This trail was very EASY , extremely minimal elevation gain. Wear shoes that you wouldn't mind getting wet or muddy. You can climb down to the falls if you have decent shoes and balance. If you keep going past the falls on the trail, you will follow along a nice trail along the creek. There are a few areas where you climb over a fallen tree, or hop over a few stones in a creek. There was hardly anyone there when we went on a Tuesday. We parked across the street and that didn't add much time to the hike. Very beautiful and almost anyone could see the falls, although it is not a handicapped accessible trail due to roots, rocks, and some downhill/uphill.

We absolutely love this one! No signs are posted about it so make sure you go past the final bench at Blue Hen falls to start this hike. You will have to cross the water (simple bc there are rocks to walk across) a couple of times to get to Buttermilk Falls.

Only put 3 stars because I didn't think the actual hike part was interesting until you get to the end where you can climb down and see the creek and waterfall from the bottom. Easy though!
