This is a steep decent down to beautiful waterfalls. Also continued on to Boardwalk Falls. Loved the trail and Falls. Neat metal staircase you descend beside bluff. Rocky, rooty, a Little muddy. Much fun!!

Went through Stone Door into the gorge. Very rocky, but once down there, wildflowers were everywhere! Beautiful The bolder filled creek was dry, but hiked to a Ranger falls anyway. It was running great, with a small rainbow at bottom. It goes underground, that’s why you see no water in creek bed. Going on along BCG Trail, I came upon another smaller waterfall. It also runs back underground, as does Big Creek, which you will see for the remainder of the hike out of gorge. Very rocky climb out to the rim. Rim trail has a few nice overlooks. I would rate this moderate, with steep climb at end. Don’t wear flip-flops!!

beautiful trail, well maintained, Rangers were very friendly. We planned to hike the loop but we're caught up admiring the falls , looking forward to returning to finish the trail

Great place for a hammock and oh what a beautiful plunge type waterfall

Great hike with several types of viewable waterfalls and cascades.

A short trip down steps to the falls. A good warm up for the other trails.

Beautiful views, considerable elevation gains and descent. Tricky footing in some places over rocky trails especially when climbing or decending on the gulf. Take the extra .8 miles to see Ranger falls!

A short easy trek to the stone door. Beautiful views from just above the stone door. Suitable for kids, dogs and beginning hikers.

Beautiful!! The rough terrain of the hike made it exciting just to short of a hike. The rocks varying in size on the trail can make it little difficult. Waterfall was cool!!!

We came into the park from 399. The ranger at the ranger station was very polite and friendly to our kids. We hiked to the falls and back out. About 3 miles round trip. There were other people hiking some with dogs but everyone was friendly. Trail was clearly defined and had markers every 50 ft or so. We plan to go back and hike further.

This is a short hike with hills, interesting rock formation you walk through. The water falls at the top are beautiful. A great short hike.

This is an easy hike with some steps/stairs. It's a small waterfall but still pretty. It's a great addition when you hike to the Stone Door.

The views are amazing in the spring and fall! The hike is not difficult, and the paths are well-kept.

easy hike to an awesome overlook.

enjoyed this late winter hike but let the tick season begin. found two even after liberal application of Deet.

Beautiful waterfall and very nice ranger at the trailhead. Very easy hike for kids and pets!

Love this trail. It has become more popular lately and can be a bit crowded at times. Great for swimming!

Nice hike, really nice falls, but the end of the trail dumps you onto the highway, a long and very dangerous trek back to the trailhead and my car. By God's grace a very nice gentleman stopped and offered me a ride to my car.

Hiked this a few days ago it was beautiful. The waterfalls were peaceful. Rattlesnake Point was incredible, I’ll never forget that view. The beginning of the hike is a bit slow but well worth it.

Great trail, short 1/2 mile to the waterfalls area with lots of pools and rocks. Took a group of kids there and they loved it, climbing all over the rock formations and playing around the stream for several hours.

Breathtaking views and great hiking! Love this park.

We did this for a half marathon. It was tough, but fun.

Beautiful falls. There are many places to hang out when it is busy so you won't​ have to be near other hikers. There are also some good hammocking trees for those who like to do that.

It was challenging for me as I haven’t done that distance in years. The views were fantastic- great time of year (early March) for some bonus waterfalls. Great sense of accomplishment after completing the loop!

You couldn't have asked for a better day for a hike, mid 60s, sunny, and a gentle breeze. The trails were well marked. Bathrooms were clean and everything worked fine. Waterfall was beautiful.

Great trail with awesome scenes and many waterfalls.

The trail is easy, the stairs down to it can be tough when you’re coming out. A few are missing and make for a bit of a challenge.

Great family friendly and pet friendly trail. One of my favorites!

Such a beautiful trail. The waterfalls were flowing. Great place to bring the kids.
