It is an easy trail that is great for most kids (probably 5 and up), just need to be careful on the ledge of the gorge if taking the red trail. Has bathrooms in the parking lot. Mosquitoes can be rough around the area described as an amphibian breeding ground (makes sense since they eat them), just try to walk fast through there or spray yourself before. Saw a tiny snake but not much other wildlife.

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.

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.
