Not safe for dogs yet. Falls are gushing and icy. Make sure to wear hiking boots, the trail is very rocky and can be slippery at times. Requires some maneuvering.

conditions were perfect. the cold created spectacular views. Best time of year to enjoy this trail without the crowds. don't forget to explore the old train tunnel post hike

short trail but awesome quick workout.

The view at the end of the hike was breathtaking. I went in winter time and it was incredible seeing the falls half frozen. If you are hiking this hike in the winter time it may be tricky! Me and my dog made it but I feel we were on the wrong trail. After reading reviews it looks like you need to go to the left of the bridge. However, we went to the right and followed a beaten down deer path. The destination was the same but it may have made it a little trickier scaling down the steep and icy ravine with no rope guidance. I recommend this hike but be weary it’s not easy and you will get wet.

Amazing hike. One of our favorites. Our daughters age 7 & 9 loved climbing the rocks. We went at the beginning of November. The weather was perfect and the foliage was beautiful.

Nice short hike with some granite switchbacks. The view is amazing! Took my dog @TheDewyLewy and he enjoyed every last second of it.

Real nice trail, even in January. Great views and a good mix of inclines and creek cutbacks to make for a nice little hike. Road noise is definitely there, but it doesn't make or break it for me.

This is a nice trail with some decent views. It’s good for a day hike if you live nearby. Lots of people, though and not enough parking for the amount of people. Trails are well marked- you definitely won’t get lost.

I’m a beginner hiker and I thought this was a challenging trail. That said, it was 100% worth it. The views were amazing! Went 1/6/19, gorgeous day ~ 50 days and the falls were flowing!

Such a good hike!!! Challenging, beautiful views.

We love you Glen CoCo!!

great trail close to town. definitely moderate with some steep inclines, you'll need boots, we hiked on New Year's Day after heavy rain and the trail was muddy and slippery. great views of the Ohio River. too bad there is so much road noise from Gender Road. Lots are not well marked but the trail is!

New Years Day! Wonderful hike to start the year. As others have stated that Trail is not well marked at least in the beginning and near the end. After you park and come down the steps turn to the right and go under the track area. You can go straight ahead but it is more difficult or you can turn right and follow the blazes on the trees. We went straight along the river and that in itself earned thed difficult rating. Because of the rains this year the falls were outstanding! Superior! After viewing top falls we followed the blue blazes then ted to the bottom.

This is not the kind of hike I would take a beginner in poor shape.

Fun, short trail with excellent views at the end. there was light snow on the trail which made the 2 steep sections a bit dangerous. Completed it with my 4 year old daughter who had a blast. I helped her down the 2 step sections, but she was able to go up them without assistance.

Great hike, the first part offers a nice set of switchbacks t get to the ridge. The view Friday from Big Schloss is awesome.

This is a great trail with some gorgeous views but also a few challenging, rocky areas -- I wouldn't recommend for a beginner. The biggest downside is there can be too much traffic at times, as it's in a heavy tourist area.

I definitely recommend this trail if you are in area. the first half mile or so is a steep incline but after that it's smooth sailing. great views of both Virginia and West Virginia. I only saw one or two other groups while on my hike. the parking lot was easy to find and there were restrooms (no sink though)

A buddy and I went hiking here the Monday before Christmas and it was an amazing experience. the weather was perfect, wasnt too cold. I came here for a solo hike in the summer and it was extremely crowded but this time we didnt see anyone else on the trail. still green and falls weren't frozen yet. Great all around hike views are gorgeous, and I recommend it to everyone up for a challenge.

Excellent hike! Plenty of parking in the lot off Chestnut Ridge Rd. , however it is not plowed in the winter (as it is just loose stone.) You would be advised to park and enter the trial off Seufert Rd.) This trial is very well marked! It’s also Great for dogs!

Hiked this trail during the summer time, went on a really nice warm day! Perfect, not to hot. Completed the trail in about 3 hours, it was a slippery trail around all the rocks because of the water. I wouldn't necessarily say it's hard. The whole trail itself is beautiful, offers nice scenery for great pictures!

this was a great all day hike with family!

Went here for the first time today beautiful place. I was the only one out there and it was awesome. It’s not a easy hike I did the whole loop in about 3 hours. I had to use this app a few times because trailers are not well marked. Definitely recommend! Wear proper gear it may look like a short hike it’s definitely a challenge. excited to return there in the warmer weather.

My family of 6 LOVED this hike so much! It was challenging and fun for all ages, but we took extra caution and went slow with our 6 year old. The kids loved playing on the rocks and we were so impressed with the waterfalls. I highly recommend this hike! Wear hiking boots for sure!

Short trail but pretty. Pretty busy area

Great moderate but 'not so long' trail with an amazing destination. Plenty of space to enjoy the great views at the top. Highly recommended!

Good trail, hiked this in the early fall to get ready for a trip to Yosemite. Waterfalls were great and was steep enough to get the heart rate up! Definitely recommended

Again a beautiful walk on the Mountain. most of the trees have lost their leaves except for the oaks. The trails were moist to wet but very manageable. The views of the Ohio River were stunning as usual. Thanks for the trail maintenance!

Awesome trail hiked it today in the snow absolutely beautiful gotta hit it when there ain’t many ppl their cause it gets full
