Need to be very careful to not lose the track. But, otherwise it is a great hiking experience.

was a very nice hike with lots of ups and downs, some areas more challenging then others. lost the blue trail a few times, but enjoyed the side trails too.

I really like this loop, 6.4 miles with nice little ups and downs. Thought I'd see a little more wildlife today but I guess they were chilling another part of the forest. It's a great walk for any time of the year.

Good hike! Some spots got a little tricky to navigate because of the leaves.

Nice moderate, long hike. The falls were bone dry today which wasn't a big surprise. Only saw one other couple out in the woods (who caused me to have to second a previous reviewer's plea: leash your nasty aggressive dogs, people!!).

The trail is inconsistently blazed. There are sections where it's totally obvious where the trail is, and in those sections the blazes are abundant, and then in sections where unmarked trails intersect with the blue trail, or the trail makes a sharp turn and isn't easy to see, there are no blazes at all. My guesses as to where to go turned out to be correct luckily, but it would be nice if there was no guessing involved!

The loop took me just under 3 hours to complete and all in all, was a great hike. Not many bugs on this cool fall day.

loved this trail got lost but found my way around thanks to another hiker can't wait to do it again
