Crowded but still very pleasant short hike.

Nice short hike with the family. Had the place all to ourselves. Very peaceful.

We enjoyed the hike and scenery.

Very pretty!

It is amazing what nature does. I was truly suprised when I saw this natural phenomenon!

This trail was very busy, lots of leashed dogs, but totally worth it and all very courteous hikers.

The trail was rewarding especially when you get to see a beautiful waterfall. It was a lot of fun!

Nice trail. Better after a heavy rain.

Had no trouble following the trail. Quite a severe downhill though, during leaf off its easy to slip on rocks and other debris under the foliage. Waterfall is lovely, has carved itself a nice little canyon. Was beautiful in autumn but low water flow. Hike back out is almost nonstop elevation gain. I stopped one time and did fine but regardless it was a work out. Wouldn’t want to do it during the warm months.

I’ve been around a lot of the Buffalo area and this has got to be one of my favorite hikes. Not only is the waterfall spectacular but the hike is excellent and the whole area looks like a place fairies might dwell. If the camp area across from the trail is full there is a turn out off the highway to the West that’ll require a ten minute walk to the trailhead. A lot of elevation gain to the bluffs, go left to the falls. Though the hike to the right is beautiful too if you have time. Loved climbing around on the boulders. If you have a hiking partner give them some space, slips and slides will happen even in the best hiking boots and trail runners. Came in the autumn and the green valley along the creek with the autumn colors surrounding it was just spectacular. Get ready to use your hands to climb out from the grotto.

Find the trail at the back of the grounds, it’s easy to get to the lower falls. If you’re up to it, there are many other falls upstream that will require some sure footing and boulder hopping. Be careful crossing on fallen trees as they are often waterlogged and rotting. Really fun area to explore. Haw Creek is an excellent camping area (fee for camping goes up to 10$ spring 2019) and does require a water crossing in your vehicle. Don’t let it scare you, I crossed in my Toyota Yaris when the water was touching the bottom of the poles on either side of the road meant to measure flooding. Probably wouldn’t have tried it if it were much more than that, could definitely feel the car struggling against the current on the far side. Be mindful and keep an eye on the weather.

Fun trail! might be a little strenuous in some spots for beginners and if the water is up along with the rapids its a challenge to cross to the trail head safely, but a great day hike regardless! Seems like a great camping spot as well

It’s a pretty grueling hike back up. Be prepared!

Beautiful spot.
It is a bit tricky to find. But someone has spray painted a mark on the road and hung a ribbon in the tree where the trail starts. There are several trace trails in the area. My advice is this: go uphill until you get to the bluffs then turn left and keep going. Stay up fairly high near the bluff line. Take your time. The rocks are super slick. Eventually the creek and bluff will meet and there’s your waterfall.

Rough road to get there , very short hike in the rain with two falls flowing !!

Absolutely stunning , crisp morning air a perfect day for hiking Nov. 3 2018

Waterfall is dried up right now. I'm really new to hiking, but I found this trail to be a little tricky due to all the rocks. It is short which is good since the waterfall wasn't running. The drive to it would get 5 stars which kept the destination from being a complete disappointment. The highway and overlooks leading up to it was completely saturated with ladybugs? I mean Alfred Hitchcock proportions of ladybugs.

This place was awesome

great place becareful driving down recommend 4x

Very unique place!!

we went in the evening, trail had very few people on it. it was a beautiful sight. can't wait to return to stay at the lodge and adventure out on more trails.

Visited in the fall after a rain and thought the falls would be flowing a little bit better. But it was still a nice hike and cool sight to see.

Super easy & short trail. You can throw a rock (but don't cause that's not safe!) to the waterfall from where you park. The creek was low, but there was still a waterfall & the color of the water was beautiful.

After leaving Haw Creek Falls we headed north/northeast on 123 to try to find Pam's Grotto. Thanks to the tips from M. Cannon's review & a few minutes of searching, we were able to find the trailhead. The word "locate" is spray painted on the road on the same side as the trail right at the beginning. The trail is fairly steep for the first ¼ mile then it levels off as you walk alongside the base of the rock bluff. It looked like the trail split (to the right over a downed tree or up & to the left). From some of the earlier descriptions, we chose to go left. A lot of the trail looked familiar thanks to the pics, but we didn't find where the "grotto" was located. We went about ½ mile & decided to turn around, thinking it might have been the other direction, plus we were running out of time. We saw some beautiful scenery so we didn't feel like we left completely empty handed. The leaves had barely started changing colors & the creeks were pretty low, but still very lovely. I'm going to try to find a better trail map & account for a little more exploring time, & come back. Also keep in mind that there isn't cell service so plan ahead.

Simple hike to the falls. Nothing like the sound of water and the spray.

If you want to make it challenging, climb the slippery bank to get the view from on top.

Hello twins. ;)

Even after the rains, the water was just trickling but it is still worth the hike to see.

It's and okay trail. But there is one over look trail we went down. We got attacked by yellow jackets. It was a very painful hike after that. If you find a trail marked with rocks stack do not go down it.

Not much water flow this time but a fun hike with the pup.

Just a really nice rewarding hike. All around good
