The waterfall is gorgeous.... very enjoyable hike. Light traffic. Just be aware of the $10 park fee.

Great trail, good incline and beautiful views. Good for kids (mine are 9 & 11) & dogs. Be aware there’s a fee to park and dogs must be leashed.

This was awesome. It was fairly easy and once you get to the seven pools it's a bit of a playground of streams and small cascades. A perfect ratio of exposed hiking to canopied trail for a hot day.

Took my hubs who was reluctant to go. It was a bit uphill to get to the Pool of Winds, but totally worth it. It's beautiful. I would've taken him further up the mountain, but it was too late in the day, and beings his first in a long time, maybe some other time :)

Pretty good hike. Nice and quick but the end result wasn’t astonishing. Good for people who know that but probably not for kids. They’ll think it was a waste of time.

Perfect for a short hike in the gorge. DO NOT follow Google directions!

Very nice trail leading to a good payoff when you arrive at Rodney Falls. Views of Hardy Falls are limited but the rest of the scenery and small waterfalls/streams are gorgeous. Be careful if you go to the Hardy Falls overlook--fairly steep and I would imagine a little slippery if wet.

Road to the trailhead was closed, so we parked at Beacon rock and walked up. Muddy and snowy trail, mostly uphill/ downhill, but beautiful views of the gorge and nice walk up viewpoint right off the side of the main waterfall. Will go again all the way to Hamilton mtn when it warms up!

Good hike with a nice safe trail. Very muddy this time of year though. The falls are very full and rushing right now.

Nice hike . Big waterfall with a bridge across. And areas to get close but hold on to those kids steep in some areas and mostly uphill/downhill.

Moderate hike only because a lot of it is uphill (4/1/17). Doable with little kiddos, some nice views. Trail was very accessible. You cannot get very close to the falls, so it’s not incredibly popular like some others in the Gorge. This is actually quite nice, as we didn’t really face crowds of people.
