Great hike with unique vegetation and gorgeous views. I started off by going down to the lower falls and was pleasantly surprised. It’s less than a half mile down, and has a cool watering hole at the base of the falls. Looking forward to coming back in the summer months. Then I headed up to the upper falls. The trail is well marked and easy for most of the journey. The only reason this trail is marked as medium difficulty is because of the last quarter mile or so. In order to get to the upper falls you have to do a little bit of work and deal with lots of rocks and a bit of mud. Well worth it but you have to go to the top of the falls in order to take advantage of all of your hard work. It was a warm fall day and I only saw few other people on the trail to the upper falls but I can see it getting crowded during peak season because it is so accessible from the parkway.

Nice hike. Pretty heavily used and the erosion and changes in the path are significant....otherwise it would have rated it higher. Upper falls are a good payoff.

Nice views. We went while it was super overcast and foggy so not too crowded!

This trail connects with other trails making it a fun choose your path game. Great in the fall if you want to see the leaves.

Was a good trail, once, now very heavily eroded and worse is the smell of dog poop even in the windy conditions and the constant yipping of dogs resounding through the valley. Not every dog yips but only one is needed.
