Be prepared to get muddy. I'm glad we left our pug at the cabin. She could have walked most of it except towards the end going up and down steep paths but would have gotten very dirty. Saw a few deer along the way. Very shaded and serene.

This is a great trail! Highly suggest hiking to the falls and hiking up/down in the water. The boulders are huge and so beautiful! Just wear good non slip shoes.

Love this trail! Great ecosystems to enjoy , and several miles along the water. It was very muddy today and crowded, which was a challenge trying to distance.

Our family is just getting into hiking so we found this one challenging but fun! The trails were very muddy and flooded in some spots and a hiking stick would have been helpful but we really enjoyed it.

Love this hike! Can be made as easy or difficult as you like based on how you decide to maneuver the boulders. Might be a bit tricky to find if there are no cars on the shoulder, but definitely worth the effort! Plan to get wet...

Fun easy trail till the last 1/4 mile. There is a place to play in the river shortly after the bridge. When you come to the Hebron Falls sign it is a steep trail down to the creek then there is scramble up the huge boulders in the creek bed or a faint trail/scramble up the right side of the creek to the falls. There are a couple of pools by the falls to play/soak in. We then completed the loop vs. back tracking. It was a very nice trail that followed the creek then another for quite a while. More falls and cascades after Hebron, though not quite as large. Still fun to hike to the sound of water cascading down. Strava with a scramble to Hebron Falls put the loop at almost 6 miles. 1.4 miles to the sign and 1.6 to the actual falls.

Trail and scenery is probably great but with all the people it was impossible to enjoy. Certain areas at the falls were inaccessible due to inconsiderate people who wouldn't move. And this was on a Wednesday at 1000, not a holiday or weekend. The loud, large and obnoxious crowds ruined the hike. We were passed by a group of 27 other young adults, who you could hear coming from what seemed like a mile away. I guess we will have to return and try again around 0800 sometime and hope we can beat the Wednesday 10 AM rush.

Good time. 90% dense forest canopy, so cool on a hot day. Go left and do it “backwards”. Gives you some nice surprises after 2 miles. Not sure why the dog owners bring their pets with all the ladders....must be tough!

Terrific trail for just about anybody. Just a little up and down, creek crossings, bouldering, waterfalls, and vista. Very entertaining and not overcrowded. Will do again.

HikingGreat!MuddyRocky

This hike was a blast! The trail is flat and gravely until about 0.5 miles when the roots and rocks begin to appear. It’s a bit muddy right now. There are several side trails that take you down to the water and have their own small water formations. Hebron Falls is larger than I expected. The waters run over a “boulder field” that makes for fun climbing and maneuvering to get to the top. Just watch your step! I’d recommend good shoes with traction (especially after rain) if you wish to climb to the top of the rocks to see one of the larger falls.
