Trail was muddy but to be expected in spring (and after some rain this week) but was worth the stair workout. Crossing the river and viewing from other side is worth it just for the bridge over water in itself. Hoping to come back in fall.

beautifully well marked trail. Gorgeous views of the Baptism River and The High Falls. YakTraks or some other shoe grip device is definitley needed to get to these views. on the trail I saw 3 other people the whole trip so definitely a spit of seclusion of that's what you seek.

Nice moderate trail. Pretty muddy yesterday from the recent rain. Would do again. Bring a towel if you got a dog!

Great trail for a day outdoors. Lots of lookouts to stop for breaks, very deserted. We didn’t see anyone the whole time. Entered at the back of the park and looped around.

One of the most beautiful water falls I have ever seen are the high falls. Cross the bridge and go down to the river for the best view of the waterfall.

It was a great trail! This park is great to begin with, there were some stairs but the views the whole time were so pretty and it’s not far from the other waterfalls! Bring some water and a snack to enjoy the flask when you get there ! Highly would recommend!

Great trail, went to High Falls. Heard some thunder on the way there and probably should have made our way back to the car. Hiked the 1.5 miles back to the Visitors Center in a thunderstorm. A little scary! But trail and falls were great when it wasn’t pouring rain!

So many stairs! But so many beautiful views!! We went to two step falls first, and then did high falls. You can go across a bridge to the bottom of high falls and swim if you’d like. Well marked trail. Lots of shade.

Mostly pretty good. The High Falls is awesome. Lookouts were somewhat disappointing. I don't know if the DNR trims foliage to maintain views or not. If they do, they need to get to work. If they don't, I recommend getting to the Lake Superior and Papasay Ridge lookouts before they're completely overgrown.

Beautiful, easy trail. A decent amount of steps (stairs) throughout. The falls are lovely and there are plenty of opportunities to take a dip in the water during summertime!

It is a nice trail but was very muddy. So avoid if there has been rain in recent past. The high falls at the end is ok.

Lots of snow still (3/22) and the sun made the trail and river shine! The waterfalls were flowing and beautifully noisy. Deep snow and ice was easily manageable with yak tracks.

Trail was great, really deep snow but we had snowshoes on so it wasn’t a problem as long as you stay in trail. The waterfall was beautiful and the swinging bridge is fun. We didn’t have time to make it all the way to two falls. I’d like to come back and do that or see the hike in the summer

Beautiful falls at the end of an easy, well-paved trail. To enjoy the full experience make sure to cross the hanging bridge and follow the trail to the bottom of High Falls

Beautiful trail with varying elevations. Take the steep stairs (there had to be 75+ stairs) down to the river before the falls. Very quiet, which I assume not many trek down because of these stairs. We had the river to ourselves for the entire time. On the way back up you’ll get a good leg workout! We did this after exploring High Falls.

Awesome falls, cool swinging bridge and nice elevation changes make for a good hour long hike.

Great waterfall views at both top and bottom of the waterfall. Nice easy hike in with a great path. Cool Old suspension bridge you can cross and the falls have multiple view points to see down the river.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed every bit of it! Extremely beautiful!

Not too difficult. Hiked easily with my 2 month old in a carrier and my 7 year old handled it well. Beautiful views of the river and falls.
