Very short hike to multiple waterfalls! Beautiful place. Go off the trail and follow the creek to find hidden falls! Great swimming hole!

this is a sorry excuse for a hike. you can hear the falls from the parking lot and you just walk down some stairs. I read the other reviews stating the same thing, but I didn't expect it to be that close. the falls are really pretty and I love that there were teirs. it's a good place to go if you want to swim and only have a short walk.

Beautiful falls. Not well marked. Easy hike and well worth the stairs!!

Nice hike on old railbed. This trail offers views of the gorge, railway tunnels, wildflowers, the sound of gushing Doe River along the way. Well kept by owners.

Probably one of the best views you will ever see with such easy access and limited amount of people. Forms aren't a big deal. The trail just shows a different view of the world.

Quick little hike! Beautiful waterfall in April. Our young kids (3,6,7) did well with this.

Not really a hike. Just a few steps from the pull off to the falls. Beautiful. Plan on returning in summer with Chaco’s and swimming trunks.

Easy hike down to Blue hole and grotto falls. Beautiful scenery . You can walk around to the left of blue hole and up through some brush to access a cliff at the top you can jump off of into it. Be careful. It can be slippery

Easy short hike to some amazing waterfalls. Usually lots of people here. Hard to get good pictures unless you go early or late on week day.

Good trail if you have little ones. Water is cold but refreshing.

Really enjoyed hiking with friends here. We were blown away with the views: Gorge, river, railroad, all under snow was truly awesome. We will be back soon. Ang out.

Small but beautiful falls with swimming hole. Saw it when frozen and plan to go back in the spring. Not much of a hike but coming back up the stairs from the bottom of the falls is brutal if you’re not in shape.

Perfect hiking weather. Great company. Trail had snowy patches but overall clear.

Peaceful area

Nice trail. Be sure to wear good shoes since the railroad gravel can be a little rough on your feet. There are some amazing views of the river below, but not too many easy paths to get to it.

Absolutely breathtaking!

it was fun just watching adults and kiddos jumping in the cold water. a very cool place to hang out.

Great trail--not too much elevation change but very rocky. Lots of stream crossings. Well marked and walked along the river most of the way.

Beautiful little spot. More of a walk then a hike. Nice place to swim and enjoy the day.

Beautiful! Great swimming hike!

This was a cool little hike to do while we were in the area. Sheer dropoffs, so be especially careful with kids.

Great trail. Like others have said, very rocky. We hiked to the falls but then decided to go a bit further and scale the waterfalls. There are three levels to the falls and we made it to the very top! It's dangerous though as you'll be going off an unmarked trail.

Very rocky trail. The waterfalls were very nice and the temperature was wonderful walking next to the water. Definitely got my feet wet and fell in on the way back.
