Good hike and beautiful falls. Pretty rocky trail but it's a good time.

It's a steep uphill climb most of the way to the falls and large sections of the trail are in full sun - but it's worth it.

This is a beautiful hike, multiple water falls and views of a river along the way. I went on a Tuesday so the traffic in the trail was very light. I must say this is the first hike I have done in a while, it was definitely a moderately difficulty hike, with areas of rocky incline.
The trail ends a little ways from Comet Falls, the real spectacle. however if you have the ability you can maneuver on down using rocks and ledges to get right under the water fall. It is worth it to go the last bit to feel the ice cold water after the hike. This hike should be on everyone's list.
