The views were simply amazing. Waterfalls, caves, wildlife ❤️

The hike there and back is not easy but the falls!!!! What a spectacular bluff. So much larger than I’d imagined. It was like walking into a cathedral, it creates a magical space to be in. There was only a trickle, but it was still beautiful. There is poison ivy around on most of the trail, but also so many lizards and butterflies. The way back up is serious with large rock steps and large rocks to climb on the way.

Beautiful fall !!

Very easy hike and lots of cool things to see, you have to go into the cave at the very end!

My wife and I along with another couple backpacked Sneed's Creek and then back to the Compton trailhead by way of Hemmed in Hollow. Very beautiful! Even though the waterfall was merely just a sprinkling of water it was still amazing to see the size of the wall! Hiking back to the trailhead with our backpacks on was extremely difficult, but exceptionally beautiful. Definitely a hard trail on the uphill hike to the trailhead. Would love to see the waterfall during the wet season. Next time may use this trail as a starting point and not an ending point.

The trail was really challenging for us as we are beginners but was worth it.

We LOVED this trail! My 11yr old son and I did this hike on a Monday and it wasn't crowded at all. This trail has so much to explore along the way. The natural bridge, large rock shelter, waterfall (just a trickle currently), and the cave were all fun. I had read reviews previously so we came prepared to explore the cave with headlamps and flashlights. Explored far enough back that we were very cramped and then squeezed into a little tunnel where we could stand up that led back out. There was also a very large "room" just to the left when you enter the cave. As others mentioned, the rocks around and in the cave are slick so be cautious. Overall, a very cool trail and one that I would love to do again if I'm back in the area. I think we spent about an hour and a half doing the whole trail.

I love this place. Super short hike through the woods to beautiful rock formations and stunning views. Great place to explore and sit and enjoy the vistas.

Got .3 miles in and saw a huge brown animal that we couldn’t identify. Won’t be back here.

We love this trail. Even with the river beds dry later in the summer it is still a lot of fun to hike and climb the rocks. The cave was awesome! Bring a flashlight or headlamp! A great place for a family outing. Our kids love it as much as we do!

Absolutely beautiful!!

Beautiful! Unfortunately, the drought affected the water flow; but still worth the trek.

I really liked this trail. The first part is easy and then it gets more challenging. There are a lot of stairs, but the views and natural formations are worth it. Saw 3 snakes on my hike, one copperhead. The day was hot and dry so the rocks were not slippery. I did the hike in tennis shoes and was just fine.

Man, what a snoozer. The drive alone was considered the hike.

The “falls” were barely dripping water when my friend and I got there; there were spiderwebs that had to be knocked down every step; and the “waterfalls” were dinkier than any other.

Save yourself the gas and the maintenance your car may need after the drive, it’s definitely not worth it.

This is not a easy trail at all so please don't bring kids and/or pets on this trail! If you walk across the creek it can be slippery on the rocks and can easily hurt yourself as well. There is a trail along the creek but it can be dangerous as it's not wide and at times is close to a 100ft drop. When you do get to the Eye of the Needle there are ropes to climb to help climb up and do use them because if you lose your balance it's not good. Other than the dangers this is a hike that's worth it! Hiked with a friend and we enjoyed all the views that the trail offers!

Amazing hike with great stops like Cobb Cave and Eden Falls

Made this hike solo on 6/30/18. The most recent rain was 3-4 days prior so the creek bed was fairly dry and it was possible to stay on it without getting too wet. Make no mistake, this is a strenuous hike. Even in the peak of summer there are pools of water that leave the rocks slippery and there are sections that require mild acrobatics to climb. There are some beautiful views and wildlife on the creek bed path. At the end of the creek bed there is a cave which is easy enough to climb up to but I did not enter - there is a sign posted about the bats suffering from White Nose. Close to it there are two ropes that can be used to climb further on to the Eye of the Needle. I did not do so as I did not think it would be worth the risk of injury, and I would definitely recommend taking a partner if you plan on scaling the rope climbs - the nearest help could be 1.5-2 mi of rough terrain away. Took me about 4.5 hrs with multiple stops just to sit and observe the surroundings on the way. Overall, this is a great hike. The physical challenge just adds to the feeling of accomplishment at the end.

Beautiful

Use caution when exploring the cave. The rocks are very slick.

It was a Very Beautiful short walk in.. With wild raspberries growing beside the trail.... best part was the water fall .. worst part was the road in and out is Very Steep at the end ... so a 4×4 is a must!

So freaking amazing!!

3.5/5
Hiked on a rainy day with two teenagers and two adults in our group. I would rate it on the lower end of moderate. The most difficult portion comes with the cave area, where you’ll need to scramble smooth rocks if you want to see everything. A headlamp will help with the cave, too. The water level was too low to enjoy the falls, but there were some cool views, anyway.

Fun hiking trail! It's well kept, and marked good enough to reach the end and back with no issue. Waterfall is AMAZING, but more for its structure than anything else. Highly recommended if you can appreciate an aggressive hike from the Compton Trailhead. River was dry so no human traffic from river. We saw more wildlife than humans which is the kind of trail we like. Ran across 2 primitive camp sites, but no camping near the fall. A few pointers...remember, it's down and back (which is up) from the Compton Trailhead. If you can't walk or run 5k on flat ground, then this trail is not for you. Watch for rattlesnakes. We saw 3-4 ft rattler on the rock steps. If you use the post office as a landmark to find the trailhead, it's gone...looks burned down. Overall, a fantastic hiking experience!

This was fun! Minus the fact that we were the first on the trail and dealt with ALL the morning spiderwebs, it was a very unique hike. The reviews are all correct - bomb down and hike up. We actually found that it took us longer going down however bc we were being so cautious with footing.

While the waterfall was barely flowing, it was still nice to get underneath and cool off. We took lunch and ate down at the falls. Really beautiful and worth the hike down.

The hike up was a challenge but not crazy. Just about an hour of uphill hiking and lots of stairs. We took a few water breaks and heart rate breaks and had a great time!

My wife and I hiked this and it’s amazing!!! The cave at the end is pretty cool!! Beautiful hike!!

So. Many. Chiggers. And the safety cable across the top of the falls is down. It’s beautiful up there, but a fall would be lethal. The bottom of the falls is nice as well, but several unruly scouts were tossed rocks of the top creating an unsafe environment. I spoke with them, gently at the top of my lungs and from the look on their faces when we met on the trail shortly afterwards, I believe they got the message. Camp Orr is, I believe making repairs to the trail soon. Not sure why it’s called Triple Falls Trail here in the app, there were only 2 on the day I was there, one a mere trickle. Sign at the trailhead calls it Twin Falls.

A beautiful trail, even with low water levels. I went into the cave where there is a small spring fed waterfall. A headlamp is very helpful to make to crawl back to the cave. My 6’4” husband couldn’t get to the cave. The first part of the trail was easy, after that I would rate it as moderate.
