Not difficult, and the river is easy to cross if you're okay with getting a little wet. By the falls, the river is deep e ought to swim!

I was looking to get down to the waterfall and made it there safely, but I’m an experienced hiker and had difficulty in certain areas near the river. If you’re going, either stick to the path or wear good shoes and make sure you’re ready for the challenge!

This trail is very simple. You walk in thinking you’re on a bike path and then it lets you into an oasis. The chagrin river is beautiful and peaceful and the rock ledges you can sit on and marvel from are incredible. It gives nice opportunity to go off course and breathe too.

The first portion of this trail is beautiful and totally worth it. The second portion of this trail is just a walk in the woods. It is pretty but stick to the first loop.

Not for the novice hiker. Great challange! Go w/someone who has hiked this trail before. I thank God for All Trails and a good network because we would have still been trying to find our way. The trails are not marked & if you're not paying attention (or know where you're going) it's really easy to lose your trail. But that was the fun of it. I loved the challenge, it kept us on our toes the whole time! Really muddy so bring a change of shoes.

I love this trail and it is basically easy unless it has rained and then some of the stones or the mud can be very slippery, if you continue along the loop staying near the river you will come across a brick structure that I was told is an old pumping station. Also make sure to go to the front ( you may have to get your feet wet) of Squaw Rock, you will find an etching of the first capital building in Washington DC, as well as the name of at least one civil war infantryman named G.H.Plowman, I was trying to get more pictures but the dog was bored and wanted to get going. I uploaded the picture of the capital building and G.H.Plowmans name, google him, in the picture though I accidentally cut off he G

Great hike with our 6 year olds. Good variety of trail surfaces. But what are those brick structures in the second loop? Trying to find the answer online.

Nice to take advantage of the decent weather. Pretty muddy track but still fun.

Love this trail! Dramatic views of Chagrin River and small waterfall and the rock carvings any time of the year. Definitely a workout. Lots of steps/incline. Wooded sections of the trail not clearly marked. Popular trail, year round. FYI- Squaw Rock renamed Henry Church Rock and all the signage has been updated.

Beautiful scenery! Trail winds along the river and continues through wooded pine forests. Trail is somewhat rocky so take caution with pets and young children! We loved it!

Our favorite set of waterfalls. So beautiful. Easy parking. Steep rock steps but manageable. Definitely will go back.

Squaw rock carvings are beautiful. Great short hike for folks who are looking for something quick or are short on time. A couple of small waterfalls along the way. May encounter wildlife (deer).

Hiking trail portion was somewhat challenging and afforded us nice views. I would do again in different season.

Beautiful trail...almost reminded me of the Pacific Northwest at times with all of the pines, ferns, and mushrooms. Saw a couple very pretty waterfalls and the rock ledges were interesting. Well worth the visit.

South Chagrin Reservation was a great place to hike. There were multiple, small trails to increase the distance and many picnic areas to stop to snack or grill out.

It was fairly easy to follow. I also printed out the trail map from the website and it actually coincided with AllTrails this time. It got a little confusing close to Sulphur Springs picnic area because there are a few secondary trails and the bridal trail breaks off...but we were able to figure it out.

The trail was pretty muddy today, but it was still safe and easy to follow. The views are gorgeous! We took our three kids and everyone loved it!

Great trail with many sidetracks to take. You can make it a short loop or a 5 mile adventure.

Very short and the path is very uneven and narrow. Wouldn't suggest bringing your dogs along, we brought our 2 dogs and it was difficult to pass by other groups coming the opposite way. Beautiful views.

Great views and scenery, nice trail, with a few tricky areas. Will go again!
