This trail is an easy walk to the falls which are pretty and easily accessible. I gave this trail 3 stars ONLY because of the large number of people and children present. There were so many children and parents in the water at the bottom of the falls that is was difficult to get pictures without people in them. For me, it would be a great December walk to some nice falls.

Pleasant and relatively easy walk to the falls. It gets a bit steep for a few feet just before arriving at the falls, but there is a great and easy to access viewing area before that.

Super easy hike to the waterfalls. The trail is graded with rock. My 93-year-old grandmother made it there is no problem. There are some small areas for kids to splash around in the nude deeper than ankle depth. All in all a beautiful souls it easy hike for everyone.

Very easy walk to a beautiful waterfall! Wasn’t very relaxing as there were quite a few people and screaming children there. Don’t forget to check out the old mica mine!

Very easy hike, pretty falls, but take the time to continue on to the trail on the right to find some smaller falls that are actually prettier than the first. I found lots of places where a child could enjoy playing in the water, or a child at heart.

Quick hike to a large waterfall, great place to take a family. There is also a small cave on the other side of the water at the falls!

Easy walk up to a pretty waterfall. We went off to the left to look for the mine. That made it even better for us.

Loved this! Very doable even for people who are out of shape aka me

Wide path for pups and others to pass

The falls were really cool and peaceful

It was a cold day so for us this distance was perfect!

A very pretty little trail with a gorgeous waterfall. Good for kids and those who want to get out in nature but aren't looking to hike very far.

Great family hike my four year old and my ten year old both enjoyed it. Easy to get to. Only negative was some litter on the trail due to the easy access.

Pretty falls and great place to play in water. Would consider this to be a walking trail rather than a hike. Non strenuous to say the least.

Short, easy walk on a wide trail. Follows a small river up to a pretty water fall. My kids always look forward to places to swim. Most of the river is very shallow, just mud in some places. But, you can walk right up to the water fall. The water beneath is shallow and perfect for small kids and pets to wade in. There is also places for camping. This a great hike for kids or campers, not long enough for a full day.

pretty waterfall, lots of work going on with the trail currently. makes for a fairly ugly hike in with all of the cut and fallen trees and brush.

Very short trail. Not much of a hike, more of a nice site. There is a higher back trail to hike up the side of the waterfall though. Also, looking to the left of the waterfall, there is an old Mica mine to explore.
