Awesome hike. I have heard there's a shorter hike for people that don't want to hike the 5.8miles.Its from the backside of the falls. I've hiked up behind the falls and there is a trail but I'm not sure where it goes. The normal 5.8 isn't bad. However once you get close to the falls you have to go through some pretty high grass wich we kind of ran through hoping there wasn't any snakes haha. I think instead of going through the grass you can probably stay along the fence on the falls side and go down the falls.

Nice views of the lake with hardly any challenging ups or downs. VERY rocky terrain so wear good durable shoes and watch your step. Probably not a great trail for small kids. The overlooks are beautiful but aren't fenced at all. Considerable boat noise. Moderately trafficked. We almost got to the falls today, but the last part of the trail was almost completely overgrown with really tall grass that we didn't feel comfortable wading through. Kind of unfortunate as we were really looking forward to it. Dog friendly for the most part, but no poop receptacles. The small stream was no obstacle at this time of year and was barely running. Overall, we'd probably do this trail again. It's free to hike and the people at the gate are very friendly. A map at the trail head would be helpful, as would trail markers.

A great trail for a quick hike. The diversity in terrain throughout the trail provokes caution as you tread over jagged and slick rock. Quaint streams become surprising rapids after most rains, be ready to get a little wet.
