Great view and a challenging hike, trail needs a bit more maintenance, but I guess that's what makes it difficult.

Beautiful trail, easy to follow, lovely waterfalls

A great trail not far from home. In my opinion the most scenic trail in Hickory Run State Park. Don t let the name intimidate you, A great short hike if you are in the area.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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