Great hike! It’s a long haul to the falls, but completely worth it!!

Hiked in late October. The mixed foliage was so cool. Yellows and greens everywhere. Pretty easy; you can hear traffic from 14 for the first .5-1 mile, it it does eventually dissipate into silence. Not crowded; only saw a handful of hikers. The waterfall was actually more impressive than we expected on an easy hike. Doesn’t feel super remote, but it does feel gorgeous and serene. Cool rock features at the falls. Would certainly do again, especially with novice hikers.

A hidden gem. Multiple shots of the peaks as you hike. the panorama is the cake!

Road to the trailhead is very well maintained for a forest service road. There are a few pot holes but they’re more like speed bumps and easily avoided, my Honda Civic had no issues getting there if you’re worried. Trail to the base of the falls is easy and short, if you want more of a challenge hiking to the upper trail #152 has some steeper sections. Couldn’t really see the falls from the upper trail but found some cool camp spots with a view for backpacking.

Gorgeous, unbelievable views! Ridiculously windy at points, thought we might blow off the side. Also be warned the last few miles of the forest road are pretty rough and require an agile 4 wheel drive vehicle (ideally with high clearance).

did the trail yesterday, just beautiful. Fine signage, great open trail, just a great little hike, and dont miss the waterfall

Very nice hike. Not very steep, except for the short trail that takes you up to the Falls Creek Trail #152. I went up to the base of the falls and then to the viewpoint above the falls and then completed the loop and my Alltrails app recorded 6.5 miles.

Relatively easy trail. Follows creek most of the way to the falls. Awesome little peekaboo of the falls from the trail before you get to the lower viewpoint.

Very nice/easy flat hike. Beautiful waterfall. Very tall. One of the prettiest.

I headed into the woods on Friday afternoon and noticed the silver blazes marking the trail. The trail is marked well enough for most of the way with only a couple tricky parts. Some of the turns can easily be skipped with the blazes (some having arrows pointing to turn) being a little on the smaller side. The trail itself is fairly easy with nothing too difficult. Elevation changes are frequent and but again, nothing too steep or difficult.

I went counterclockwise and skipped the Morrison Trail; only doing the Rimrock Trail Loop. I spread the trip over 3 days and 2 nights taking my leisurely time as I hiked. It was cold and wet the weekend I went where it rained all night both nights and the 2nd night it got down into the upper 20's. First night, I only hiked about 3 miles and set up camp just off the trail where an established fire ring sat. The 2nd night I stayed at the Morrison Campground. There are many campsites available there at the campground all complete with fire rings and picnic tables. Sunday morning, I woke up and finished the trail.

I would definitely recommend this trail to any hiker with any amount of experience or lack there of. It's a nice little trail with plenty of campsites to offer and lots of water and streams. There wasn't anything crazy as far as views either, but it was still very beautiful just being out in the woods.

quick and easy hike, keep right at the fork to go up to the waterfall. some rocky spots but nothing challenging.

60 mile an hour winds at the ridge made it pretty difficult to go the entire distance but it was absolutely gorgeous with all the fall colors.

A nice easy walk with a spectacular view of Taughannock Falls. Lots of people coming & going but never too crowded to get nice photos. The gorge is as spectacular as the actual falls.

Don't believe the negative reviews, there are plenty of signs and I believe only two pot holes that I can remember. The road is well maintained and you can easily get to the trail head in a car (I did) and there is a large parking lot with a bathroom. It was absolutely beautiful, the fall foliage is incredible right now. I did however almost hit a heard of Elk so be watchful on the main highway!

was good trail from red bridge to chapple cove along lake but no camping back tracked to other side of lake along highway 31 found campsite an was just getting set up for sleep when we encountered someone or something throwing rocks in water an making weird noises so we packed out in the dark which ruined our morning hike out trails were not maintained like was told an saw evidence of fresh cut trees to make a bed with not impressed at all with ratings that you people gave you must be blind ..

Easy hike to a beautiful waterfall. you can get close enough to feel the most off the falls.

This trail was really nice! It was very well marked and easy to follow! We forgot to bring bug spray so the bugs were eating us alive. For more adventurous hikers - when you get to the stairs that lead to the overlook, go right to find rock climbing trails and small ravines to get to the top. It was a lot more fun to rock climb to the top than simply walk to stairs!

Nice hike, the waterfall at the end is pretty and it wasn't very crowded even with the beautiful weather today. We parked in the lot before the Bridge of the Gods, you'll need a NW Forest Pass to park here.

Was a nice hike on the PCT and easy to go further on the trail if you choose. The waterfall was nice and not too many people. Good to stop and eat lunch.

Beautiful falls from the base and very nice hike, but the signage is terrible, as is the road to get to the parking lot. We took a turn that we thought would loop around to parking, as described, and ended up turning an easy 6 mile hike into a 12 mile excursion filled with frustration.

Great and Easy hike! Beautiful waterfall :)

Easy out and back to a beautiful waterfall.

A nice, fairly undemanding hike but not a lot of visual bang.

Been up there twice in the last month. Did the short trail the first time, the long trail the second time.

Worth every step, and the rough forest service road to the trail head.

Very nice loop trail, all though the Falls Creek Trail #152 is more of a Mt. Bike trail and the rest of the loop is more for hiking. Falls Creek Falls Water Fall is very refreshing and great for pictures and videos. Cool camp grounds and swimming area up at the top.

Easy trail out and back 3/4 of a mile. Glorious waterfall at the end. (I should add the waterfall is only glorious if there’s been considerable rain lately)We did walk in the water for a bit but it is super slippery so we got out and back on the trail. We also spent sometime at the beach across the street which was crowded but the water was so refreshing that we didn’t care.

Nice trail and the overlook is worth it once you reach the top. The last portion takes you up a rock stairway that cuts through a large section of rock. Was a good hike to do with the family.

Meh. The trail is short and bumpy with a waterfall that is decent, but not great relative to the surrounding area.

it was a very nice and beautiful hike. There are lots of potholes but not as bad as some roads we've seen in Washington. The signs were minimal but that's why we have the All trails app and map. The trail was mostly soft and shady. The lower view of the falls was an oh my God moment. the upper falls and views looking down were nice of the valley but you can't see much of the lower falls. A short hike further is the small falls by a camp site.

incredible place.
