Be aware that while the trail itself is moderate I believe the distance listed is way off. The map and description indicated a round trip distance of 4.8 miles but to get to the actual falls at the cliff it was 4.8 miles one way.

Great views during our December hike, while headed up and down, 360 degrees at the top. My only criticism is too few markings in several locations where trail forks, making AllTrails GPS location checks necessary. Be certain to check your location at the top Bald area, and walk the entire loop indicated on the AllTrails App, including towards the rock-faced area on the Northern side...great views at the edge!

Very clean trail

Great trail, waterfalls and flowing river were awesome

It was raining when i went. looked like there would have been a great view on a sunny day. I'll definitely go back though when i can see that overlook.

extremely short nicely paved pathway from the parking lot to the top BUT the path goes straight up very challenging will stop a couple times to catch your breath but worth every View at the top

great views on an awesome trail. Near the top are a row of privies provided by Army.

Well maintained trail and highly trafficked. Would be nice for a trail run if not so crowded.

I usually rate trails very high, but I hated this trail. So many fast sharp turns in the beginning, similar to switchbacks, hard to run. Better than running on a treadmill, but I won't be coming back here.

Very good hike, and absolutely stunning views. It is well worth making it to the top.

A must if you in the area. Multiple waterfalls and campsites along the route. Well maintained

Nice hike with quite a bit of incline. I struggled to get to the top, definitely had to stop and rest for a couple of minutes about 5 times! Views from the top are stunning!

Excellent for kids. Nice trail for moderately fit people . Trail is easy just a bit of an incline. I did it with a 5 year old and he handled it well.quick movie at top of mountain

Looking up from the parking lot was intimidating, my wife and I joked about doing the winery instead. We are 60+ hikers and don’t give up easily, so up we went, and made it to the top. Apple watch says 5.06 miles, 1542 feet elevation, 3 hours and 19 seconds, including lunch and photo stops. This was a cool November hike, so no wildflowers or leaf colors, but the views were spectacular, well worth the effort.

excellent short hike!

This is our new favorite waterfall trail. Several beautiful falls before the big one. Can’t believe how this little creek makes such huge noisy falls. Trail is easy, did some rock hopping to get up to see the falls come through the cliff. Didn’t climb to the top, that looked very steep and treacherous. Started around 10, lots of parking spaces. Finished around 1. Parking was scarce.

This is a great.view with a great hike!

Had a great day. Beautiful scenery. Will do again in the near future.

Beautiful scenery! Trail was fine first part.. last mile was difficult, BUT worth it when you reached the top. Loved it.

Great little hike with quite a bit of inclined. I was up top on the tower for the better part of an hour waiting for the fog /clouds to clear. I finally got to see a few peaks of mountain tops coming through the clouds and it was amazing

I loved the views on this trail. It was a bit rooty but not bad. I am new to hiking and did the trail with ease. To get the cave with waterfall tho is a boulder climb which may be where you turn around! The bathrooms tho were horrid I held it the entire time because of how bad they were.

This is a great trail to hike for beautiful long range views! There are many rock outcroppings along the way. It was rocky and rooty in some places. My girls are experienced hikers, but we were unprepared for this trail. (We didn’t bring enough snacks to keep them happy and energized). LOL! But the views made it all worth wild!

My family and I had a great time on this beautiful hike. We love hiking near water and this hike follows the creek more than 90% of the time. My daughters are 6 and 7 and pretty experienced hikers already. This was an easy hike for them and our 2 dog (Vizsla & Yorkie).

Beautiful hike! Did this with my sons last weekend. It was cloud and overcast, so we stayed cool. The falls are a great payoff. I don't recommend climbing to the top of the cliff, it has gotten very dangerous since my last visit a few years ago.

Fun hike! Steady incline.

Views that’ll make you smack yo mama. Tough hike but totally worth the sweat. Get a pic on the rock up top. You’ll know the one.

One of my favorite hikes now. The entire hike you’re hiking along a beautiful creek and the incline is easy/moderate until you get to the cliff-which is a very steep and slightly treacherous climb rather than hike but the views to see the waterfall and top of cliff are more than worth it
