Great scenic hike with a ton of views to see and explore. The trail is easy and please take the second loop on the trail. You don’t want to miss the second waterfall along with a large shallow cave! You can walk inside the cave while being right behind the waterfall.

My wife and I completed this trail on a 35 degree (at most) day and for the first time on this trail, plenty of water was flowing over the falls. And, due to the cold temps, plenty of ice at the bottoms of the falls. This is one of my favorite hikes in terms of scenery, bluffs, cliffs, rock faces, and similar. Absolutely beautiful area. Overall, this is a easy to moderate trail with only a handful of sketchy areas for the really young or old. Exploring around and off the trail is what makes this trail so fascinating! See our photos here.

Visited on a Monday morning and only saw two others on the trail. We basically had the whole canyon to ourselves! Very beautiful!

Camping is no longer allowed on this trail. Beautiful hike!

Nice trail, beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, the waterfall was dried up on our visit. There is a single disperse campsite located to the right of the entrance.

Good hike. Great little place and well marked. Just make sure you take at the loop!

Great hike, even without the waterfall running and the creek beds being pretty dry. Definitely take the optional loop when you get too it. The shallow cave at the top is awesome.

Gorgeous views. We actually hiked at Hemlock on a rainy day, and it was a lot of fun.

Beautiful views along the way. Waterfall was a lighter flow than what I was expecting. But still very peaceful, not a crowded trail.

beautiful place to get away from it all.

Been going here for years and it's still one of my favorite places to go in the Southern Indiana Area! Very nice and peaceful place to go and get away from people for a day or two!

Beautiful & just the right length to take my mom on her first hike. Most beautiful after a rainfall so one can see the waterfall in action.

My husband and I stopped at a campsite in Hoosier on the way back from Shawnee and the camp host told us we HAD to hike this while we were in the area. She was right! This was an amazing hike and although the trail is on the shorter side, you can spend hours here checking out the caves, waterfalls, streams and rock formations. Unfortunately the falls were kind of a trickle when we were there, but that made the streams fairly dry which isolated little pools full of life, there were fish, crayfish, salamanders. Absolutely take the little optional loop halfway through which takes you to an awesome cave.

Awesome trail! Easy to walk, even a couple waterfalls! will go again!

Excellent day hike. Go after a rain shower for the best experience. Winter time is also cool with frozen waterfalls!

Amazing time in what feels like a gully from Sleeping Beauty. Great views and some added difficulty if you want to climb the cliffs. Enjoy it!

Extremely pretty short hike with plenty to experience waterfall dense forests. Caves rock formations. It’s very cool for only a bit over 1 mile

Have been to this secluded jewel of a location in the Hoosier National inumerable times. Whether camping or a daytrip I absolutely reccomend this beautiful unique trail to anyone in the area or afar. The far side of the trail conceals an astounding giant cave formation halfway up the cliffs. Love it.

Loved this hike! It was kid friendly but challenged them on some of the off shoots of the trails to climb rocks and explore. We spent about 2 hours getting lost in all the different areas we could safely climb! Loved the views and waterfalls!

This is a beautiful trail and an easy hike. Enjoyed the waterfalls.

50 degree day in January made for a crowd. But this is a beautiful trail and my 4 year old did great!

Easy trail with a couple god climbs and amazing scenery.

Amazing gem that changes with the seasons and weather. I had children from 6-13 and no issues navigating but we do a lot of hiking. A family favorite!

Great trail with two (trickling) waterfalls around 30ft high. Lots to see in such a short trail.

I have done this hike several times and I think the best time does this hike is in the winter when there are the frozen waterfalls. Either way the hike is scenic but way too short.

The falls are almost dried up at this time, down to a few trickles, still about my favorite trail, love the canyon and all the cliff views!

it was amaze-balls.

definitely one of the best places I've been in indiana!! It's been very dry for months now and there was no water anywhere when I was there.
However that allowed me to get to a lot of places that may not have been easily accessed had it been flowing.

not a hard hike at all, a lot of elevation change but nothing too crazy but you definitely need to be able bodied to do the whole loop.

Short scenic hike along a creek that has carved out very cool rock formations and caves. Well maintained trail.

Love this trail. Best to go a couple of days after a good rain so the waterfalls are at their peak. Easy hike and great scenery though the entire hike.
