definitely a good work out and the end result is well worth it. just beware of the overgrown area that you have to duck through for about 40ft. and there are diamond back rattle snakes so be careful. otherwise a great hike.

Scenic, heavy foot traffic, beautiful waterfalls.

We hiked this trail today and my 8 year old loved it. High Falls is very impressive, especially after all the rain they have been getting in the area. The base was closed because of it, but still the view from the trail was stunning. It’s a pretty easy hike and the trail is very well maintained. Definitely recommend the hike!

Hooker Falls Trail leads to a popular swimming area at the base of the falls and is only minutes from the parking lot. The parking lot is unimproved dirt and is medium sized so it fills quickly. (I was almost the first car in the lot when I got there and after hiking Hooker-Triple-High Falls the lot was packed and cars lined both sides of the road.) Hooker Falls is really just a first stop before doubling back and heading up to Triple Falls and High Falls, which are really the main attractions.

A great kid friendly trail with beautiful waterfalls.

short walk, nice small falls, good place for swimming and kids. lots of people there on a hot summer day because of easy access and short walk to parking.

Nice easy hike that leads to a really cool swimming hole. Unfortunately got caught in the rain, but would normally be an awesome spot to hangout!

Awesome hike! Beautiful and easy! My husband, 3 year old son, and I completed this trail. Well worth the drive.

One of the best swimming holes around!

Short walk to hooker falls. An amazing spot to just chill. A lot of people had floats and coolers with them.

Easy hike to a pretty water fall. Good access to other hikes as well.

amazing

Gorgeous and peaceful. Hiked with a 2 month old in a carrier and 4 year old through Hooker Falls and Triple Falls and everyone had fun!

Lovely, easy walk to great little waterfall. Good for families. Make the effort to walk back towards the Falls. Great paddling. Went midweek so it wasn't busy at all.

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

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

Super easy, short trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end. Not very busy on a fall weekday, but I’m sure it gets crowded during the summer.

My small children handled this short trail easily. Great waterfall!

This one definitely gets your heart pumping! Approximately the first half mile is an easy walk through the woods, and then it's all uphill from there. The last leg of the trail on the hike to the summit is strenuous, but only for about one tenth of a mile. When you get to the top, take a left to get to the overlook. The only part of this trail that I did not like is the overgrown "clearing" that you briefly walk through. It is so overgrown that it's really difficult to be aware of your surroundings l and to keep an eye out for wildlife.

Very accessible and relaxing. Nice pool of water at the bottom for kids to swim in.

Pretty area, very heavily trafficked. Nice end of the day swimming pool
