Pretty easy, just one area where you need to cross a creek.

We arrived at 8:30 on a Sunday in mid-July and had a great hike. There's several lil cascades to see on the way to the falls that are very pretty to see. It's steep in several places; laden with heavy roots and loose rocks to maneuver around and a few muddy places from the water draining down the mountain into the brook. It took us about an hour to go up, but we stopped several times along the way to take pictures and see the cascades. The journey down took maybe 45 minutes. It's a great hike. My friend and I are not experienced hikers and we had no issues with this hike. We pretty much had the whole area to ourselves until we started back down the trail and ended up meeting a total of 5 people on the way down and a dog. We mingled around the falls for a good 30 minutes before heading out. Although it was an extremely hot day (in the 80's) the trail itself was shaded by the trees. The wildlife we saw was a small snake, (non-poisonous), orange salamander, a giant snail, and tons of butterflies that were in clusters everywhere. Highly recommend the trip....we will be going back.

pretty short hike. Not too difficult, it is a pretty popular place so you are sure to run across others. I've been there many times. It's beautiful in all seasons. Be careful if you go to the top, very slippery. I've almost fallen down it before ;p

Beautiful semi moderate hike. Waterfall was worth it.

Great hike and the scenery was fantastic. The rocks made the trek in and out a little difficult but well worth it.

The hike is absolutely beautiful. I found the hike in to be tough for me though. Between the elevation climb and sections where the path is nothing but rocks, I had to stop many times along the way to catch my breath. But it was definitely worth it and I'll do it again.
