The trail in to the waterfall is all downhill, so the hike out is all uphill. The trail starts out as an old jeep trail and turns into a narrow path. The destination is the waterfall. The waterfall is unique in that the water has worn through the ledge and plummets through a round hole. The trail in to the water fall is all down hill, so the hike out is all up hill. The trail starts out as an old jeep trail and turns into a narrow path. The destination is the water fall. The water fallis unique in that the water has worn through the ledge and plummets through a round hole instead of over the ledge. Thus the name Glory Hole. Always best to hike in the spring or late fall when water is flowing. Well worth the hike. use extreme caution approaching the water fall from the top

This was such a nice hike for a Sunday morning. We took our two kids (14 and 8) and they loved it. It rained pretty well this week so all of the waterfalls were in action and looked great! Aside from the crowd, we really enjoyed this. I'll echo everyone else and say that the climb back up hill definitely got us winded, but it was well worth it. Pack a lunch and make a day of it!

Easy walk in and easy walk out that will get your heart rate up. We took an 8yr old and she enjoyed exploring the falls. Kid friendly under supervision. Take the side trail to the water and follow it to the hole. The drive was amazing. You know your close when you see a red barn with a big "E" on the side.

Remember... take your trash with you... Don't ruin a beautiful area because your careless and selfish. Your mother is not there cleaning up after you.

Easy hike in, incline most of the way out. Make sure to allow a chunk of time to explore around the falls.

Beautiful trail with plenty to see along the way. Getting to the waterfall, I'd rate this trail as easy. Getting back to the trailhead, it's more moderate. You're downhill on the way in and uphill on the way out. Still a gorgeous trail and the end is worth every step.

Great hike. Pretty easy trail to get to the falls. Once you get to the falls there's a lot of room to explore the creek and boulders
