Ravens cliff doesn't have a view per say but the entire hike parallels a scenic creek that makes the entire hike enjoyable from the start. The cliffs at the end are equally as mesmerizing

Heavily used. Lots of folks. But it is worth enduring the crowds. Primitive camping spots along the creek were some of the most idyllic I have seen. Picniced at the foot of the falls. Trail is decent for being so heavily used. Saw all ages and fitness levels enjoying themselves.

Great hike. A bit challenging but it was so worth it. Be prepared to go through a lot of tree routes. When we hiked this trail it was very muddy but not that bad. Make sure you climb a few rocks once you arrive at the falls in order to get to see the falls because it is amazing!

Walked the trail with my family and our two dogs. Absolutely loved that the trail went along the water. There were many opportunities for the dogs to paddle and cool off. We were also able to take off our shoes and socks and get in the water. Make sure you plan for a few hours to complete the trail. At the end, you have to do a bit of climbing to actually see the waterfall but there are a couple along the way that are just as nice. This would also be a nice trail for trail running. Will definitely be back!
