A quick hike in and out. Well marked/worn trail. A nice quiet walk in the woods.

Great hike, well marked but a very small trail. It was slightly difficult due to the incline. Well worth the trip to a beautiful waterfall. It looked as if nobody had hiked the trail in quite a while cause it was fairly overgrown, I needed a stick to guide back the shrubs. It made me worry about ticks off the brush. It had rained a lot so the brush got me pretty wet. I had cell reception the entire hike so that was good.

A little overgrown (check for ticks afterwards) but good payoff at the end with a beautiful atream running down a ravine and a couple small waterfalls.

Great trail with some nice views, in the Fall with few leaves left on the trees anyway. The multiple waterfalls were beautiful, particularly the larger one near the bottom. Some interesting rock features along the way. There were a couple spots along the trail that were hard due to the incline, but they were short in duration. We did end up with quite a few ticks on us, so definitely, as always, check when you are done.

Falls were dried up due to the lack of rain. It was still a great hike with some cool views. Definitely worth the trip.
