Two pretty waterfalls. Steep hike but worth it! Not too hard since it is a short trail.

Nice workout in the hike back up from the falls. Nice pool to soak in at Glen Marie Falls.

Very narrow in places, watch your footing. Coming out is definitely a workout.

If you're in Blowing Rock and don't want to explore elsewhere for a hike then this one will have to do. There are many more nice hikes in the area. To many downed trees and debris in the creek to call this a beautiful hike and waterfalls. Good exercise coming back up the trail but that's about it.

VERY narrow trail. If it's crowded, expect it to go slowly. It's tough to bring a dog as well. We did, and not all people like dogs, some are afraid and other dogs aren't always friendly. Very challenging to pass on the trail.

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!
