Great trail, easy starting in as mostly down but harder coming back since going back uphill. Lots of roots so easy to trip of not paying attention. Some parts of the trail were very narrow, making passing others a little difficult as there were no places to step to the side to allow to pass. Waterfalls were a bonus. Easy access to trail head from visitor center parking lot, follow the purple shoe prints.

We went to do Rim of the Gap but found it closed for the season so circled back and did some of this trail. Lovely hike. Technical with rocks and roots (covered I leaves this time of year but great views (less when trees leafed out), cliffs, rock falls, water falls and creeks. Would highly recommend it to anyone with some stamina and confidence in their footing.

Trail is easy to moderate in some sections. Dry conditions made the creek and falls almost dry up. Weather was perfect!

Combined this hike with hawk watch at the overlook; just finished the hike when it was starting to warm up and the kettles of hawks were coming through. Only negative is that being so dry this time of year, the waterfalls were pretty much nonexistant. Also, mileage is misleading as it doesn't start at the trailhead but a way into the into the hike.

Just across the street from Caesar's Head State Park. this is rated at moderate because of elevation change. It could be rate as easy. My daughter and I did the trail in about 1.5 hours. There are 2 very small waterfalls. Overall it not a bad trail but it also not super exciting.

Nice trail mostly covered by trees so was in the shade most of the time. Waterfalls were not impressive at all . But pretty easy hike over all

Any hike through the woods is enjoyable. The falls were small but still worth the hike. Pretty decent ascent coming back up. Chose to hike this trail because we got to the park too late to do the Raven Cliff Falls Trail. Will definitely be back.

Fun short hike, trail can be muddy at times and the rocks at the base of the falls are slick.

Pretty trail. Easy to follow and very well marked. Wish we could see the bottom of the waterfall. Definitely pretty challenging once you are done descending.

Descent, no falls to really see as shown on the map. Gets really narrow and makes you question if you are still on the trail, however it is marked very well!

Great trail for a beginner that likes to be challenged. Our 4 year old handled it very well. Trail is clearly marked with purple. The cave would be a great place to take a break with the family and have a picnic.

Hike was okay, pretty easy. Trees looked beautiful, but not much of a sight of waterfalls. With the loop, go left if you want an easier hike and the first intersection you hit is another trail so make sure to go left in the correct turn (signs will show you). Peaceful and lightly trafficked. Nice little hike to do if you want a short hike or to get a little more steps in.

Good trail with my kids. I would rate it as moderate. Clearly marked. We had no problems navigating the trail at all.

Great trail however NOT an easy trail as rated in Alltrails. This is at best a moderate difficulty. Got caught with small kids on this one as the beginning is very easy but progressively gets more difficult as the trail goes on. There is a fork about half way through the loop section and it is not very well marked. One would think to go with the wider path that seemed more well traveled but just so happened another hiker came from the less traveled trail and instructed us where to go. Wish I could be more help on this note. Overall it was fun but the hiking difficulty level really hit the young kids hard on this one. Treat as a moderate difficulty at best!

Trail was well marked (except the beginning was confusing since there was a service road that wasn't listed and got a smidge off track) anyway the trail was tagged as purple and was easy to read when you came upon different colored trails and at every part where it broke off to a different trail it had a map of the whole park.
