Went with my children over thanksgiving break. The trail was easy enough for them, ages 6 & 8. It was difficult to find the trailhead as it is not well marked at all. It was dry when we went so the waterfall was small, but the rocks were fun to climb on.

There's nothing "moderate" about this trail. In fact, there's really not even a trail at all. After walking through the woods and relatively thick brush you get to squeeze through aggressive rock formations. When we finally made it to the grotto, while the grotto itself was beautiful there was only a tiny trickle of water. Minimal reward for the effort. If you decide to go, DO NOT wear a hiking sandal. This "trail" requires boots to not only protect your feet but also your ankles as you are in all sorts of precarious positions. Trail is challenging to find and completely unmarked. As one reviewer said you park across the street. When you are in the woods, the trail will split off, STAY LEFT.... we couldn't see this as there was a fallen tree and the path isn't well worn to begin with.

Shortly past the Haw Creek campground is a road to a dirt "parking" area. Park. Then walk back across the main road. Look for a wooden sign that marks the trail. This is a great hike with lots of ups and downs. Great place to turn over rocks and look for salamanders.

Nice short hike! Took a bit to find trailhead though. It wasnt marked. Me and my 2 kids loved it though. Lots of caves and the grotto at the end was very cool!!

Was a bit difficult to get around the boulder, but once through...beautiful must see place!

There was even some 'entertainment' coming back out as a couple were climbing on the bluffs!
