Loved the hike. I carried my 5 yo twins and it was a little challenging. We decided to stay to the right of the trail and take the long way around. Took the other route on the way back. I was a little nervous walking up the side of the hill because the trail was so close to the edge. Just made sure I had a firm grip on the twins until we made it up. It’s a simple walk for the most part. The water fall was breathtaking. We will definitely hike this trail again.

It was a good hike. The scenery is beautiful. Downside is that the trail markers are not the greatest. It’s easy in a few spots to get lost. Our group ended up going an extra mile out of the way before we got back on the trail. Overall though was worth it.

Always one of my favorite places I can capture some great images up there.

Nice little hike. Very up and down, but not hard at all until you can hear the water where it drops down to the waterfall. So the hike out can be tough if you aren’t fit.

Always a favorite peaceful place and a good swimming hole for the kids in the summer.

Falls are right off road. I imagine this place is crowded in the summer. Volunteer group was there cleaning up trash...it's too easy to get to honestly.

beautiful place. the falls are great!

I hiked this with my two boys (6 and 9) and we had a blast. The hike down to the falls was easy, back up it's steap but they ran up it most of the way. The falls were beautiful and we had a lot of fun hiking off trail around the area, mostly following the stream and skipping rocks.

Short and easy to follow. Not very scenic until you reach the falls and then it’s absolutely magnificent! After the spectacle keep hiking creek side for a bit to reach the lower falls.

Had a great hike met lots of nice people

Beautiful . We took my daughter with her month old daughter and our 3 year old and had no problems.

Easy walk in and out. Well worth the short trek.

Wonderful short and easy trail that takes you a large stairstrp cascade. Follow the trail further downstream and climb down for a different view and a hidden secret falls across the river.

Beautiful summertime swimming hole.

Busy, family fun day hike.

Beautiful falls. The trail is only a couple hundred feet, but it's very steep with no stairs. Kids really enjoyed climbing over the rocks at the bottom.

Length of the entire trail (there and back) is about three miles.

Nice trail that winds through a few different types of forest. Some parts have been heavily hit by pine beetles.

The trail widens out under a grove of hemlock. Very pretty with ample shade. The creek is clear with a sandy bottom. Good for wading.

The path leading down to the falls is hidden. Head to the right along the top of the cliff. It's just below the edge. Very narrow.

Once you're down there, you can walk under the falls themselves. My four girls really got a kick out of this one. :)

Although it’s beautiful, if you will go down creek just a bit you will find lower caney creek falls. Very beautiful.

Pretty boring trail but the waterfall at the end makes the hike worth it.

Great for kids and adults short trail

it was so amazing it was so fun first and second time too I loved it so much

Relatively flat, wide Trail 4x4 accessible, leads to the Sipsey River. some camping areas near the river. large pine and hardwood forest, recent controlled burn 4 to 5 feet under brush. I tried to give it three stars but five stars locked in.

beautiful short trail. Scenic walk down to cane Creek, beautiful double waterfall. approximate 20 foot waterfall at time with my visit

Not a hike but beautiful and definitely worth seeing. Went in October and we didn't see anyone.
