Nice trail, but falls were pretty far away.

Good easy/moderate hike. The falls is quite a distance from the overlook platform so is nice to look at but won't get a good pic of without a decent zoom lens. Would definitely recommend taking one of the trails that splits off it to get closer to the falls.

Nice, easy trail but the view to the waterfall from the platform is obstructed by trees. We met the park ranger on our way out and he said a work order was placed to trim the trees near the lookout. Next time we will try the Ravens Cliff Dismal Naturaland Loop to get a better look of the falls. It's a longer, strenuous hike. That trail head splits off to the left shortly before you reach the viewing platform for this trail.

Easy trail but no real view at the lookout. Trees need to be cut down so you can see the waterfall better. Or go in the winter, maybe.

Beautiful trail and great view at the end. Hiking to the bridge over the falls is definitely better, but this is a good shorter alternative.

This was a great hike on a misty, overcast day.
