Great, easy trail with beautiful lookouts!

Absolutely beautiful hike- we took a slightly different route, and would definitely rate this trail as moderate-difficult. Full review and more pics coming soon to our blog www.Wander-Full-Life.com ✨

Breathtaking fall at the end of a fun, but wee bit difficult hike. It's an unfinished trail, so parts of it feel like you are actually off trail. Lots of rocks to hop across. Trail is well marked most of the way.

My husband and I did this trail on Sunday and it was amazing. We drove 2 hours and it was well worth it as a day date.

The waterfall is amazing, the hike to it seems longer than what the sign says. The last 1/4 mile or so to the waterfall is very rocky. The waterfall is worth it though, I ran into several hikers who asked if the hike was worth it while heading back.

Fun, easy well kept trail for the whole family! Pretty views in lots of spots.

Beautiful! Short hike, but seems longer. Be ready for some navigating over rocks, both large and small. Stunning waterfall at the end!! On the way out, we hiked up to the trail that follows the bluff. It isn’t marked but you can’t get lost. Well worth it, if you’re game for a little adventure.

What a beautiful waterfall.

An easy little hike, a little boring at first but the view is amazing.

Breathtaking the first time you see it. One of my all time favorite hikes and waterfall.

Beautiful area!!!❤

A short easy trek to the stone door. Beautiful views from just above the stone door. Suitable for kids, dogs and beginning hikers.

The views are amazing in the spring and fall! The hike is not difficult, and the paths are well-kept.

The waterfall at the end was definitely worth the hike!! I was able to hang my hammock up right underneath the waterfall and take about an hour nap. It’s so lightly trafficked, there was no one but me for about an hour and a half, so that was very nice. If you aren’t paying close attention, you’ll lose the trail. It’s completely rock jumping at parts, with no dirt trail to follow. If you’re up for an adventure, i highly suggest this hike!

Beautiful falls. There are many places to hang out when it is busy so you won't​ have to be near other hikers. There are also some good hammocking trees for those who like to do that.

Beautiful trail with a breathtaking waterfall. Denny Cove is our favorite in this area.

Easy hike with some rocky spots at the end coming up on the falls. I went after a huge rain and the falls were raging! Hardly any other foot traffic making other human interaction minimal. (

Chose this hike because of the recent rain. I was not disappointed. The sight and the sound of the water made the day. Very rocky on the way down but slow and steady.

Easy trail with a wonderful top cliff view! Hikers can venture down the stone steps to get the view from the bottom of the cliff

Great overlook of the falls!
