Gorgeous short hike, def go to both upper and lower falls- worth it!

Nice, short trail with great waterfalls at the end!! Be sure to go to both the upper and lower twin falls. The lower one is the taller one that’s straight down, the upper falls turn a few times. Once you get to the bridge to see the upper falls, keep going up a bit to see the top part of them. Very beautiful.

This is a treasure place close to city where provides numerous benefits in order to escape from the busy noise city. You can find a hidden magic place if you want to explore with curiosity. It’s likely good for any season and you can do a good exercise in the fresh air instead of getting gym membership. Save money but boosting our spirit and body! Enjoyable several natural things throughout the pathway.

Great short hike, disappointing waterfall but still nice to see

My dog and I went up this trail: and it does go up. Lol

Great hike and wasn't too busy for a Sunday. Definitely watch out for horse poop on the trail.

I really enjoyed doing this trail definitely empty your bladders before heading out and there is a portable potty out the as well as facilities to use the restroom. so much beauty surrounding you

Great hike, nice creek/waterfall and awesome views at the top!

great trail for running, decent foraging. unfortunately came back to my window smashed in after hike. Contrary to signage, there are no cameras over looking the parking lot. Still a beautiful trail though, just be conscientious.

My tracker indicated about 3.5 miles to the top. Heavily trafficked - likely due to holiday weekend - but no bikers or horses to work around. Unfortunate that a good portion has been clear cut by loggers, but definitely worth the view at the top. Great to also see the change in flora and fauna as you ascend.

Hiked on 8/4/2018

This is a great place for beginners to hike rain or shine. It was a bit of a challenge for my two gamer children 11/16 yo. The falls are beautiful year round and are best viewed in the spring or after a good rain fall.

Arrive early this is a popular location. The lot was full by the time I made it back to the trailhead.

A discover pass will take care of your parking fee or pay by cc at the trailhead.

I’d agree that it’s a low-moderate hike if there were such a thing. Completely worth the drive out. Beautiful area. Do not skip the short trip down the stairs to the lower falls. Absolutely beautiful.

Great little hike. However, we didn't use the trail and took an adventure up river. Very scenic. Only downside is the area was a bit sketchy and there was some litter in and around the creek

This is a great hike! Clear trail, lovely forest. I actually wouldn't call it an easy hike. Low moderate? There's a bit of up and down, so if easy for you means flat, this is not that. There is short portion at the beginning that is pretty rolling and easy, leading to the falls view that could be good for families, but beyond that it gets more moderate and the heart rate bumps a little. We did ~8 miles of hard hiking the day before and felt it in the calves. *thumbs up*

Been there on 2018/07/08 (Sunday). Very good and beautiful river side hike. Good views. It is not easy hike. It is little challenging and calorie burning. Path is neat and well marked. I would go there again.

Great, little challenge. The parking is limited. Although you can park along side the road out of the main parking lot. There are bathrooms. The trail is a bit narrow in some parts. Great views all the way. I was surprised by the amount of people and dogs. Fun overall and spots to swim.

I would not label this trail “easy”. It’s all relative. I had two children 3 and 4. Moderate is more appropriate. Great views, naturesque.

Hiked on 8/24. Water volume was low and definitely want to go back when sunny and warm, earlier in Summer. Good exercise, not too easy. Start at park, not on logging road.

Was a Decent hike the falls were running slow so not as great as I expected. Still a good time though

Great hike and beautiful views!

I live close to this state park and love hiking it any chance I get. Lots of different paths to take to mix it up!

We hike this trail about once a week, very peaceful. Not too much elevation change and the trails are well maintained except for horse and dog poop about every 5 feet.

LOVED IT!!! super nice views and beautiful beautiful waterfall so peaceful and so relaxing!!! I would totally recommend this. I didn’t think it was “moderate” more on the easier side,however there were a few spots that get your heart pumping. Can’t wait to go back!

Had an amazing time doing this trail. It did take me a long time to find the start line but well worth it. It did rain on our parade but it felt amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Great hiking/running trail! Not much traffic, only ran into 3 people, so nice to be able to run. It was an hour roundtrip. A little rocky!

Great blackberry patch in front of the trail head! A nice easy afternoon hike with nice water views. Sad to see how people have destroyed the area by making their own trails :(
