Short trail, can be muddy and slippery after a couple of days of rain. There is a $5/day parking fee in the park.

Great short trail, easy to start however there are a few areas, especially along the water fall that could be rated as moderate. The ice formations in the water fall were awesome!This park is beautiful, even with temps around 20F....

This is a great trail! but even though it’s short i might say it could be called moderate and not easy

Lovely brief stroll to a delightful multi-tiered cascade. Looking forward to returning when the water levels improve.

The park maps were hard to read as to where this trail started. We had done the Lake Loop and had a hard time finding this trail. We actually went in at the exit. Beautiful waterfalls make this short loop a great hike.

My kids loves this! It gets pretty rocky around the waterfall area. A few fun bridges to cross as well

I hiked on July 4th after a really rainy weekend. The ground was wet still but the hike itself was still fairly easy. Nearer to the waterfall the hike went from a walk to a bit more inclined to trekking over some rocks that were slick from the weather. The blazes were easy to follow and clearly marked. The waterfall was a great payoff. Also pay attention through the trees for great views of the valley. The area is notorious for bears and we heard one but never saw it on the hike. Once back in the car we saw a cub so when hiking here know your bear safety. There were lots of other wildlife: woodpeckers, chipmunks and deer. So overall a short, moderate hike with lots of great wildlife and scenery.

Lovely hike! Just enough rise & fall to get your heart rate up! Beautiful views & really well marked! We heard a few pileated woodpeckers as well! We will be back! Great place to take a picnic!

This is a nice trail, moderate incline so you get a good stretch for the short distance. I hiked with my children and our black lab and we ALL loved it! Beautiful views and access to the waterfalls. (easy). We were campers at Fort Mountain, where this is just one of the trails and found it to be a lovely place to visit.
