The water was beautiful. I would like to come back when it gets a little warmer because the whole trail was covered in ice and was more difficult than it should have been.

The trail was ok, nothing too special. It's basically a walk to the waterfall, look at it for a few minutes, then turn around and walk back kind of deal. The

Beautiful, easy, very busy on a nice day. Not a real hike more of a drive up and walk around area but still very cool.

Beautiful, easy, quick hike to a lovely waterfall. The scenery is beautiful and diverse. The trail was crowded but people were very polite and seemed to know/follow trail etiquette. Parking was easy and even the drive to the trailhead is beautiful.

Easy trail. A little busy but opportunity to see birds and the Black Hills are impressive as the light changes as the sun moves across the sky.

A nice easy trail with plenty of scenery and plenty of brown trout in the creek.

Beautiful area! Easy trail to the falls from the lodge parking area. Nice stop on a day during our road trip - the falls were beautiful! Loved the lush areas along the creek and towering rock-cliffs around us!
