It was nice. Creek is beautiful. Little to easy though for my liking. The scenery and setting really feels like Hobbit land. Lot of mossy rocks and paths. Cool waterfalls along the way.

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.

Short but oh so sweet

Had a nice time there in the snow. Easy, enjoyable little hike w/ some cool stone features, and close ups of the waterfalls.

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.

Way too crowded in the summer

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

We loved this trail. It runs along the creek with lovely little water falls and a place for the pup to cool off. interesting twists and turns through rodedendrum and under trees. some very interesting dams, and little ponds. It was a fantastic afternoon hike.

nice, easy trail with some picturesque views - took dogs on trail, they loved it. only issue was finding the place, parked where the 'amphitheatre' was then walked down from there

The park map lists this trail as difficult and i agree. There are parts where it is easy, but few.

Nice 2 mile trail to see, covered with lots of pines and a forest of rhododendron to keep you cool. A few waterfalls and ponds..worth the look.

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.
