Diverse views of nature as you hike this loop. Be warned, however, that the last leg of this loop is simply a walk along the road back to the lodge.

HikingGreat!

One of my favorite Waterfalls. Easy to get to, but the steps are a doozy. Spectacular!

Very easy out and back. I wouldn’t consider it a hike because it is extremely short but it has an amazing few of the falls.

Short walk to overlook. There were less people on this path compared to the Blackwater Falls option.

Great trail with lots of tree roots and rocks so pay attention where you are placing your feet. The yellow trail got a bit confusing at times but it’s all marked and there is an area that we questioned if we should cross but you see the yellow mark so we were on the right path. 5.4 miles total and very relaxing!

I’m a seasoned hiker, the trail wasn’t clear and I got lost for a bit of the way. Apart from that, it’s pretty except for the trails that makes you walk on roads?

Quick & beautiful overlook of the Blackwater Falls. Boardwalk style path so wheelchair accessible. It was so quick of a trip I forgot to stop recording until we were down the road.

The main reason most folks visit here. Their attraction is about the falls, not the hike. Well worth the trip.
