Nice downhill walk out to the two overlooks. The climb back out from the right overlook is probably moderate. Overall a good hike.

If you found a waterfall on this trail you was on the wrong trail, there is no waterfall on the cliff side trail. There is in fact the Hemlock trail that runs along the right that goes down to two waterfalls. Black fork and marsh fork falls, but neither are even near cliff side.

Great trail. Easy downhill walk out, uphill all the way back. If you go down to both cliffs, it’s a little tougher because of the rock gardens. Well worth the short hike in the fall just to see the colors. You can mountain bike this, but the final down hill to the cliffs is very difficult.

My new favorite trail. It's definitely not easy unless you turn around before you get to the viewpoints. It has two beautiful viewpoints at the end and a steep climb back up from them.
