This route on the app says it's easy. The upper part of the loop ends up being the extended HARD hike. It was shocking to say the least but so much fricking fun!!! The upper loop was not for the faint at heart. :)

Easy trail, good for novice hikers and the falls are a great break before heading back.

Take the high trail for a bit more of a challenge. This also connects to the Catoctin Trail and campground trail.

It was a good trail, but very crowded. Nice loop options. Was a good walk. The waterfall was beautiful!
