If you like vivid and scenic waterfall scenes, this trail is for you! There are several places when you can almost "touch" waterfalls :), but be sure to watch your step. Trail is well-maintained, so it will help you manage with its challenges.

This is one of my favorite trails, especially if you can get there on a week day or early before too many others come because it does become a pretty busy trail. It shouldn't be taken lightly, hiking boots are definitely recommended. Also be sure to watch your step. Much of the trail is straight up or down steps, so you have to be paying attention. If you bring kids, keep a close eye on them. The falls are gorgeous as well as the surrounding scenery. It does tend to dry up a lot in the summer time. It's a work out for sure.

This is one of my favorite trails. Try to go each Fall around Columbus Day to enjoy the fall foliage. Very difficult and challenging. Recommend parking at the bottom of the mountain and hike up. Follow trail to the left at the bridge as that side is steeper.

What a great trail! Went on a Wednesday around 11 and it wasn't too crowded! (Late September) we took our dog and ran the trail when we could. We took the longer side up, nice easy trail running across, then down the other side. Beautiful waterfalls, amazing scenery and a well marked trail. Solid moderate hike for sure! Run the whole thing for a great workout.
