trail has been built up a lot for more traffic, short and a lot of people at the site. A "just ok" hike

Very dry, still pretty but definitely better after a hard rain. Lots of broken glass and empty beer cans. would consider going again as we love waterfalls but will try others first.

Most of the smaller waterfalls seemed to be dried up but the main waterfall is active. The trail is not marked very well but you can make up your own path as you go. Nice hike/walk

HikingGreat!

Firstly... if you're coming from out of town DO NOT ignore the signs that say not to jump off the falls. People have ACTUALLY died jumping off of them. Theres a sink whole somewhere under there and you can get sucked under and drown. okay now... I live 3 minutes from the park and have grown up here. The park has always been fairly well kept but you still get the out of towners that trash the place. Its not ideal for biking. You can rent a gazebo for family gatherings. Recommend a respectable visit

this is a short trail, and very shaded. not buggy, but wouldn't hurt to have bug spray with how wooded it is. the views are fantastic. parts of the trail are narrow, so bring a mask for social distancing if its crowded. also bring water shoes and walk the creek.

Great for kids. Very nice view of the waterfall. Plenty of opportunities to get your feet wet in the creek. The MURDER CREEK!

It was a great little hike; easy for all skill and fitness levels. Narrow in some spots and weekends tend to attract more people so it can get crowded .. still a great walk

It was a very easy/short trail. There was an officer at the “do not cross” signs handing out citations to a dozen people. The trees have eyes lol 3 stars only for being a short trail.

Ok. Short and not very exciting but a nice waterfall. Looked like a good swimming hole but there’s signs telling you not to swim. People were doing it anyway.
