This was an easy, but beautiful little hike. The ground was soft, but not overly muddy. The trail seems to be well maintained, didn’t see one piece of garbage anywhere which was a breath of fresh air after seeing some of the trail conditions last summer.

Took orange trail pretty well marked. Some inclines with and without stairs. Still some slippery spots where a little wet.

Beautiful and peaceful little trail. I’d rate this Moderate — too steep and narrow at times to be Easy. Early April it was also super muddy and slippery. Love that this is just over a mile loop with a gorgeous waterfall. Minimal whining from the 8 and 9 year olds ;)

Bridge out

It's a beautiful trail that sometimes is narrow and steep all the way down to the gorge and then back up. It is definitely not a easy trail I would say its moderate but certainly doable and worthwhile. At the bottom of the gorge by the washed out bridge do not cross the bridge but bear right and go up the path to bring you back to the parking lot. Sunny days.

Easy going one way and a bit challenging coming up from the valley. Overall, very nice trails with adorable bridges.

Trails were good, easy to navigate, watch your step in certain areas, steep drop otherwise!

A bit hard to find where to start, but one I found it, the path was clear and the waterfalls were a very nice destination.

It's a beautiful hike, but I would definitely call this moderate instead of easy.

Most of the trail was easy to follow and marked by painted trees. There were some spots with connecting trails that were not clearly marked. There was a steady incline at the end that provided some good cardio.

Steep incline from bottom lot that zaps you - one great overlook - falls and streams - well marked - well maintained - baseball field at the top

Was a nice short trail, well marked, well maintained. Picnic are and restrooms available. Short waterfall at the end and a few views from an overlook. Worth the trip.

Hiking

The trail was nice and it was very quiet (didn’t see anyone the entire two hours we were there). It was a little confusing at times because the side trails weren’t clearly marked, so we ended up back-tracking a couple of times, but the trail was in good condition. I hiked it with a four year old and a seven year old - little challenging for them at times (especially up the last incline), but they agreed that it was fun and the views were gorgeous.

Didn’t exactly follow the trail but fairly close. A reasonably easy trail that does wind along steep drop offs for much of the hike.
