This a great little workout, a bit much for the toddlers but okay for the pre teen crowd. The hike starts uphill and stays that way for a good while. There are some flat stretches mixed in and a couple stream crossings. Being this short the hike reaches the falls before your to tired to enjoy the falls and they are beautiful. You can cross at the base of the falls and hike up the trail on the other side for a great picnic spot. If the water is high when you go you can decide to climb up the cables to the upper part of the falls. A great workout with an awesome payoff. Enjoy, See you on the trail!

Stunning waterfall! Worth the trek. Make sure to follow the purple blaze. There are a couple of spots where you can get off track if you are paying attention.

The trail was easy to follow today, probably due to all the trees being green and making it easier to determine the trail. Our two year old and 67 year old grandparents made the hike but definitely with assistance. We would recommend the hike to anyone who wants to see a magnificent waterfall. A little bit of a rock scramble here and there.

By far the best waterfall in the upstate. It's a job getting to it but so worth it. Look for the purple blaze and don't get off track by following the wrong trail when you get to the part where you go left to the falls there are several trails don't let the sound of water fool you into thinking it's the right one continue up the trail till the purple goes left if you go down any trail to the left and you don't see purple Within a few hundred feet you're on the wrong one after you go down the purple one to see the next set of falls above it backtrack then go up to the next tier you won't regret this trip
