great trail in the rainy season, don't expect any water at the falls, unless you go after a real good rain.

Very nice Trail! Nice wide path to the falls if you bare left and hike the route counter clockwise. Decent waterfall with good height on the falls just not a tremendous amount of water. If you continue under the falls and complete the look the trail is not as well defined however if you should be able to see pretty worn area for most of the trip back to parking lot. Great little place for a picnic. Would recommend to all level of hikers. I also continued on and did the Johns Mount ain loop to make the the entire trip (both loops) a 4 mile hike.

Trail has a decent view but I wouldn't consider this to be an easy trail.

Very hard to walk on, I would not rate this easy. Hilly and rocky.

We hiked it yesterday with our 6 and 4 year old girls, and our two dogs. Though the trail and falls were completely dry thanks to our drought, we had a blast looking at the beautiful trees. The view from the top made it worth it for our girls and we will definitely hike again in the Spring after a few good rains. After we worked up a sweat, we went and cooled off in the springs at the Pocket!

Not enough rain for a waterfall but was still a nice hike with a beautiful view from the top. Pretty easy hike for little(6&9 yrs old) kids.

It recently rained, but not enough to get anything coming over the falls. It was a nice little hike. Well maintained and easy.

Overall I would give this hike about 4 stars, The only reason i gave it 3 is because there was no falls for our hike. Apparently the flow on this waterfall depends on how much water we have received recently and because it has not rained in a couple weeks it was little more then a drip. As for the hike itself, i loved it. Mostly old growth forest, big tall oaks and pines. new sassafras saplings littered the forest floor. The trail was rocky at parts but not by any means difficult.
