Trail was very easy with a couple moderate inclines. Kid and dog friendly. I went alone around dawn at 7am and only saw one other gentleman on the trail at this time. Got a bit crowded on my way back. Trail extends further to a lake. Great views of surrounding mountains through the trees and waterfall.

The trail description is very accurate. Our 4 year old hiked the entire trail by herself. The trail was fairly crowded (it's a holiday weekend), but it was still enjoyable. Great views and the waterfall was nice, with a narrow foot bridge to cross the creek below the falls.

Rocky trail to run on, but cool. At dawn alone bear spray makes for a good running buddy.

My favorite quick trail around Livingston! Always beautiful and if you go early not very crowded. We take the dogs here almost every morning early hike up to the falls (sometimes to the top which is worth the extra .5 mile) and then we run back down. There is plenty of water along the way for the dogs too.

Beautiful short hike in Paradise Valley. The Falls do not disappoint, at least early in the summer. Busy trail and we've never done it on a weekend!

A wonderful hike for all ages. Shaded for most of the way.

Easy except the rocks and stumps on trail. Beautiful waterfall. Worth the trip.

Really lovely trail for all kinds of hikers, and on a beautiful June Saturday it was fairly crowded. The falls are worth it - be sure to cross the bridge and take a few more steps because there is a second waterfall just to the right of the first, but hidden!

Worth the trek to the end! Sign reads 1 mile to Falls, but it is more like 2.

Hiked it today. The Forest Service was on the trail and cleaned up the 2 downed trees we ducked under on the way in. The creek and falls were beautiful with very high water volumes, but any minor crossings were safe and easy.
