I took my two year old in a pack on this hike. A bit slippery with rocks and roots. Trail is well marked, but fairly overgrown in spots. Had to jump from rock to rock in a few areas where the best route is next to the creek instead of the trail. Bring bug spray and a camera! Falls were great (mid-June). Saw some deer and newts.

Nice, quiet hike with a pretty decent waterfall at the end. Only saw one couple the whole time. Great if you only have part of a day, or there is plenty of exploring to do if you scramble up the side of the falls if you'd like to stay longer. The road was still closed from a storm last October, was easy to reroute, though.

Due to recent flooding (or maybe because it is spring), start of the trail is loaded with tierces and streams, it is very wet. Good thing - you can pass this part by jumping from rock to rock to root, feels like someone had made a pathway from rocks :) Rubber boots would be recomended. Or just grab a stick to balance through. Further on and closer to Jacoby Fall trail gets more rocky. At some point trail moves to road and over small meadow (beware of blackberry and kind of wild rose thorns! got one in my leg and another almost hit my cheek, :D). At the end falls are full and beautiful.

Met only 1 couple when heading back. Almost no birds and no other animals. Beware of ticks.

Road from Williamsport side (State Route 1003) was closed due to road slide, so had to take detour of 15-20 km. It is easy to locate start of the trail and there is a place to park the car.

Total route took us close to 2 hours (yep, we are slow, because we come from flat and non-rocky land, :D), 5.8km and 135 total ascent (Garmin Fēnix).

The fall was more of a dribble, still pretty though. The hike out was ok and a little rougher than I was led to believe. Saw 2 other couples on our walk.

This is a nice, quick hike. It's a pretty easy trail. The waterfall is a bit underwhelming if there hasn't been much rain, but the scenery is beautiful. If you go, take bug spray - the mosquitoes are horrible! I've never run into many people on this trail, it's one of the best kept secrets. Also, the trail usually ends up being about 3.75 miles for me out and back.

A nice quick hike and not too "peopley" this time of year. It has been a dry summer, so nothing much fall wise, but may return in the spring to see the waterfall.

We recently visited this trail for the first time today, nice dedicated parking area. The trail was fairly simple, beautiful place for an afternoon adventure. Due to our drought the falls this season weren't as great as if we would've had rainfall. I'd definitely go again, takes about 3 hours hiking slow.

Fall was dried up due to the lack of rain. It was still a great hike and worth the visit.

The trail itself was very clearly marked, followed a nice crick some of the way, and the waterfall was worth the short hike. I enjoyed exploring the top of the falls as well :)
