Wow! The waterfall was beautiful. There were a lot of people. The hike back out was pretty steep, but well work the trip.

very pretty. slippery rocks of course so make sure your shoes have tread on them before going. the trail winds from the land into the water to the rocks to get to the waterfall.

My girls (ages 3 and 6) and I just got home from this hike! Definitely a must... if you want to go behind the waterfall, follow the main trail. when you hit an open area, with a trail to the left or right, GO LEFT. You will eventually climb down to a sign the days "Lower piney falls." TAKE THE TRAIL BEHIND THE SIGN!

Very happy with this outing. The girls loved swimming. Water was cold and so refreshing. lots of bluegill and trout. We will be going again.

Excellent raw trail. Lots of interest. My wife and I took took this on in late afternoon. Lots of rain over the days before had Rock Creek flowing fast and high, turning the rock hopping jaunts into thigh-deep wading. Nevermind that. The reward at the in end was well worth it. The reward at the out end a downhill grade. Note: Lots of slick mud on the trail.
Also this is not a hard hike, but it did not seem particularly kid-friendly to us.

gorgeous view and fun water hole to play in

Great place!! Short hike down stream then follow the river bed to the falls. Ton of people.

It has a whimsical winding staircase going down to the falls. Great waterfalls. The base can be seen from the top and bottom. At the top, a boulder can be climbed to see another mini waterfall. i want to go back. it was fun.

Love the beautiful fall and hike!!

Lack of trail markings can make it a little confusing. The waterfalls are great and it’s a very easy little loop.

Nice little camp ground/ hiking and picnicking area.

The trail is well marked, the park itself is well kept. My dog was terrified of the staircase going down so I carried him. Haha. But once we were at the bottom we enjoyed swimming and the peaceful atmosphere.

Had a great time this past Sunday with the family. Kinda short but fun.

Great scenery. Lots of rocks, some loose. They aren’t kidding when they say wear water hiking shoes. You have to go through water to get to the falls. The falls are beautiful! And worth the hike. But be careful. Expect to get wet. The swimming hole is perfect. Water temp very refreshing. Went on. Friday afternoon. Very very crowded but didn’t really slow us down.

Nice trail. Great scenery along the water the whole way. But very short and no access to the water. Wow went on a Friday early afternoon so not too crowded.

Beautiful scenery! Lots of people.

Great hike to many people.

good hike for a hot day very crowded watch the slick rocks saw a few people go down in the creek and one at the falls and one being taken out on a stretcher only 4 * because so crowded

kinda hiking but more like climbing down to the falls. it was fun. beautiful. hard climb down. turquoise water.

Cummins Falls is a beautiful place. Unfortunately way too crowded now that it is a state park. People do not wear proper footwear, carry too much stuff and leave trash and things behind.Just did it a couple of weeks ago with two of my kids, but the trail is tough going back up, so don't wear yourself out at the Falls. Be respectful, be careful on the water crossing, carry out all of your stuff and Enjoy!

Pictures don’t do it justice. The waterfall is gorgeous and my twelve yr old loved wading underneath of it. Make sure to bring water shoes or flip flops for little ones to change into at the bottom. Saw lots of families with toddlers. Keep in mind the path was slippery at some points and a little tricky.

I did this trail on July 7th. the falls, all three, were the best part of this moderate trail. Greeters Falls was getting busy when I was there but the water was so refreshing. I blazed my own trail for the third falls by hiking up the rocky river bed past the fork.
it was more strenuous and had a better view of the gorge.
The trail went out to the rim and had some panoramic views. If you stay on it, it will hook up with a couple other Savage Gulf trails.
Though this wasn't a particularly hard trail, it just kept giving more spectacular features. I made it into a 5.5 miles and 1150 feet elevation hike. Now that's a good workout.

Beautiful

Loved it! I feel like Lower Greeter is the most photographed, but Upper Greeter was really beautiful too, as well as Boardtree Falls. Definitely wear actual shoes on the hike and wear your swimsuit!

My husband and I hiked this trail over the weekend in a rain storm and it was awesome! It was a little busy when we got there around 3:30 or 4, but as soon as the rain started, people got out of there and we had the whole place to ourselves. Beautiful waterfall and fun little hike!
