I did this hike on December 28 2016, when the waterfall was frozen. We got to about one mile from the trailhead before getting out and walking to the trailhead. In the winter, this trail can be done by stronger children, but some steep sections are hard in the snow, like the final descent to the falls.

Great little hike to the Falls. Went there today to find a little peace and quiet and was so disappointed to find a million little kids there. And then there were the parents who let them run amok and scream as loud as they could. Parents really need to teach their kids the value of nature and not run on the trails, not go off the trails and not litter. It's an accident just waiting to happen. Will try to go again when it's less crowded, maybe in the winter???

A lot of people make this a tough one. The falls are amazing, but the amount of people who don't respect nature is very high. If you can manage to just look past them, this is a great one and pretty easy. Ok for kids as well.

Went with a friend and our kids, aged 5 to 13. Easy enough for the 5 year old and interesting enough for the teenager. ;) It is definitely heavily trafficked and I'd recommend going mid week in the a.m. to beat the crowds.
