nice and easy trails that lead to a beautiful waterfall!

Not a bad little trail if you want a couple of hours to kill nothing hard about it.

Back to hike the red loop! One pretty steep section, but otherwise a great couple miles in the woods with plenty of stops along the water as you head back upstream toward the falls. Also took a spoke out on a trail marked with bars like the Dutch flag; decided to turn around and head back to the red loop when the trail became too steep for small children.

Very nice setting and great area at the falls to let the pup go on for a swim.

Beautiful view and well marked trails

Little trail run. A lot of tall grass areas with lots of bugs. Good for running motivation, bad for the pup. 4 ticks

Lovely location and the yellow and blue trails were very comfortable for new hikers. The red was a little trickier for someone that struggles going up hill. It's easy enough to go back to the easier path, though. Not too many people to have your own space to relax.

Nice easy walk down to the waterfall. Lots of places to sit by the water, away from the crowds.

Nice, easy hike through the forest. I like starting at yellow and following through to red, uphill for a bit of an easy workout.

Good set of trails. 3 main trails and a number of other unofficial trails.

Watch out if you are trying to go on yellow the whole way the bridges are out so it may be best to avoid for a bit.

The water fall is small, and the water doesn't seem like its suitable for swimming in. The Trails are not difficult, and are good for kids and dogs

Hiked the Red trail today w/ a student. A good workout for her & a good walk for me. Went left at the trail split & the downhill portion was tough for my student. Will go right next time so we get the uphill climb.

Love. Good hiking, foresty, gorgeous water, and the falls are a short hike from parking. If it weren't for the bugs I'd lay around on the mossy banks all day.

Luckily we had a picture of the trails because it got a little spotty right before the falls, and we continued on the yellow instead of back tracking to blue so luckily red connected easily to yellow. Very populated today with lots of dogs (off leashes)

Love this trail! It's wide open and flat. Perfect for young kids. Not ideal for those seeking a workout.
Parents need to be careful near the river as there are several steep drop offs along the edge of the trail. I bring my dog and my mini goats here all the time.

Easy, with beautiful river views. Went in early spring 2017 and was able to easily complete, even with snow still on the ground.
