Ever want to get through an outdoors obstacle course? Then this is the hike for you! Be prepared to navigate through logs, climb through rocks, and wade some freezing cold water. The views at the end are breathtaking, and the challenge makes the hike that much more fun. It is full of people, but it can be fun to share this little adventure with others.

So much fun. Waterfall at the end is just ok (I went in August, prob more robust in spring) but loved climbing over the logs and wading through the creek. Short hike, but this hike is definitely more about the journey than the destination.

Exotic enveloped watery log laden trail. Dangerous for old folks, younger folks, and animals. Expect to get soaked. Would have been five stars but swamped by hikers takes away some of the majesty of the moment. Still very fun and met cool people!...but also a couple shitty people.

Great short little hike but not a hike for dogs because there are a ton of logs in the middle of the gorge right now that you have to climb over. We had to carry the dog over it and was very difficult/dangerous

All in all the views and surroundings of this hike are beautiful. Only real drawback is the crowds of people who flock to this spot. That said, everyone was kind and considerate to each other but not the best hike for someone looking for solitude.

The trailhead is a steep 2.5 miles up to see the triple falls. We did half of that hike before realizing we really wanted to just walk through the gorge to see the lower falls. This is where all the people were. Quite crowded on a hot day, but fun.

went hiking through the creek part of the trail to lower Oneonta Falls. taking this route you have to climb over a series of logs and walk through the creek with the water being atleast waist high, but it is worth it to see the falls up close and below it. this is not the recommended path, but most everyone takes this path.
