Extremely beautiful place to hike and it's fairly kid friendly. It's awesome being able to walk directly behind the south falls.

This is such a fun trail to hike on. It has 10 waterfalls on the hike! The best time to go is in the spring when the waterfalls are flowing heavy. It’s a hike that doesn’t disappoint.

Recommend for a pretty easy to moderate hike if you aren’t in great shape! It was beautiful and not busy on the day we went, which was great!

I loved this hike! We looked at both falls. Super fun to be able to walk behind both and see the backside of water. There was frost, so it was a little slippery in areas, but manageable. Switchback incline was tough. But a break here and there and we were fine. Bathrooms were good. Cafe was perfect as we were cold and hungry.

Awesome hike, I’ve hiked it three times. Amazing falls.

Lovely hike on easy trails. There are a couple beautiful falls for a shorter hike.

Beautiful trails and falls but over populated. Sadly people are starting to leave trash behind and large groups are blocking paths often.

This is only a nature walk. No waterfalls on this side near the campground. It’s a good long walk from parking lot to get to this trail. But if you’re looking for an easy hike, this is for you.

Easy hike to go with family or friends if you have plans in the afternoon but want to go out in the morning. Stunning views along the way really elevate the light walking you'll be doing. Worth the trip out.

I went on this hike today with the intention of completing the trail of ten falls but had to cut it short due to downpours of rain I wasn't dressed appropriately for. I managed to see the south falls and some others before cutting it short. Walking behind this fall was amazing - there were orange moss growing on the lava based rocky surface behind the fall which was surreal. Sights of autumn leaves on trees opposite the fall is amiably clear and perfectly present.

Very easy and beautiful- continue to lower South falls and you'll have a good workout back up

Unique hike with the walk behind waterfalls. We liked lower South Falls as it was less crowded and you are closer to the water.

Gorgeous, but way too crowded.

Beautiful, although the more you hike down remember you have to go back up, but soooo worth it.
