Some nice waterfalls via a short hike. Can get very crowded. If you continue down the trail from the falls, crowds will fall off and you'll find some solitude. Nice hike.

This was a great was to get into, or back into, hiking! The trail is well maintained and moderate to easy. the views are beautiful and well worth the effort in the climb/hike back up. The attendants at the visitor center were helpful and knowledgeable. A great way to spend an afternoon!

When combined with the Indian Creek Trail this makes for a decent hike. The waterfalls aren't that large but they're pretty. Indian Creek Trail has several water crossings.

I’d rate moderate as well, not as nice as the lower cascades is but glad we did it.

Coming back up can be quite steep. It’s an easy to moderate hike depending on experience, but the access to windows fall is easy to it form hidden falls. Window Falls has another smaller fall further up, but it’s a much steeper incline if you climb from the base to the side. Or you can also try climbing the rocks near the steps, but I wouldn’t recommend that if you’re just wearing regular shoes like I saw some people do.

A little deceiving, not a hard trail but steep on return so be prepared.

Not an easy trail. Lots of steps. Both waterfalls are pretty. The window is overgrown, not really much of a view. Well maintained.

Nice waterfalls, a little crowded even when there is just a couple groups present. Stairs can be a bit tough coming back, a lot of them and steep. The dogs loved the cool water.

I would not rate this as an easy trail. Very steep steps in some areas that are a killer on your knees.
