Very nice short walk! Some hippie weirdo was marking peace signs in the ground but then I saw him litter like two minutes later.....practice what you preach pal!

Lots of slippery leaves. Avoid if icy! Otherwise lovely gorge and scenery with good elevation.

Although this is a very short little hike, it is really beautiful and the gorge is rejuvenating, making it one of my favorite mental health walks in our area when I don’t have much time.

HikingGreat!

gorgeous little Gorge! short but sweet and the gorge itself is very beautiful. lots of interesting moss and mushrooms. I don't know if I would call it an easy hike just because it is not accessible to people with mobility issues but not hard otherwise. I stopped a lot to take pictures and climbed down into the bottom of the Gorge so it took me about 45 minutes to an hour but if you're just walking along I'd say probably 20-25 minutes.

Easy little hike in area that is well maintained. Lots of people (been there 3 times, always a handful of people). Check the stumps as people often leave notes.

Great trail! Nice and easy in and out. Lots of things to look at and picture taking opportunities. Took us about 20/25 minutes with two kids.

This is a short and relaxing trail with beautiful rushing waster, and the gorge cascades. There are a variety of areas off the main trail to relax in the rocks and enjoy the singing water. My dog Wilma loved it, as have my dogs Shadow and Buster previously. Great place for kids too! www.adventuresofshadowandwilma.com

Call short trail, worth a stop, but not particularly I inspiring. I guess gorges in the east are not as grand as gorges out west—it’s really more of a gully than a gorge. That said, there were a few spots that made for some nice photos, especially if you follow the suggested arrows and do the loop counterclockwise.

very beautiful and just the right length for a quick outting! We had no problems with bugs either, even without bug spray since there isn't much stagnant water for them to grow. The paths can be steep and a little rocky though so make sure to watch your footing! :)

This is a wonderful place for all ages. The length of the trail makes it easy however the rocks and roots make it tricky. I recommend good strudy shoes with traction. The best part for my 8 year old Grandson and I was the beautiful in exploring the river along the walk. Slowing down to see through the eyes of a child. this path offers it all for building courage and self-esteem in beginner hikers or youth. It is a respite and a great play date especially if you are limited for time.

Love this place for a quick forest bath or to sling a hammock and stay a while. So much beautiful distraction for a hectic mind.

Small Place but really nice. It was actually a little bigger than I expected. You can stop at the top and look or you can hike a bit further down and there are a couple bridges to crossover the further down you go.
