My favorite is early spring when falls are mostly still frozen to late spring with lots of wildflowers. muddy in spring past the falls but great for kids.

Very nice trail, some tough inclined to the upper trail. Well maintained and easy to find. You have access to wander around the falls but they are smaller than the falls at Presque Isle. Still an enjoyable, fun hike.

Some mud but avoidable during late summer. Very pretty near the falls.

Manitou Falls was beautiful, however we could not walk the trail according to park staff due to washouts from high water. Only reason I have 3 stars is we went down to the lower falls and were able to hike around a bit. With a 4, 6, 8 year old we couldn’t stray from the path too much but it wasn’t even a mile worth of walking. Still a pretty area with the falls.

My family and I hiked on the Thimbleberry Trail on a Monday afternoon. My 3 kids are ages 4, 6 and 8. They loved the different bridges and they felt as if they were on a mission to find the different signs. We stopped and threw rocks in old quarry and at the river bottom to play in the sand a bit since water was low. We stopped at the falls earlier which was a bit busier with people but shared this trail with no one. I’d say we were on it for more than an hour by ourselves with our stops. Great fun and we’ll try to return. PS, there is a rope tied to a tree in the old quarry, I bet it’s a blast but we didn’t have swimming suits along.

Nice views and easy trails

Good hike in well maintained trails. Mostly shaded. Can get buggy if trails are wet. The waterfall is the main attraction and can get very busy. Shallow enough so kids can play in the stream. I liked the hiking sections in the south part of the park. It’s actually across the road from the visitors center. I would come back in the spring for the wildflowers.

The map above is a picture of the trail to Morgan Falls. The trail to St. Peter's dome is much longer, almost 2 miles out, 4 round trip.

The trail is closed but the road is open. We did the hike and it was muddy in a few places. This is the buggiest trail ever. It was miserable and we couldn't even stop to take pictures without being swarmed, and that was with bug spray.

Great, well-marked trail. The waterfall is easy to access and great for wading and playing. Easy hiking, even for younger kids. There are a lot of dogs on the trail. We found a leech after playing in the water.

Decent trails, well-marked and maintained. Lots to choose from- you can really hike as little or as much as you want. Good for running. The main attraction seems to be the waterfall, the rest of the trails are standard forest hikes it seems.

First off, $13 parking fee. The park was under-construction so there were areas of the trail that were inaccessible. The landscape was gorgeous. Didn’t make it to the falls but it seemed busy coming from that direction.

Lovely well maintained trail to the magical Lost Creek Falls. Pretty easy overall, a bit steep for the last 1/4 miles to/from the falls. I live nearby and hike it probably 4/5 times per month.

Nice easy hike. Our small dog made the whole trip from the campground up to the 5th falls with no problem. Some steep spots that were muddy and slick. The trail by the upper falls gets very close to the edge in some areas, so it can get a little scary if you're not into heights. Definitely watch your kids if you go to the upper falls! Overall a great hike!

Great hike. Beautiful scenery and trail is very well maintained.

Felt like more of a walk than a hike. Either super sunny or all shade and bugs. Some steep hills which is a good challenge but since it’s all graded felt more like a walk than a hike. The falls were great to see though but PACKED with people swimming and lounging. I’d suggest a weekday.

Good trail - steps in parts so don’t bring a stroller (or anything else you wouldn’t want to carry at times)

Great easy hike with multiple water falls, swimming holes, and paths through the woods.

Overall, we had a good time. The falls where great. There’s an additional trail off the main path which leads to the observation tower. Once at the top, we couldn’t see past the tree tops next to the tower. We will definitely be back.

There are a few steep hills but nothing crazy. Mostly out in the open, not a lot of shade and no water sources. Also the drawdown of the lake doesn’t leave you with great water views. But still a good hike.

Trail in good shape! River down so can soak feet. Few bugs.

Very disheartening to arrive here and discover that dogs are not allowed on this trail, though your description specifically states otherwise. Lesson learned; go to the source. The only trail in the park that is dog friendly is the Red Granite Falls Trail and that was spectacular and very unpopulated, so the day was not a total loss.

If you go early in the morning on a weekday, it's very empty and peaceful. The later you go in the day, the more heavy traffic you will see. The waterfall is worth the walk. Beware of snakes, especially if you have little ones walking with you.

LOVE the waterfall and the scenic view points are great, especially the one at the top of the staircase. Easily a favorite and have visited many times.

Beautiful waterfall and nice trail.
