Nice views, but the "hike" was not very challenging.

Very easy walk, hard to even call this a hike. Beautiful waterfall. We went around sunset and only saw a few people

Very limited parking at the trail entrance so just be aware. Good trail overall and the view is totally worth the hike. Some parts are very washed out so weary with smaller kids. Also, just keep following the yellow markers to keep on path.

Great little hike with awesome view of the gorge and Table Rock. When you reach the top, there are a few side trails (may be hard to see in spring/summer) that lead you down to the rock face.

The hike to the top is fairly easy until the trail splits where a sign tells you to go left to hawksbill (not sure where it takes you if you choose to go right). The trail gets considerably more difficult from this point but is maybe only a quarter mile long so very doable. Views at the top are amazing and worth the hike. Not crowded at all either.
