This was a great trail! Wasn't too long of a hike...and the Falls were amazing!

This trail was relatively easy. Other trails we have been on became part of the terrain, whereas this was a “trail” the whole way. Rainbow Falls was beautiful- wished we had seen a rainbow! Worth the view for the distance of the hike. We enjoyed it!

Early morning is best for numbers of people. Always love this place and the hike to get there! Minimal ticks for us this trip. My 2 huskies love the trail!

Really pretty hike. Saw a black bear cub on the hike less than 15 feet off the trail.

Beautiful trail It is all uphill, so not really for those who have difficulty walking. We loved it and are looking forward to hiking it again.

Absolutely beautiful!

Great trail. Astonishing views, and fascinating flora on the other side.

It’s very slick coming back on part of the paved trail. I prefer gravel or dirt trails but paved it better for kids. Both of my kids fell. I fell with my 3 year old on my shoulders due to slick pavement. But worth the hike there and back. Does get crowded in the early afternoon. Morning is less crowded.

Great hike but definitely more on the difficult side going up. It had recently rained so there were parts that were very muddy. We passed a lot of people that had slipped and almost slipped ourselves a few times. But if you’re up for the challenge, it’s a beautiful hike, shaded in most parts with pretty water scenery.

Beautiful waterfall and overlook. Steep but doable. great spot for swimming.

Great, but be warned that there are some rocky bits so wear appropriate footwear. If you just want to see Sunset Rock and don’t want to hike there is a parking area off West Brow road with a short easy walk.

Easy trail. Nice and quiet early in the morning. No issues for our crew of 9 with 5 kids (ages 6 to 14). Personally not a fan of paved hikes, but easy for all levels. Nice waterfall.

Great waterfall hike with small children!

Diverse well marked and worn Plateau trail.

Way too crowded!

Very good trail for the family. We have three 7 year olds and they did fantastic. At the waterfalls you can go down to the bottom. They discourage it but if you use common sense it makes the trail that much better! We loved it! On the way out we saw a black bear that made the trail that much better.

Nice trail - easy to follow. Not a lot of people since it’s a moderate trail and out to the falls is all up hill. The top of the trail is really nice with the water fall to see and rocks to sit on to enjoy the scenery. Definitely recommend good shoes and water for the hike. About 3 hours for approx 6 miles.

I have done this hike like 8 times. Great falls but nearly always super crowded and people are generally rude and throwing their trash wherever

This hike was amazing and definitely one of our favorites! I went last week with a 10 yr old and a 3.5 yr old. Both girls enjoyed it and were able to complete the out and back hike. We enjoyed the swimming area near the falls and were able to climb up some of the falls without any problems. There was one section of the trail down to the river that was steep and slippery, we just took it slowly. Once near the falls, there are a ton of life vests available for use. Highly recommended for weak swimmers and little ones.

Short hike, moderate climb, beautiful waterfall.

Lovely hike in the beautiful lush forest, with a waterfall at the end. My first "long" hike. Being from Florida I practiced for a long time on the uphill treadmill, and it worked, because it wasn't too hard or too steep for me, and I enjoyed it so much I have sought out vacations with beautiful day hikes ever since.

This is a beautiful area. You can take a short, easy walk to the top of the falls, or you can make the relatively moderate hike down to the base of the falls and beyond. Very pretty and relaxing, with a swimming hole at the base of the falls.

Amazing!

Absolutely gorgeous hike. My wife and I enjoyed being by the river, and the tighter spaces of rugged terrain this trail offered. Without a doubt worth the hike to see the cascade. A favorite for sure!! This was about 10 miles stepping distance due to the terrain, and was hard but doable.

Love this park! So many great hikes and beautiful views! There are tons of other activities for everyone in the family to enjoy like a ropes course, golf, horseback riding, tennis courts, and kayaking.
