Hiked this trail in mid November when it was about 40 degrees out. Definitely had trouble finding the entrance to the trail, and there appears to be a smaller trail that has been created right at the parking area that leads off in the complete wrong direction. The actual trail is just a jeep trail that is not marked. Definitely recommend downloading a track ahead of time. Luckily we had LTE on the wrong trail and I was able to download a recording and find the correct trail. Someone had marked the trail down to the cave with an orange tag on a tree so we were able to find our way down. The cave/structure itself is pretty neat and the hike back up was pretty grueling, especially after doing two other trails earlier in the day. Overall a great short hike, just be prepared for going back up.

Moderate trail with an awesome view at the end

The hike in and out isn’t too spectacular, going in you have a nice vista of the surrounding mountains but they quickly disappear. Personally I found this trail more annoying to descend, it’s very rocky and rutted up by horses (which, I’m not sure this is the best trail for horses...) if it’s wet at all it becomes very marshy and muddy. The payoff is more than worth it and I definitely plan to hike this trail again and spend time in the backcountry. There is much to see and enjoy. The hike out was not bad and the ascent is spread out. I only remember one difficult hill that’s about 2/3 of the way back, the rest is easily manageable. Also I only logged 640ft of elevation gain and I was back and forth on some of the trail multiple times so I think the 1000 some feet of elevation gain isn’t quite right. It’s definitely not that severe.

Mediocre trail but view of Whittaker Point is amazing and worth it. Drive to trail head is quite difficult on steep rocky roads. Once you get to parking the trail is the one on left side of road as you are driving up mountain. Lots of people hiking this trail for such a remote area.

I’ve been around a lot of the Buffalo area and this has got to be one of my favorite hikes. Not only is the waterfall spectacular but the hike is excellent and the whole area looks like a place fairies might dwell. If the camp area across from the trail is full there is a turn out off the highway to the West that’ll require a ten minute walk to the trailhead. A lot of elevation gain to the bluffs, go left to the falls. Though the hike to the right is beautiful too if you have time. Loved climbing around on the boulders. If you have a hiking partner give them some space, slips and slides will happen even in the best hiking boots and trail runners. Came in the autumn and the green valley along the creek with the autumn colors surrounding it was just spectacular. Get ready to use your hands to climb out from the grotto.

Easy hike, obvious trail even covered with leaves. I’m out of shape, so if you think you are, too, don’t be afraid of this hike. The view is worth it! Just amazing. (Start early, preferably a week day, if you want some peace and quiet.)

Easy hike even if very poorly marked (marking the trail would at least give novice hikers an opportunity to learn). Lots of good fall foliage and trickles of water over the bluffs. A few small trails beginning at the very back of the campground road; those were better time investment (I’m fickle; I like the payoff). Day was cool and damp with thick fog impeding any view. But felt amazing at the top!

Fun trail! might be a little strenuous in some spots for beginners and if the water is up along with the rapids its a challenge to cross to the trail head safely, but a great day hike regardless! Seems like a great camping spot as well

Fall leaves were remarkable! So beautiful!

Beautiful site to see. We would love to see it again.

Beautiful spot.
It is a bit tricky to find. But someone has spray painted a mark on the road and hung a ribbon in the tree where the trail starts. There are several trace trails in the area. My advice is this: go uphill until you get to the bluffs then turn left and keep going. Stay up fairly high near the bluff line. Take your time. The rocks are super slick. Eventually the creek and bluff will meet and there’s your waterfall.

Great trail to check out the fall colors if you can time it right. Easy trail. There is an incline at the end when you come back but nothing I thought was too bad. The trail is very popular and was very busy and parking was a mess. For how popular this trail is it would be nice to see them put in a parking lot someday. Great rock formations and the views from the bluffs are amazing. It’s a cant miss hike but don’t expect peace and quiet on the weekends.

Absolutely Beautiful! Some of the prettiest country I have ever seen.

Gorgeous views form the crag and trail leading up to it. Beautiful trees and creek crossings. Very busy during the Fall months and parking is difficult along the gravel road.

Rough road to get there , very short hike in the rain with two falls flowing !!

Long bumpy road to trailhead like others have said. In was easier than out as out felt mostly uphill and I'm old and out of shape, lol! Views were amazing! It was crowded on a October Monday including a hammock couple that had been there all day. :( we walked a bit further and found a nice spot for lunch and when we were done the place was empty. So if it's super crowded the day you come I recommend waiting around a little while and you will probably get it to yourself. I'd say this is a must do hike if your in the area.

Nice hike with many feature points. The caves were as beautiful as the waterfalls.

Beautiful and amazing views! A bit crowded and commercial feeling but deff going to give it another try.

It was a difficult trail for me to complete, but I loved it.

Moderate hike but amazing view at the point. Rough road going in though

Make sure to see these falls at a peak water level! It is incredible fun to swim and layout on the cleared rocks.
