Loved this trail! But most of all I really enjoyed the Falls. One even though it was breathtaking cold, loved playing around in it with the kids.

Easy trail with several waterfalls along the route. You have not made it to Van Hook Falls until you pass 2 bridges and a bench.

Great hike in mid-April! Got to hike next to a series of small waterfalls and then ended up at Vanhook Falls, which was very neat. A fairly easy hike, but if it rains, the trail may be more difficult. One person would have to cross small streams if it is wet and rainy. I was kinda confused at which trailhead lead to the falls, but figure out that the Vanhook Falls trail is across the road from the parking lot. Good couple hour hike.

Lots of waterfalls, stray dogs by falls that were not friendly had to beat one with a stick, also some shady people in area. Overall a good hike for waterfall lovers.

Absolutely loved it. I have hiked it twice now. However, if it has rained, be prepared to get soaked. A lot of creek crossings.
