I didn’t mind the gravel road. It follows a ridge line through the woods and was very pleasant. We combined this hike with Star Arch which made a 6.25 mile hike. It was easy walking with staircases for the few steep sections. Some views of Courthouse Rock and nice views from the arch.

It was definitely difficult this time of year. Most of the hike was muddy and slick with all the fallen leaves, but the views of red river were amazing!! My second time doing this trail and will definitely do it again.

great hiking trail! i want to go back and do the super loop which this is part of.

nice trail. follow creek to falls. trail was covered with leaves and hard to follow at times but just follow creek to falls.

my favorite trail. I love cloud splitter. it is all up hill and hard to climb through the rock but awesome hike

Great for a day hike.

Its a good day hike. Trail is well marked and maintained but not a lot of great views. Cozy little campsite at the next to the river. Didn't see any wildlife when I went.

Great go to trail-does get pretty wet when it rains, but it is easy and well marked- I never feel uncomfortable hiking it alone.

My husband and I completed this hike on 11/3/18. Beautiful fall foliage, crowded place, limited parking, lots of doggies, and not a super easy hike. It's best if you go in and out on the same trail nearest to the bathrooms. The waterfall is gorgeous and the hike is beautiful. I would do it again. I wouldn't recommend going if it's rainy or snowy, it might get very slick.

Depends on what you’re looking for. This trail had nice scenery, especially when I went in the fall. I can’t say much else for it though. There was a lot of trash and people. Add that to the noise from the interstate and other traffic and it wasn’t ideal. Good for a walk if you’re in the area but not for me.

Nice mix of woods and ridge line. Pretty good climbs on back half on way to Pinch em Tight. The arch itself is great.

We did this hike on a weekday in late October so crowds were not an issue.
The trail was much better than expected with great views and the Arch was very striking. There was a fair amount of uphill in the way out.
The Kommer ridge and Rough trail afforded us some great views and overlooks if the gorge.

Short but I'd consider it hard and not moderate. The inclines were pretty steep, although they did have tree roots as makeshift steps. I'll do it again but be better prepared next time!

made the trip in just over 3 days. Was my first longer distance trail. The North end is well marked and maintained, lots of great views. on the North end there are more bluffs but it's not terribly difficult. After you pass Golden pond heading south the trail gets rough fast. It's not very well marked and the horse traffic had it tore up fairly bad. Also watch for unmarked horse trails...I got turned on to one and got lost for a while. The shelters along the way are primitive but a welcome sight every night. Overall it was a great trail and I would definitely do it again.

nice view and good hike for afternoon with the family. It's a good little hike

Loved it! It is a very beautiful place!

Nice park. Trails definitely run close to the road, but pretty nonetheless.

Was a fairly difficult hike with a 40lb pack on my back but was beautiful and worth spending the night. October 2018

Beautiful in the early spring. Note there are multiple starting points for this trail. The longest is around 10 miles

Beautiful brisk hike. Little muddy, not too bad. The springs and waterfalls were low. Still amazing. Love this place. I hike it 3-4 days a week.

beautiful hike, loved the waterfalls.we did meet a lot of college students along the way but all were very nice and respectable acting just enjoying nature like the rest of us.

Fabulous view and up close feel for the Palisades.

This trail is not easy. Extreme elevation changes.
