Beautiful falls! Nice, moderate walk until the stone stairs down, but worth it. My dog loved it! I walked past the falls but couldn't find the loop trail, so ended up going back the way I came. Bring extra water, hiking poles, and take breaks climbing back up the steps.

A beautiful hike along the river. The steps are pretty strait down about 450 ish feet. But definitely worth the hike. Beautiful waterfall.

the first mile in is mostly flat, mi or roots and rocks. When you reach the point of actually heading down to the falls is where the adventure begins. We went the morning after an all night rain. The rock steps are steep and slippery when wet, please use caution. A walking stick or trekking piles are a benefit. It was definitely worthy of the walk down. Contrary to belief or was easier to walk up out of the valley.

Wow. A very nice trail. The trail indicates a blue trail marker but the trail mainly had white ones after the trailhead. The turn off the main trail to go to Laurel Falls isn't marked with a trail name marker. You will turn left and go down the stone steps to the bottom for a spectacular view of the falls. We loved it. We also loved that they put in stone steps because it makes it easier to navigate. We will be back for another visit to hike the other trails located at this location.

Nice hike with even footing most of the way. The last bit going down to the base of the falls has many stone steps to negotiate, but the falls are magnificent and well worth the effort.
