Love this trail! Waterfalls and trail is along the creek. We took 4 small children and they enjoyed it. Kid friendly.

My husband and I are in our mid-60’s and enjoyed this trail immensely. It was in the 90’s but we brought lots of fluids. Many people. We will hike this trail again. Took about 2 hours for 2.5 mile trek taking our time.

Awesome trail, beautiful forested trail along Creek. , lots of big rocks and spectacular waterfall in natural rock amphitheater. Definitely worth the hike and mid-May was perfect time to see the falls at their best.

It was a very busy trial, try to avoid during the weekends. Had a beautiful waterfall though!

Getting to the falls is a beautiful stroll. Hanging out among the falls and trees are magical and a great green rest. The last 500 ft back up at the end of the trail is the hardest part.

Excellent trail. The 95 ft waterfall puts an exclamation point on the hike.

We loved this trail! We went in the winter so we had the whole trail to ourselves and the waterfall was beautiful! You hike down to the waterfall, so the most strenuous part is the hike back. We will definitely go again!

Beautiful falls but a lot of people after the rains.

Treacherous, challenging esp after a rain but the destination was worth it! Dont forget to hike all the way to “behind” the waterfalls

The waterfall and pool at the end are definitely worth the trip. It wasn't too hard of a trail there were kids and a few able-bodied older people. The dog managed it fine. Be sure and drive to the overlook as well to get a birds-eye view.

Looooooved. The immediate start of the trail is pretty steep but winds, so just keep that in mind going back up. Beautiful falls st the end.

Perfect for an hour hike. Bit of a workout on the way back.

Went 7-8am on a weekday and was the only one there. The blue hole trail at the bridge is more desolate and unkept, would only recommend if you wanted to explore or exercise.

I loved this trail. There are lots of people on it all the time. So, if you like a less traveled trail this is not for you. Also, when you come back it's all uphill. The waterfall is very pretty. A great short trail to see a beautiful water fall.
