Easy walk/hike with amazing views. Suitable to bring children, and or older relatives visiting. Clean restrooms on several locations along the trail. The trails are wide, and partly paved. It's sometimes crowded, especially during summer. I've done the hike many times. The waterfalls are magical. Not a very challenging hike.

The rock, seeing all three falls and the pretty McCloud river makes this a wonderful hike - enjoyed the beauty.

Middle Falls makes it worth the other shortcomings. Easy to find - parked in lower falls area. Nice falls but nothing to get excited. The hike has 2 downsides - first 1/2 miles is on asphalt and for well over half the hike you are working NEAR the river but cant see it so pretty boring. When you get to the Middle Falls really amazing. You then can go up to the rim and walk down to the upper falls which is ok. Walk back on a fairly boring hike ......but Middle falls is really special
