If you're not used to hiking or have achy knees there may be some challenging sections but nothing that cause true concern. We did the Cat Gap Loop along with the John Rock trail. This combo offers amazing views (you can see Looking Glass and surrounding horizon) but also has fun crossings and a couple of smaller waterfalls. We took lunch and ate at the lookout. The trout hatchery is also fun for the kiddos. My nine year old completed this hike.

I must have missed the waterfall climbing up to John Rock, but this is a fun, easy trail. I would imagine it gets pretty busy in the summer though, so plan accordingly. Hiking up to John rock is easy, coming down was a little tough on the knees. John rock opens up to a great view of Looking Glass Rock.

Great trail with cool bridges and river obstacles. Well maintained besides some expected mud. We hiked it backwards and it was a beast to get up to John's rock. More "fit" hikers won't have a problem. Based on my experience I don't think anyone would really not be able to complete it. My GF and I had an excellent hike. Do John's rock. So awesome.

Outstanding waterfall! Pretty strenuous but worth it!

Family loves this one. Most of the ascent is in the first half making the return very mellow. Trail quiet even though close to town. Verdant green in spring and early summer. Best views in winter.

Love this trail! Very fairy like and lush.

Love this spot. Great for camping or day trips.

Definitely a muddy hike! And at some points you wonder if it was worth it.... let me tell you... IT WAS WORTH IT! The view was crazy cool. My pup absolutely loved it!! A lot of streams throughout the hike, I did not see the waterfall, but I am pretty sure I totally missed it and cut my hike short. The trail itself was full of roots and rocks so be careful! I can't wait to do it again.
