out of shape folks like me.

amazing scenery take the mansion tour very nice

the trail is a bit hard to find. it is in lone star lake park. we didn't make it all the way to the trail. we will go back and know where to go next time. better signage is needed. I wasn't sure I could drive my car all the way back.

We hiked the trail on August 15th. We found the trail to be very well marked and moderately busy. The trail is wide and accommodates traffic in both directions. We didn't notice any horses on trail or any evidence that they had been on the trail recently. The falls are beautiful and make for some nice pictures of our trip to share with others.
