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.

Very easy and short hike. The waterfalls were pretty close to the parking lot, so even grandma/grandpa could go check them out. There are several trails in the area, so we did 3 separate short hikes.

The first waterfall is wheelchair and stroller accessible. We went when the leaves were changing and our photos could've been taken from calendars or postcards. Easy hike but if you really want to enjoy it you'll need extra time to soak in the views.

We only saw two other people the whole time we were there. Very secluded. Extra large waterfalls to climb around. Nice swimming holes as well. Not too strenuous but rocky at some parts. Took about an hour, maybe a little less.
