I went down easy but coming up was anything but. Granted if you're rolling slowly down, you will fair better coming up. I went down like Flo-Jo and came back up, slow. Needless to say, I was traveling with a 12-lb weight vest which added to the difficulty. I'd do it all again!

Fun quick hike right off Main St.

Very rocky and steep but definitely worth the pain. The falls are beautiful.

Incredibly beautiful trail with waterfalls and wildlife. The trail is a bit treacherous in places where there were exposed roots and muddy areas. My mom and I are beginners and the trail took us 2 1/2 hours. We were envious of others who had walking sticks and would recommend them to others. We saw deer, chipmunks, many birds, and lots of mosquitoes. We had a great time and plan to return.

The waterfalls are well with the hike, but make sure you go all the way down to Glen Marie falls.
