You just have to hike this trail! Just do it!
We hike north to south, all downhill.
This is one of those hikes that words cannot properly describe.

A simple hike out and back along the northern section of Seneca lake.
Hike this during a high wind and the waves were crashing along the sea wall. Amazing that the waves were so high on a lake, felt like we were along an ocean seafront.

An amazing place to visit and hike. We hiked many parts of the main trail and the views are spectacular of the canyon and the numerous waterfalls in the park.
Drive to the stops and hike the back trails, you will find some real gems on these hikes. The best falls are the mid falls.

Good but not an easy trail. I would rate as moderate. Loose dirt on some steep inclines near the top. Difficult for our two medium sized dogs to navigate in spots (they needed a boost) with 3-4 foot steep rock faces.

Fun trail. Not too difficult. Great views from the top.

Good trail. Pretty rocky terrain, but nothing too steep. Great views near and at the top.

My niece, beagle/basset and I hiked this Tuesday. It was far from where we live, but well worth the drive! Beautiful view at the top and a lot of interesting sites along the trail!!!

Great day lots of trials

There's a lot more to it then the map shows, lived near it for years, there's a whole second part of the park with trails

Hiked it on 8/12 and really enjoyed it. It had some strenuous uphill climbs. The trail is a ravine with mud and boulders. We went over to Porter and then finished Cascade. We're 50-ish - in decent shape - and got a great workout. Took us about 5 hours with some chilling on a ledge on Porter and the summit of Cascade.
