Waterfalls are decent. No complaints. Completed easily with two small kids and a dog.

Lovely trail. Wasn't sure what to expect. It runs along a large stream. The All Trails locator helped a lot because even though the trail had blue blaze markings, there weren't adequate signs for my taste I guess. The unique thing about this trail was that there is this whitish, fluffy moss in several places with beautiful pines and bald rock in places. Just such a uniquely gorgeous, added bonus.

Trails were muddy due to the rain but the falls were great as a result of recent rains. Weather was great!!

Waterfalls were dry, but it is August. Still neat to see under the falls and the drops from up to down stream. Started as the Blue and switched to orange at the Laurel Falls path. Still good trail, 5 year old, 10 year old, and 12 year old all enjoyed. A little over 2 miles, blue trail trail could use some maintenance, but orange was well maintained.
