This is a very nice and easy path to talk older parents on who need to take breaks and can't walk up hills. I remember this trail to have benches every so often, where we took a break as my mom was with us. If you're looking for a strenuous hike, this is not the place to come. We came in Oct. 2014.

Great trail along the pipe, 3 waterfalls, very peaceful dirt trail. there is a steep hill trail across the street from the parking area a quarter of a mile to see another water fall. alot of dogs not on a leash but all very friendly

Awesome gorge trail. So glad I got to do this while going to Cornell. Been in summer and fall both were great.

Checked this one out in June of 2017. And this hike doesn’t disappoint! It’s beautiful and moderately well trafficked. Great for all ages. There’s a bit of stairs along the way which are a great way to enter the trail. Awesome views of the falls and rock formations, would definitely go again.

This isn’t really a trail. It’s more of a scenic viewing area. There’s a Little Rock chair right next to the falls situated in the middle of a residential area. But it’s beautiful nonetheless and totally worth checking out. (June 2017)

The falls is fantastic -quick incredible, but this isn’t a hike.It a simple walk to the falls.

Wonderful hike for an afternoon

Loved it! Quite challenging and a great workout! Beautiful place!

not a hike just waterfall

I’ve been here many years ago and have forgotten how beautiful it is. Great hike to get the heart pumping.

We were only able to complete the Gorge trail, the Rim portion was blocked off at the trail head. Beautiful scenery and great start of fall colors (though I'm from the Gulf Coast and we don't get any fall colors so I was easy to please).

This is a short, flat walk to the waterfall at the swimming hole. If you're in the park to hike the gorge, it's worth the visit to this waterfall as well.

Too many people and not keeping their dogs on a leash. Twice our dog was attacked because of this

Awesome 4.5 mile trail. Took me about 2 hrs with plenty of stops- so many waterfalls and views along this trail.

Not a bad hike at all. Pretty easy both ways. Dogs loved it as well!
