This was the most beautiful hike I've ever done! The waterfall at the end of the trail is breathtaking. I would strongly recommend this hike.

Great leisurely hike! Views at the top are grand and the trail is definitely not as busy as sharp top.

Longish and leisurely hike. It was nice to have people direct us as they were coming down and we were nearing the top on how to find the best view from the summit. The sign at the top is heavily covered and can be misleading that you made it to the summit but are still in the woods. Loved the benches for a break every now and again.

This hike was quick and pleasant. The downhill to the falls was relaxing. The falls themselves, though small, were very unique. I went in the summertime and the entire trail was lush and green. Though the uphill on the way back was a bit difficult, it is not far. The trail was well-maintained, and I never felt like I was going to slip on the way up or down.

Easy almost a straight shot going up..

Short hike from Blue Ridge Parkway of approximately one mile. Pretty steep coming back up if you are not in great shape but otherwise very clean and beautiful. It is a small waterfall cascading over small boulders.

My first difficult trail. Sort of by mistake. The steep trail was a definite workout. The views, falls and rock formations are beautiful

Beautiful views, I also combined the hike with the adjacent Apple orchard and Cornelius trails.

I combined the Apple Orchard trail and Cornelius creek trail. Great hike but very tiring!

Difficult, steep climb on the way back but the beautiful falls make it worth every step!

We have gone on this hike several times now. We love it. It's quick but will give you a work out!

Beautiful trail. The trail is steady elevation change the whole way so make sure you are ready for it.

This trail is well maintained, and is a relatively easy climb. Although it is not a short one. Just a nice stroll through the woods really. A bit long for my 5 year old, so we carried her back down. The views from the rock outcropping is spectacular, although extremely difficult to get to, and dangerous. Unfortunately we had to turn back at that point due to my bad knee, so we were not able to summit. I would say a good trail for children that may be a bit older (only because of length), and also great for dogs.
