Beautiful trail. Not crowded for Tuesday hike. We took our dogs and it seems like everyone else we saw on the trail did the same.

Great hike. improvements are continuing to be made.

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

This was a great hike.
mostly on a wide ATV access route so walking was easy
Suggest you go counter clockwise as the Lighthouse stop will be near the end of the trail. The trail continues along the shore so you can do a loop.

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.

This is a short hike with a great, refreshing reward at the end. Beautiful! We will hike this one again.

Nice hike with nice falls. We added busby falls to the loop just to play in the water more

Fantastic hike in Lake Michigan. Very friendly and the lighthouse tour was well worth the hike to the other side of the island. This is certainly a gem at the tip of Wisconsin. Put on your hiking shoes, grab a swim suit, and enjoy. Not one mosquito. Many biting flies near the hospitality area, but not at my site. What a nice way to get away. No cell service. So nice!!!! Bring your teenagers and drive them nuts. They may actually break down and talk to you without a text. ;-)
Take the time to go into the hospitality center and look at the boat house underneath. Amazing architecture and the history the island is amazing! I followed the paths all the way around the island. I also check out every site that isn’t occupied just to make notes on where I would stay on future trips. All the “lettered” sites are very secluded and quiet.
Numbered sites are pretty close together, but if you want to meet fellow hikers and camp near the beach, they are best for you.

This trail is absolutely amazing and beautiful. The overlook is stunning and it makes the climb totally worth it. However, make sure to be extremely careful and to look out for potentially dangerous animals. My friends and I camped overnight in a campsite near the main overlook and we spotted a mountain lion that hissed and growled at us on the way back to the campsite from the overlook. The next morning we saw 2 Black bear cubs and their mom as well as a few snakes.

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.

We came with our four kids, ages 2, 4, 6, and 8. We decided to go counterclockwise which I think was the right move. We already got the payoff of seeing the falls before we had to climb up the stairs, so we had no choice. :) We had the youngest boy in an Ergo, but the older girls all handled the trail—and the stairs—just fine. The trail was clearly-marked, but it did help to have downloaded the map from AllTrails just to be sure we were on the right path.

The falls were incredible, some of the best we’ve seen around. We really loved that the pools are wade-able, and you don’t have to decide you want to go swimming in the cold to get close. Combine that with a really wide, really beautiful cascading waterfall, this one is near the top of our list.

Great trails and mostly shaded which is great in TN heat! Plan ahead - no bathrooms.

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.

Needed a break from really frigid weather these past three weeks. What a delightful, well-marked/maintained trail with natural arches to see. Today, 25 Jan. 2018, was clear blue @ low 50's. Highly recommend this trail and other area trails to refresh your soul.

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

Beautiful falls and fairly easy and maintained trails.

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.

Diverse trail and the twin arches are stunning!

great elevation. it is winding. it is narrow so can't walk side by side with a friend. saw some frogs. leads to a circle of wooden benches.

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!
