    The trail is narrow and really rocky. We went after a big rain and the trail was completely covered in water essentially the entire way. We couldn't cross at the mouth of the water fall because the water had risen so much and the current was so strong that it felt dangerous to complete the trail to even get a really great look at it. We wound up hiking a bit in the opposite direction but the view was mediocre at best and covered by a lot of trees. A lot of other hikers hiked upstream to cross but it was incredibly muddy and just covered with so much overgrowth that it was hard to navigate. I've heard that it's not great to come during the summer because there's not much water, but coming after a big rain and not being able to cross after hiking almost 2 miles on a rocky/wet trail was really disappointing. I don't think I'd go out of my way to do this one again.

    I took the longer route which required walking a mile down a closed road to the path which was another 1.5 miles roughly, was able to get on the bridge from the South side. If you search on google you can find videos with instructions on how to do this. there was a lot of overgrown bushes, etc. but worth it for the views if you aren't scared of heights.

    Nice views, rocky trail. Good option for beginners. Not my favorite hike in the Hudson valley

    Beautiful hike. The waterfalls are stunning and the viewpoint about half way in is amazing. Bring hiking shoes. My family members hiked in chacos and because the trail is rocky their ankles hurt by the end. Stay on the trail and don't try and hike up the actual waterfalls. The rocks are slippery with algae and it's not safe. Also, it's more like 4 miles not 7.4. Otherwise enjoy!

    Hiked three miles in and three miles out. Great way to experience the rain forest and good for people who want a little more than the hall of moss trail offers. Easy to follow

    Felt more like a walking trail and less like a hike. Mostly flat and very quick walk to get a taste of the Hoh Rain Forest. The hike gets better and more scenic the deeper you get into it.

    Very well marked trail. I didn't find this one to be as difficult as others have said. Make sure to wear shoes with good ankle support, I felt mine almost rolling at multiple points when climbing over rocks which is a large part of the trail. When you get to the top you have to walk down a ways to see the views. Great mountain views. 10/10 would do again.

    The hike to the unmaintained trail is very difficult being that you are hiking up hill for miles. Multiple switchbacks. There are some nice view points close to the top where you can see lake crescent and take a quick break. The unmaintained trail is super sketchy and I would not do without shoes that have great traction. I didn't see the sign and realized where I was when I hit the section with the ropes. Did the first rope and then turned around. I know many people do this part of the trail but it's not actually maintained by the nps and the ropes are put there by other hikers. One wrong move and I'll leave that to your imagination. The views along the way were good enough for me to pass and not feel like I was missing too much.
