Great trip! The hike out might be challenging to some but it is well worth it!

Go all the way to the park lodge and walk around back on the left side of the lodge past the pool. The trail head is marked there and very visible. Trail is easy to follow and not super long. Waterfall is awesome! Went on a Wednesday afternoon and saw about 15 people during the hike.

Spent the whole day exploring Petit Jean and this was by far our favorite spot. We could've sat by the waterfall all afternoon. Not a hard hike, but it's a little bit of a trip coming back up lol. Wonderful and well worth it! We even braved the high water (from recent rainfall) to go behind the waterfall. Just amazing.

Hiked this trail today. Went early and it was not crowded at all. Very beautiful. Took a 8 and 10 year old and they did great! The hike back out is tough. Well worth the trip.

Beautiful falls and so much to see. Towards the end in your way back is difficult if you aren't used to steep hiking. So worth it though!

I love this trail. The best is in late spring or summer in the middle of a weekday when it's not crowded. Swimming in the waterfall pond is tough to beat.

Beautiful hike. Getting to the waterfall is easy, and delightful. You may pay for the splendid view on the way back though. I would agree that this trail is moderate.
