Hard trail. Downhill from the Table Rock road and 1430 elevation on the way back up. I went out and back for 6.67 miles. I ran down but had to walk a good portion back up. Beautiful and worth it.

Very difficult trail but awesome experience. Me and my wife are in very good shape but it was challenging. Waterfalls are really nice.

Beautiful. A bit challenging of a hike but well worth it when you get to the falls.
