The waterfall was beautiful (glad it was flowing). I added Inspiration Point and glad I did. Nice easy trail, few slippery spots because it started to rain, but WP shoes helped. Obviously poor cell service and AT did not record correct mileage and elevation gain.

Wet hike - you need to be super careful as it's slippery. It's easy and very well-marked, there are stairs that lead you down to the lower falls, and you can take a dip there in the pools. We did this on a Monday morning, and by the time we finished the parking lot was FULL (it was only 12 noon at this point). Highly recommended!

Good day hike that you can either be a quick or a longer venture.

Not sure about the .8 miles and only 150 feet elevation gain. I believe is .8 in and .8 out. Also the last section is a bunch of stairs making it quite a steep walk. No scrambling or anything of the sorts but the stairs can get tiresome

Pretty short but definitely a steep climb. If you are able, the hike down to the lower falls is a must. Absolutely beautiful. There was a short length of muddy and slippery trail. Close to the falls the trail turns into stairs. For a Saturday evening, the hike from this parking area was not too busy. If you’re hiking North Point/Sunset Rock, fit this into your trip!

Went early on a Thursday morning and were the only ones on the otherwise popular trail. Falls were nice after the recent rain.
