Easy hike. The falls are really pretty. Good for all skill levels. We combined this with a number of other trails of varying difficulty today and this leg was definitely a highlight. It can get crowded starting mid morning on the weekend.

We love this trail. My 3 and 5 year old kiddos can do it without being carried (well mostly) and every time we try a different trail on the way back we're rewarded with new (to us) amazing views. Highly recommend. Bring marshmallows and hot dogs for the campfire by the falls.

The trail can get confusing at some parts.

Wonderful trail, there are mile markers on the trail, very nice trail to enjoy.

Awesome trail with some really cool sights!

Great wooded trail. Good waterfalls and cliff overlook. Great foliage too

We hiked on Tues., Oct. 9th, 10:30a.m. Great trail, but not easy. Hiked Cedar Falls to Rose Lake, to Old Man’s Cave, then Whispering Falls and finished at the entrance to Cedar. 7 mile loop total, and the signs stating the distances between aren’t accurate. Took longer than expected, but there are a lot of roots to navigate your footing on so you don’t twist an ankle. Some muddy and washed out narrow trail spots, and some rock scrambling, but if you take your time and be careful, you’re good. We took our pup and she was able to handle it, but it may be too much for an older/arthritic dog. Beautiful and peaceful for almost the whole hike. Old Man’s Cave and Cedar Falls can be quite busy at times since they are short hikes in from the parking lots.

Beautiful trail. Very busy thanksgiving day. Did 6.5km with my family to the waterfall and around the reservoir. Pricey to park but trail is well maintained. Wish there was a per car load price

As other have mentioned, the distance is more like 12 than 10. The south loop from Old Man’s Cave to Cedar Falls was the most scenic and only one small section would I classify as “hard” — otherwise the trail is easy to moderate throughout. Most of the trail is a wide gravel trail with easy ups and downs.

beautiful w dramatic scenery

Went with my wife. It was beautiful and able to get great shots.

Nice trail with great views! Marked wonderfully.

Fun trail! Very confusing to get to the falls but hike back was super easy! You do cross the creek and can be slippery, highly recommend waterproof hiking boots with great traction.

I enjoyed this route. we ended up hiking down the stream most of the way and made this a loop by finding a rdige trail that met up with the buckeye trail to get back to blue hen. was a lovely hike.

Easy hike! Great for an afternoon away!

Love this trail, made it to the buttermilk falls off the trail.

Intense trail! Lots of hills and can be a bit muddy. Definently a workout. I started at the top of kendall hills and made my way down to the loop which is 3.15 miles. Tends to line the road a bit but the road isn't very busy. Recommend if you want a workout. Took me and my dog about an hour walking at a moderate pace. There is also a short cut to make it a bit shorter.

Nice trail good views and dog friendly. Some parts were hard to find making it take longer but all in all enjoyable

Completed this as part of the Loop Trail. Well maintained, with a nice overlook of the creek and a swinging bridge. Pioneer village is also a wonderful place to take a break and eat some food from your pack.

Short, but nice trail (approx 3 miles total). I think it is more of a moderate than hard trail. Path follows a scenic river with some great rock wall formations. Some elevation and climbing, but manageable. A couple narrow spots that would prohibit small kids. Highlights are honeycomb rock and devils backbone.

Go beyond the end of trail sign and check out buttermilk falls... The trail isn't hard but it's full of roots and several stream crossing but easy to find your way. So much fun and the dogs love it because they have to think as well. Worth the adventure
