It was 30° today and the trail was mostly empty. Very nice short walk with great views of the falls. Definitely a must see.

was good said there's an orange trail didn't see markers. there are other trails that are unmarked. unless the orange trail is marked with orange tape down the embankment. I don't recommend doing any steep descents with how soft and clay like the ground is right now.

Stunning hike!! Went by myself around noon during the week and saw just a few other people. Was muddy and slippery but a little caution and it was still a great hike with gorgeous views of the waterfalls.

it was a great hike. normally I'm afraid to go alone but there was other people on the trail, not to close but I knew they were there. I kinda didn't k ow where to go at some point because the markers are blue but I ran into red ones but I found my way. Was a fantastic hike for my first time alone

The Blue Trail is well maintained. Some parts of the Yellow Trail/Highland Loop are pretty overgrown, but that trail is generally in good shape also.

Great trail - happily found 4 waterfalls! My dogs loved it when we got to the bottoms and they could cool off! There are many exposed tree roots on the red trail - saw a lady literally carrying a stroller. Today was perfect - but I can see how it could get muddy and slippery during the wet season. If you love waterfalls this is a must do!

Nice rainy day for a stroll in the woods! Gravel pathway to the waterfall thought it would be a good day to see the waterfall in full bloom considering the rain. A little baggie and a little muddy spots but definitely doable.
