It was a very good trail! Took a 5 and 7 year old and they loved it too. It was longer than we thought but we still had a great time!

This is an amazing hike. If you go shortly after a good rain, you'll be treated with several smaller waterfalls, with Van Hook Falls near the end. Bring your camera and some water! It doesn't get any better than this! You will cross several creeks, so make sure you have good hiking boots, too!

This is a very moderate trail and would benefit from signs showing distance. The sign states that Van Hook Falls is 2.6 miles from the beginning, so would be 5.2 round trip, but we did not map it ourselves. We had a group of 6 and it was a nice little trek. Lots of flat spots, but toward the end more elevation down and climbing or stepping carefully over sandstone rocks. All the creek beds were dry and the falls was barely running, so a spring or summer trip would be better, but then be weary of filled creek beds you would have to cross over. Nice day hike! Pack your water!

Best hiked during or immediately after a good rain for waterfall to flow. Google directions are accurate to site. Parking across from marked trail head. Trail is obvious with purple markers on trees and rocks. Steady decline from trailhead. Nice forest trail. Not strenuous. If youre going to see waterfall and creek bed is dry or not flowing then waterfall will be too. Better waterfalls in area.
