This use to be one of my favorite waterfalls but they had it roped off at the bottom of the stairs so you couldn’t walk out and chill on the rocks anymore.

Nice views of beautiful falls. More of a walk than a hike. Kind of touristy.

Yes, as others have noted this is not exactly what I would call hiking. Path walking is more like it. All of the falls were beautiful, we walked from hooker falls parking area to triple falls to high falls to bridal falls and lastly to hooker falls before calling it a day, took us about 3.5 hours or so. We brought a picnic which we enjoyed at high falls. Great day of multiple waterfalls, just not much of a hike.

beautiful falls , not really a hike though...just walking on service roads...we hiked from hooker falls parking area past high falls over the covered bridge and down conservatory road. only disappointment was the service roads and lack of any views on it.

Awesome hike! Beautiful and easy! My husband, 3 year old son, and I completed this trail. Well worth the drive.

A lot of fun

One of the best swimming holes around!

Pretty hike with very big waterfall. Lots of dogs & kids having fun too.

Super easy and fairly short trail to the falls! There’s a few rocks that are perfect for a lunch while listening to the falls. As others have said - not the most grand waterfalls in the park, but it is much more private. We were there on a Saturday and only had 1 other group of people at the Falls with us. There’s also some spots for swimming, not just at the falls but also along the trail in the river depending on how you get back to the parking lot!

There was a lot of straight uphill, and half of the trail was a lot wider than I like, but the falls were spectacular!

More of a path than a true trail. Very wide path, gravel most of the way. Varying levels of intensity but mostly pretty easy. Lists of opportunities to get in the water. Great views, took my wife and I almost three hours but we hiked it all ..... covered bridge, triple falls and all. Would do it again.

Easy trail for that is good for bringing young children. awesome falls.

This is a fun and easy hike. We saw a number of multi-generational families enjoying the trail today. Definitely suggest adding the Hooker Falls hike to this loop. Hooker Falls has the best place to get in and enjoy a short but cold swim. Wear closed-toed shoes fir the hike though. The gravel is killer.

This trail was great! A little longer than expected. Also Holly Trail was closed last week so we weren’t able to get back to our car that way. We had to walk by the highway to get to the parking lot. But other than that, it was a great workout. Now that we’re more familiar with the way, we will definitely be going back!

Loved it was amazing waterfalls saw them 7-1-18 they had been receiving lots of rain so they were rushing with water beautiful

Cool waterfalls, too much traffic for my liking.

Easy fun walk from spacious parking lot. Slight downhill to falls. Nice little swimming spot at base of falls, and another little swimming hole just below that basin.

Have to do a bit of climbing over roots and rocks at the very end to get to falls, and walk back is slightly uphill. We had no problem, but if you aren't accustomed to physical activity, this would be a moderately challenging hike.

Also, the map in the app is awesome. Several other trails and bike paths crosscross, but the app made it easy.

Spent the day hanging out by the falls today. Great little short walk. Bring a blanket, snacks and a good book.

Short walk to hooker falls. An amazing spot to just chill. A lot of people had floats and coolers with them.

We live in the area and like to take company here. The trails are wide, heavily trafficked and easy. You don’t have to put in too much work for beautiful views of the falls. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

Beautiful area! It’s a great place to spend a day and wade in the water. Can be crowded but if it’s a rainy day there’s hardly anyone there. The waterfalls are gorgeous after a good hard rain.

This is not the best waterfall in DuPont but maybe the most private. The trails are nice and shady most of the way. Absolutely check it out after you've been to Bridal, High, Triple, and Hooker Falls! There's no place in DuPont That isn't worth checking out.

Easy hike to a pretty water fall. Good access to other hikes as well.

Beautiful waterfalls. Very popular hike

The falls are very pretty, but I was very disappointed in the “hike” to get to the falls. It’s all on gravel service roads. Also, there really aren’t any views of mountains which I prefer. This is rated as an easy hike, but there was a decent elevation change several times. Maybe it was just the summer heat and humidity, but I was pretty miserable most of the hike. We parked at the Fawn Lake access and took the Fawn Lake Rd trail up to the Airstrip Trail then crossed over to the Conservatory Rd trail and onto the Bridal Veil Falls trail...maybe there was an easier way?? BUT—the falls are very pretty!!
PS: if you want to get wet and swim and stay for a while, there’s a nice mountain lake not far into the hike. If we’d been prepared, we would’ve stayed there and swam. Didn’t see any place to pay a fee so I assume it’s free. People brought in tents and coolers and chairs. We’ll definitely go back just for that!

Easy hike, even for our kids and little dog. Well marked and maintained trail!

Falls were nice, but I would hardly describe these as trails. More like a path. Lots of people.

Fantastic, great hike with incredible views.

Very easy hike, would not describe as moderate. The Falls are Great. A lot of people got in the water at the High Falls to get a better view and cool down! Highly trafficked trail! Great trail for animals!
