a very nice hike. falls were beautiful. approx 3 hours to complete. understanding the trail layout wes a bit of a challenge as several trails overlap including the mid state trail. took a picture of the trail map posted on the kiosk at the parking area and had to study it for a bit to get my bearings. some of the spurs were overgrown and did not seem to be used much.

Falls were beautiful! A little overgrown and muddy in areas especially after a rainfall but still a nice hike nonetheless. Took us a little while to figure out how to cross the river to get to the bottom of the falls but once we did so worth it.

Nice walk and not too demanding and worth it for the falls.

Great trail...a bunch of water in several spots, but the falls were amazing.

Nice trail. The Falls are beautiful.? it’s pretty much a walk in the woods which is always a good day in the woods there was 3 inches of snow on the ground when I hiked. I will be back when everything is in bloom to see it again. It is a pretty easy hike.

Great hike. We took the orange trail and it took us above the fall. You can walk down the mountain side with a rope that is tied to a tree, but we had the dogs and were unable to get down to the falls with them.

Slightly confusing.. if you’re using the app you should be fine. If you start at the trail near the trail info Tri-stand and follow the red trail, you will eventually come to a section where you can go right and it looks sort of like an arc trail, or continue left. If you go left, it will be muddy with a downed tree and pockets of water.. fun way to go and leads you to the same place as if you would have gone right. We went around 6 and misjudged sunset. Had about 2 miles to go and it was pitch black. Scary! Saw two owls that made sure to scare the living out of us! Overall- great hike for daytime and awesome falls.

This was a great hike to go see the falls! I would stay on the orange trail and do an out and back versus going on the red. The red blazes from 13 on was a dirt path road versus being in the woods.

Beautiful trail! We had no problem doing the loop. Light snow covered the ground making our view even more enjoyable!

if you use this app, you will be fine to hike it. last year we tried to follow the trail via the markings and hot lost, and ended up hiking over 14 miles and hitch hiking. START: start at the wooden sign when you first drive into the lot. the trail is marked orange. hike to the falls (3 miles there). to get to the bottom of the major waterfall, take a rope with you to get back up. when you want to continue hiking this loop, go back the way you came on the trail (dont continue to follow the orange further) and then at the 2nd split you come to, go to the right. (yes, you will overlap some of the trail you walked on the way to the fall). the trail will then be marked red after the split.

Nice, easy hike along the MST to the falls. You'll need to get your feet wet and manage a short, but steep climb down and back if you want to go to the bottom of the falls - but it's well worth it. My only regret was following the red trail back to make this a loop. There's not much canopy so there's a lot of ferns and growth along your feet, boggy mess at points, deer fence walking, and it was just not very enjoyable compared to the walk in along the MST. I would much rather have done this as an out-and-back (which is rarely the case for me).

Loved this trail, perfect walk though the woods. We hiked the loop counter clockwise so we followed the orange blazes down and the red back up. There was a point coming back up that the trail went in a Y and both directions showed red blazes- I’m not sure where the other direction would take you but we went right and it got us back to the trailhead. I recommend hiking shoes and not just sneakers for this trail as it’s extremely muddy in some places.

Overall the trail was in good condition as I did the loop counter-clockwise. Well worth the effort to climb down the steep hill right before the falls overlook as there are several spots to view the falls from the bottom as well as several misc. rock features further down stream. If you do the full loop be sure to pay attention to the Red Blazes as some of the intersections are very confusing.

Nice loop hike to a waterfall. Not really a hike for "views" as it is pretty much entirely in the woods. However, there are some big, beautiful trees and several areas where ferns are plentiful. Plan to spend a little time at the waterfall, and if you feel so inclined, go for a swim! I recommend the full loop rather than out and back because both sides of the loop have their own attributes. pretty muddy in a few spots, but wasn't terrible (and wet means the falls will be flowing better!). Enjoy!

If doing this trail be prepared for wet feet, especially when the year has been extremely wet. There are a few spots where small streams appear to run right down the middle of the trail. Other than that, this is a pretty easy trail....mostly just mileage. Very pretty this time of year with the leaves off the trees and your able to see deep into the woods. The waterfall area is gorgeous!! And well worth the hike! If doing counter clockwise follow the orange blaze till you get to the water falls. Then take the red blaze to make a loop trail. There are several red blaze intersections so be sure to have some sort of map/gps to be sure your traveling in the right direction. There are two parking lots off the hard top road....one will fit maybe three cars but the larger lot will fit several vehicles.

went on this hike with the wife, dog and a 4 year old. the trail was not to technical but you have to watch out for the bogs. Some of the roots and rocks were slippery. Had a nice lunch by the falls!! I would like to try the whole loop next time.
