Nice place to walk dogs, not far from interstate

Great spot for a short hike, weekends are crowded. Definitely going back sometime during the week when less people are there. Nice waterfalls and beautiful views. Wouldn’t mind camping here.

Very easy hike with multiple waterfall views. Path was clear and well maintained. Dog friendly. Would definitely do it again!

Very nice trail, but it isn't very well marked, we felt like we were off the trail a lot of the time when we weren't. Not a deal breaker at all. Avoid the backbone trail if you aren't very agile, it's really not marked well and is the most difficult there so says the ranger. We had to turn back.

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