Cool trail. Plan on doing the Cable Trail, Fall Creek Falls, and the swinging bridge at Piney Creek Falls on the same day. All short but amazing.

I had a blast on this hike, only bummer was length. I wish it was just a little longer! Make sure you wear good shoes, it got wet and slippery in places but overall I had a great time. 4/5 stars for me due to trail length, 5/5 otherwise.

There are two waterfalls into a swimming hole at the end of this trail so don't forget to bring your swimwear. It's definitely worth the climb down which gets a little daunting during the rain.
Some places might be a little too sketchy for kids or older folks as you need to have sufficient reach and flexibility while descending.
