Perfect trail for beginners with a nice waterfall view. What is nice about it, is that you can continue on to the BMT if you so please.

This is a great trail for everyone! I bring my dog on this trail often and have brought my very energetic 5yo nephew. It's a nice little hike to the top and the scenery is beautiful! The fall has little "pools" as you get closer to the top. The drive to the bottom of the trail is also beautiful, Cherrylog is a gorgeous area!

The falls are just a short distance from the parking area. The full trail is a healthy incline, but not too challenging. Was nice though not a lot of variety.

Short trail to the falls. Enjoyable if you don't want to hike much. The trail up from the falls is a good incline but not much to see.

The short ascent to the falls from Stanley Creek Road is Great for family groups and those who just want a quick look at a waterfall. If you take the Benton McKaye trail (BMT) from the falls, you'll get some real exercise, as it is a lengthy uphill climb to the intersection with the Stanley Creek Trail, but a pretty one.

Easy walk to the falls; I agree with other reviewer that it's misleading though

I agree with a previous reviewer; the 2.7 mile hike includes going up to bmt and back down. The map is a bit confusing, but the hike is a good one. It wore our dogs out.

The map is somewhat misleading. The hike just to the falls is not a full mile. However, the Benton Mckaye Trail forks to the left. Go up, check out the falls, then on the way back if you want a longer and more challenging hike take the BMT, which is well marked. The trail map actually goes to the falls, then back tracks to the BMT and traces to BMT to where it connects with the Stanley Loop Trail. if you go to the falls, and also follow the BMT to the Stanley Loop intersection, then back down, it is about 2.7 miles.
