Easy beautiful trail

Awesome short hike, beautiful drive in. 0.3 miles round trip!

Very foggy day, but absolutely gorgeous! Great uphill walk. Dog friendly was nice as we gave 2 hounds. There was traffic on the trail, but not too bad.

easy short hike with a real pow at ebd nice swimming area just dont fet to close to falls area swimming a lot of people have drowned here swimming and jumping. they have put steps at the trail going down the hill now so it is real easy now. Nice spots for kids to play in water also with sand there. even saw a beaver swimming there one time

have been here a lot of times over the years. Like to go at different ti.es of the year. Really pretry in the winter with ice on and around. The hike itself is real easy except for the far apart steps make it a little harder on people with short legs. Cold water but real nice to swim in when it is hot out

amazing hike,very steep incline for a short distance hike but you are alongside the waterfall for the majority of the time and there is a couple rest spots if needed, went right after a rain storm and the falls were flowing hard, nice view if you go alittle further past the fall

The trail was very steep, but very short. There are lots of roots and rocks, so this may not be great if you don’t have good balance. The water was icy, but very pretty. Great views and opportunities to climb around on the rocks.

This was a fun day hike! It was a little too crowded for my liking but overall an awesome experience. It is quite a climb up all of the stairs but worth the views and it is nice and easy on the way down.


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

It’s a nice uphill hike that follows the creek with nice lookouts onto the waterfall. The first part of the hike has nicely built stairs. It does get crowded but there’s a nice vista at the end onto the valley.

Great trail. It was really crowded. It has paid parking. I would've given it 5 stars without the huge crowds.

Excellent rock stacking opportunities, truly a hidden gem.

Extremely short walk to the falls, but very steep stairs going down. Plenty of great fall photo opportunities.

The trail was short and easy, the waterfall itself was beautiful, but the area was very crowded.

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!

Although extremely beautiful, this trail is quite popular. Lightly trafficked is not accurate.

as a beginner hiker I found this trail pretty challenging. I was able to do it, but the trail is pretty steep so be prepared, particularly for the way back as that is the up hill portion of the trek.

Great hike! There is a $3 fee per vehicle and it was totally worth more than that! I'd definitely say it's a moderate level hike. there are also plenty of beautiful spots with benches to stop and catch your breath or give the kiddos a rest.

Probably one of my favorite hikes I’ve gone on recently, the beginning is a little boring but trust me it’s worth it later on

Not really a hike but awesome jumping off the water fall and rlly fun swimming, also kinda sucked there was so many ppl there but overall still a good time

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.

really nice little falls, use the entrance along the fence, much shorter walk!

Highlight was to see a timber rattler between switchbacks - great climbs and views, nice to see a lot of upgrades being done to walkways and viewing decks.

It's a great easy hike to go on with kids or pets. At the end there's a nice view.

A pleasent trek down to some beautiful falls. The hike back up can be challenging.

It is a very easy walk, however there are a lot of roots all through the trail. The steps leading down to the Blue Hole are steep. The water was very cold, but gorgeous. Would highly recommend.

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

I love this hike. The falls are gorgeous and the view at the top is so worth it.

Beautiful falls and nice Ling bike from the forest road at the end of North Creek campground.
