Stared in picnic area on Quarry loop to spur to Wolf Creek Trail. 4 miles round trip. Wolf Creek remains muddy at beginning and intermittent until get towards end. Beautiful hike and easy.

Trail from the campground is pretty muddy as the snow melts. If you're visiting soon (or just after winter), I highly recommend wearing waterproof boots (rain boots, muckboots, etc).

Neat trail that starts off with a wooded area, passes a slightly swampy area full of vocal frogs and toads, and then changes into a red pine forest. The trail gets rockier and much more scenic at that point. Take the trail down to the river and then over to the falls. We did this with our 3.5 year old and it was fine.

Great trail for 5 years and up. Not ideal for toddlers as there's some climbing. Fun,fairly easy trail.

You can only park in the picnic area so you will need to take the Quarry Loop trail to Deadman's trail and then to the Wolf Creek Falls Trail to get to the falls. It's a little over 4 miles in and out.

Great and beautiful well cared for. But. The only place you're allowed to park is in one area so you cannot pick up the trails at any location but one area making it pretty long on some of these trails it would be more convenient for hikers if they could pick up the trails in multiple places

The trail is okay, the falls area is pretty cool. It's a super easy hike. Supposedly you can get to the lower hell's gate trail from here, but we couldn't find it.
