Well worth the hike after the easy part. Once you get past the downed bridge (man made tree trunk bridge available) the path is a bit difficult to follow at times. Steep descents on the way back down.

well worth effort!! We've lived here for 10 years-- finally understood what everybody else was talking about it was 10 out of 10 Stars rocks and boulders the size of two-story buildings do yourself a favor and keep going past the easy piece it's well worth it

This is a must-see trail, especially now that the trees are turning. Make sure to follow the trail all the way to the dirt road where you take a left for buzzard point for unbeatable views of the valley!

A great trail! Bridge is still out, but used two trees that were laid down in order to cross. Visited the Falls after heavy rainfall and it was spectacular. Some slippery rocks and steep descents but overall a non-strenuous hike.

Great hike!
- Easy to lose the trail in a few spots.
- 3.5' trail width with steep drop in several areas.
- not ideal for kids who need support (13+ recommended age, unless experienced)
- Plan trip with plenty of time. Most of trail lays between two ridges so dark sets in a little earlier.

- also good spots for: camping, backpacking, rappelling, climbing.

Beautiful trail, but very hard to follow. Markers and trail are not marked properly. No water hardly at the falls.

Moderately hard trail, not for the inexperienced hiker. The trail markers are more of a general guide, if you can find them, as well as the marked trail on the app. We got lost plenty of times along the way and had to search repeatedly for a trail to get us there, but if you're up for a strenuous hike it's worth the view at the end!

What a beautiful and interesting place. Besides the scenery there are all kinds of things to explore. There are lots of architectural elements that are really cool. Bridge remains and tunnels. I would highly recommend. Easy trail to explore.

Defenetly worth the time. I loved the view when you get to the point. It will take about 1 hour 30 - 2 hours depending on your experience. Its got some nice swimming sports my favorite is hidden near the bridge. I usually go there every weekend sence its 5 minutes away from my home.

Awesome hike and beautiful scenery! We hiked to Laurel Falls but didn't make the other due to time. Definitely going back!

Totally worth the hike. We had to cross the creek to get to the rest of the trail to the overlook and falls, and I would only recommend it if you're into strenuous hikes. The overlook was beautiful, I'd definitely go again.

The trail is scenic in the beginning, and gets harder as you go. The bridge is out, so you have to maneuver your way across the water. The trial was blocked by heavy trees and we where not able to complete about.75 of a mile of the trail. Besides that it was worth the trip.

Me and my friends had such a great time exploring! This trails offers a lot of opportunities to wander off the trail and explore. Hardly felt like 6 miles! Got a little lost trying to find the trail, but once we finally found it, it was worth the drive!
