Such a quick hike down for some amazing views!! I was worried my honda accord wouldn’t make it but did, easy! A family was leaving as we were arriving. Other than that we were out there alone! Although, the hike back up was not easy but so worth it! We found our way up top of the arch and the views up there were even better!

Very easy and short trail. You can make it longer by going on other trails near the main one. It is very, very busy which can take away the beauty of how gorgeous the rock formations and waterfall are. Nonetheless, still a gorgeous hike that I recommended people do at least once!

This is a great trail to hike or run, not too steep and not too long. Lots of different types of trees in this trail which was cool. The trail is also very shaded which is great for hiking in hot weather but there are not a lot of views on the hike. I went on a Saturday and while the parking lot was pretty full, I only saw maybe 4 or 5 groups that we passed on the loop aside from the parking lot. I think a lot of folks were just hanging in the park.

Great little trail - watch out for raccoons!

Fun hike. Lots of rocks to climb. Great view on top.

This was a great day hike full of gorgeous views. At one point, however, I had to cross a creek and there was no way to get across without stepping in the water an so my boots got all wet. There were 2 challenging hills that were very satisfying once I made it to the top. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Happy hiking, everyone!

Definitely a great and memorable hike!

Very beautiful hike, unfortunately not kid friendly at all. Very muddy and definitely not easy. It was worth it to see the caves and waterfalls!!

great hike. lots of fun and easy to find. GPS trail wasn't accurate (I thought) but the trail was well marked and the falls were gorgeous!

Beautiful waterfall at the beginning (or end - however you want to do it) !! We went after it had rained so it was very muddy just fyi. The rest of the trail goes through the woods and it is very peaceful. Very steep incline at first - great workout!

May 2020. I made it up the (dry) road just fine in a small 2WD low clearance sedan-type car with normal tires. Just be careful, go slow and let faster cars pass you! It’s a make your own adventure place, no specific trail to follow besides the hill if you want to climb it for the view. Definitely want to come back and explore more!

i had been looking forward to this trail for some time and while it was beautiful, it was flooded, muddy, and washed out in a few areas. Would definitely love to go back when things dry up a bit but I heard Lake Michigan has been on the rise so the wet conditions may be here to stay.

Hot and busy. Good hike. Drank approximately 13 bottles of water...maybe less. Saw someone swimming in underoos in the green, stagnant water. The rope climb was neat.

Beautiful trail, fun with my 8 year old. Lots of rain over the last few days meant lots of mud.

Hiked in the morning on Memorial Day and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was a bit muddy, but that’s to be expected near a waterfall and especially with recent rain. We followed some good advice to go down the stairs first and come back up the far side with the switchbacks — to go clockwise around the loop essentially. Look forward to going back again!

Went at sunset and the views were unreal. We luckily had the canyon all to ourselves. The trail is so easy if you just follow the app. We took a wrong turn and quickly noticed and backtracked. Not hard at all. Barely a scramble for the last 5 minutes. Great sunset hike. I’m on Instagram @cyndila if you want to know more :)

A fairly steep trail to the top, but once you get there... WOW what amazing views! There are plenty of benches along the route for the Wayfairer in need of a break. I recommend taking the small trail off the side to head back down once you reach the top. It’s very secluded with the best views of the hike.

The best! One of the most amazing places I’ve ever been!

Great loop, several water crossings, beautiful views. Trail was a little difficult to pick back up after one creek crossing by the bluffs (where people camp) but it was found (straight up a hill). Trailhead said 2.9 miles, I clocked 5 (was a little exploring but not 3 miles worth)

Fun well marked trail. Follow rocky glen signs from parking lot up to the stream. At stream go right to waterfall area and left to coal mine. Some parts cross through shallow creek so wear appropriate footwear. Peaceful hike close to the city

This is a really fun trail. Consistent incline on the way up. You can continue all the way to Mariposa Reserve and an old Native American site. Be wary of poison oak, specifically at the base of the trailhead where many hikers head towards the Blackstar falls. I wasn’t so careful - learn from my mistake and enjoy!

Look— I’m sure the trail is great. And the road there is pretty. But my friend and I just spent 2 hours trudging through snow to get to the trail head because the road is impassible. It was psychological torture. Every three feet we fell waist deep in the snow. If you want to make the treck, you need snowshoes and a car that is able to handle off-roading conditions. Or, just wait until all the snow melts.

Great trail. Something we came across last minute. The views were perfect. Clear water is available while hiking near the shore a small cave was found on the way back. Lots of shade when hiking up the trail, very rocky. https://youtu.be/lo-_3zk5d1E

Great trail- we decided to go up the more adventurous side first and take the easy way down. I tell you what, definitely a nice workout. Very steep in some spots , but absolutely worth every bit of the work.
