Nice trail. Not too busy. Some parts of the trail are closed for the season, but still good views of the waterfalls.

Beautiful trail, but alongside the road more than we would have liked.

The trail was absolutely gorgeous on a sunny November SUNDAY. It is a moderate hike, and the views help especially when it comes to the stairs. the bridge was open when our group hiked through. If you are sun sensitive, definitely bring an umbrella- because there were no leaves on the trees the sun was quite intense and hot even though it was a fall day.

. Got there at 0800 parking lot was filling up from the upper falls area. I recommend parking your vehicle and hiking the trails down to see the other falls and beautiful foliage.
