HikingFeeGreat!Rocky

A perfect fall day with beautiful foliage. Pretty moderate, especially the last mile but totally doable. The waterfall was gorgeous!! I can’t wait to explore more of this area.

This was a nice trail with gradual ascents and descents. Nice views of the lake along the way and at the dam.

Steep trail great view at the top. Only downside is hearing traffic from 40 most of the way. When returning be mindful not to take the more obvious trail to the right. It traverses the mountain.

Trail was in really good shape. Walk along the water almost the whole way. Manageable ascents and descents. Great payoff at the damn!

More of a hard trail instead of moderate. But the view is beautiful and you can drive to the viewing point which is right at the beginning of the trail.

This map is completely wrong!....this is a map from Sam's Gap to Devil's CREEK Gap... Sam's Gap to Devil's FORK Gap is the ENTIRELY opposite direction (Southbound) on the AT!....Come on AllTrails.....u're better than this!...you could really screw somebody up with this simple mistake...please correct it!....otherwise, keep up the great work!

Beware of bear hunters in CNF. They apparently are allowed to hunt in trails. Wear bright colors. This was a fun and just right hike for our tweens who loved navigating the fallen trees.

Beautiful hike with a steep descent at the falls. Tips - The trailhead is just past the paid ($1) parking lot. The lot at the trailhead is small. There’s no cellphone coverage for much of the area so have maps or whatever handy and make sure someone knows where you’ll be beforehand. When you see the blue blaze, look to your left for the stone steps down to the falls. It’s a bit hidden. I missed it and walked too far. When you return from the falls, take the trail marked “S.” Trekking poles are highly recommended to help propel you upwards. I wouldn’t recommend hiking this trail when the rocks are wet. I had boots with great traction on and still fell a few times, including two falls that narrowly escaped serious injury, Last, Dennis Cove Rd. Is narrow and twisty, so go slow and watch for oncoming cars.

Starts out easy with a very nice walk under a leaf canopy. Then down a steep stone staircase to breathtaking waterfalls. Then back up the stairs. Loved the hike.

Scenic driving

There are some trails surrounding the falls but we did not walk them, just wasn’t on the days agenda unfortunately. However, this is the easiest water fall I’ve ever been to, drive up, park, you’re there and it’s massive.

Views at the dam.Nice trail. Looks like there’s been some rerouting for fallen trees and it’s hard to tell where you’re supposed to go sometimes. I used the AllTrails map to find my way. Nice views of the lake most of the way, beautiful views at the dam

Steep, very steep. No traffic- were the only ones on the trail. Not much in the way of views other than the very end. Nice trail.

Likely the best falls within this region. The first 1/3 of the hike is easy and flat eventually becoming more rocky with exposed root. The descent down to the falls is a structured “scramble” which is fantastic. Water was flowing well today making for a picture perfect fall day. Highly recommend.

Don't drive to the Alltrails trailhead-- it will dump you in a truck lot on the highway. Instead, navigate via Google Maps to "Sam's Gap" which will bring you to the actual parking lot/trailhead nearby. The parking lot is on a smaller road alongside/beneath the major highway. Otherwise the Alltrails route works fine for the actual hiking route (at least the first 5 miles, which is how far I went). You're mostly in the forest all the way to Big Bald, with a couple openings to vistas along the way.
