Awesome Trail with a 70-foot cascading waterfall half a mile down. The trail itself comes with a warning, need to have proper gear. Trail is about a foot and a half wide with very steep drop-off on one side and is a zigzag down the side of the mountain. Treacherous is the word that comes to mind but totally worth it for the view. Great hike.

We loved this trail. Downhill in it's entirety on the way out and uphill the entire way back. Take it slow on the way back and you should be OK. Be careful as several parts of this trail are slippery when wet. The trail features a waterfall and is very beautiful. I would recommend this trail to anyone.

I've hiked this trail dozens of times. Great place for some exercise and to take in some nature. The path down is easy but the hike all the way back up the mountainside is a little bit of a challenge. Take your time and take it easy and you can make it up no problem. There are a bunch of benches along the way to rest if you need to.

This was highly used trail, especially in the fall as the hike was beautiful to experience. The way back up the hill can give you a decent cardio work-out.

This is a great trail to do during peak fall foliage for the views you get at the top. I was on the trail by 8:30am and passed a few other groups. The trail is wet in spots and the bottom half has lots of stairs. It's a relatively quick hike, I found it to be moderate. It ended up being about 3.5 miles down and back up for me. It was definitely getting busy as I was coming back up. Beautiful waterfalls and scenery on the way.

This is difficult trail that takes you past some waterfalls and has stairs for the steepest areas. The weather today was not the greatest with colder temperatures and sleeting but still turned into a good hike. Getting back up to the top is a workout but well worth it.
