Definitely do the Backbone. It was so beautiful I felt like I was on the AT

Just an all around great park , plenty of scenic views and waterfalls , and at the fork of the rivers is great for creeking in the summer .

Great hike for a family! Multiple waterfalls and easy to get to!

Great views of waterfalls. Clearly marked and well maintained especially if you do the trail clockwise.

Loved this trail! Have to do a few deep scrambles to get down to the water for good waterfall views. Well marked, and well maintained. I would rate the climb and descent from Backbone Ridge trail (the lower right as seen on this trail map) as moderate though, it's pretty steep both up and back down.
