Have done this hike multiple times now but on our most recent outing we took a different route. We entered from Shenandoah National Park(route above) which decreased the distance to around a six mile hike instead of 11. The first three miles are straight down to falls and overlook. It hadn't rained in awhile and the river was bone dry with the waterfall. The view was still great but we came for the waterfall. It made for a very long 3 mile hike back up and out.

We did this on a Sunday. Not too many other people out. We did start clockwise and that did make the hike more challenging. Our Fitbit watches clocked this at about 9 miles round trip from the truck and about 200 flights of stairs. We did see a couple of bears in the large brush. Pretty views and a good workout.

Down then up! Decent hike that allows you to run early on the downhill and then a steady climb coming back. I got stuck in a rain shower but the canopy of the trees keeps you almost completely dry. The streams were dry and the falls were just a trickle that wet the walls so not very scenic for august hike. I figured it would be dry. Some of the climbs are long and steep so be prepared to grind it out.

We had planned on hiking up to the falls. The Alltrails map showed it as a 2.5 miles up to the falls. Turns out its more like 3 miles. We did the hike at the end of July. The creek beds were dry even though it had rained the day before.

We got to the parking area at 8am, and were the 3rd car there. When we finished 3 hours later, the parking area was full with cars parked along the road for a few hundred feet.

If there had been water in the creeks it would have been better. Without the water, it was a hike through the woods on a trail that is covered with rocks. You need good footwear to avoid turning an ankle and/or bruising the bottom of your feet.

The last mile up to the waterfall is pretty steep. I calculated it around 18%. So its a doozy.
