Great little hike, a bit slippery and lots of roots to step over. Great scenery. Only saw one small snake.

My family really enjoyed this trail. So many beautiful sites. Glad I wore hiking boots because it did get rocky in some areas. Also a nice little playground off to the side of the trail at one point. On our way back our toddler got to play at the park and that was a bonus for her ❤

Stopped here on my drive home to Buffalo. It was beautiful! One of the most beautiful trails I have ever seen. Felt like I was in a rainforest! I did go in the beginning of summer, after a lot of rain. It was amazing! I do however think this was a moderate trail. A lot of rocky areas, I personally don't think my children could handle it, and I see easy as great for kids!

Delightful trail featuring two waterfalls. I only wish it were longer.

Easy marked trail to the base of Hawk Falls. There are side trails throughout that are a bit rocky that can be shortcuts, but if you stick to the yellow marked trail you will get to the same spot.

love this trail and waterfall. it's quick and easy but the scenery is beautiful.

This place is just wow fun to play n explore.

I enjoyed this Trail when I went. I went with my mom and my seven-year-old son. None of us had any issues on the trail whatsoever. There are very few areas where it gets rocky and of course some spots were tree roots arise on the trail. Other than that the trail is very easy to maneuver. There is a very beautiful waterfall that is nice to take pictures in front of. We passed a lot of people with dogs which was really nice to see. It seems as though a lot of the dogs were swimming, so if you have a dog that likes water this is definitely a place for you to go! I will go back to this trail with my son again sometime in Fall to see it when the leaves have changed colors.

Hiked this with friends, quiet and peaceful, lovely waterfall , and a brook runs along much of the trail.
