This is a beautiful trail. I’ve never been lucky enough to go while the waterfall is flowing. Be prepared for many stops on the way out.

Well worth the long trip there and the even harder trip back! It was beautiful! I went on 11/10/17.

This was a pretty pleasant hike with lovely sights at the Walls, which are deserving of the title. Like many others have said: beware the hike back. It's about 2-2.5 hours one way, so don't neglect your need for a breather and water, especially going back up.
Also, the water is cold as hell... so mind your footwear. Even with my favorite hiking boots, I manage to slip on a rock near the main part. Watch out for that.

The hike in was pretty easy, hike out was tough, especially the last mile or so. Beautiful hike, well worth it!

We were a week late for the leaves, but great hike and beautiful ending. gps measured 3.5 miles. 7 miles total. THE hike out is pretty difficult especially carrying a pack.

Loved this trail. They weren’t kidding when they said the trek up would be tough, but it was worth it. I liked how the trail was winding back and forth instead of a straight incline up. Definitely climb the rocks to get to the final falls, but watch your step! It can be slick. Also, there were lots of bees when we went last week - the parking lot was swarming with them.

Great trail! Tougher coming out so make sure you are prepared unless really experienced.

love this trail I go usually once a month. a little tough going back up. I usually tote a backpack and it's really not that bad. at the bottom (optional) be sure to climb the rock and go seethe hidden waterfall. it's so worth it and only a little farther.
