great hiking, biking would be tough. The waterfall was dried up, but other reviews say spring is when you get to see the waterfall. It's still worth the hike. beautiful park and trail.

It was a easy hike. Went with our two dogs and our 4 year old who goes on hikes with us. I was bummed that it was so populated and popular when we went but it was beautiful the entire way.

Better as a hiking trail rather than a biking trail. Many technical and scary parts.

Trails were in excellent condition. Took my family which included a 3 month old baby in a carrier and had no issues. Spring is definitely the time to go though if you would like to see the waterfall. In the fall it is just a water pool. Great photo opportunities as well for landscape photographers.

Nice hike through forest and along crow creek. Trail well marked. Not too much increase or decrease in elevation. Hidden falls is aptly named because u have to wade in the water a little ways to see it.

Went late afternoon on Tuesday, 8/6. Trail was well marked, well maintained, and moderately trafficked. Bugs were not an issue. Could use some better views from trail, but for what it was, it’s a great hike.

Great trail, marked well. Our 2,4 & 6 year olds have done it twice.

Great day hike for the family. Lots of traffic on the trail and at the falls. Trail not very clearly marked so make sure you review the route before you leave town because there isn’t very good cell phone service in the area. Barely any water on the falls due to the season, but will definitely come back next spring.

Pretty easy. it's in a state park so you do have to pay $9 to park. A few slight inclines, but nothing strenuous at all.Good shade

Really enjoyed this trail. As an east coast hiker, I’m used to following blazes, but this trail was easy to follow. Didn’t have my boots with me, but only slipped a few times with basic sneakers. I did get in the water to see the falls; while you don’t need water shoes, I’d recommend something to dry your feet for return trip. And bug spray! Wasn’t crowded on a Thursday after work. Will definitely check out other trails in this park on my next trip.

Easy trail with a nice, but small, waterfall. Lots of kids and dogs on the trail.

EXCELLENT and fun trail, with a great reward at the end. Very kid and dog friendly as well. Tough enough to be tired after, but easy enough to still be very enjoyable and take in the beautiful scenery. Highly recommend.

Great hike with a refreshing cool-down! The scenery is beautiful throughout and the falls are a lot of fun! I'd suggest taking clothes you wouldn't mind getting wet or wear a bathing suit under your hiking clothes. As the name suggests, the falls are hidden, so you have to get in the water to see them and get in chest-high water to experience them! I will definitely be going back to see this spot :)

Nice hike early before the heat set in. Wildflowers all throughout, not many people yet. Bugs were a bit annoying but otherwise a nice trail. Didn’t get to see the falls—-would have to wade.

Do it. It’s worth it, the earlier you go the better your chance is for solitude.

Beautiful views. Ideal for cooler days and/or overcast when running. If you like water you got it. Several bridges that over creeks. Busy trail on late morning. It connects to different trails for a more difficult or longer run. Shoes with traction or hiking shoes recommend. Many places to cool off.

Easy to moderate, wear loose clothing and bring water shoes so you can truly enjoy the falls. absolutely beautiful hike!

Lots of kids at the hidden falls but still a nice hike. Good scenery and big rocks to climb

One of my favorite hikes. We went up the Mo Rocka trail this time. Lots of snow and slick in spots, but beautiful weather and overall a relatively easy hike. We did it with 3 kids, all under 7.

This trail is moderate. I wasn't really dressed appropriate for it, I wore sneakers and heavy clothing. There were a lot of beautiful scenery and we saw some wild animals. It was an enjoyable hike.

Just hiked today. Pretty trail with some moderate hills. There's still some snow on the trail and the creek is iced over. The waterfall was not much to see at the moment. All ice and the water flow seems low but it was a fun hike out. I have a terrible ankle so crampons were helpful in a few places just for security. There was one spot around point 7 where I didn't think it was very clear which way to go but just stick with the trail closest to the creek.

Nice trail, definitely on the easy side of moderate. A small bit of snow and ice in the shady areas that was a little tricky, but nothing you'd need spikes for. The waterfall and creek that it feeds into were all frozen solid, but it was still an interesting little hike. Good one to return to in the spring or summer.

This hike is on the easier end of moderate. Some snow on most of the trail, so although spikes aren’t necessarily needed, they are highly recommended. There were a couple falls between myself and a fellow hiker due to slippery snow and mud areas. Gorgeous hike though! Creek/river is still frozen, but in some areas you could hear the water still rushing underneath the ice. That was neat. You can also (very carefully!) walk on the frozen water up to where the waterfall would normally be
