Nice family hike with family and dog. Waterfall was the best park. Busy, popular spot. Nice for picnics too.

Perfect hiking weather the day we chose to hike this well marked trail. Challenging yet fun trail. Was surprised that we did not see another hiker the entire trek. Well worth checking the trail system out.

The trail wasn't well marked, but it was beautiful in the snow.

Great view of the river below when the leaves are gone.

Ideal for a short hike. The trails are not marked too clearly at times but lots of foliage and great views.

This place is gorgeous! I loved it all. Trails well marked, amazing waterfall! Highly recommend!

Great day!

We picked a perfect day to hike this trail. The trail is well marked but you need to pay attention due to several intersecting trails. We did the trail in 4 hours and 15 minutes.We did not see another soul during the trip,

Absolutely lovely

Was more slick then I anticipated, especially the scramble up the hill to the Devil's Oven. Markers for the first mile or so on the loop if you go clockwise are almost nonexistent.

fun trail , many variations if you want it to be longer, takes about 30 mins of a moderately steep climb to get to the view .. saw lots of wild life taking some side trails back!

Cool place

Too many 3-minute hikers, noise, and picnic pieces. Skip unless winter.

The red trail takes you to the waterfall and overlook - the two must-sees here.

Backpacked through this in one day. My original intention was to use this as a testing ground to see how well I'd do with backpacking. For a first time hike with an extra 40lbs worth of backpack, I'd say it was difficult. Without the added weight I would guess that this would have been a fairly easy trail. There is a long portion of gravel road in the middle that does get a little boring, but for what I wanted to learn I'd say this was an excellent hike.

I wish I could give this a 3.5 stars. It's nice, not great, no outstanding features but the fern beds everywhere are nice. You're also very unlikely to see anyone else while you're out there.

Our family followed the white trail to the red trail. A couple of semi-challenging inclines for kids and out of shape mommies. Beautiful scenery and water sounds.

Well marked trail. There are some steep areas on the trail that would be hard for younger kids.
