Great short hike, some steep sections. Very rewarding waterfalls and nice view as well. Well marked trail, along the river

my wife and I would say it would be more towards moderate to hard for hiking if you have children 7 and under! the waterfall and view were spectacular extremely beautiful one of the best hikes was not as long as we expected it to be! just be very careful if you are bringing children 7 and under!

Second time we have done this trail. Absolutely beautiful views of the falls in multiple spots. It’s very steep very fast though. Once you get about 80% up it’s hard to find the rest of the trail

Great trial along the river and falls. Excellent spot to stop for lunch, etc. about .75 mile in. At the ~1 mile mark, it goes Up to the top of the falls. Great views but not a ton of space to lounge

With a dog it is difficult, couldn’t find the trail markers. I think most make it to the waterfall and back out.

Beautiful. Along the falls the entire hike. Straight up and challenging at some points but also plenty of faulty flat ground. Great hike and rewarding views!

Awesome hike with matching views along the river. If you have the time and energy, I strongly recommend continuing the hike to Harvard falls after reaching Georgiana falls. Very steep in some areas, but the trail is well marked.

Nice hike along the river and right next to the falls. On the app it says the trail continues farther up, however, after the second waterfall it was difficult to find the rest of the trail.

Absolutely beautiful but had to off trail a few times due to steep icy conditions on the upper portions of the trail. The falls are beautiful and the swimming holes will be great in the summer. Unless your Wim Hof. Then you’re good to go now.

Done this trail twice now, once in summer and once in winter. Great trail to do with my 5 year old and 1 1/2 year old in hiking back pack. A little tricky to get all the way to the top with kids because you do have to do some moderate climbing. We did it in summer, decided against it in winter. Also brought our dogs on leash. Takes about an hour.

Bring spikes in the winter. Super slippery.

Very nice trail. Snow covering made it difficult to follow the trail markers and many of the markers in challenging areas were not very visible.

Must have had a lot of rain falls were incredible. Hike was moderate some slippery spots. Met couple with kids using all trails as well. One of the better hikes we have done in past few years.

Great trail. Perfect day hike. When you get to the top look for a rock with a red dot. Cross the creek and you can get to the other side of the waterfall. Great spot on the rocks for lunch. Really quiet.

Great hike. Seemed longer to get up to the top of the falls than 1.25 miles. But it is an interesting trail. Beautiful fall hike.

We had the best time today on this hike. We just beat the holiday crowds and we had the waterfalls to ourselves until the descent. Great views from up top.
