love the views and cliffs. much wild life

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

So right off the batnn the trail isn't marked well. The sign that leads into the trail, which says nothing about it actually being the trail, has a wasp nest in it. There is no sign telling you which way the trail goes, so I went to the right. Bad move, because the trail ended after a minute of running. What's even more fun, there was a nasty wasp nest hiding in the bushes, and one managed to sting me right in the neck. This trail needs to at least be marjed better, and having two wasp nests is kind of frustrating. So... at least until I come back and go the other way, this trail is not recommended. If you do go on it, watch out for the wasps.

beautiful trail, but not marked well. got lost lol.

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, scenic hike. Take a waterproof backpack, wear proper hiking boots, bring water and a snack. On very nice days it can get busy and there are a lot of people who don't hike with proper attire, but it didn't bother us. People were very courteous and friendly. Take the Orange trail to hike up the falls, it's nice and cool, lots of great waterfalls! We didn't hike the whole Orange trail, once we got to the top we cut over to go down on the Blue marked trail. It is very rocky, slippery in some spots, but the adventure is fun!

scenic. Us and dogs enjoyed. will return

Fantastic hike. Very difficult climb and certainly dangerous at many spots along the climb. We took our 15 year old and 6 year old (who is tough as nails). They did really great. Do NOT attempt this climb without hiking boots and pants. We were crawling in spots and on all fours going up. Worth the hour to the top. The falls are breathtaking! I was amazed at how many people were climbing back down the same way they came up. Seriously dangerous! When you get all the way at the top of the last fall you’ll find a fire ring. The trail on your right takes you back down a very easy decent right into the parking lot.

A very nice trail with paths that are very fitting to the name. It was my first time hiking there and I absolutely loved it.

As of today Trails A and B are closed but the trail to Great Falls overlook is great. It’s flat, smooth, small pebbles; easy for walking or biking. The overlook is incredible.

Great trail with a few areas of steeper incline to get the heart really pumping. I did the entire trail, however, I would avoid the southern parts of the trail for the next few weeks until the bugs and flooding die down if you don’t want to deal with gnats and mud. The southern portion was super muddy, I was covered from the knees down by the time I finished. I was also followed by a swarm of bugs and mosquitoes the whole time, and walked through about 7 spider webs on the southern portion. Otherwise, the Boone trail is a really enjoyable, peaceful hike!

Great hike! The trail isn’t marked well and it’s easy to get off track without using the map on AllTrails. The waterfalls were amazing, especially with all the rain, but quite a bit of the trail had ankle deep standing water too. The overlooks were also just as beautiful.

Really fun hike along the AT. Take the North Trail where it splits off from the AT for the best views on a clear day. And the South Trail is a lot of fun - if you enjoy a good rock scramble!!

Great trail very physical need to have good boots and be careful lots of fun spectacular views

definitely worth the effort

we got there at 10 on a summer Sunday and it was nice, but packed when we left. highly recommend going up on the left and down on the right. took the blue trail with our tough 8 year old and it was about 2h with a lunch stop

love this place!!! so beautifulll

This used to be one of my favorite loops but the crowd really kills it. Last time I was there, a child went full Tarzan and swung from a branch. Cute, until the branch came down and hit me in the head, nearly knocking me down the dangerous falls. The other children laughed while the mother scoffed at me. I guess she didn't like the angry look on my face. The only person who was sincerely apologetic was the father. This is dangerous terrain and if your children cannot be respectful or if you cannot control.them, LEAVE YOUR KIDS AT HOME.

I see people taking the trail backwards and coming DOWN the fall side, with tears in their eyes because they didn't think it was going to be so hard. I see them not heeding the warnings and wearing flip flops. People are dumb.

The nature is gorgeous and serene... The falls are beautiful and wicked and plentiful. I wish people would be more respectful and NOT LEAVE THEIR LITTER BEHIND!

The hike is one with a fairly difficult incline, lightly scrambled, often muddy. The trail is small with enough room for one or two people side by side. Difficult, dangerous trail but not too demanding of anyone who is in shape or has full function of feet and knees.

Challenging and fun!!! Definitely coming back. Beautiful scenery.

Initial incline is a real leg burner, but the views are worth all the work. This was a fun hike, different terrains, areas that become slightly challenging, but it was a never ending cycle of scenery and ridge views. Def recommend

One of my favorite little hikes. Involves a bit of climbing up rocks and finding the trail every now and then, but the views are worth every second. The three falls are awesome and the overlook is a must see. Very fun hike!

Three waterfalls total. The top one is more square in shape. Overall,good hike. It's honestly not as bad as people say. Took my girlfriend there on her first real hike. Just take it slowly and all will go well :)

Maybe I missed the overlook? This is def not hard and should be rated moderate. It is very crowded, the waterfalls are pretty and it is a little confusing finding the trail but relatively well marked once you’re on it. I took the red trail up, supposedly steeper side. If you go this route you see the waterfalls fairly quickly. I came down the orange trail, much less crowded but still a good bit of traffic

Tough ascend from the start for circa 45 minutes. Interrupted the ascend with talks to the 5 or 6 AT hikers we encountered, especially near the well where they collected/treated the water that came out of a little pipe (identified by a white sign on the tree above it). Hiked on the AT until the 2nd entrance to the North Trail (near the 476 Tunnel). Then took the North Trail East, then the charcoal trail, then the Prairie Grass Trail, then the D&L Trail along the river back to the car. All was relative well marked. I think we hiked for circa 6 miles and it took us a bit more than 4hrs. Views on the North Trail were fantastic but the noise from the cars below did not make it very peaceful (that is why I rated this hike 4 stars). Came across lots of different types of vegetation and trails. Came across and ate wild blue berries and black raspberries. The descent down the Charcoal trail was the hardest due to all the stones and boulders on this trail. Was a pleasure to walk down the Prairie Grass Trail towards the river.

An absolutely stunning hike!! This hike is packed with scrambling, climbing, impressive waterfalls and an abandoned railroad tunnel (which is open to the public). While my boyfriend and I are not experienced hikers, we did manage to complete the entire loop. With that said, invest in some quality hiking boots and use extreme caution when near the falls. Tip: go to the left trail, instead of the right trail, first when beginning the hike. The left trail is consistently strenuous due to the steep footing and rocky terrain. Complete the difficult part of the trail first. Many people were turning around after the last fall, however, you can continue by following the well-marked trail blazes. This will lead you to a less intense, more secure climb down to the parking lot.

Did the A trail with 2 teens. challenging spots for a nice workout. Not too crowed. Going back again for sure!

Hiked with our 11, 10, and 5 year-olds, and they loved it. However, we came across several families with scared/crying/injured kids. This is NOT a hike for unpracticed families. Hiking boots, not sneakers, definitely help kids with the upward rock scrambles.

Absolutely stunning. The challenging terrain is worth the views!

Did this trail on a weekday in September and only saw a handful of people on it. Steady decline that didn't require too much hard pedaling and numerous places to take a break along with taking some incredible photos. I parked in Jim Thorpe and had someone drop me off at the White Haven trailhead , which worked to perfection. Looking forward to coming back.
