Trail was well marked and easy to follow. It had rained the day before and there some slick rocks to contend with.

Lots of rocks made this fun for my ten year old to climb and my dog to play in the creek

None of the signs actually said Strip Mine Falls. Actually took wrong route (lower loop) with made this a strenuous hike to get to the top. Supposed to be a Blue Hole, found the sign but didn't see a Blue Hole. Did find out about a cave a few feet past the falls. It was really cool, beautiful but a bear was also in there! No kidding! We were chased out of the cave by a bear! Yes I know you don't run from a bear, but you just try to think straight when confronted by one! That made this hike the most memorable hike of my life though, that's for sure! BTW. My best friend left me to die! She was gone!
