HikingGreat!

Nice easy trail to hike. Falls are a bit disappointing due to low water levels but still a good spot to visit. Can easily walk out on rocks of falls for good views.

Short version from the Jeep road. Nice walk to and along the Moose River. Turn left at the picnic area and continue to the plaque at Harry’s Point.

did this trail yesterday 5/4/20. while the trail was well kept and easy to fallow. even with bug spray the black flies were out in force. the river was nice but really wouldn't call it a waterfall. not a trail i would go back to...

I loved this trail simply because of where it ended up at! The water was gorgeous and there are some cute picnic sites. The bugs are absolutely horrific right now. I highly recommend bringing your bug spray with you to respray and a net for your hat if you have one. The trail itself ends at Harry's point but if you're feeling adventurous, keep following along the river for some sandy spots and awesome rocks. (highly recommend pants and more bug spray for this part too).

The “falls” is actually a small rapid lol. I mean it was an okay walk, it was mostly a snowmobile trial but was disappointed when we got to the “falls”.

The hike itself wasn’t bad. However, there are no falls. Take lots of bug spray!

Nice hike. However didn't see any falls. We hiked the whole trail. beautiful river but no falls to be found. We were disappointed. Very buggy be sure to carry deep woods bug spray so you can reapply periodically.

This is accurately listed as an easy hike! The trail is basically a logging/tractor path through the woods, not rocky or muddy at all and mostly flat. The falls area is very nice and you can hang out on the rocks in the river to feel up close and personal with the waterfall (more like a river rapids section the day i was there).

We enjoyed our day. Trail isn't very exciting. But it was a great day to spend with my family none the less. I would recommend it for a family home that isn't to hard. But that's about it.

First to Review

I didn't care to much for the over grown grass on the trail. once we broke away from that to go on to another trail it was fine. The water we took a break at and took pics, it was very pretty. We did 10 miles here. I had 3 kids and 2 dogs with me, pretty easy trail.
