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!

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.

It was tough to do and an awesome challenge. But take the “scenic route” that is an off shoot of it. It adds a little bit of distance but walks along the open side of the mountain.

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!!!!

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

This trail is very easy it is about a mile down to the falls. I recommend bringing water because you could be at the falls for a while. I recommend this trail for all ages because kids like to play in the creek near the falls. If you come in the summer you can go swimming. Over all this is a great trail and the falls are beautiful.

my wife and I hike this trail a lot, mostly on the winter. Hardly used in winter but can get real busy in spring and summer . Best part of this trail is I can be on it in minutes because it's barely a 100 yard from my house.

Great hike

Fun short trail, waterfall near the end that you can jump off of and swim in.

awesome in the snow

I went on 1.27.18 and the ice was starting to melt. Challenging but beautiful hike. when you get to the trail head stay to the left because you get a better view of the falls

I loved this hike. It rivals my hikes in the grand canyon of Pa. Highly advise that you take the loop trail clockwise. This is a better way to see the falls and it is safer to fall going up if you slip. We went yesterday before it warmed up (28 degrees) and had to use traction spikes in certain areas. I would recommend waiting til warmer temps, but if you do it in the winter where there is ice be very careful!

challenging and beautiful falls view entire way.

Amazing in winter time, great view of the stream and falls

Very challenging hike, winter time there was so much ice on the trail we kept slipping and falling. Wear good hiking boots with traction on the bottom. We hiked the entire loop, so at the beginning of the trail we took a right. It was super steep and tough. When we got to the ridge line it put us on top of the falls then we worked our way down from there stopping at each of the different fall sites. Hard hike but definitely worth it, beautiful!!

Views in the winter are much better, especially with snow providing a contrasting backdrop.

Super fun and scenic hike with waterfalls all the way up! I would rate this more as a medium difficulty rather than hard. I went in mid-April last year which was perfect weather. Would recommend going around this time.

can you safely take this hike without crampons?

Short but pretty trail.

Way too crowded in the summer

Went with the hope of seeing the falls frozen and was not disappointed. Some spots can be a little tricky with the ice but that's to be expected, especially when everything has a coating of snow on it. Bring some Yak Trax or another type of crampons.....they make a world of difference when hiking in winter weather.

excellent little loop trial. 4 miles with a few awesome waterfalls and a great overview of the gorge. cold and snow covered which may have kept the hikers away or it may have been multiple warning signs of death.

Does anyone know if there is snow on this trail or if it has become slippery within the last few days?

This was absolutely one of the best hikes i've been on, it can be trecherous at times so watch your footing especially at the falls but it was beautiful.

We did the Appalachian trail and Blue trail loop. Great day hike with views on blue trail
