After a little bit of difficulty finding the trailhead (the initial entrance on the "unnamed road") can be easy to miss, my aunt and I thoroughly enjoyed this area. We didn't hike much of the trail, but did walk in and enjoy the falls near the trail head and also explored the falls that are on the left hand side of the bridge before turning off the trail. The part that we did hike, had a lot of roots and was a little soft and slick in places, so you needed to pay close attention to footing. But I think you can hike as little or as much of the trail as you want and you'll enjoy it. On the humid day we went, a number of people were swimming and the stream and woods kept things cool.

Nice hike that is definitely moderate. At one point, you can choose to follow the Creek or take the high ground. If you have a dog w you, take the high ground. The falls are beautiful at the top but there not much scenery along the way.

Excellent short hike to the upper falls. They are beautiful in the spring! The trail was a bit muddy, but not too bad. The black slab at the upper falls is really cool. Bring your insect repellent!

Good hike. Almost 3 miles from the paved road, could have driven another 3/4 mile, to the Upper Falls. Nice campsite below the trail by the stream about halfway up.

A short little trail with lots of beauty. The woods and the water make it a joy.
