Great hike lots of lush greenery to stay cool. Lovely clear water running through the river from the beautiful waterfalls. Bummed our dog couldn’t go on the entire loop, so we’ll have to do this again. Lots of people today

Great trail with beautiful green tunnels. The Trail of Ten Falls portion doesn’t allow pets, but the other 15 miles are perfect with a pup.

Great hike! A little muddy, but not slippery. My 4 year old hiked the whole loop with no problems. The waterfall scenery was spectacular. Dogs are allowed on the Upper Falls trails, but not on the Trail of Ten Falls.

First to Review

I started this trail from the Conference area at 4:00am so for about 3.5 hrs. it was dark. Some parts of the trail were hard to piece together when doing the whole 21.1 mile loop. I went when it was nasty out; Windy, rainy, cold... It snowed on the higher elevations and a lot of the Trail had 6” or more water on it. A lot of the rain water was pooling or running down parts of the Trail. Parts of Buck Mtn. Loop and enough mud to eat your whole shoe. But it was still FUN! From the Conference area I started the trail just past the Dining Hall. Go across the bridge and up the ‘T’. I went RIGHT following the Equestrian Loop (what I thought was ‘Cut Off Trail’). on their maps the was called ‘Old Maple Trail’. When I got to the next ‘T’ to ‘Buck Mtn. Loop’ I went LEFT (this is where I made my only wrong turn, I should of went right). I followed the signs (which were easy to follow even in the dark). Took ‘Buck Mtn. Loop’ to ‘Perimeter Trail’ to ‘Canyon Trail’. From here just follow all the signs. Be sure to stop by all the Waterfalls and take in the views. Follow ‘Canyon Trail’ past South Falls to the Park Area. From here (I ran around for like 15min trying to find the connection) you take the ‘Bike Path’ which connects you to the Campground. Go through the campground (I know, it was hard to connect them, there were no real directions) to the road. To the LEFT there is a sign across the street with an arrow for ‘Rackett Ridge Connector Trail’ but the trail head has no real sign (had to ask a Park Ranger for directions) before you get to the ‘T’ in the road the ‘Rackett Ridge Connector Trail’ starts to the right. It crosses the road and continues, it follows the road for a bit the head back into the forest. You run to a cross trail, keep going straight. You run partly up a Fire Road to another ‘T’. Go LEFT then you follow the signs (I took ‘Howard Creek Trail’ back) to go back to the Conference area. My GPS was off on the mileage, probably cause I missed that first turn. * Parking Fee. * GPS works. (Verizon & AT&T only) * Depending where on the trail, there are toilets.
