My 11-year old son and I did this trip this weekend. Started on the south loop, and then hooked into north loop. Camped at the triple fork camp. Awesome views, rock formations, and trail in good shape. Only wish the section that is part of NCST was better marked. Otherwise, I felt the blazes were fine.

Not very marked trail. Not enough information included for hike. Beautiful falls. Not a very informative hiking post

Went there, and there was no sign the trail existed. The people who lived there said it closed 7+ years ago and not maintained anymore

nice hike, on the easy end of the moderate scale. only downside was the sparse hard to find trail heads but we only lost the trail twice and made it out fine. I would definitely go back for a round 2!

wet and muddy boots and a walking stick are good ideas. couple creek crossings. stay at a no fee campsite down by Johnny cake, and the reservoir.

Start on the eastern limb of the loop saving the overlook for the way back. This has the added benefit of letting you walk downhill on the steepest part of the route

Nice long trip takes you through a diverse area. One big stream that you have to cross. Great for a small 2 day trip

We did 10 miles with our two dogs on a rainy spring day and it was beautiful. We had our backpacking gear and the waterfront campsite was gorgeous but we decided to finish the loop and head out instead. We'll be back ;)

This is a great hike. We did the loop in mid march and left the overlook for the end of our hike. It was well worth the effort. The bridge on the most northern portion of this trail was washed away. There are a few parts of the trail that aren't marked very well.

I've done both the Morrison and Rimrock as single day hikes. I enjoy both in the early spring. There is a small waterfall on the Morrison Trail (41.845510, -78.894960)
The trail is clearly marked and well worn. The scenery for both trails is great. I highly recommend the Morrison trail to someone just getting started in hiking/backpacking.
