Did this hike back in January of 2017 and it was icy and slick which made the trek harder than it would be in the spring or summer months.

This is the easiest and maybe one of the most beautiful trails in the gorge. Hoping it opens back up soon ❤️

One of my favorite ever hikes- So sad it’s closed! Feels like another world being surrounded by huge amounts of moss and greens while in a valley between the rock. Ugh. Absolutely love it. The falls at the end are worth visiting a thousand times over.

Closed. You cannot get into the park. It's blocked off by cones because of the fire. I tried to sneak in but was stopped by the park patrol. He said it isn't open until March.

This is probably one of my favorite hiking trails. I've taken my daughter (4 years old) with me multiple times and she loves it as well. I highly recommended this trail to anyone, and it's great for kids.

Quite a busy trail but still beautiful and not too tough for an afternoon. The views along the trail and at the falls are well worth the small crowding.

This was an easy-going, quick little hike, with a massively beautiful waterfall at the end. I went on a weeknight between 4-6, and it was pretty crowded. Not recommended if you are looking for solitude, but worth the trip. Little work, for a big reward.

Great, easy, short hike to a beautiful waterfall and pool area where you can get in if you want. Started this one around 5pm and was back at the car at 7. Great evening after work de-stress hike!

Super quick, a little steep at times en route but overall, always a pleasant hike.

I'm not sure this was an "easy" hike. That said, it was a beautiful waterfall. Next time I will take my trekking poles.

My Apple fitness tracker said we climbed the equivalent of 14 flights, but the AllTrails app says 310 feet.

I was told it was easy and that was very true. It was easier than what I was looking for- but the falls was so beautiful I'm glad i did it anyway.

It's a great hike that begins in the back of the parking lot. Parking can be a problem. It's well maintained and somewhat crowded. It's one of the best falls in the gorge in my opinion.

This trail starts out looking very commercialized. But then once it starts ascending, it gets the natural trail feel that you see a lot of in the gorge. Love the loop option. I'd recommend to stay left at first, so you can get the awe effect of seeing the falls straight on! It's quite the view. Large pool base on the bottom so you can easily get down and take a dip in the summer time! This falls is easy to get to and a nice one to visit for all ages! Enjoy!
