Nice hike, beautiful falls

This is a great hike for the weekend! It's full of wildflowers in spring and summer. I've seen a ton of cool mushrooms and fungi as well. Bobo Creek is nice for a dip in hot weather, as well as Machine Falls. It's crowded on warm weather weekends though, so if you're looking for peace and quiet, go on a weekday.

one of the best! the waterfall on a hot summer afternoon was amazing!

Great trails and beautiful falls! Loved that most of the hike was under the shady canopy of the trees. Only downfall was NO BATHROOMS ANYWHERE so you if you have to go, be prepared to water a tree.

Great hike not only to machine falls but we also saw several other falls on about a 3 mile loop. Nicely marked trails. Great for older kids but probably too difficult for younger ones.

loved this....my Chihuahua loved it too. we went in at a different entrance so it took us awhile to find the falls but it was totally worth it when we got there.

A nice trail, with some good inclines that make you work and a beautiful waterfall. However, poison ivy is very heavy during most of the trail and there was a lot of trash too. A lot of this trail's users are forgetting a main rule of hiking. Leave the trail the way you found it.

The trails arent too terrible. I did find that the Adam's Falls had nothing at it for the loop. There is also another loop past the bugsy falls that is just a loop. All in all not a bad place.
