Went here a few weekends ago by myself and was presently surprised how easy it was. Got in around 10 with not many people around and by time I left close to 12:15 tons of cars in the parking lot.

Awesome !

3 waterfalls in a short loop. Great first hike for granddaughters 7 and 3

Dingman's Falls park was my first stop of the day so I was the only one there. From the parking lot it takes only 5 minutes to reach Silver Thread Falls along the boardwalk and probably another 30 minutes to reach Dingman's Falls. Due to the wide and level boardwalk this is an ideal place for those requiring handicapped access. The climb up the steps to the top of Dingman's Falls gives a view of an upper falls area but it is really the view from the bottom that is best. Because the top of the falls is not shaded by trees it is best to take pictures of this falls on a cloudy or overcast day.

This park is well-maintained and provides an enjoyable walk along a hard-packed clay trail. the first of three falls that you'll see is Factory Falls with the remains of an old stone mill nearby. Further on is Fulmer Falls which looks nice from the obstructed side view but does not offer a good view from below. And further down is Deer Leap Falls that flows from below the bridge and provides a shallow and picturesque swimming and picnic area below. You can also hike up the other side of the falls for different views.

nice and easy

Easy to do with kids. Come prepared for getting wet, there's a swimming hole at the bottom. Wear water shoes in the swimming hole, it's very slippery.

This was a cute, fun and scenic trail. It was pretty trafficked and hard to walk in some spots because of all of the people, but it was still a nice experience. The waterfalls were beautiful, and the trail was very easy to walk on. It was not steep/rocky/slippery from what I remember. It seemed good for all ages. I saw a few older people walking with ease, and my seven year old son was easily able to complete the trail. If you are in the area and want to walk and see some falls I definitely recommend checking this place out.
