I absolutely adored this place, so we'll main yes by the national park service. Less than 2 miles out and back but you ca. Hike down either sides of the falls. Factory at the top was probably the most scenic fall to look at the middle falls, Fulmer, would likely be impressive but you're kept at a distance on the trails and there are obstructions. Some kids were swimming in this area and got scolded by a ranger. The bottom falls Deer Leap, seemed to allow swimming and it's a nice place to do so. Lots of stair throughout but a very scenic trail. I would definitely recommend.

Janice and I did this hike and added another 2 miles by just following Dingmans creek. It was a good hike. We stayed at a cottage close enough to hike right from the back of the cottage.

Perfect for short walk with family. Well maintained trail and stairs with several places to observe the falls and learn a little local history and ecology.
