Nice, easy, well-maintained trail. The only drawback is its proximity to the highway & residential area. The falls are beautiful, but the opposing bank is private property and your view will include several houses. The trail gets quite close to route 3 gets very loud.

Great trail for kids. Did it with a 2,4,6,8,11 years olds and they walked the whole time.

It was a beautiful trail on a lovely Fall day. Not well marked but you need to get a picture of the map before you go in so you know which trail you are going on, otherwise you’ll end up backtracking like us a few times and add a lot more distance on the hike. I’d go back just so I could see the parts I didn’t get to.

Beautiful area and great hike as far as views and difficulty. A few inclines and such to get the heart rate up. But, After a short time the trail markers are really hard to find. Super easy to get off track. Even this app was confusing. With that said, it was worth it. So pretty! Even saw a snake!

The falls are beautiful and there’s several great vantage points. Only the back side of the loop near the Dog Beach got pretty buggy.

Very nice easy trail with a great view of the falls!

Fun and not too hard trail for most the hike about half of it is on more uneven terrain but nothing outrageous. Went with my boyfriend and dachshund. Took us about 2 hours to complete with some stops to give the pup water and take some photos. The ponds are scenic and there are wild raspberries along the trail as well. My only complaint was the trail isn't marked well. You would go a really long time between markers with relatively unmarked trails jetting off of it and then towards the end the trail seemed overmarked. We ended up taking a few wrong turns and adding some to the hike and then a few others that cut some distance.

Nice trail! Needed the app for a lot of navigation, many trail markers missing and long distances in between. Not many options to extend your hike since it’s so close to highways and roads. But nice 2-3 miles and beautiful waterfall!

I would recommend this trail easy to follow signs. Beautiful views. Nice places to swim and cool off after hike. It is also dog friendly. Good trail for beginners and families.

Great trail. It is short but you can make it longer by exploring other trails. Love dog beach and the waterfall. Will definately go again.

Loved this trail! Lots of people walking dogs. One end of trail is very well marked, other end not so much. I met 8 people who were looking for falls on my way out. Steep going down to falls, loose gravel in some spots. Lots of raspberries and blueberries on the trail
