Great for a good morning hike. Trails maintained nicely.

Great trail with diverse rocky terrain! We did turned into the lake loop. Enough space for heavy traffic and but you still feel secluded. Our 7 month old lab did Great on and off the leash. This lake is not swimming friendly. The trail head has a pic of what looks like large water moccasins with a sign that states “swimming in the lake is not recommended.” We did see a snake on St. Patty’s day. Thanks St. Patrick!

Fun going down, not so fun coming back up! Short round trip with some amazing scenery.

Nice trail, well maintained, well marked with white blazes and fairly gentle grades for this area. Very enjoyable day hike. Bring water and a lunch and make a great day of it!

I loved this trail. As you begin your hike don't let the dry creek bed concern you. Most of the year the creek flows underground. It remains dry until just before you reach the natural bridge. You can walk beside the creek under it. Be careful of slippery rocks. There are two small caves just above the natural bridge. They are fun to explore but are not the one with the waterfall. The trail gets steeper as you hike to Eden Falls. There is a nice overhang to explore there. The trail continues very steeply up to the cave. At one point you must crawl before it opens to a room with the waterfall. There were plenty of children and elderly people who went back successfully, but it gets so low before it opens up the you start to believe you can't go any further. Once you get to the back it is well worth the bumped knees and head. I recommend a strong flashlight the will illuminate the room well. It is always recommend to have at least three sources of light. I was in a cave once and accidentally broke two lights. I always carry plenty now. Have fun!

Very pretty

We hiked this trail the other day. It was a little over 6.5 miles roundtrip taking the Goat Trail to the Big Bluff with around a 1000 ft. descent going in and a 1000 ft. ascent coming back. The trail is an old logging trail and can be rocky at times. The views are definitely worth the hike. The goat trail is narrow, but is not dangerous if you are paying attention. Bringing a lunch and having a picnic at the Bluff is a memory that we will cherish.

We hiked this trail this past week. It has a waterfall, caves, and beautiful rock formations. The trail is not difficult and good for families. Highly recommend for those that love nature.

We hiked out to the Hawksbill Crag this past week. It was a very enjoyable hike. It was not very difficult, about 3.2 miles with about 100 ft of ascent. My 4 yr old daughter handled the hike without issue. The view from the Crag was something to behold. Highly recommend this hike.

I'm an average hiker and this trail was challenging coming out of the hollow. It took about an hour to get down to the falls, well worth the time, I must say. It was beautiful!! Short hike to the river to see it's beauty as well. Coming out was tough. Multiple stops to catch my breath, it took me about an hour and forty-five minutes to reach the top. Take plenty of water and a snack.

Great hike

such an awesome hike!

I love this trail. Hard enough to make you have to rest but not impossible i would stay away from in the hotter parts of the year if your not in really good shape. Plus jb trading post is real close to the trailhead. Really cool store with really staff.

When we arrived there were only a few cars at 8:30am, and we saw minimal people in passing on the way in. Then on the hike out, they came in by the droves! But I don’t blame them, the views of creation are beautiful from this trail.

Loved it! We went on a sprinkling and foggy morning and arrived around 9am and had the whole place to ourselves until about 10:30! It was great! Beautiful scenery and fun to explore!

Great hike even with 4 kids 10,8,4&4. Be sure to wear good shoes as the first part is steep with a lot of rocks. water in spring time made for slick rocks it where easy work for active kids

It was a scenic hike, but lots of people on this trail after 10am.

Lots of different offshoot trails which are great to switch things up whenever you go back. Very clearly marked with white diamonds- no mile markers however.

Waterfalls, beautiful rock formations and not too bad of a hike!! Perfect

Too easy for a hike. But there are hiking trails adjacent to it.

Amazing waterfall is always running and beautiful hike! Recommended!

The hike was good and not too hard! The rocks are amazing. There’s a cave system underneath the trail too that is worth spending time looking through. Beautiful!

Easy hike. The caves are super fun. Especially when the falls is actually running. Look for Eden falls too, it’s stunning!

This hike was difficult! Downhill to get there and uphill the entire way back. Make sure to go when hemmed in Hollow falls are actually running. Otherwise it won’t be a worthwhile pay off

This is one of my favorite hikes in the Buffalo. It’s view is stunning. The hike is difficult but so worth the effort! You can continue the trail down to the river but sometimes it’s closed so beware!

The trail is easy to follow and the glory hole is impressive! Lots of rocks to climb on if you continue on the trail!

The hike was easy and beautiful. I’ve been in different seasons and all are lovely.

Had a wonderful hike down to the falls and slightly more intense hike back up to the trailhead. I was worried initially as the forecast called for partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the low 40s, but there was plenty of sun and the cool temps made for a pleasant hike. Was warned here and by other reviews to be adequate prepared, such as taking plenty of water and dressing appropriately (layers)...etc. The trip down only took me about thirty minutes and I had nice lunch alongside the falls. The trip back up took about an hour and fifteen minutes, due in large part to my frequent stops. I haven’t been that out of breath in quite a while. I kept telling myself that every step was one step closer to the trailhead, which I was grateful to finally see. Only encountered five other hikers while I was there, but wasn’t expecting it to be very crowded at this time of year.
