Go for the views! Went after a week of rain and the falls were unimpressive. However, the hike is unique and the views are lovely! There is nothing really difficult about this trail. There were several children enjoying it with their families. Be sure to check out the Shirley Miller Wildflower trail while you're in the area:)

I did the entire loop. I know this trail is rated easy, but that's where I disagree. Some parts of the trail were very treacherous being wet and very narrow. You have to wade through several streams, so make sure to wear your water proof hiking boots! I wouldn't take kids under the age of 8 on this trail. Other than that, the scenery is breathtaking!

Really nice hike. Pretty rocky and narrow. Would not say this is great for all skill levels. Requires some good effort in a few spots. Fantastic views and scenery along the way.

Trail might have been OK except the bugs were HORRIBLE! I have never had to swat and rub that many bugs off of me. They were in our hair, ears and eyes, not to mention the sweat bees that stung us over 20 times. I won't go back.

The view is definitely worth the hike. Lots of fun, but definitely would rate this a moderate trail.

A fun little trail. If you decide to do the full loop from the waterfall it gets a little more rocky and harder. There's two waterfalls if you follow the loop beyond the first one.
