Gorgeous waterfall! I took my 86 year old mom to see!! It’s right by the parking lot!!

Beautiful falls! You may have to wait in line to cross the suspension bridge depending on the season (number of people), but it’s worth it to hike around down by the falls. The overlook view is gorgeous as well.

My wife and I loved this place, Cane Creek falls was gorgeous!!

Wonderful place. Not much hiking but a lot to see in a small area. Be aware that you must have a permit to enter the cave. You can get them by calling Fall Creek Falls. The cave is also closed in the winter months but it’s still worth the visit

Man this hike was pretty! Pretty easy trail, wear good hiking shoes though.

Beautiful trail! Did it in the middle of the week in February and it was actually very trafficked. The falls was very pretty!

Went over the Easter weekend. Quite busy and had to wait to get across the suspension bridge. Great views of the waterfall. Like that you can go right down to the water.

I’ve been hiking here since I was a child. Great day hike and plenty of other activities to do in the park.

easy hike, trail well marked.

Great hike! It is challenging, especially when you hike down to the bottom of the falls because the hike back up is a rough one. I love this state park and it holds so many different waterfalls so I would highly recommend that you try all of the falls out! Also, if you can get a chance to see these falls in the winter, I would highly recommend it!

Great, challenging trail well worth the hike.

Best trail at this great park! This trail provides awesome lookouts of Cane Creek Gorge, Cane Creek Falls, and of course Fall Creek Falls, and it really isn’t that long of a trail. I recommend doing this hike early in the morning and catching a sunrise at one of the overlooks!

stunning in winter with the ice and snow..beautiful area

Had a lot of fun in the park with the family. Looking forward to going back. ; )

This trail if full of amazing views and makes for a great weekend trip.

Pretty cool place. Been wanting to check it out for a while. Was not disappointed. Took my 6 year old. Short walk from the parking area. Waterfall was really nice. The cave was closed d/t the bats hibernating. Will definitely go back when I can go all the way thru!

A quick hike for two hiking fans who don’t hike often! I was a little nervous about the moderate rating, but it was definitely manageable! We went down to the gorge so there were a lot of downhill steps which was the hardest part for me as someone with bad knees. Beautiful sight to see the bottom of the gorge and the base of the waterfalls this winter with icicles all about!

Would have given I️t a 4 Star if this trail had better marking. The trail is beautiful and the overlooks are great. You can see at least two different waterfalls in the winter. The signage is confusing but we managed to make the loop. Once you park in the parking lot, then follow the trail that crosses the road, keep going until the trail splits. There are signs at the split but I️t does not mention a loop. Go to the left towards the outlooks and follow the purple blazes and I️t will loop you back around to that same split.

Short trail with spectacular views.

Short hike but worth it! Waterfall was amazing. The cave is to the left off the trail on the way back to the parking lot. It was closed for hibernating bats just a couple days ago when I was there. It isnt as hard to find as I had read- there are signs for it on the road.

Beautiful. Make sure you go all the way to the top of dam. Lots of water today although I do not know what normal water level is.

Cool trail. Plan on doing the Cable Trail, Fall Creek Falls, and the swinging bridge at Piney Creek Falls on the same day. All short but amazing.

Over looks where nice but the trail isn't marked well.

The overlooks were nice. One was completely grown over so you couldn't see the falls. Easy trail for the dogs. We went mid-October, meaning the park was packed so this was a nice, empty trail. Met maybe 2 other hikers along the way.

Overall, we really liked this trail; however, it is poorly marked, so we had to rely on the GPS on our phones to make sure we stayed on the trail. There is one spot where you have to get up on the road briefly, which would not be ideal with young children or during heavy traffic (there were very few people up there when we were there during the week, so it wasn't a problem for us). If the trail was better marked, we would have given it a 4/5. It's a very pretty trail.

Love the horseshoe shape at top.

Great workout in the woods. Several "overlook" spar trails to explore. Beautiful fall colors.
