Nice, short trail with water views. Perfect trail for kids.

Nice trail but nothing too exciting.

Heavily used trail with great views of the falls.

The Falls that cascade over the boulders are beautiful! The trail is very easy. I’ll go again!

Nice wide trail. Nice bridges. We saw dear and hawks. We followed the shorter green path. Had to guess which way to go a couple of times but it wasn’t a big deal. There was a stream part of the way.

Simple trail with some great views. Good start for beginners

Heavy traffic on weekends.

This trail is fun to ride with technical ascends. The only problem with this trail is it can be very easy to become lost due to the fact that the trail at certain spots is not marked well. Overall this is a good trail.

this is a easy well marked trail. also if your hot a great place to cool off.

I have hiked this trail several times with my wife Donna and our dogs (German Shepherd and Shih Tzu). It’s a beautiful area. We all managed the trail easily. We have also canoed the lake and have picnicked by the falls. You aren’t supposed to walk on the rocks or in the water but people being people ignore the signs to cool their feet from the summer heat. It’s very dangerous as their are unseen holes and the wet rocks are extremely slippery. You can easily break a leg or ankle. I helped one lady carrying an infant who stepped in a hole. Be safe.

very nice trail, the signage was a little confusing. I would definitely go again.

I absolutely LOVE this place!! From the trail to the waterfall, it's very beautiful. I love getting in the water and absorbing everything around. It's an amazing place, no matter the season!

Well-marked trail. Combine this trail with the trail across the river for a great hiking day.

beautiful day, trails pretty level, think more for biking, got confused on which way to go, but all in all got steps in and had a good dinner at Buckners!

If you’re hiking with dogs the falls trail might be a bit too much unless the canines are experienced hikers

Great trail. Tons of single track for mountain bike game.

Beautiful area with well-maintained trails. I managed to get off of the red trail by accident, but found my way back after a "side adventure". (The trails are marked, so this was purely human error.) The trail has a couple of steep sections and a creek crossing, so I'll take a pair of trekking poles next time. Overall, this is a fun, quick hike that has great views of the falls.

This trail was fun. It was overcast today so we didn't get to take our time as much once the thunder started. I loved the peace and quiet and the sounds of the water and rapids as we walked. We will definitely be back.

Absolutely beautiful park. Went 1, 2, 10, 9, 8, 17, 12, 18, 19 to 20. Hikes 6.2 miles in 2h 52m. Exhausted by the end, but felt great. Can't wait to build up stamina and hike further.
Can't wait to hike this park again.

Nice hike, narrow trail in some places with steep inclines. We heard songbirds and saw wildflowers. Plenty of spider webs, found an old stick to clear the path. Also saw poison ivy next to the path, so watch out for that.

Nice. Love that there are benches to rest on...added to my total time but was nice for helping with the steep inclines.
There were some nice sized trees down in the trail that might be a problem for some hikers.
