Great hike and three incredible waterfalls in a 2 hour hike can’t be beat!

We arrived @ 4p and there was ample parking. Easy hike. Well-groomed trail. Take the TH out of the south side of p-lot. Go right at first junction. You'll see a sign for horseback riders. Walk until you see a trail break of to the left, marked with 2 large rocks. Follow until you see 2 more large rocks. Go left onto the same trail you started on (you just took a shortcut). You'll see signs for the falls as you progress. Basically keep going left. A small incline to get to the actual waterfall.

super easy trail with a beautiful waterfall! kids ages 6 and 8 loved it, as well as the dog

Careful in the last half mile, very rocky so be sure of your footing.

Labeled as strenuous but really more moderate. Excellent views, worth the hike.

Trail was wide and obstacle free. Paths to get a better view of the Falls was just worn paths by foot traffic and a little dicey. The short trail to Triple Falls was straight down, which means going back up, was straight up. Overall, I agree the hike was moderate. I only started recording when I got to Triple Falls, so you can add on about another mile. Plenty of people had dogs and small children.

Great trail and beautiful waterfalls. Not difficult, but muddy, icy in some areas and very busy even on a cold winter weekend day. I would definitely recommend it for the natural beauty of the multiple waterfalls.

Last of the Mohicans!!! Great trail for visitors. Beautiful sites and waterfalls to be seen. Great for a trail run.

good for kids would be great in summer

I took this little trail in December. I had it all to myself. It’s a nice little waterfall and peaceful place to be outside. Good for families with children.

I had this little gem all to myself one sunny January day in the middle of the week. Jill F below gives a perfect explanation on how to find the trail. It’s not very clear from the parking lot or even the trailhead map. Her directions are right on. I do consider this an easy hike. I’m not sure why people think the end was harder. I will post pics of the trail and which way to go for people curious. The falls were beautiful and peaceful, especially having them all to myself.

Beautiful trail with amazing sites

Check out when in bloom

This was a lovely easy trail with lots to see - waterfall, covered bridge, lake.

Last of the Mohicans 1992 film was shot on this location.

Wide, well maintained trail along the water. Falls are beautiful. Add the Hooker Falls trail for another beautiful falls view and a nice place to sit and enjoy a trail snack. Great trail for newbie hikers and for family treks.

Easy hike but falls area could be dangerous for those who are not sure footed or have hiking shoes that do not grip rocks very well.

Hiked this trail on Christmas day. Easy hike but the falls access could be dangerous for those who are not sure footed, especially those with hiking boots that are not good for gripping rocks.

This is an easy, fairly level walk on a wide, well-maintained trail. At the end, at the base of Hooker Falls, is a wide pool in the river where you can take a cool swim. Lots of people climb on the falls, and some people fall, hit their heads and drown. Don't be one of those people.

Snow/ice definitely made hike harder but still a decent trail.

After this trail, we hiked on to Hooker Falls and Grassy Creek Falls. True total mileage of hike was 6.3 miles. Trail ratings are probably correct but as most of hike was over hard packed snow and ice, difficulty is obviously higher with those conditions. The snow cover truly added to the beauty of the area.

4.5 mile trail not 3.5. View is pretty good but hard to find when you get to the top, especially in the snow. Main downfall with this hike is the horses really did a number on a good portion of the trail which made it extremely rocky, muddy and wet

High Falls Loop Trail is a very beautiful hike but the incline makes it very difficult to do in the snow. Our 10 year old was super excited to see High Falls thought, because they are big, beautiful, and powerful.

The hike is steep in some parts but not for long periods of time. There are many well marked optional routes, like a hike to the covered bridge, a hike to the base and a hike to Triple Falls. The signage even tells you have far for each detour.

Nice hike. More private than other waterfalls in dupont. Good swimming spot as well.

I live just a mile from the trailhead on Old CCC. Hike this trail year round. Makes for a fun out and back day hike. Part of the trail near the end gets very overgrown with brush during the summer but keep pushing past that part to reach the summit. My favorite time to hike this trail is in the winter because it offers better views.

Great swim spot. Love going behind the falls and sliding out on the rock.

Our family hiked this with kids 6,8, and 12. They did great! Beautiful waterfalls!

We hiked to these gorgeous falls for the 1st time today and we fell in love!

We started out at the visitor’s center where Marijane, a very helpful volunteer, gave us a map & went over the hike details. I was glad to be offered a map since at least one review mentioned a poorly marked trail. It turns out that we didn’t need the map at all. The trail is clearly marked with signs at every intersection. I will add here that we have been hiking as a family for over 20 years, so we are well seasoned.

We took the right at the Y, then went to the covered bridge before doubling back to the loop and continuing to High Falls. It was a magnificent sight! The trail continued to Triple Falls where a nice set of wooden steps (approx 100 in all) lead us right onto a rocky shelf at waters’ edge. The staircase had many decks with benches if you need to rest. We followed the loop on around & ventured down to Hooker Falls. The path was very steep but only for a short distance. We retraced the path & joined the loop, walking on the forest side of the trail & ended back at the visitor’s center.

There are bathrooms at the center in addition to several port-a-potties along the trail. There are also many picnic benches spread throughout the loop. This was a great morning hike & if you take your time, even young kids could walk the gravel trail the whole way!

on Red to Blue Loop

Nice hike. We just did it in reverse. Part of the blue trail was closed off by fallen trees but we managed to navigate around them. The two overlooks give a great view. The only waterfall we saw was so small I am not sure it qualifies but still a nice stroll in the woods. My GPS recorded it as 5.64 miles.
