Great running,

Very nice hike but waterfall dry also hike to yahoo falls earlier the same day but no water flowing.

The majority of the trail is wide and flat. No matter which side of loop you start the end is a hard up hill climb. The trail runs along a creek with several easy crossings. Youngest in our group is 4 yo and he managed well.

There are quite a few trails here. Took a 3 year old and carried a 3 month old. It was great but the 3 year old ended up being carried quite a bit too.

If you're looking for great views or unique geological formations then this trail isn't for you, but if you love other aspects of walking in the forest, then you may be pleasantly surprised like I was. I'm really into mycology, so finding loads of chanterelle mushrooms on the way to the top of the knob automatically made this hike enjoyable for me.

Easy, well maintained blacktop trail leads to the gorgeous falls.

The US Forest Service calls this the Buffalo Canyon Trail (#508). It is a fantastic trail but a bit harder for an old, out of shape guy like me!

This was an amazing hike. The views from the top were incredible. I would like to know how this trail was rated as moderate though....it was a difficult hike for me and I've been on numerous moderate trails. Most people that we ran into on this trail, knew nothing about it looping back to Osborne Bend Trail Parking lot, so we ended up making this an out and back hike. We only got lost once and that's because we missed the left turn, but we didn't go too far before figuring out we had made a mistake.

Nice trail. Well maintained for the most part, just one tree across the trail we had to negotiate. Took my boys down for an overnighter, we decided to head back out before dark. Did catch a few small fish and left the next camper a nice pile of firewood.
