Very accessible hike with incredible falls along the way. The elevation gain is all in a very short party of the trail, side from that it was easy going. We hiked all the way to Hooker Falls which was a little disappointing after seeing High Falls and Triple Falls it did look like a nice place to swim when a bit warmer though.

The river bend trail is not a flat trail good for walking. It looks like they are planning a trail there but it’s not ready yet.

The rest of the trails are great. Mostly packed dirt. Was nice to get down to the base of the falls and crawl on the rocks. Nice place to sit and have a snack. Lots of people had their dogs.

Got caught in a hale storm. Just shows you have to go prepared. All in all, great day!

Loved hiking this trail! Extremely well marked and a highly trafficked area. We got there around 7:45am and we were the only people there. By time we left around 11, the parking lot was full of cars. Really enjoyed all the different waterfalls!

A beautiful day hiking Triple Falls, High Falls and Hooker Falls. Incredible views.

I feel this was morr towards moderate than difficult, but by no means easy. It's flat in the beginning and then there is a left and you go uphill for a while. Amazing views, well worth the effort.

Easy hike with smooth trail. Be wary of bikers

This is a awesome hike and very beautiful falls

Easy trail and with a sweet little falls that empties into a pool of water before it rushes out into a rather loud fast flowing river.

We went today and absolutely loved it. So peaceful and lots of off trail places to stop and relax by the water. It was gorgeous!

Very beautiful and easy hike. The waterfalls are very beautiful, make sure you stop for a little while at each of them just to enjoy them. It was very quiet when I was there, but I assume it will be very busy in summer. Lots of places to swim as well. Definitely coming back in summer!

Absolutely beautiful! Trails are wide and very nicely maintained. Moderate is an appropriate rating for this trail due to elevation changes and steps. This was moderately busy on Saturday afternoon in January. Nice little visitor center with helpful park ranger. Nice clean bathrooms.

Beautiful falls, we hiked to High Falls when the temperature was at 20 degrees. There was a lot of ice on the falls and it was snowing. Nice hike,

Easy n busy but beautiful

So so hiking trail but looks like a great biking trail. Be alert for bikers

Some beautiful views and just about the right challenge for really young kids.

Easy short hike along a wide trail. Comfortable for walking two abreast. Will come back with a picnic lunch when the weather is warmer

Easy and beautiful trail leading to some beautiful falls. Have hiked this trail several times during different seasons.

Nice easy hike, that’s dog friendly. But you won’t be doing this hike alone, lots of traffic. The waterfalls make it worth wild. Triple falls is nice but you have to go to high falls to get your moneys worth. It’s categorized as medium difficulty but most people would call it easy. The trail appears to be an old service road of sorts. There is one section that has a bit of an incline but otherwise its not much of a challenge, not even for a novice like myself.

Definitely one of my favorite hikes

Nice trail with a slight climb to a fire pit and wooden bench seating. Easy for young kids. Very secluded, but not terribly scenic.

We parked right at the trail head in a small clearing at the end of Bowen Blvd. You’ll feel like you’re in the wrong place, but keep going - you’ll get there.

Highly trafficked, touristy, easy for kids! Amazing views. If you are looking to actually hike this is not the trail... very accessible for anyone.

Amazing views!

A fave. Great Easy kid friendly hike

Two great falls in a short hike.

Nice quiet trail; great for biking too; lovely waterfall at the end.

great trail for kids

Lovely on a warm November day! This park is incredibly well maintained. Beautiful views everywhere!

Total solitude and nice view from the top were the best things about the hike. A good part of Geyer Trail (didn't know the name until I saw on sign at top) was deeply rutted. There was a sign for Jim Redd trail at the top and I decided to take that back out as another hiker had mentioned it was slightly longer. I didn't know it led to another trail head and had to turn back a little over a mile later when it ended at a highway. So I hiked 4 miles rather than 1.5 but that was fine. Fresh scat and small bear paw print made hike more interesting.

Easy trail and nice short hike if you just want to get out for a couple hours. Nice falls at the end. Not very busy, only a couple hikers and bikers seen on the trail.

I love this place. It’s beautiful. Of course if you go during days when everyone is off it’s going to be busy.
