Tough climb back up but worth it

A bit much for young kids

Love this trail. Have hiked about 5 times so far. A favorite. Easier each time. Totally worth it.

Nice moderate loop just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The waterfall was a bit dry, and the Parkway overlooks will give you better views, but it's a great walk in the woods. The trail description is a good guide.

I went counterclockwise, and all the inclines were fairly gradual. The declines could be a bit steep. Trail is very well marked and well maintained. Dog friendly.

Great hike to waterfall and pretty quick. Gets busy during midday. We brought our dog and wish we would have gone earlier in the day to avoid the people.

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.
