This trail is very easy it is about a mile down to the falls. I recommend bringing water because you could be at the falls for a while. I recommend this trail for all ages because kids like to play in the creek near the falls. If you come in the summer you can go swimming. Over all this is a great trail and the falls are beautiful.

my wife and I hike this trail a lot, mostly on the winter. Hardly used in winter but can get real busy in spring and summer . Best part of this trail is I can be on it in minutes because it's barely a 100 yard from my house.

Nice little hike that has a some nice views along the trail to an overlook of the Lehigh river. Definitely was able to see more during this time of year without leaves on the tree. Trail is relatively easy to follow in the snow and if you're looking for a short hike to get you out of the house this is right up your alley.

Short but pretty trail.

Way too crowded in the summer

Easy hike out and back. The dogs loved every minute of it. We went at a good time during the week so it wasn’t crowded. What an amazing site to see all the boulders.

Nice trail through the woods. Some of it gets a little tight through the rhododendrons but it was very peaceful and relaxing. Boulder field was unique.

Mixed it up...looped fireline into Skyline then down to the railroad along the Lehigh River. 3 miles in all.

Great hike - about 1.5 hrs to complete. Moderately easy with nice views of the stream and some smaller falls

I just did a nice easy in and out section, from Rt 534 Hickory Run Trail to the D&L (Rail Road)

Definitely a unique experience climbing on the boulders. Fire roads made it easily accessible while staying in the park.
