Easy stroll to Henline Falls. To the right of Henline Falls there is an old mine shaft. At some point a steel gate was installed and at a later point a small section was cut out of the gate allowing access. If you are looking for a more challenging venture recommend the 'Ogle Mountain Trail' which is before you arrive at the actual falls and forks to the right and up. It will lead you to the top of the waterfall and onto many other falls. Google "Family Falls" for more info.

beautiful hike with lots of features to enjoy...very easy aside from the initial 1/2 mile, which is easy but all uphill

My GPS watch measured 7 mi. there and back. The trail was well marked and the last mile or so as you run parallel the creek is fantastic. The falls are a must see!

You can actually drive and park right near the falls and it's about a .5 mile to the top lookout and not very steep. If you continue on the trail it's about 4 miles along the river and is gorgeous. I would also recommend taking the side trail near the beginning to walk down near the base of the falls.

Relatively easy hike that leads to an amazing view of the waterfall. There is a smaller trail toward the end that you can take to go to the base of the waterfall. Pretty cool experience.

The view at the end makes the hike completely worth it! At the end of the hike there is a .25 mile trail to view the falls from the top, along which there is a small trail jutting off that you can take to go underneath the waterfall. Go check it out, but be careful! It's very slippery! Having to hike to the falls (instead of just driving to it) made the feeling of going under the falls that much more refreshing

Very beautiful & the wildflowers all smell so lovely! It is heavily trafficked though.

There's a parking lot at the falls. There's nothing to see on the trail itself so it's pretty pointless. Recommend just driving to the falls
