Did a variation and came down Tots Gap Road.

Great ~3 mile loop trail - completed it in about 1.5 hours. It is worth doing the short off-shoot to see the waterfall. When we went there were still a few trees down around the falls, but still beautiful. Well marked. Few lookouts, benches, and an old stone fireplace randomly in the middle.

Great view, I did the whole loop, trail well marked. Not hard at all, pretty easy for beginners.I love it

Really nice moderate trail. This trail offers everything. Ponds, river, waterfall, views, trails through forest and all nicely marked.

beautiful trail, marked very well and easy to navigate. Amazing view at the waterfall, steep climb after waterfalls but besides that very moderate hike. clean park and very informative with maps.

Nice loop. Has it all... streams, ponds, well-marked, lovely ecosystems enriched by interesting factoids with the trail guide. Spring rains made the falls all the more beautiful!

It was a beautiful trail and moderate!

hiking loved it!!

Great short hike.

Nice easy hike today. The trash was cleaned out and the falls were pumping. I little damp from last nights rain but we were the only ones here and the birds were singing. Great hike!

We parked on Old Mine Road at Coppermine, took Kaiser (Blue) at fork, Kaiser to AT (white) north bound to Rattlesnake Swamp (orange),then Mohican Road back to AT briefly, and finished up on Coppermine. Kaiser is rocky, but evens out before AT with good views of PA, at AT junction views on both sides, looking forever south and east. There are mind blowing overlooks southeast from AT, especially after you pass Mohican Lodge and continue up the AT to Rattle Snake Swamp Trail. Coppermine descending toward the Delaware is shaded and along a brook with small waterfalls. Look for the barred mineshaft on the uphill side mead the bridged stream crossings. This route was 9.4 miles with nearly 2000 ft of elevation gain.

Great trail. Well marked. I'd rate it easy except the incline is a little challenging especially bc it comes right after you trek down to the falls and then back up a significant incline. But it's a good challenge. Not crowded at all, went on early April on a Saturday afternoon.

The falls were beautiful but there was so much trash on the trail it really detracted from the experience.

Extremely well kept! Perfect mix of terrain with some great views and even a couple of water falls!

my kids and I have been coming to this trail for years we love it

Very easy trail. Nice and quiet on a March morning. Great place for two seven year old boys to find things to do.

We went counter clockwise on the loop. Snow packed with only one slippery hill, but with ice Trax were no issue. Park and trail took a beating with the spring storms but still wonderful to saunter about. Tumbling Falls waterfall is great, wished we built a snowman at the bottom of the falls. The most arduous part of the trail for us was right after the falls as we went to the top of the Vista. Great view and worth the loop. A little over 3 miles and took us 70 year olds. a little under 3 hours for the loop.

I would recommend this trail for a nice dog walk or just a visit to a waterfall not far from a roadway. It’s a lovely spot to read a book or even hang a hammock. Very peaceful and quite pretty after the rainfall. Mind the rocks of the waterfall ! Not recommended to climb. It’s slippery slate rock, you can easily receive a deep laceration and of course fall.

I really liked this trail. Physically under the conditions of the ice and snow it was very hard. I think if you do this trail clockwise it would be much easier. I did it CCW and it's a lot of steep uphill that would have been downhill...lol. Anyhow you are rewarded with some beautiful views and waterfalls. My dogs loved the hike as well. Now I know why I kept passing hikers going the opposite way...:P

off trail

Hiked today after the deep freeze. The falls were frozen on the edges. Rocks covered in ice while the trails were slushy and muddy. To be expected just wear proper footwear. It’s a fairly moderate hike. Not recommended for young kids. No scrambles but to get to the falls it’s off the main trail. Worth it.

Super easy falls to get to. I had trouble finding the starting point to the trail but thanks to a previous review found it. It a beautiful waterfall with some cascades prior to it and below it.

End of December 18... trails in good shape- enjoyed both Falls! Be sure to have hiking shoes

Beautiful, peaceful hike even with the fallen trees. The moderate incline is worth the view and there is a bench to sit and enjoy it. Follow the spur to the falls, it's easy and beautiful. They did a good job clearing the path so we can access the trail. Wear your boots, especially after the rain we've been getting.

Go all the way up the Hill, pass the parking lot on your right, make a left where it says road Closure ahead. pass the house on your right and Trailhead will be on your left just before the bridge. I'd turn around and park by the 4 rocks that mark entrance facing the way you just came in(only about 3-4 parking spots available). Narrow flat descending trail, About .2 miles down it will open up and you'll see the beautiful waterfall on your right. we continued down the trail over a few logs but the trail changed into a hill ascend that might need both hands at which point we turned around since we had 2 pups with us. short easy spot if you have no time or for a fast pit stop to stretch legs like we did. no one was there but on our way up the was a nice older couple parking their car and we have them directions bc they started walking towards the bridge so we went to give them directions. and the gentleman turned around and said yeah I know, we just to cut school to hang out here lol and we all laughed. at least he was a really nice local!

This trail was really well marked with a bunch of really beautiful views! Make sure to take the survey at the center to help them keep their funding. This is a great trail and I highly recommend!

This was a moderate trail, though it did get steep at a few points. The trail is pretty easy to follow and the optional waterfall detour is definitely worth it.

After you park on the left continue up the hill past the wooden rail on the left you'll see the trailhead. This trail is not that hard, but if you want to go down to the falls, which is worth it, you'll have some steep descents and climbs.
