Beautiful trail

LOVE this hike and have done it several times. Wonderful in Spring when creek is running quickly with winter runoff. Cool, clear water and three waterfalls if you hike all the way to the top. Water significantly diminishes as summer goes on, drying up in the heat. Cool swimming spots at bottom of second and third falls. Some rope-assisted scrambling required between second and third falls. First and second falls greats for kiddos and dogs... would only recommend third falls for experienced hikers comfortable on a slippery slope and sure footed.

The trail is an easy hike but ends prior to the falls. A slightly more challenging hike awaits as you follow the edge of the creek to the bottom of the falls.

It’s has to one of the funnest trails I have taken lately. While it is easy during the summer and later spring, it was quite a challenge the second weekend in October. When I see easy, I expected a footpath or recognizable trail. There isn’t one here after the start. It is basically a walk up the creek. With cold water, wet leaves, mud, and moss growing on the rocks and logs it was an exciting and challenging hike! Highly recommend it. The first waterfall is great and the second is nice. But the real fun was trying to pick nice and safe places to cross the creek. Wet rocks covered by wet leaves are very slippery!! Be careful.

Nice trail, east for kids and adults alike. Bring water shoes-or prepare to have wet feet! Two beautiful falls, one about half way to the second and both are beautiful!

Beautiful short hike to a waterfall in a natural glen. Water was low on our visit so hiking boots were fine. Last 100 yards is along or in water. During higher water, water shoes would be a better choice.

Very nice walk back to the falls. Fortunately I read the reviews ahead of time so we knew to wear water shoes. We want to go back in the Fall when the leaves change. That’s a beautiful area in the Fall.

This place is amazing. I highly suggest water shoes. You will get wet and you will have to walk in the actual river bed. There are two falls to walk to and both can be climbed to the top with use of ropes. Very slippery and dangerous for small children. The second waterfall has a pool at the bottom of it where you can swim. This was such a fun hike and a great way to cool down. Bugs weren’t bad at all either. Will definitely be going again.

The trail looks like it has even washed away, so the creek is the trail. You will get wet. Wear closed toed shoes. Great for kids on a hot day!

The creek is the trail. It was a ton of fun! It’s easy, but you should take care as you walk over the rocks since some spots are deeper than they appear and the rocks can be slippery. I don’t have water shoes, but I did better in the creek than the slippery mud. There are two small trails up the sides of the waterfalls that you can climb up with the assistance of a rope. I didn’t climb them as I need shoes with more tread. I’ll definitely be coming back here with friends!

Super easy trail and the view from the falls was awesome, we ended up going down into the creek bank to access the falls because there was a spot of the trail that had washed out but it worked out for the best since we got great views!

Great waterfalls, bit crowded (popular during Memorial Day?) Recommend wearing waterproof shoes bc you will end up walking along the stream to reach both of the falls.

The hike to Upper Falls and Devils Bedroom was beautiful with red trilliums in bloom! The rope climb of the Upper Falls struck the fear of God and Satan into me.

Short hike to falls. Footing was a little precarious as we got closer to the falls. There was a nice area to sit and take in the sights and sounds. Peaceful.
