Great trail! There are couple of steep-ish hills up and down, but nothing too bad. Muddy and still some snow on the south side. The waterfalls are pretty this time of year!

Started on the north side trail and the way up was steep. The north side is pretty clear while the south side still has some snow at various parts. Also, the south side was quite muddy. I thought the north side provided the best views of the gorge.

Absolutely gorgeous day and gorgeous trail. There were some downed trees but nothing too crazy. The trail itself was packed down a bit. However, I encourage snowshoes, because I didn’t have any a sank a number of times which definitely added a challenge. Dog friendly! You will definitely see plenty of snow mobile-ers but doesn’t really impact the trail. I went counter clockwise and the end of the north trail was the biggest challenge as it was barely packed down and there were a lot of branches. My phone died halfway through due to the cold but it is very well marked. Definitely will go again!

Easy to hike with some spikes and ankle gaiters! Snow is soft but compact, nothing is icy. Beautiful views and snow covered trees everywhere! Some high ledges, so be cautious with animals and smaller kids. Great workout, would come back again.

Great trail in a very scenic woodland. We definitely had a good workout. They few inches of snow was mostly packed though soft in some places.

Amazing December hike. Really brings out the scenery but the trail is a bit harder to hike with the snow. Still a great winter trail.

I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a bit more of a workout involved in their time outdoors - there was a nice healthy dose of steeper inclines here. I personally got a little confused a couple times when you had to cross a couple of the creeks but the recording feature on this app got me back on track haha - enjoy!

Steep start/finish from the main parking lot. Lots of roots but beautiful views! We took the south rim trail up, detoured to the lookout and came back on the north rim.

This trail was excellent with some gorgeous views. It was longer than expected. The description said the trail was a 5 mile length, however doing the north and south trail Loop together was a total of 6.74 miles! We did it in 3 hours with some stops along the way.

was extra rooty, very narrow. I only gave a 2 because I was expecting a family friendly trail that you could bring a toddler on. I rate the trail a 5 on a no kids clause.

A nice trail that is pretty well marked, take the North rim then down the south. Some steep areas but many different types of habitat to enjoy. There is a small sign to picnic area (aka parking) to the right before a very steep decent to a viewing platform.

Awesome hike. Easy to follow. A few tough climbs. A moderate hike with plenty of different terrain. Lots of roots. Some nice views along the way. No bugs.
