Great trail to the waterfall but was tough on our older beagle. Three mini dachshunds made it with a few water breaks and being carried over some of the creek,

Nice trail, marked well and maintained. Not much water at the falls last weekend!

There are several other trails near this trail, give Wildcat Rock trail a try, waterfall along the way to the summit with a beautiful view.

This is a well maintained trail. Great vistas through the trees all along the way. On the harder side of moderate, but easily done with short rests. Waterfall is amazing!

We had a nice family hike with kids ages 2, 6, and 9. The 2 year old was carried the last 1/4 of the way, but was able to hold his own through most of the hike. The small pool at the bottom of the giant rock was fun and safe for the kids to splash in. Would do it again.

Nice little trail. The bearwallow falls at the end is real cool. Thank goodness we had some rain prior to our hike or I think the falls would have had little or no water.

30 minutes up, the "fall" is a small trickle even too far away to feel any spray :-/ 30 minutes back
