TRAILHEAD IS ACROSS THE ROAD FROM PARKING AREA! Moderately challenging hike with lots of rock under foot... be sure to wear hiking shoes for this one. Peaceful, beautiful trail with delightful cascading falls at turnaround point. Really enjoyed this one!

The unstable footing on loose rocks makes it very challenging for senior hikers. A large tree across the path also was difficult to negotiate. For more agile hikers (almost everyone), it's a beautiful trail with a lovely waterfall at the top.

Great hike! We parked on Upper Cherrytown and followed the map on AllTrails to the falls. A good portion of the hike to the falls was uphill and was pretty difficult for me, but it was totally worth it! The only downside was that we ran into a group of 15-20 young kids at the falls, but it is summer so I guess that's bound to happen. The water was pretty freezing, but that didn't stop our dog from enjoying it!

Moderate to easy trail, would be easy but for some wet muddy spots and more then a few loose rocks. Widish trail with a steady rise. Saw lots of wild flowers but the real payoff is the falls,
well worth the hike! The mileage listed on the trailhead sign was a couple tenths of a mile off. It's closer to 2 miles one way but the multi step falls make it a good destination hike.

Not a lot of parking. Get to the trail early if you want to enjoy some quiet at the falls. The falls are beautiful.
