Downhilnon way out, which means some moments of strenuous uphill on the way back. Great views and good variation in types of trail.

Mid September with very little rain in the past month so no expectation for a waterfall but it was still a great hike. A little more strenuous than expected but it was also hot and humid. Will definitely come back in the spring as there is a wide stream bed along a lot of the trail that would be fun to explore in addition to actually seeing the waterfall.

Lots of stinging nettle on the trail - wear long pants. Otherwise amazing.

Pretty good trail especially if you’re staying at Mathews Arm campground. Just remember not to stop at the first waterfall, there are two and the next one is the 93 footer!!!

I've done pretty much the whole Trail from there all the way up to Pennsylvania where it reconnects to the AT.... primitive and you will say where are the blue blazes but a beautiful "Trail" to get away from everyone else

Hiked this in January with my dog after a big snow storm. It was AMAZING. The falls were iced over and the mountain views to the West were stunning. I was glad to have my poles, microspikes on my boots, neoprene socks, & a thermos with hot coffee. The 3000 ft climb was as good as it gets in our area.

The hike begins mostly downhill until you start to hear the rushing water getting louder and louder, and soon you turn a corner and you are struck with the beautiful sight of the 93 foot waterfall and the valley below. Since I went in the winter, I was able to enjoy this lovely sight to myself, and boy was it worth it. But of course the hike is not over, and soon you deal with the strenuous ascent which still had my "dogs" barking after a few days. Wonderful hike and I'd recommend it to anyone.
