Was very disappointed in this trail. I would not consider it easy as there were many rocks to avoid and there were places where we actually needed to do a bit of climbing. Very nervous with a 5 year old and a dog, and nervous for the older adults doing the trail. It was also incredibly crowded and the you came out the same way you came in, so you were fighting two-way traffic.

It was a cool little loop with a waterfall. Nice for a light trail jog.

Beautiful trail went on a Sunday in early summer and wasn’t too crowded kinda steep though so make sure you wear proper shoes this was my first time hiking in 7 years and I had a lot of fun!

I've hiked this twice now, once starting at the route 534 trailhead, and at the Oakland dirt rd trailhead. if you are in a rush or don't want to hike far, go with the 534 start, but the much better way from a scenic standpoint and leaving the throngs of people behind is to follow the yellow orchard trail along the creek over to hawk falls via the back way. many great places to wade in and fantastic lunch rocks.

This trail is very easy it is about a mile down to the falls. I recommend bringing water because you could be at the falls for a while. I recommend this trail for all ages because kids like to play in the creek near the falls. If you come in the summer you can go swimming. Over all this is a great trail and the falls are beautiful.

What a beautiful walk, easy for an old man like me with plenty of easy access to the falls. Most definitely will be back after the next heavy rain to check out the falls.

Love this trail. I am not very physically fit and I was able to complete it. It would be nice if the places to actually see the waterfall were marked. There are several locations where you can hear it, but you have to maneuver your way around lots of rocks to get a good view. It was nice to be able to get so close to it though.

Easy marked trail to the base of Hawk Falls. There are side trails throughout that are a bit rocky that can be shortcuts, but if you stick to the yellow marked trail you will get to the same spot.

Great hike for young kids. It's out and back with a lovely waterfall at the turn point. The trail is pretty easy and has lots of opportunities to play in the water and scramble over rocks. My girls (ages 2 and 5) had a great time.

Nice short loop to get out in nature with a waterfall. Great for introducing dogs (or kids) to hiking and getting in the water.
