Great trail for all ages. The views are spectacular!

Great easy trail with a payoff. Worth doing if you're in the area.

Awesome experience! I’ve never done a subterranean hike and this was absolutely amazing. It wasn’t too crowded today. I went al the way back on the lower trail until I belly crawled to a point where my brain said enough! I did a small portion of the upper trail as I soon realized my knee injury didn’t approve. I will return and finish that tho. Again. Amazing! But please please please bring a headlamp or flashlight. Saw a few iPhone users and it just didn’t cut it.

Kids had a blast. My kids are younger so we stuck with the lower caves. But, I would love to come back at some point for the upper section. Definitely worth while for everyone to explore. Bring good lights and back ups.

great short trail to the top and bottom of the falls. three kids and myself enjoyed this very much.

You can just go rogue in the caves with a headlamp it was absolutely sick

It was beautiful and refreshing standing on the back of the fall!!!

Upper section not too crowded (Friday 9/14/18 afternoon). Some road/traffic noise along lower section. Beautiful forested area. Decent elevation change with some switchbacks.

Hiked on 9/8. The upper falls loop wasn’t too crowded—but lower falls looked a lot busier. Gorgeous views all around due to a dry and sunny day. Couldn’t have asked for a better morning hike to start the day.

two waterfalls in one hike. nice!

had a great time walking this Trail, ended up doing the loop twice because of the incline and sheer magnitude of the view you get both at the top of the falls and lower Falls. Highly recommend

Delightful paved stroll down to the basalt shoreline where Thor’s Well thrills immediately before and after high tide. Use caution! The spout it also fun, as the surf churns up the channel and pounds the rocks concussively.

Highly reccomend stable shoes. Took my dog on this hike and had a blast but the trail is not flat. I didn't have too much trouble but when I wasn't paying attention to my feet I rolled my ankle over a few times. Definitely my bad for wearing running shoes. Not very difficult, but I would have to say going down on the last treck was the more difficult part for me with my dog. He's still learning trail etiquette.

We had so much fun on this trail! We did the harder upper cave with my partner and four kids ranging in age of 6 to 19, they all did really great! Tips: bring a jacket, sturdy shoes, long pants, and a GOOD headlamp. You want your hands for climbing. Being an extra flashlight too. I took us almost an hour and a half to get through just the upper cave portion, not including the trail back. Enjoy!!

Very green, beautiful falls even in March.

As of now, the old highway is closed due to the Sept 2017 fire that burned though. The view of the waterfall is gorgeous but i does get really crowded. Was able to hike up to the bridge, but any further hiking was closed off.

One of the coolest experiences we've had on a hike! We did the more challenging upper cave and, while it definitely took some careful navigating and agility, it was totally worth it. We would have been in rough shape without our sturdy shoes, headlamps, and gloves (not so much for warmth, but to protect your hands as you'll be using them to steady yourself A LOT).

Fun hike for adults and kids! Chilly in the cave, make sure to bring jackets.

Great loop hike! But it wasn’t 2 miles. More like 4.4 which was great! Rocky terrain, shoes with good soles are recommended. From the lower park, take the left hand trail at the Y. It will take you to the lower falls within about a mile. Keep going and eventually you will reach the upper falls ~2 miles. Then loop back down on the other side of the stream. Moderate only because of the terrain. The elevation gain was about 1000 ft. Great on a beautiful day. You can walk behind both falls. Please be kind though, and pack in pack out. This is a very tourist-y spot.

It’s an amazing hike that I can’t believe is unregulated. It is typically cool and damp inside the cave so bring a jacket and good quality lights. Those caves eat up the light and it is what true darkness looks like.

The trail is super short and currently closed. Not a bad trail but the bride and waterfall get very crowded as the day rolls on. I recommend going early. Right bow everything is fenced off, I would wait until the trail is open and the area has had some chance to regrow after these fires

Quick but worth it. stunning views, way too busy

Great falls to see if you haven’t check it out before. Crowded with tourist but it is a sight to see and enjoy. Many of the trails are closed off due to the fire from 2017.

Beautiful easy hike to amazing views of the bridal view falls. Go past the wooden bridge and head right to get to the picturesque view of the falls.

Great

Beautiful. Sad it was closed at the end of the bridge. Hopefully it will be open next time. Lots of people too.

Beautiful place. Kids did great!

Short, easy trail to a beautiful falls view
