One of the most rewarding hikes I’ve ever been on. Went at the end of July.

Easy hike along an amazing creek with some great swimming holes.

Great water fall, little bit rough getting just because of the tree roots. Very beautiful!!

Definitely moderate coming out and easy going in. Rocky, take appropriate footwear. Gorgeous falls. Dangerous, please don’t swim here - do a little research before hiking this trail!

Beautiful trail, but pretty easy.

spectacular waterfall. worth the climb up. pretty strenuous last 2 miles

Great views! Some serious elevation to start out! A great hike for a fall day!

good trail for leisurely hike. great for the family. variety of wildlife.

Well defined trail, wet at times but not really muddy. Very heavy on traffic. A lot of people like to hang out at the falls, but it was still enjoyable on a Thursday afternoon during the shoulder season.

Hardest hike done so far, but well worth it!

Enjoyed the loop trail. Plenty to see and explore. Love the educational boards. Will be doing this again with the family.

Pretty rough especially the first 4 miles! Don’t get the full experience since it was cloudy. The hike was actually 13.3 miles from parking lot out and back .

Great challenging trail

Very easy hike to the overlook. The trail down to the base of the Falls was closed due to flood unfortunately, but other than that is was an awesome little hike. I hiked this with my 2yr old niece and 58yr old heavy set mother. She was able to due this hike fairly easily. Only part she had to go slow was the staircase which is about 40 stairs. Without going down to the base the whole loop is less than a mile.

Beautiful! I am a beginning again hiker. It has been decades since I hiked. This was the longest trail I’ve done so far. I enjoyed the hike so much. It was tough but I survived. It had the water flowing parallel with the trail. It had some steep hills both ways and of course the hardest was the uphill after the waterfall visit. The waterfall was beautiful. There were a lot of families so it’s great family time. Bring band-aids because someone is sure to scrape something playing on the boulders.

Beautiful trail. Definitely a favorite. We always do the Day loop option which clocks per my watch at 3.8 miles. It is super dog friendly. There are some rocky spots that give the trail so much beauty. Only down fall is during the summer it does trace a popular party cove so you are going to get some noise and nonsense from that. Other then that we love it.

This is my home trail. My dog and me hike it atleast twice a month. It never disappoints us. I recommend it to anyone that wants a good hike but not to tasking. my favorite trip was probably when it was snowing.
There are some stairs that are unevenly spaced and deep. my friend has a bad knee (old sports injury) the stairs were a little difficult for her so you want to plan ahead for them. Super dog friendly with plenty of swimming opportunities for our furry friends.

Absolutely loves hiking this. Was a challenge but once we made it to the top, it was well worth it.
The view is absolutely breath taking.

The hike was great. Definitely come early to get parking since it’s limited. I would also rate it a moderate hike. Good hike for families to bring kids. The falls was beautiful. Saw two salamanders when I got it the falls.

We had a great hike and gave our adult children all they wanted in a day hike. Beautiful scenery and amazing trails. Well worth the climb.

I Definitely felt accomplished after this. We even saw a black bear!

Difficult on the way up but the virws are beautiful. Much easier on the way down. Worth the climb!

Absolutely spectacular. Definitely worth the climb. The drive up to trail head was a little adventure as the road has many holes and is not well kept.

This was a great hike! The little river trail was easy peasy - flat gravel trail along the river. Just beautiful! Cucumber gap trail I found to be a bit challenging at times (for me) due to many tree roots, uphills, and a couple stream crossings. A hiking stick would have been beneficial on the cucumber gap trail, but I did it without just fine. Just watch your step! No bear sittings but saw evidence of them on the trail. Really nice hike overall.

Easy walk through mostly dry river bed when we were there (Aug 28th) I really enjoyed the views of smooth side walls and searching for the pictographs. We found them in two completely different areas. Met a local and explored the opposite direction of the waterfalls after we were done there. Lots of rocks, boulders and cairns along the way until we saw a cave up high to our left. It looks like a big sand castle! Not a challenging hike but fun to explore.

Great views!

I can't give this anything better than "average" until they reopen the full trail. Pretty tough hike for anyone not in shape, straight up most of the way with a few views. End section to the Chimney Tops is closed (gated and spiked). Park Service built a little overlook pad but doesn't compare at all to the chimney tops. Park Service needs to make reopening this a priority!

Good hike, moderate hills, descents, and flat sections. Falls and pool below falls is great reward. Decent crowds but not annoyingly so.

So many steps but a very nice view once you hit the top. Unfortunately the second half is still closed but you still get a great view of the mountains and the chimney top.
