I did the entire loop in addition to the Creek Side trail to the falls, the Overlook trail, and a couple miles into the blue trail and back for a total of 7 miles. As other reviewers are saying, the ‘White Bail-Out’ portion can only be called a “trail” by those with a very good imagination and the prescribed path is very hard to follow. Down by the creek/falls area there are numerous short offshoots that make you think you finally figured it out but no, that’s not it either. This imaginary trail is straight up and down, very rocky and not at all safe. I personally enjoyed the workout, aside from the confusion, but I am an avid hiker with a lot of miles behind me and I would not recommend it for children, pets, or those who are less than fit.

Good time, was a lot of straight up and down by the falls and the trail gets a little tricky around there. A lot of side trails that cut off and can get confusing but all lead back to the main “white” trail and the way out. Good work out for under 2 miles.

This trail is definitely a quad burner! Very picturesque. Warning: the portion of the trail labeled “White Bail-Out” just below the wider White Trail is little more than a suggestion. I found myself off it about six times and had to course correct. I did the whole loop, plus the hike down and back again to the bottom of the falls, plus the overlook trail and clocked in at four miles. Great exercise!

I decided to do this trail 3/15/20 to take advantage of all the rain we’ve had lately. The waterfall and creek were delightful to see and hear. However, the trail not so much. The descent from the white trail to the bottom of the falls is terribly eroded and dangerous. The ascent on the other side is not clearly marked and very steep. I don’t think many hikers go up that way. At the top on the blue trail are swaths of birds foot violets. The blue/green part of the trail was pleasant and you can see from the top of the falls if you take a side trail off the blue trail.

Great trail. Especially after a lot of rain. Moderate is being kind though. The hills will definitely let you know what kind of shape you are in. Climbing down to the falls was rocky but worth it. I definitely want to do this trail again. However there are other ways to get to the falls if you don’t want a long hike.

Great hike! There are some places where it’s hard to find the trail. I went off twice, but was able to find my way back. Several very steep, rocky areas.

The GPS signal down by the lower falls gets poor and the trails were somewhat poorly marked. From the falls just make sure to follow the white trail back to Parking—overall a great hike, though!

February after rain was great. Not a lot of people around, you can hear the falls before you see them, and the trails are well maintained. There is a bit of a scramble if you want to go be at the foot of the falls themselves just take your time and step carefully.

It was awesome!!! Lots of waterfall views, top of the canopy views and beauty in general. I got a little off trail but it was easy to find my way back. My pup loved the creek and climbing. We'll be back for sure.

Great trail! Best after a good rain when the water is flowing.
