Rocky and muddy in spots, but the falls were lovely and there are old ruins from the mid 18th century to explore.

The falls is a small trickle, easy and safe way to hike down to it so you can explore the sort of cave it runs over. I generally like longer hikes with more elevation (so would do the Linn Run State Park Loop next time), but this was a good one for my 8yo nephew, or others new to hiking. Some interesting old run down buildings too made of stone

The trail is definitely shorter, my pedometer showed 1.6 miles. 1/2 of it is slightly ascending, after that it's pretty flat, comfortable to walk on. The second half is rocky, with logs that need to be jumped over, have to be cautious not to sprain your ankles. The Fall at this time of the year, in a dry summer, is a very thin stream of water, comparable with what you get when you turn on the kitchen faucet. I was more impressed with the picnic area that is right at the entrance of the park, shady and with tables aligned along the stream bed. Might be a fabulous fall after a few weeks of rain, but as of now it's a little disappointing.

There was a lot of people at flat rock but there was no one at Adam falls. Nice trail overall if only less people.

Enjoyed this trail. We lost cell service when we pulled into the parking lot. The park did not necessarily have great directional signs or a map as to where the falls were at. We first walked down stream and then asked others and found the trail to the falls up stream. It was an enjoyable walk.

Some rocky parts that I've been told are heavily populated with rattle snakes during the summer. I thought this was a really enjoyable, easy hike that most anyone could complete without much issue. Some sections get extremely muddy as well post rain. The falls are very beautiful. You can hike down to them, but it's not recommended and because it's wet could be very slippery and dangerous. I didn't go down to the base of the falls but I would love to in the future.

Great short hike for a family. Trail is marked well. There are some fallen trees, which you need to climb over, but nothing unbearable. A lot of great photo spots.

This is a nice loop trail but it is actually a one mile loop according to the park map and hiking info. Some spots can get muddy and it is very rocky and uneven in places so be prepared with good footwear.

This was a great trail to take our cub scout pack on. Just enough uneven terrain and rocks to keep this interesting. Take the trail clockwise for a good view of Adam's Falls at the end of the loop.

This trail is nice and quiet. The main features lie within the first .15 miles on either side of the loop though so if you’re here for the falls or abandoned cabins then you don’t really have to hike it.

Variety of terrain, mostly shady, bit muddy with a few slippery rocks along the way but not unmanageable. Completely doable in my tennies. Fallen trees blocking the trail to a footbridge-required a bit of navigation.

Completed this hike months ago. The hike was a little difficult the day we completed it because there were down trees and it was muddy. But nothing we couldn’t handle. No kids hiked this time but I had my dog with me. No to bad a of hike it wasn’t to long and once again if you don’t want to do the full hike you can just see the waterfall at first. But I’m always down for the hike. Also rained on us at the end of the hike nice way to cool of. Would have been a much better if a hike if all the down trees would have been cleared.

Great trail. The waterfall is right at the start of the trail which makes an exciting entry and exit! It is definitely a moderate hike as there is a fresh spring in parts that make it a little muddy and another small stretch that is a bunch of rocks/boulders. Lots of picnic tables as well. Definitely worth a visit.

Enjoyable loop culminating in a view of the falls. No, the flow isn’t very strong, but it’s neat to see the impressive “grotto” behind the water. The best part of the trail was the very rocky stretch where you hop your way from flat rock to flat rock. Fun! Nice variety in terrain for such a short hike.

Nice trail. A lot of down trees from winter in the trail but nothing you can’t get around.

Hiked on 4/20 after the four mile Grove trail loop so this extra two miles was a nice cool down. Lots of down trees to climb over in one area but otherwise it’s a great short hike to bring your kids on. I kept my dog on a leash as it was fairly busy. The falls is small but nice and you can walk right up next to it and take a shower on a hot day!

Nice easy trail. Lots of tree blow down from this winters wind storms but clear paths around are already established. Nice hike with our family (mom, dad, 5 & 1 year old in a pack). Nice play ground at the parking lot and trails are clearly marked.
