Beautiful falls! The water was so refreshing to stand in after the climb down. The climb down to the falls is steep.

Steep going down to the base of the falls but worth it. Highly recommend. We did it with two tweens and a preschooler.

Beautiful hike. Steep hill down but totally worth the hike down. nice swimming area & deff enjoyable for the whole family. Our dog loved it as well!! if you go deff take the trip all the way down to the fall. Observation deck is nice but to get the full experience go to the bottom!!! 2$ parking for a car make sure to take change lol!!

Absolutely beautiful! But to get the best view you have to walk down a pretty steep hill.

Really pretty an an easy walk to the lookout. If you really want to have fun, scramble down the trail to the bottom of the falls. :)

It’s a nice trail for everyone.. If you want to enjoy just the falls from the distance, you can do it from the overlook. However you can climb down the bottom of the waterfall which is really steep and enjoy it from close.

Going to the bottom and getting back up is pretty steep. Great challenge.

It’s an easy hike. I found it slightly more difficult personally because I’m short and that made getting over some of the rocks or logs difficult for me.

An easy trail to hike, if you want to go to the bottom, it’s a little steep, but if dry, easy to get down to, and back up. Awesome fall to check out!

The steep decent looks scarier than it is. The view of the waterfall below is amazing. You might even catch a rainbow at the bottoms of falls. Beware of snakes-my son found a few at the bottom of the falls. One of my favorite short walks. Be sure to see Stump House Tunnel across from the fall.

Not too great unless you hike 10 min down to the base of the falls. Then you have a great view and it's a 4 star waterfall

No trail to the bottom, but if you don't mind a little climbing back up it's well worth the view from the bottom. Also, at the top of the falls is a ledge where you can climb under the falls. It's an amazing view. Look up the history of the falls, it makes the trip even better!

This one is very adventurous mountain climbing but fun got to be careful about rattlesnakes

There is no "trail" to get to the bottom of the falls. Just a steep and tricky descent. Well worth the vantage point if you can safely manuver your way down. There are hiking trails all around that are well maintained. Only did the yellow trail, which is not a loop trail. Made it 2.2 miles in before turning back. Passes one of the small tunnels which is accessable if you crawl through the narrow opening. Once in you can stand up. Stumphouse tunnel, just a short hike from the falls is pretty unique. To be inside a tunnel that miners worked during the civil war was is quite the experience. New to hiking but i recommend this place.

Good for hot summer days with kids. very quick walk to the falls, and a short climb down to the base where everyone can cool off. It does get crowded during season time, though.

Short walk to a beautiful view of the falls, and a fun downward climb with my 10 year old to see the falls up close!

Short walk to see the falls without too much effort. I've been sick the past few days, so that is wonderful!!

Not a "hike". The scramble down to the base of the falls is just plain FUN! There were plenty of small children and old folks like me hanging out at the base. The Falls are spectacular!

Beautiful waterfall! And during this time of the year the leaves on the trees look amazing!
