Mellow trail to the falls; no true steeps. Falls are spectacular; great place to spend a few hours. Some trail sections are a bit awkward because of the amount of rocks in the ground. The easiest hike I've done in the region, but still a good reward.

First hike of the season! Not to mention first hike after many, many years not hiking. This hike was a little strenuous on my first time out in forever but, not to the point of having to low crawl my way up. The falls are definitely worth it. They are absolutely beautiful. All the people and pups we encountered were very pleasant especially a 3 month old GS puppy named Maverick that I wanted to take home! Such a little fluff ball! Anyway, it was a great hike and I will definitely do it again!

The waterfall is stunning - the tallest I've ever seen.

I found this walk to be challenging, but it was so worth it. There are some fairly steep sections, lots of rocks, several fallen trees to scramble over.

Wear hiking shoes; waterproof if you've got 'em.

I picked this trail on a whim and it certainly didn't disappoint. mild elevation and the falls at the end where one of those "wow" moments.

Great trail. Not too hard for an out of shape 40 year old. lol
worth the end result 19:00+ minute miles bout an hour and 45 minute trip. Good spring hike. The pup loved it too...!!

Great hike- enough variety to keep the 11,13,&14 year olds interested- several small stream crossings made for a little adventure. Bit more strenuous due to snow & ice but beautiful 60+ degree weather kept us going. Only disappointment was the falls were non-existent, but overall a fantastic day!

I would rate this hike on the easier side. It's a nice walk through the woods with a waterfall at the end. It's uphill for the first 3/5 or so of the trail and then a straight away to before a small decline at the waterfall. Overall it shouldn't take too much longer than 2 or 3 hours to complete.
