This one has too many rocks and climbing up and down on the rocks. Lake is not clean enough for swimming.

Beautiful trail. I did the outer hardwood trail totaling ~3 miles from start to finish. My 2 year old was strapped to my back and while it was more challenging to go over the roots heading to the waterfall, it wasn’t much of a problem. I would recommend trekking poles and would say this is a moderate trail given the amount of roots and rocks you have to walk over. Totally worth the trip though!

Beautiful trail but lots of tripping stumps and a bit of a challenge climbing around stream with lots of rocks to navigate.

This was a great hike!! It’s a little rocky and there are some roots to watch out for but the payoff is great. The waterfall is beautiful and a nice place to sit. We went a little off the trail but found our way! Highly recommend.

maybe i took wrong trail but definitely moderate in some areas rather than easy. lots of rock scrambles by waterfall.

Great trail many streams- rock crossings. Trail up to the Falls w/rocky scrambles may be tricky for young kids. Falls incredible!

Good for dogs, more trails than shown on map, moderate climb, a little tougher if you go along the falls.
