We loved it. Although I'm assuming it's rated easy because it's flat. However it's long and I would consider it quite rocky and marshy in most areas through out the treck. We liked the Narrowness of the trail the most and not heavily popular.

Nice short walk w a little incline on way out beautiful views of waterfall

I've hiked this twice now, once starting at the route 534 trailhead, and at the Oakland dirt rd trailhead. if you are in a rush or don't want to hike far, go with the 534 start, but the much better way from a scenic standpoint and leaving the throngs of people behind is to follow the yellow orchard trail along the creek over to hawk falls via the back way. many great places to wade in and fantastic lunch rocks.

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.

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.

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

What a beautiful walk, easy for an old man like me with plenty of easy access to the falls. Most definitely will be back after the next heavy rain to check out the falls.

Love this trail. I am not very physically fit and I was able to complete it. It would be nice if the places to actually see the waterfall were marked. There are several locations where you can hear it, but you have to maneuver your way around lots of rocks to get a good view. It was nice to be able to get so close to it though.

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.

Great for kids, all ages.

The trail there is 3 stars- boulder field is awesome and would give that 4 stars

Fun, easy hike with waterfalls

Great hike for young kids. It's out and back with a lovely waterfall at the turn point. The trail is pretty easy and has lots of opportunities to play in the water and scramble over rocks. My girls (ages 2 and 5) had a great time.

Nice short loop to get out in nature with a waterfall. Great for introducing dogs (or kids) to hiking and getting in the water.
