Easy to hike. I've also, added the Connector trail to the Stanford Trail to make this a longer hike (this part isn't heavy in traffic). This would push the level of difficulty due to the hike's length, but not to moderate.

Great trail for a relaxing time. Only thing to beware of is there are a number of stairs to get down to the falls and back up!

Moderate? Who is ranking these trails? This is more like easy! It's a gorgeous easy trail that you can take your children on.

I'd say the trail is easy rather than moderate. The experience would be improved by actually not treating it as a loop and heading back at the bridge that crosses the stream (south, en route to the Sanford Trail). This cuts out most of the flat, paved (with a gravel section) portion of the hike. The boardwalk would be the starting point then (unless you want them as the highlight and to have a shorter hike).

A great trail, without question. Well maintained, great scenery, falls are wonderful, moderately challenging. But, it was very heavily traveled, especially around the falls.

Very easy nice scenic hike that we did with our 14 month old. Trail was well maintained and good for all skill levels. Be sure to go down to the lower deck and see the falls up close.
