Four stars only because this trail should definitely be rated as hard: there’s at least 0.5mi of straight rock climbing and the remainder of the trail has miles of very steep inclines/declines to navigate. As another user mentioned, hiking experience is definitely needed for this trail and make sure to bring plenty of water with you, especially on these hot summer days.

We also saw a black bear run across the trail 30 yards ahead of us about 0.5mi after the rock climbing portion, so be alert!

most beautiful waterfalls

This loop was a bit more than Moderate and some of the trails were a bit overgrown but we were still able to follow them with the help of the gps of this app

Once you’re past chimney rock, views sorta dry up. Nice hike though.

A good incline

We attempted the loop but went from the other side this time. Rocky Terrain and lots of up hill on this side. The first time we went on the lower side which was beautiful and filled with little streams and creeks.
You should definitely be an experienced hiker for this one. We didn't want to walk the beautiful boulder field because we had out dog. So we tried to make a new trail up and over with no success and had to turn around and find our path back. It was a lot of climbing up and down the mountain. We found lots of fresh bear poop when we were off the trail which made me very nervous.

Great hike! would like to try to hike the boulder field next time without the dog. But for a shorter hike and less experienced hikers, stay on the other side of the mountain and don't do the loop. ❤

The trail and the views were amazing. This trail is for more experienced hikers. The trails aren't marked very well so pay attention. Watch out for the snakes!

Never hiked the trail but I've been going to these falls for a very long time at least 3 times a year. It's a great place to relax and have lunch by the falls.

It was the start of the hottest days of this summer and after a little rain. Getting to this location made me want a jacked up truck because of how bad the road was. I parked my car at a gentleman's house after asking permission and started my hike.

The hike was nothing but up with no alternating slopes. The only animals I've seen were bugs and a bat when I reached the top. The flies and mosquitoes were particularly annoying being there the whole time.

I started this hike (walk) just off of weikert run road and came up the back up the ridge to go out on chimney rock.

it was pretty and followed weikert run for a little bit. the view from the top by chimney lunch is nice.

it's a short hike, 2 maybe 3 miles to chimney rock and back.

I'd pack a lunch next time and sit up on the rocks overlooking the creek next time to enjoy it a bit more.

The trail was not easy to find. You take Huckleberry Lane for about 1/3 mile. You will pass some houses. If you come to a gate you went too far. The trail is on the left just after the last house on the left before the gate. It crosses over the creek and goes up the hill.
