A great short hike. The waterfall at the end is really beautiful. Gets a little hard at some places, otherwise a moderate hike. I will not suggest taking kids because there are few points with pretty steep and slippery climb.

I did both loops. Late morning/early afternoon hike, and very few people on trail. There were a few places along the trail where tree branches fell due to recent storms. Forest views with beautiful overlook of lake. Lots of elevation changes. Great workout!

Fantastic views, worth the climb. Starts off flat, becomes very rocky and steep with lots of roots. Loved it!!!

Moderate uphill hike with roots and boulders along the way, but the waterfalls are beautiful and well worth the effort!

Hiked up on 8/4 with the whole crew of kids- 9, 8, 6, and 4- its a little steep at some parts but definitely doable for kids- great falls at the top- if you go up the right side of the falls there’s a better spot 1/2 way up to rest and have lunch/snack

Did this rocky hike with the best friend and pup! Spray yourself with bug spray prior. The trail was lined with the river/creek almost the whole entire way up, and there were multiple bridges on the hike that let you take in the views. 10/10 would recommend!! It took us about 3 hours and 15 mins but we hung out at the waterfall for an hour.

Abandoned plan to hike to Table Rock because it seemed to hot for my dog to leave the cooling off creeks behind.
About a third of the way in to Carricks Creek I came around a bend and there was a small black bear right in front of me (about 20 yd), he saw me at the same time and he casually turned around and trotted back on the trail direction Pinnacle Trail .
This is a very nice loop trail if you want to stay near the water.

My first hike with two of my teenage children. Was perfect for us in terms of difficulty but disappointing that you still need to take a longer trail to get down to the falls themselves. We will make the longer hike to get there for sure.

Well marked trail. Strenuous at times - but worth the view of the falls once you arrive.

Only downfall was having to wait 30 min to even get into the park due to it being at capacity.

The parking lot is unimproved dirt and is medium sized so it fills quickly. (I was almost the first car in the lot when I got there and after hiking Hooker-Triple-High Falls the lot was packed and cars lined both sides of the road.) Hooker Falls Trail leads to a popular swimming area at the base of the falls and is only minutes from the parking lot. After an easy walk to view this small falls, double back, cross the bridge, and head uphill to the beautiful Triple Falls and further up to High Falls. At Triple Falls there is a long set of wooden steps that lead you to a flat rock landing between the 2nd and 3rd falls and is an excellent spot to view and photograph all three of the Triple Falls. (Don't miss this.) The viewing area has a single wire cable preventing visitors from straying too near the falls but kids could walk right under it. High Falls is a beautiful, long double cascade with a covered bridge at the top and can be easily seen from the viewing area along the trail.

Hooker Falls is really just a first stop before doubling back and heading up to Triple Falls and High Falls, which are really the main attractions.

Not a bad hike, 4.4 miles total, the trail is narrow in some areas and lots of tree roots. Not very small dog friendly, too many obstacles to jump over. The waterfall is big and beautiful but it is very far away from the viewing/overlook area. Lots of parking space and there was a lot of people were on the trail, high foot traffic trail.

We did the lower trails and it’s a very short very pretty, easy hike. The falls are beautiful and there are places for some nice swimming too that seem safe!

moderate trail. fun

Very rainy solo hike in the AM on 8/3, due to the rain the trail was completely empty. This isn't a great trail to do in the rain as the food path basically works as a slippery clay drainage creek. Other than getting very wet, it's an enjoyable short trail with some interesting boulders and nice waterfalls which were at peak capacity due to the current monsoon season. I know the trail is rated hard, but it's actually very easy as it's really short and the climbs are moderate. Up near the falls you do have to scrabble around a bit but it's not technically challenging. I think this would be a great hike for kids 8+ due to the length and interesting elements. I plan to do it again with the family in tow next time.

Enjoyable early AM solo hike on a foggy weekday summer morning. I started out a little after 7:00 AM and other than passing one group on my way out, I had the trail completely to myself. I had to wait for the clouds and fog to clear to see falls from observation deck but it was definitely worth it. The observation deck isn't very close to the falls (maybe 1/4 mile) but I had read this so it wasn't too disappointing but be prepared. The fog and mist made for a really interesting hike with lots of neat photo ops, just not a long, clear view of the falls. It was like hiking in the clouds.

Hiked this with my kids on a hot summer afternoon. It's an interesting hike with lots of different views. The lower section along the river is woodsy and pretty traveling along the river. Then you go uphill (and more uphill) giving you some expansive mountain views and some interesting giant rock faces. The falls are beautiful, but when we got to the top we heard music...large group of middle school age campers blaring not-so-great music and hanging out. Still worth it though. It's a heck of a lot quicker getting back to the bottom than making the climb!

problem is...... they do not open the park until 9AM!

very nice trail, however if you want a better view of the falls you need to take the lower falls trail. This trail takes you along the top of the falls with limited view of the falls themselves. lots of pretty views and easy trail grades. near the end the trail picks up a old railroad bed with railroad rail in numerous places. The trail does need maintenance with a fair amount of trees down but nothing that you can't navigate.

I did this trail today for the second time. It was the first time for my dog and a friend who came along. All three of us definitely felt the difficulty of scrambling over boulders and rock stairs, but that was part of the fun of it. Trekking poles help, I wouldn’t do it without them. It’s a beautiful trail, with a lot of variety of terrain, and will certainly give you a work out.

Awesome hike with an amazing waterfall at the end. You might have to wait an hour in front of the park because of limited parking spaces. You can spend that time talking to the park rangers about the hike options. After walking around 1 mile from the parking, you will reach an inter section from where the trail divides into two part. The right red trail is the rainbow falls trail. If you take the left blue one, you can go to jones gap falls about a mile ahead. The rainbow falls hike is moderate in the first half, then will get a little hard and the last stretch will get easy. Will not recommend small children as there are too many big rocks and then can hurt themselves. Also the steep incline in the middle can be difficult for the small children.Overall the hike is good and the waterfall at the end is refreshing!!

A great kid friendly trail with beautiful waterfalls.

I agree with others, start left and ascend with the creek on your left. Many opportunities to stick you feet in the water, if you want to. Several slippery spots, I wished I had brought my walking stick.

Great trail, but there is not a sign for the trail. you must first begin on another trail that forks in two directions, continue on the right to reach the falls.
Challenging hike with uneven terrain, but worth it in the end. It took me about 2 hours to complete with a few short breaks on the way up.
This trail ended up being a little bit over 5 miles, not 4.3 like this app says.

Loved this trail! It is fairly difficult and a steep incline 80% of the way up, but the waterfall and mountain views were truly worth it. We highly suggest doing this if you’re looking for something with some challenge. We got stuck in a thunderstorm and it was still not too bad.

Really fun trail! Almost all up hill on the way there but it’s worth it to see the gorgeous waterfall.

The hike is super steep so wear the right shoes. Gorgeous falls and completely worth the hike.

The trail starts with a little grass area and red gate. It lead you to the top of the falls which is beautiful, closer to the edge you can see both the falls. We got a little lost finding the wooden gate it’s easy to walk right past if you aren’t looking. Good for cardio. There was a lot of down trees throughout the trail but overall a good hike!
Update: when You get to the top of the falls close to the edge to the right is a trail that leads straight down to the bottom of the falls

Great trail, especially for out of shape women! Several waterfalls on the way to the lovely namesake! Lots of rain lately and all the water was rushing throughout the park. Recommend an early start to avoid the afternoon crowds on weekends.
