bring lots of water.
we had a great time a group of 11 of us. wow what views.

We loved this trail. The time by the creek and lake is just wonderful. My husband is a very experienced hiker and has hiked all over New Mexico, Colorado, and Montana. We agreed this should be ranked moderate rather than easy. Mostly because of all the places where it's hard to get footing. There's a few inclines, but nothing crazy. Also, I believe this trail is more like 2 miles rather than 1.6. We can't wait to do it again in the fall.

This was a beautiful rim trail. We were the only ones on the trail the day we hiked it. It's not long or hard,....it's beautiful with vistas along most of the trail. Lots of gravel/dirt roads to get to the THD but worth the effort!

Great trail. Some of the best caves and overhanging area I've seen. Get off the upper loop get down there and check it all out.

This was an amazing hike, it was all downhill on the way to the waterfall. I climbed all over the rocks at the waterfall and got amazing views, pictures, and of course experience. The hike back was difficult considering it was entirely uphill. Overall, it was worth it and I would do it again!

beautiful

The hike down is long but mostly downhill. The hike back is uphill and is difficult after you have already spent hours down at the waterfall and climbing all the rocks around it to get good photos. Overall it's very beautiful!

Hike and view were great; road in was terrible.

beautiful short trail, not too busy, only saw 3 other hikers, only part that was strenuous was the incline at the end but it was well worth the effort, beautiful stream and scenic foilage

Great day to be out. Overcast and temps in the low 70s. We did the Cedar Falls trail, then took the Canyon trail where it splits off from the Cedar Falls trail at the little bridge. Followed it to the Boy Scout trail and took it over to the Rock House Cave. From there, we stayed on the Boy Scout trail, crossed Cedar Creek, went up to the overlook and back to the lodge.
The only bad thing it the poison ivy is EVERYWHERE. If you don't like it, you should wait until the fall or winter before going.

I explored a little of this section of the OHT after some heavy rain. Murray and Senyard Falls were both roaring, though I couldn't get very close to Senyard, as crossing the creek was not an option. I popped over to the Rock House (opposite direction from Hare Mtn) - that's a must-see. The rest of the trail was wall-to-wall waterfalls! All those little streams were wet crossings, and the trail is a streambed much of the time. I was completely drenched after just a few miles, but utterly delighted. I wish I'd been up for a longer hike, as the views from Hare Mtn are reportedly spectacular. I'll be back!
