The trail was beautiful but the wooden walkways need repaired. The planks have uneven gaps widely spaced apart. I think the area was the old mill on the way to the falls. My dogs leg went through the planks and she needed stitches. Also the trail wasn’t marked very well. Drove around and around looking for the trail.

It is an excellent trail up to horseshoe falls. My purpose was to photograph the falls; and they were stunning.

Perfect hike for me and my 12 year old nephew. We connected this hike with the Cove and Peninsula trails for a round trip of nearly 3.5 miles. Highly recommend extending to the Peninsula Trail, as there are some really nice views of the lake. There is also a fantastic little nature center right down the road, and Pioneer Village is right next door.

Beautiful, very easy trail that takes you to a creek with a waterfall. It’s fun to wade in, maybe only three feet at the deepest. Definitely would make a cute picnic place.

So, to find the trail on park maps, it's called the Wellman Trail, not Horseshoe Falls and and the trail head runs off the Wellman Meadows Group Camp. Overall, the trail is a nice little walk, quite a bit of poison ivy though, so need to keep an eye out if you are allergic to it. The creek bed and falls are nice, not too big, but worth the short hike.

1.8 mile round trip with a 9-year-old and 5 year old twins. Just enough terrain and turns to be interesting to them, as were the color-coded trail markers. The creek and falls were made for kids to play in/around (supervised, of course), also the swinging bridge. Only downside: lots of trail mud.

Nice family friendly trail that is easy enough even if you have small children. Our family had a great time hiking the trails and then reaching the falls and cliffs. There are lots of rocks out in the creek and the kids had a great time skipping across them to get to the other side. The falls were nice, not really big so don't set your expectations too high, but still a nice feature at the end of the trail. There are lots of other nice trails in the area too, the entrance to this location basically allowed you to go on one of three or four trails. We are looking forward to tackling the others as well.

Beautiful hike! Quiet, not too crowded, easy enough to do while wearing a 9 month old. Will definitely be back!
