Awesome trail! Dries faster than most after a rain.

Great trail..easily marked and lots of steps going up! Waterfall was beautiful. They have the main bridge closed so not so many people are in one area.

the bridge to the one half of it is closed. it was pretty busy when you got down near the falls so if you are trying to social distance I definitely would stay clear of that area but the rest was really quit and clearly marked and a really nice hike.

A bit muddy and running water was a bit slow. Trails were drying out though. Great trail for me and my 10, 13 and 14 year olds. Good views, definitely lots of up and downs.

Loved this trek. Good mix between pavement and actual trials. Can’t wait to come back in the spring and summer

Not worth it! unwalkable. the whole trail is slippery mud. not to mention no views.

My husband and I just hiked this trail. Loved the views and scrambled some of hillsides to get to the water (not the waterfalls). VERY muddy. If you want to see just the falls go to the paved parking lot and paved trail that takes you right to them. Otherwise a good day hike if you don’t mind dealing with mud! Trekking poles definitely came in handy.

This trail has many beautiful scenic views. The Falls is definitely somewhere you want to take your S.O. or even head there by yourself for a relaxing moment in time! Parts can be muddy during the winter/ spring months, very little altitude gain.

Beautiful trail, moderate with some steep sections but not strenuous at all. Very icy right now and slick mud in other areas. Hiking poles would’ve made it much easier and faster!
