Nice hike on well-maintained trail. The Narrows are really amazing once you are down there. There's a viewing deck but also a trail before the deck (going the opposite way) that takes you down to the creek and another waterfall below. Really looking forward to coming back in the summer.

Amazing the falls being so narrow to see the beauty of large or narrow falls are all amazing.

This was a great hike and not as difficult as rated. Anyone in reasonable shape can do this. The distance was exactly as stated according to our GPS. The Narrows are not to be missed! Beautiful! There is a spur to the left of the sign just as you get to the narrows that will take you down to the water for a perfect place to cool off and rest. The spur is about a 2 minute walk off the main trail. There is not much to see along the way, but the end is worth it. Walking out was not hard as the climb is short, then it levels off and you are back to the parking lot before you know it! I would go again for sure!! Maybe in winter to get a better view!

Easy trail, but as of May 28th, 2017 a big tree is down and blocking the path. It's more than a little sketchy, but doable.

Absolutely beautiful narrows and falls at the end of this trail. Easy hike in, moderate hike slightly uphill back. The mileage listed is total, there and back. I wouldn't call this a hard hike. Go after a heavy rain like I did for gorgeous scenery.

great trail today (2/4/17). After a short walk from the parking lot we were easily able to follow the yellow blazes down to the narrows. Saw a few people along the way. Looking forward to exploring more of this area.

The trail is an out and back not a loop that i found, The trail is 5.4 miles out and back from what the sign says, my fit bit says it is 3.8. From the parking lot you must walk up the road a little bit to get to the trail. The trail is well maintained and has a lot of elevation changes.
