This is a really nice short hike. We have two young children that hiked it with us and they had no problems getting around. There had been a lot of rain recently so the waterfall was really flowing! It's not too far from the Skyline entrance which is a plus if you don't want to spend all day on the drive. highly recommend this trail.

The waterfall was flowing today, and that made this short hike worth it. We tried this hike this past fall and were disappointed with the trickle.

We had an enjoyable out and back hike down a fire road to a small stream (Lands Run) to see a small cascade. This trail is also known as the Hickerson Hollow Trail. We parked at the Lands Run parking area (no restrooms) at MP 9.2 on Skyline Drive.

Nice little falls with a lovely down and back trail to Browntown. Great on horseback. This hike is an easy one, best done in the fall as the trail is lined with bright yellow leaves.

Went with a dog, 8 and 11 year old. It was easy. Just walked what appeared to be a logging road. Was a climb out. Fun day, no reason to go back.

It wasn't anything special. It's a fire road with lots of loose gravel, made the walk slick and footing poor. Not really any views, the falls kind of pop up out of nowhere and the fire road continues. The summer view of the falls was unimpressive but water on a trail always gets a star. NPS has some leftover piping from installing the drainage system along the trail. The trail is basically downhill from the parking lot, steep in places. Not clear where the trail ends at the falls- fire road. Meh.

For an easy-rated hike, this was perfect with kids and dogs. Be prepared for the uphill on the way back!
