Great trail! Only saw a couple people on this hike. Very shaded and scenic! Highly recommended!

Easy trail. Very busy lots of people, if possible go before large crowds...before 9am. Parkin lot fills up fast.

Awesome trail. Not too long and the reward of getting to the waterfall makes it all work it.

Great park. Well worth the drive. We will return

Nice trail. Did the loop clockwise which had a steep but short downhill. Nice meadows and the walk along the stream is nice. Waterfall is a bit of an exaggeration, but still a good walk.

We started at the top of the trail. Parked at the Boulder Field lot, crossed the boulders, and started the trek. It is slowly downhill the whole walk down therefore it's slowly uphill the way back. Uneven terrain. Rocky in areas, narrow passages, some trees to crawl over. Beautiful, thick woods. We crossed with a few people on the 3.5 mile each way trip, mostly serene though. Not much to see other than the foliage on this trail and the field.

If you start at the top, you can follow this trail all the way to 534 then cross over and hook up with Hawk Falls Trail.

Nice quick hike out and back to the falls with plenty of stops along the way. There were tons of people here so arrive early. Parking was scarce when we were finished with the hike due to so many cars. My two pups enjoyed playing in the water and met a few friends along the way. There are a lot of areas along the way and at the falls for people/kids to swim and relax. Definitely coming back since it's an easy hike to a nice place to relax.
