Very pretty waterfalls. Highly recommend it. I would say this trail is moderate and strenuous going back up.

Quick, short, and fantastic views.

Awesome trail, there are some slick rocks so be careful

Fantastic hike with great falls. Trail is hard to find (not well marked). Entrance is off the picnic area.

Great views & trails! Only setback was we didn’t realize Black Rock was inside the grandfather mountain park & had to pay $20 each to hike. Other than that, we had a great time!

cool to do before you actually hike

Flat. It’s a perfect place for strollers. There’s a cool water pool at one side of the lake. There’s several species of water fowl here.

excellent adventure. beautiful water falls. we hiked down from the Hebron Falls sign to the bottom of the falls and climbed the boulders back up to the top. some of the rock climbing can be slippery and there are several dangerous spots if caution isn't used. but totally manageable and remarkably beautiful.

Easy hike. Did it with fresh fallen snow. Challenging because of it but good. Beautiful views at the end. Great beginners.

Went with my husband and our two doggos. It was tough in some areas with the dogs on a leash. I wouldn’t say this is an easy trail. Especially when you get to the end it’s pretty rocky and steep. I wore tennis shoes and I definitely should have worn real hiking boots with real tread. It was a really fun hike though & I would do it again in a heartbeat.

FANTASTIC! It's not clearly marked but once you pass by the viaduct (heading south on BRP) you will almost miss the parking to the left. GET OUT and take to 5-10 minute walk and WOW... the view is fantastic.
We went on a super windy day and nearly blew off (HA).
Highly recommend but WATCH YOUR CHILDREN!

Very nice moderate hike. The falls are beautiful. Wear correct footwear, areas are slippery and trail can be very muddy after rain. Great outing to pack a lunch and carry it on your back.

Did this in winter... wear waterproof shoes! Worth the very short hike!

Such a beautiful view for such an easy, relaxing hike. Even in the winter the view was absolutely stunning!

Fun rock climbing experience for sure. Wouldn’t recommend taking dogs, they may slip and fall easily. Make sure you wear shoes with good grip. Would be really fun to do when it’s warm outside.

My husband and I got up super early and hiked in the semi dark so that we could be at the top of Beacon Heights at sunrise. Totally worth it!

I love this trail.

Beautiful view of folded mountains , and rugged terrain. Short hike. Bring water for dogs.

Great little hike with a very rewarding view at the top!

Favorite trail in Boone area!

Beautiful- uphill one way, but slight- bridge over beautiful creek, goes to a huge rock you can climb to the top to for beautiful views. Probably about an hour 10 mins there and back walking casually.

Very muddy right now, wear shoes you don’t mind getting dirty and have nonslip soles. Very pretty, even though most colorful leaves have fallen.

Great short hike with incredible views.

Nice easy trail.

Trails are clearly marked. There are different trails you can take off of this one if you want to lengthen your hike. Stream crossings, so plenty of water for dogs. Nice walk through the woods. Rocks and a little mud, but doable for a 56 year old with knee problems!

Loved the waterfalls.

Hidden treasure! Great place to watch the sunrise.

great hike with nice views throughout, able to take both my dogs on it without difficulty . moderate traffic .

not much of a hike but, was a nice walk. even though this 2.2 mile walk was around a lake the views of the lake during the walk were limited...just good not great.
