Excellent trail. Parked at the southwest corner of the trail around 9 am. Just a few cars. When we got back around noon the entire parking lot was madness! Get here early!

The beginning and end were great, but the 2 mile hike in between was just okay.

Awesome hike on a day where it rained for 12 hours before the hike. The waterfall were very impressive and they were everywhere. Trail was not too muddy and passable down to Cedar Falls even with the heavy rains.

This is just Grandma Gatewood minus Ash Cave Trail. We set out to do the entire thing this time, but it was muddy and slippery in spots, so we tired out and decided to complete Ash Cave, which we saw last time.

This is still one of my most favorite trails. It's so much fun and a great work out with the most amazing views. I love Cedar Falls. They are beautiful this time of year.

Absolutely beautiful! The sandstone is an amazing sight to see! Bird watching can be difficult, as for the hemlocks are very tall and hard to see the smaller birds.

Beautiful hike. Multiple waterfalls, a lake, and loops the entire way so you don't have to see the same thing twice.

A recommendation from a neighbor. Beautiful during July, just rained so the trails were a bit slippery from mud. Walked 7.5 miles in flip-flops, but stayed on the marked trails. A lot of the points of interest can be driven to with short to semi short trail walking if you have people with you that can't hike long distances. My husband, dog, and I will be back!

One of the best trails in Ohio. hiked with my girlfriend after setting up camp in the park. A mostly easy trail, but can be semi-challenging at times, depending on conditions. Connects to other trails to be as challenging or easy as you desire. Either way, great views the entire trip!
