Very pretty waterfalls. Highly recommend it. I would say this trail is moderate and strenuous going back up.

Fantastic hike with great falls. Trail is hard to find (not well marked). Entrance is off the picnic area.

excellent adventure. beautiful water falls. we hiked down from the Hebron Falls sign to the bottom of the falls and climbed the boulders back up to the top. some of the rock climbing can be slippery and there are several dangerous spots if caution isn't used. but totally manageable and remarkably beautiful.

Very nice moderate hike. The falls are beautiful. Wear correct footwear, areas are slippery and trail can be very muddy after rain. Great outing to pack a lunch and carry it on your back.

Fun rock climbing experience for sure. Wouldn’t recommend taking dogs, they may slip and fall easily. Make sure you wear shoes with good grip. Would be really fun to do when it’s warm outside.

Very muddy right now, wear shoes you don’t mind getting dirty and have nonslip soles. Very pretty, even though most colorful leaves have fallen.

This is one of my favorite all time hikes. Easy to moderate hike and once you get to the rocks it’s really beautiful.

This is actually part of the Boone Fork Loop trail. Located just off the BRPKWY across from Julian Price Lake. There is plenty of parking and picnic areas. There are bathrooms right next to the parking lot. You can either hike out and back to Hebron Rocks or continue past them and do the full loop. The trail was fairly level and had lots of different scenic points along the way. Hebron Rocks is a large, beautiful outcropping with waterfalls. We just hiked out and back. Took about 3 hours. Would definitely go again.

It was too fun to rock jump up to the top and sit under a rock with a waterfall right beside us. My dog loved it! Great workout.

just a heads up to those going counter clockwise on the Boone fork loop... do NOT cross the new large metal bridge. That takes you onto the MST (mountains to sea trail) and johns river rd to the parkway. there aren't any falls that way! instead, look on rocks for trail arrows to the left of the bridge.

Enjoyed hiking to the falls today. The trail was very well maintained though a little muddy in spots. The hardest part of the trail was the hike down to the falls and back. We stopped several times on the way to the falls to play on the rocks and to enjoy the scenery. I would recommend doing this hike in the morning if you like a quiet hike. We began our hike around 9:30/10 with very little traffic. The traffic on the trail picked up quite a bit around noon (surprised about this since it's Thursday).

When you arrive at the Destination (parking lot) provided by AllTrails, look for directions to Boone Fork Trail. Hebron falls is a part of the Boone Fork Trail, you won't find separate markers. Although this is a moderate to easy trail in parts, recent rain made for a very muddy hike for us. The trail was slippery in parts and we made good use of our hiking sticks. The Hebron waterfalls are picturesque,the perfect spot for selfies. Be sure to pack water and snacks. It's a good 4 miles in all and your crew is bound to get hungry by the time you are done.

We loved our hike to Hebron Falls. The scenery was incredible and hopping from rock to rock was so much fun. An experience unlike any other.

This is a great trail! It is part of the Boone Fork Trail - it just doesn't make the entire loop. The waterfall at the end is fantastic. A little muddy today since it rained pretty hard yesterday.

Somewhat muddy, but a great walk with water all along the way. Well worth doing!

One of my favorite places in the high country! Great for spending an afternoon exploring the boulders and cooling off in the river. Pretty easy to get to from the trail entrance at Price Park as well.

1st 3/4 mile pretty flat. Took a while to get excited. From that point it was great. Good rocks and water. Nice scenery.

Had a great time exploring and seeing the different aspects of the trail. Some of the trails do get muddy, so be prepared. Other than that we had a great time.
