HikingGreat!Muddy

We'd intended to hike Indian Creek trail but due to storms the night before, water levels at the trailhead off Flinchum Rd were pretty high & moving quickly. So we drove to the Visitors Center & came down from the parking lot past the waterfalls (before the crowds got there) to access it from that direction. All the water crossings were up however we managed them without getting too wet. Beautiful morning before things clouded up around 1pm & the rains started. Great time!

I havejust started back hiking after several years. Easter Sunday, so it was busy. The steps will give a good workout, but the falls are well worth the effort.

Nice shorter trail to complete after Hanging Rock trail. The falls were beautiful. Pretty strenuous coming back up the rock steps back to the parking lot.

HikingGreat!Muddy

Always a favorite trail! It was slightly muddy at points - having rained incessantly for a few days straight. The path is nicely done - though re-rocked. So, beware that the path stones haven't settled all the way yet and it's harder on your ankles. I like going all the way down to Window Falls Trail first - also enjoying the rock out cropping just before the last set of stairs - and then stopping at Hidden Falls on the way back up. Stopping here breaks up the continuous incline on your return to the parking lot. You'll get your heart pumping but won't feel worn out. This is a great trail for dogs and active families. It does get busy on pretty days and - as of late - the parking lots are filling up quickly when it's warmer and especially on a weekend.

HikingGreat!

I could not believe how many people were not looking for the window...such a great view of the mouth of the fall thru that window. There are several views of the falls few people are seeing...look from all angles..so much beauty here.

nice, quick, short little hike. it's a little on the steep side coming out. cute waterfalls. be careful, it's slick near the falls. at window falls, definitely peek thru the window! there is more of the falls that you won't see otherwise.

I think it had rained recently, so the waterfalls were pretty full!
