Great trail to hike. Very pretty with gushing water fall and creek bed. Hiked it with my 3 kids, husband and friend. It was some muddy but not to bad. The bridge is fun to cross- it gives a little as you cross it but it’s a unique part of the trail. The north loop adds a little length to trail but not much and is narrower but not much more different. As you hike back, it is not marked, the trail just splits.

Easy hike. We took two 11 year olds and they did fine. Definitely recommend wearing hiking boots or hiking shoes - really helps with the mud. $5 parking fee.

Great trail and the North Loop is a must. Once you pass the “drip bridge” there is a post with a then trail leading up to the left of the main trailhead. Head up the hill and the North Loop will drop you halfway to the suspension bridge. Beware of black bears, saw fresh tracks this am on the North Loop.

This was an AMAZING hike! the bridge was so fun and you can shake it (people don't like that hahaha) and it sways in the wind. You can get down to the waterfall too. There is a little off trail that I didn't finish because I didn't know where it went and I didn't want to get lost...it was my pre-All Trails life!

Great trail, super calm and relaxing! The suspension bridge is awesome and the waterfall is beautiful! I would definitely get there as early as you can, when we were leaving there was a ton of people getting there. Roads up are a bit tight as they are single lane with curve outs so be cautious!

This trail was nice and easy. Muddy in some areas. The bridge brings this hike to the next level! Waterfall was amazing! A must see and do, we will be back!

Great trial and kid friendly, this trail gives a couple really awesome views and keeps you entertained. Even in the mud, my kids had no problem making this trail, it is a little steep.

February 17th, 2020. Easy hike. Got there just after 9am and there was one other car. Getting back at 11am and there were 20 cars in the lot. Go early to beat the crowd and get your insta worthy pictures lol. Was pretty muddy in spots but we were prepared for it. Wear boots! Pictures can’t do it justice; it’s just beautiful. Everyone talks about the bridge, but the waterfall is just as great!
