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 and easy for kids to complete. Expect a hike from your vehicle. Busy trail.

We hiked this in mid September 2017. There were quite a few cars in the parking lot but we had to wait only about 10 minutes before a spot opened up. This was an easy hike on well groomed, wide trails, with a slight but steady increase in elevation. We didn't finish the loop and turned around after only 4 miles because it started snowing heavily and we weren't dressed for snowy conditions.

Great trail. Ran into a couple of mountain bikers on the trail otherwise we were by ourselves until the falls were it was a little crowded. Must pay attention to signage. We missed the return loop so completed it as an out and back.

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.
