Awesome short rewarding hike. Did this in January and it can get a bit slick and icy but nothing too dangerous with the wooded terrain. Amazing views at the top, 360 in some places. I'd definitely do this again!

Short, but Amazing. Best spot for sunrise and sunset. Use the app “Waze” and it’ll take you right to the trailhead

Easy hike with beautiful views! I Recommend hiking this early in the morning to enjoy the sunrise without crowds:)

Great hike. You will cross streams to wear waterproof shoes

Cool trail easy to navigate and has signs all over that teach about the flora and geology. Be careful when walking on the rocks at the top as they might be slippery

Was a little hard at first due to the previous day frozen rain but totally worth the "dangers". Breathtaking view at the top. Make sure to check out the tallest point for another amazing view
No crows at all in Jan. Accessible even when the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed

Brp still closed, but the walk there wasn't so bad from the barricaded gate. Nothing crazy hard, if I can do it, anyone can do it! My first ever view of a waterfall, very pretty for a first timer

Very fun! To complete the loop you have to cross the river twice! It would be better on a warm day, we went in the freezing cold, but it made for some great memories

Great views at the summit
Overnight camping you can experience sunset And sunrises

Went on a hike with a friend in first week of January and had a great time! We did not hike the whole thing due to slower pace and the time we had. We made it to the waterfall then turned back, so didn’t make it to Walker’s Knob or the summit. We left a little before 1:30pm and got back maybe around 5:47pm.
It was not as cold as you would expect, but definitely muddy from all the rain these past days. We were wearing the right shoes, but in some places it would be easy to get your feet wet. There are 3 beautiful water crossings in order to get to the other side of parts of the trail. Definitely a moderate hike because of creek crossings and incline in the first part of the trail, but it evens out in the second half. Before reaching the waterfall there is a beautiful lookout called Walden’s Rock.
The waterfall was cute and maybe medium sized. Not huge though.
We hiked a total of maybe 6.5-7 miles. Out and back.
We felt safe and passed a solo female hiker with her dog, a couple, a solo male hiker, and a group of college aged students hiking.
Overall very nice experience!

This should be on your top 10 list!

Great for people with a desire for a big pay. You will earn the view toward the top but it’s worth it. Can be muddy and slippery so wear proper shoes and take it slow.

Every time we go to this trail, it’s a new experience and always wonderful. Summer time, it’s beautiful but today absolutely blew my mind. My husky, my 5 year old son, my fiancée and I all highly suggest this trail in any season. It’s a little muddy sometimes but you don’t go hiking when you wanna stay clean!

Very nice fall. Came here on the first of January.

This trail has become my favorite hike in all of Asheville. The first half is along a strong creek, adding a lovely sound of running water as background noise. I highly recommend making it to the Walker's Knob Shelter and taking the lookout trail from there...it was incredible!
This trail was a bit strenuous but well worth the effort. I'll be back for this trail, and to explore the trails leading off it.

Easy trail. Crossing the river is a wet one for sure but nothing dangerous. The end result is one worth while. Beautiful falls with the ability to get up close and personal. Would be a great trip for the summer months. Highly suggest for families looking for an adventurous hike. Being extra shoes and socks. THIS HIKE IS DOABLE FOR FAMILIES AND CHILDREN. BRADLEY FALLS IS NOT.

Short and sweet. Great for kids, grandparents, and the whole family! Heavy traffic every time I've gone, but worth it as a family trip.

Trail is sometimes hard to keep track of. Start markers are faded so make sure you look left and up for the trail ,not right along the water.

Posted distances vary. From the Montreat trailhead to Walkers Knob we recorded 5.25 miles on my son's Fitbit. Total round trip 10.5 miles. The description , though, was accurate. Initial ascend is moderate to strenuous. Then, is traverses upward at a moderate but enjoyable climb. Our hike was on the aggressive side, 4.5 hours up and back. View from Walker's Knob were enjoyable.

Some snow and mud--beautiful.

Beautiful place camped overnight got a snow flurry or two. November 11 when we were there

Pretty easy hike. Slippery when wet and it was extremely windy and foggy, so my view was nothing. I’m sure it’s a five star view, but I didn’t get to witness it.

Easy. Beautiful in Winter.

Beautiful waterfalls and scenery along hike. Ok view at top.

This was a quick trail. Definitely easy to moderate. Some areas may be slippery when wet. Also, we took two wrong turns. There were no trail markers.

Easy trail nice falls.

It’s really a hidden treasure.

An amazing trail but I’d definitely rate this on the “harder side of moderate” - the view at the end is ABSOLUTELY worth it.

Beautiful waterfall! I was anticipating more of a hike into the waterfall, but this hike is excellent for a short trip with kids. The hike in is a all 4 wheel drive road, until you get to the base of river. The hike into the falls is a easy hike until you get to the base of the falls. This waterfall was beautiful! Wish it was summer so I could have taken a deep into the pool area at the base!
