This trail is much easier than the other trail going to Laurel Falls. There's lots of steps near the falls but otherwise after that not much elevation change. This will be a great hike for anyone wanting to take a short hike.

Easliy one of my favorite hikes! Beautiful views along the way! This trail has some level spots but overall I'd rate it moderate, difficult in spots due to rocky areas, stairs and inclines.

Nice trail. I've hiked to the falls both ways. Take this trail if you don't have a lot of time, but want to see a nice waterfall.

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.
