Took our teenagers and had a great day. Went down to the falls and had a great time.

one of the best hiking, bicycling trails around. if you hike the falls it is one of the best hikes I ever been on.

Beautiful trail that runs along Black Creek. The water was up a bit today, so it was rapid in several places. We walked the more difficult trail right along the waters edge for the first mile and loved it. Will definitely be back to try some of the peripheral trails that branch off this one.

The drought has dried up this place severely, still a nice area. Hopefully we can get some rain and get it flowing again.

It was a beautiful climb down and under the falls definitely made the trip worth it. There wasn't much water on our trip and there was trash everywhere. Would definitely do it again.

Not for hiking down with a camera loose, place in your camera bag or backpack.

Pretty hike, but lots of trash and the trail through the gorge is not well marked.

This is my most favorite trail because I love the falls! I have been here many times growing up but it was my first time back as a teen and we have been back 3 times in the last 2 weeks. The hike is great because it can be as easy or as difficult as you would like it to be depending on which part of the trails to the falls you take. The caves and boulders are more amazing than I remember and standing in front of the falls on the sand with the mist from the falls blowing towards you is an awesome cool off!
