Gorgeous in the winter with all the icing. Very easy leisure stroll, not at all difficult.

easy trail. We went when in January. Ice on the falls were beautiful!

We took a 12 year old, a 6 year old, and a 4 year old. The trails were slick and even icy in some spots but the kids had a blast.

Me, my husband, and our 7 month old hiked this today. It was perfect weather for it. We thoroughly enjoyed our hike. The river was gorgeous. There was still substantial tree damage in some areas, but it didn’t detract from the hike. I would recommend this hike and would love to come back in summer so we could venture out in the water. Beautiful falls! We saved Muddy Falls for last and made the loop from The upper and lower falls and Tolliver falls and around.

Loved it. It's like walking through something out of a story book. Lots of waterfalls to see and super kid friendly. We took our little one in a pack. Went on the weekend, was not even too crowded. Very family fun trail!

A lot of good spots to take it in scenery. Taking your boots off putting your feet in the water the is a must.

Cozy spongy soil. Great for a barefoot hike (once you're about an eighth of a mile in) or a swim. Swam here as a kid. Great time!
