Beautiful trail. The trailhead is not marked very well and is across the road from the parking lot next to a residence. Very boring for the first mile or so. Lots of spider webs so use a stick to knock them down. Abt a mile in it gets much prettier and lush. Gorgeous rock formations. Slick in spots. Good for kids just keep an eye on them. The falls were beautiful with a lil sandy beachy area. Talk falls that land in a rock pile so you can’t get under them really. Not really enough water underneath to wade in but I guess sometimes it would be a good I swimming hole to splash in with a sandy bottom. Headed out is mostly uphill. We did not see a single person on our hike on a beautiful Sunday in October so I’d say this trail is not frequented much.

We did the full 6+ mile loop. The trail is great and we'll maintained. Be prepared to wade through at least one creek. There was only one spot that was a little confusing but if you look closely you can tell which path is more well traveled.
As a side note after hiking some other local trails I'd rate this as more of a Moderate difficulty as there is some good climbs towards the end if you're going clockwise around the trail.

Hiked this trail on 9/13/18, it was a good trail, not difficult, well marked and had some cool rock formations. We had the place to ourselves, we didn't see a single other person the whole day.

This was a good easy hike. You have two off path overlooks, the first without barrier. The views are amazing.

Absolutely beautiful trail. Incredible rock formations, beautiful wild flowers, gorgeous falls. It's well marked and maintained. It took us just under four hours, and that's including an hour and a half at the falls. The shade is great too! Take a stick because we went through at least 30 spider webs!

Over all good trail, easily marked and only some small elevation changes. beautiful falls at the end. It rained on and off for two days before my trip. Great flow and amazing sound.

Very cool trail and scenery. We only walked to arch-did not do whole loop.

It was a great hike. Fairly easy for the experienced. Enjoyed the mini falls to the right of the trail on the way to princess falls. The only thing I wish was different was the amount of trash that we found on the trail.

Overall I really enjoyed it and would go back. Very beautiful!

Staid the night next to the falls!!! Was one of the best night sleeps on a trail I’ve had!!!

We’ve hiked this trail several times and love it! Very pretty in the fall and spring. Hiked about 1/2 mile in today, though and saw fresh bear marks on the trail. We just turned around and headed back out!

Good Family trail. Took my 11yr old that has a weak lower trunk and Autism and my 4yr old. Neither had any issues walking this trail. The scenery is amazing. God's creation is just breath taking.

Fantastic hike! I think the mileage may be off by a mile. The rock formations are amazing and the falls are pretty with a nice sandy beach to sit and admire them. My dogs had a great time playing in the water. We didn't see anyone there - except for a bear! The trailhead was slightly confusing because it forked at the beginning with no signage. It looks like there may have been a sign there once. Anyway, go right.

Nice, easy hike. Princess Falls wasn't rolling very big today but still beautiful. I would love to go back in the fall.

It’s about a mile trek to the trail head. The start and end is a 1/4 mile of stairs. The first mile afterwards is a bit overgrown. There’s a nice rock cavern to take a quick break in a mile and a half in. 4 miles in, theres a really nice creek crossing if your hiking with dogs. You’ll actually cross the creek several. Times. Nice hike. The last stairs up are a killer and we ended up with picking off ticks from ourselves and the dogs, but a really nice hike. From the parking lot, the trek ended up being just over 7 miles

Beautiful Waterfall!

first few miles was good but it got hard with big rocks steep hills and some places I had to almost just carry my bike several down trees and creek crossings , some great rock formations along the way trail marked pretty good but one place after you get to a gravel area I lost it but if you stay to the right going from the church direction you be good got to the end and rode the road back to the church took 2 hours 45 min on trail and 57 min back on road.

Very hard trail for a bike a lot of hike-a-bike trail was marked Well but one place you come to a gravel place the trail is up the hill to the left and stay down the hill

Water falls and water crossings everywhere you look!

Easy trail with a few steps. Beautiful overlook and then an easy walk to under the arch. Good for a quick adventure

Nice hike. Water was raging so we didn't get to Lick creek falls. The recent rainfall had the water running over the rock houses which was extremely photo worthy!

With all the rain we've been getting, this Falls is beautiful right now. Lots of small cascades and waterfalls along the way too. But wear waterproof boots....its very soupy. Most of the trail has water on it.

Quick and easy out and back trail. Great place for first time hikers that are wanting to get started. I would suggest this hike during October as the leaves are changing.

Fairly easy trail. Arch is worth seeing, other cool geological formations. Best view of arch is during late fall-early spring.
