It was a bit muddy in spots, but very passable. Easy trail for the whole family to do (as long as you don’t mind stairs and small hills). Some beautiful views of the river and falls along the way. Will definitely do this one again.

I would have loved to have walked this trail but the pandemic has forced it to close. It seems silly that I can try to search a store for yeast, but can’t walk through the wilderness without catching a virus. Shame. Hope it opens soon. Lots of lawbreakers parked on the highway outside the entrance, all getting tickets as we drove by disappointed. Wanted to give this a five. But hoping that one star will draw attention to “closed”. Not an accurate rating of the park.

Beautiful hike with spectacular views of the falls. Upper bridge was closed due to forestry maintenance. Still a great hike!

This very easy hike was spectacular today due to the high water level. The power of the river is very cool.

Overall great! Very easy with great waterfalls

Awesome early fall day on this very easy, wonderful water fall system. Well worth the stop.

So many super vantage points along the trail. Serene picnic area just off the parking with several picnic tables out in the open and a beautiful covered area for rainy days. Quite enjoyed all the twists and turns the trails took. There were enough stairs and small hills to climb along the circuit that made me stop now and again to catch my breath. Not too busy and an overall super easy to moderate hike

so glad we made time for this 2 mile hike. Easy with modest elevation gains it is a great hike because of its proximity to the river. the trail follows the river on both sides so you can view it from all different angles. the various drops and gorges create some really pretty waterfalls. they are not huge, but substantial enough to thoroughly enjoy. Unfortunately the Dec 2018 tree blow down prevents you from crossing at the bridge furthest down the trail.

This trail has so many options and offshoots to explore! You can go swimming in a small lagoon towards the bottom

Great, easy trail with amazing views! We did the loop instead of going up the river so we were able to see both the upper and lower falls.

Trail is closed to the public recent flooding has made this trail unsafe. Tree hazards need to be removed. Will try again when it hopefully reopens.

Make sure to check out swimming hole above upper falls, before brown wooden middle bridge down dirt path. Awesome!
