Great passage through the woods with lots of time spent near running water. Some of the changes in elevation are not so gradual, so it's also a good workout.

I hiked this in conjunction with the Story of the Forest trail & Dark Hollow Falls trail. Beautiful scenery!

Great hike but get there early as the trail gets busy around 10:00am. My recommendation is to go left at the trail head, you come around to the fire road at the end which for me made it a better hike.

Very good hike. Mostly shaded. Rocky portion along the river valley. Saw a bear cub along the fire road return segment.

On the morning we chose to hike this loop, there was a heavy blanket of fog in the valley. It almost gave it an eerie feeling walking by the river and falls with limited visibility. Very unique given the weather conditions. Would certainly hike this trail again.

We hiked this trail on a foggy day & it gave the trail a really cool feel. It runs right along the water which is awesome. Falls are great! We went straight at the the beginning of the trail instead of to the left, so hiking back to the top was pretty challenging but still enjoyable.
