Easy hike with some small changes in elevation, but otherwise it's pretty level. I hiked here in October with friends when the leaves were changing. The gorge was awesome- we went off the path a little bit to get a better view! I'd only suggest crossing the river when the water level is low like it was in October.

Great place to go hiking

Surprisingly fun for an "easy" trail. Climbing up roots and rocks and step-stoning over streams gave it the deep woods feel and the views and waterfalls were a bonus. Definitely up for a second trek.

It was this trail that initially got me into hiking. Having hiked in the rocky mountains, italian alps, austrian alps, swiss alps, the adirondack high peaks, and blue ridge mountains since then this trail although a bit less dramatic is none the less a trail of suprises and breathtaking sights.

Great hike. Moderate hike don't miss the waterfall trail. Very dry Bc of drought, however still a site to see and a nice incline to hike. Well marked trail.

Fabulous hike in the woods - lovely outlook and view of ravine. Went early in the morning - what a great start to the day.

Easy-ish

This is an easy walk between the woods. There are not open spaces. There's no water and no maps. The entrance closes at 5:00pm

Nice easy out and back. Shaded the entire way. Pretty walk along the river and out to the reservoir. Good for young kids. Probably great in the spring when water is really running.
