While still a great hike, be aware that there has been some damage to parts of the trail due to recent heavy rains. There's significant evidence of mud and debris slides throughout the area and and exposed red clay mud areas especially along the first half mile or so of the trail. I would also rate the trail as moderate, not easy, due to 3-4 steep lengthier climbs. Pants are advised for anyone sensitive to poison ivy, as there was plenty bordering parts of the trail. Would definitely do it again despite the obstacles. Saw white bee balm and several other wild flowers. Enjoyed the boulder area at the turnaround point close to the Narrows.

More difficult then moderate but nice hike.

This is a great hike! I followed the directions on waterfallshiker and had little trouble finding the way. It's largely pretty easy, except for the last half mile or so. The trail is *quite* narrow and tricky right before the waterfall. We had a member of the party who has some balance issues and they took what could have been a pretty nasty fall without someone near to catch them, so be advised of that. The waterfall is so beautiful and the swimming is excellent, if you're inclined to.

The wildflowers were beautiful and loved the fact it stays so close to the river

This trail name doesnt exist. I followed the directions that led me to the gamelands on the green river. they have a map a few yards after the trailhead that is slightly difficult to see due to it being someone's driveway. Park when you cross the bridge, "trailhead" is directly across.

beautiful and fun hike

Trail is not marked and overgrown once you cross the river. Lots of blow down. Water was high, so you cannot cross with dry feet unless you scramble across a downed tree before the crossing. River is beautiful. Not a soul out there today. Packed some found trash out.

Should really be rated difficult. It's really steep up for almost 4 miles, then pretty steep almost the whole way down. Probably wouldn't do this one again, especially not in the winter. Not many views once you got past the river. To me, the hard part of this (Bear Branch and down) wasn't worth the effort.

Beautiful area, however, had to cut it short. It should be written on here that this is a hunting area in the fall/early winter. Encountered a very grumpy toothless old man with a shotgun who was displeased with my presence. Definitely bring bright orange clothing. Also no sign here that says anything about Bradley falls trailhead.

Really nice 8 mile or so hike. Great winter views of nearby peaks. Nice view of lower Narrows section of the Green river.

Beautiful hike along the river. Bear Branch should be rated difficult because of the significant elevation gain. Make sure you have a trail map. Some trail forks can be confusing.

There is a lot more trails in this area than what is on this site. To do a four hour, 7 mile hike begin at green cove, then bluff, then left on turkey gut, then west on spring trail, then west on ridge trail, then south on bear trail, left on puliiam, then left on green cove. The bottom and mid range area is a woodsy trail and the top is logging road with views of the mountains. There are a lot of spider webs and good views of the river. You can get wet in the river.

It is a nice trail, but I would not classify it as easy.

Great hike along the the Green River ending at "The Narrows." Moderate ups and downs, but this place is a poison ivy jungle. It grows everywhere.
