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.

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.

I think this trail is the trail to the High Falls from the trailhead lot. You can cross the River on metal swing bridge and get down below the falls. Nice!

Lots of stairs:). great trip to the waterfall. the hanging bridge is a photo spot and a swim upstream towards the falls is worth the walk.

great views once the hike is over.... muddy and visible water puddles along the way, so dress appropriately

Absolutely awesome. Nice mix of deep forest, higher elevation with views and lake/creek side stuff.

Really like this trail. A few tougher stretches along the way, but the views from the High Falls are definitely worth it!

Great scenery--falls are just as nice as Gooseberry but hiking is moderately harder. Trails are nice. Could use updated way finding as many signs are becoming hard to read. They are apparently doing trail maintenance and in those areas the trail was drier--other areas were very wet and muddy because of erosion and lack of gravel cover. Beautiful visitor center. Saw several bird species and amazing fungus and mushrooms everywhere. Be prepared to do a lot of ups and downs--lots of stairs. I saw folks hiking in tennis shoes but I was glad to have the ankle support of my heavy hiking boots.

Crowded, very crowded day on this trail. Otherwise great trail, tough at times. Didn't hike far, again, to crowded for me.
