Great short hike to a awesome waterfall. Make sure its been raining a bit prior to going fall was little slower than usual but still a beautiful place. Kids loved it as wasn't long at all.

Awesome place with beautiful nature!!!

Beautiful trail. Saw lots of deer. They weren’t even afraid of us. Perfectly marked trail and beautiful scenery. Brisk walk, nothing too strenuous. A couple of uphill spots make for a great little workout.

Went today and absolutely loved this trail!!! By far one of the easiest trails I've been on. The waterfall was gorgeous!!! Did see one snake, but that is to be expected. There was a couple gorgeous horses where we parked and they let the kids pet them. Beautiful scenery!

Beautiful scenery! Trail markings were a little confusing and be prepared to see evidence of the horses that are allowed on the trail.

The scenery and nature never cease to amaze me. One of my favorite views is from the pinnacle overlook.

The trails here are very dangerous and slick. I fall and hurt myself. My boyfriend slid almost fall over a cliff and lost his walking stick. If you go here be extremely careful and let someone know where you are going.

Very nice trail. Make sure to do the white trails as well.

We hiked this trail over the weekend. It was very beautiful, quiet and peaceful. A very beautiful place and we will be going back again

It was a good hike, not great. We did the entire red course and it was 4 Miles as opposed to the 5.5 listed on this app. We did spur off onto the white trail at times and if we had not, we’d have missed the waterfall (which was more like a water/rock feature with a small pool at the bottom). Easy access to cool off or take your shoes off to dip your feet! The over look was another highlight of the hike. Not too muddy, but there were spots that were along the route. I’d consider this a great place to hike with kids/family as you can take the blue or green trails back to the Nature Center at many points and shorten the length of this hike, which is the only thing I’d say might be difficult for beginners. The signage and available maps were wonderful! One of the best marked hikes we’ve been on. The drive back into Ravens Run was beautiful on our July morning!

The trail is well marked and in great condition. There is a steep climb on the way out but I hike to challenge my body and this is the perfect introduction for someone training.

We hiked the upper rim trail to the falls (not much flow) and returned to the junction for the lower trail down many metal steps into the gorge. The lower trail was much more impressive. Trail signage was minimal and trails were often overgrown. We hiked about two miles.

Super hard to find and google maps doesn’t do a good job of getting you there, but that’s just part of getting there. Once you find it, it’s a super cool trail with a lot to explore.

I hike here quiet frequently. After a hard rain it is quiet slippery.

Love the hiking trails. I feel like some trails are not labeled correctly for example the heritage trail is rated easy. I would say it’s more moderate.

very beautiful

The trailhead could be difficult to find. I’d say the trail difficulty to the falls is easy-moderate. Access above falls is a little more challenging. We hiked after and during wet weather. This makes for a more spectacular water fall experience. Word of precaution: the trail and boulders are very slick during even the slightest rain.

These trails were so much fun!!! So beautiful and lots of options!!!! It was a little muddy and slick in some places but over all the trails are very well marked and there is so much to see. We took the whole family and it was easy enough for kids, most areas were stroller friendly (we have a running stroller with bike tires) and even though most time dogs are not aloud on the trails they aloud us to bring ours due to the horses not being out on the trails. I love that you can either make a whole day out of going and exploring or take shorter trails and just be out for a hour or so. There are so many options and so much to see!! One of our favorite hikes!!!

June 2018: saw a rattlesnake, bear... and LOTS of TICKS!!

Parked on the side of the road indicated by the trail head, easy to find the trail. The first bit of this trail was overgrown with a lot of brush coming into the path. Almost stepped on a rattlesnake unknowingly, which turned aggressive as we noticed it. A bit startling. The middle of the trail is EPIC, as it consists of cave-like structures and trails that weave through them. The actual waterfall isn’t at the end of this trail, it is about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way through. It seems the end of this trail is the parking lot for the scenic overlook trail. On the way back we spotted a large (150+lb) black bear on the trail. Also a bit startling. Lived to tell this tale. Only harm done was two tick bites, sore legs, and some general anxiety as a moderately inexperienced hiker.

Very pretty but a little rough. I am a beginner hiker and it was pretty hard for me. On my way down it’s pretty steep with a lot of drop offs. The trail to the cave and creek is pretty narrow and straight up rock stairs. On the way back we took a different trail that was mainly a gravel rode but it was pretty steep and up the whole way!! My fit bit told me I walked up 25 flights of stairs lol!! Very pretty and great views but for those that are not good with up hill or working on building up endurance this is very challenging!! Also had my dog (Shepard) and my youngest with us and this trail is not stroller friendly (we have a light weight running stroller with bike tires) my dog loved it but there were a few areas that were narrow and I was afraid she’d fall.

Great place for a quick day hike, awesome scenery, and great trails!

Nice and scenic once you get to the bottom.

I hiked to Makers Arch first. Trail was adequate but a bit overgrown. (1 mile). Then continued to Yahoo Falls. Beautiful rock formations abound once you get into the ridges. The falls is amazing and is worth the hike. However, don't take this hike lightly. I did the 5 plus miles in just a bit over 2 hours. Take water with you and apply bug spray before going into the woods. Although All Trails rates the trail as moderate because of the distance and elevation change it is on the Hard end of Moderate. Great Hike!

We loved the red trail. The waterfall was amazing and the butterflies were basically swarming us at the waterfall. We didn't find the trail to be hard, but can be muddy and slick in areas. We saw a deer and turkey along the trail. Make sure to take the short white trails off the red as they lead to some cool things to see (waterfalls, mill, overlook, etc) and aren't very long, then you just hike them back to the red trails!!
