Definitely not a hike but a trail for walking to the falls. Worth it regardless, absolutely beautiful and even better in the fall.

Beautiful 3.2 mile loop trail on the North Rim (yellow) . West branch (red) trail was closed.

Can be kind of tough with a wagon or stroller. The 2 times I've gone I've left them at the top of the stairway to view the falls. wish there was a better play area though swings and teeter totters are classic fun. But over all, it's just beautiful any time of year. Great for a short dog walk as well.

Perfect walk for our family with young kids. View of the falls was perfect and the facilities (picnic area, bathrooms etc) were nice, clean and well kept.

To call this hiking is a stretch, but the very short trails lead to amazing falls. Jump the rail at the end of the trail and walk on down to get up close and personal!

The main gate to the park is still closed in the middle of March, but you can park your car outside and walk into the park. The trail is still icy (this year is particularly colder than usual), but there are hand rails on the short path to the fall, which makes it easily accessible. The view makes it worth it.

Easy trail, with multiple view of the waterfall. Park includes hiking trail away from the falls. Less trafficked. Beautiful scenery.

Walked the lower falls and the blue trail with a 5yr old, 3yr old, and 9 month old in a carrier. Easy and clean trails!

We wanted to do a winter hike and we had never been here before. the trails were moderately trafficked. you could clearly see the trails with amount of snow (6inches). recommended for families and pets. the waterfall was beautiful with the ice over lapping. very quiet relaxing walk (unless you lose your phone in the snow!!! oops!!! had to go back through the loop and find it haha. ) over all I love this walk and we plan on going back in the spring. we used this for hiking and film photography and loved it.

We visited this trail and falls during the fall foliage... Nothing more beautiful.. Even the 1980 Trans am was not.. This is awesome. A must see place to go.

Nice little falls. Great grounds. Picnic areas, bathrooms and walking trails. Trail gets close to the falls. Signs state they do not want you to go down to falls or in gorge. Views of falls from several spots.

Pretty but it is over too quickly!

The trails that are there are mostly someone's back yard or the side of the road. But the falls are nice.

The falls are very nice to see but if you are looking for a longer hike this isn't a good choice. Took about two minutes to get to the falls.
