We loved the trail and the falls. The rock stairs are a little crazy and wonky but getting to the landing is worth it. You are right next to the falls and if it’s been raining they can be roaring! Going back up is a little work. The rock stairs require a bit of mobility and strength but the main trail is easy.

Super short and easy walk through the woods for an awesome view under the falls. I went mid-week while it was raining after the tropical storm came through and the falls were beautiful. Only saw 2 other people mid-week. Highly recommend after a good rain if you’re close by or for a slight detour. The path only had a minor amount of flooding that was avoidable.

Nice views. Very easy trail.

Nice trail. start at picnic area and go for it! The train is a bit rocky in some areas, but good trail. About a 7-10 degree incline at begin, but easy trail. Remember people, you're hiking a mountain, grab a walking stick, pit on appropriate shoes and go have some fun.

Great hike! Absolutely gorgeous waterfall. A little difficult with wet leaves but overall a great hike!

Simply beautiful and a very easy hike!

Pretty easy hike, some steep stairs at the bottom but a close angle to see the falls.

This hike was pretty and the waterfall was beautiful. There are several places where you can easily access the water and my toddler was able to play. The footing is slick and muddy and the descent is steep. Not the best hike for small children or anyone with knee troubles.

Easy Trail except for the final 60 or so stone steps down to the waterfall. But it is worth it as they take you to a viewing area that is up close to the falls. It has been very wet this summer and the falls were spectacular. I have seen pictures of the falls in a drier season and they can be a mere trickle. The loop takes you back up the stream that feeds the falls and is very nice.

Easy beautiful trail

Super easy and stunning views

Should not be advertised as having a waterfall. You can only get to the waterfall by hiking an additional 3.6 miles to Douglas Falls. Overall disappointing hike. If you go after a rain the clouds will hide any sort of view from the trail.

Very easy trail to see a beautiful waterfall. Dog friendly on leash.

awesome!!I would do it again!!

Such a wonderful hike with our kids! We loved getting our feet in the water and hiking down many little waterfalls along the way. A beautiful trail. We had two toddler and a 1st grader with us. Great for us all. Definitely harder once you pass the main waterfall though — that was better for me and the 1st grader. We will be back again, Lord willing!

This hike was one of our favorites! It was perfect for our family of five - including 2 toddlers. Great views at the top and a shady climb through the trees. Great hike!

Not sure I'd actually list the trail as "wheelchair accessible," due to a very steep climb with a number of switchbacks the last quarter mile or so, BUT a beautiful trail and falls.

The drive there was beautiful! I will say you go up a steep curvy road to get to it. Not a lot of parking but we did not have an issue. The hike was amazing! it wasn't necessarily easy, but it always wasnt difficult. I'm not the most in shape person and coming back from the falls you have some incline to go up. Word of advice, take a picture of the map in the parking lot. The trail is nicely marked if you know what color of trail to do. I'll definitly be coming back to this one! You do red, blue, then orange I do believe. The yellow trail is super small but pretty.

Quiet east trail several finger trails to allow dog to wet feet, drink. Only wildlife were a couple of black racer snakes. Cool day “80” could see difficult hike in mid summer heat and humidity

Beautiful and easy enough even for moderately out of shape folks like me.

loved it. high water so fantastic falls. hike is kid friendly.

I really enjoyed this trail! A nice, shaded walk down to the falls. I would rate it as moderate though. Even though it's short, the hike out is entirely uphill with some steep sections. The falls are gorgeous! I do recommend watching your step while playing around the rocks at the falls. Snakes enjoy sunning there. We stumbled upon two while there. We also saw lots of interesting mushrooms along the trail.

We stayed in a cabin right by this trail. It was a great, quick morning hike to get us going. It is well-maintained and steep in some places. It was fun for the kids (12&10 yrs) and dog. The waterfall was pretty and there were areas to play in the fresh mountain water . It is definitely short and I would only do it again if I was staying in the area.

Amazing views! A religious experience and I’m an atheist.

Well maintained park with a beautiful waterfall. Has benches in a few areas to stop and admire the beautiful scenery. My grandchildren loved climbing and playing on the rocks. Fun trail for the family!
