Upper falls trails are closed for repair. The lower trail is narrow. Most people did NOT wear a mask, which made it uncomfortable going up and down.

The lower half of the falls was closed today for our hike. Mostly a road hike until you get almost to the upper falls. Can’t rate this much higher because of that fact and that we didn’t see the lower falls not being accessible. Will try again another time and maybe change my rating. Upper falls were very pretty though!

Such an amazing adventure this trail was. Took my 5 month old pup on his third hike along with my 9 year old son. We had the best time. Started at the upper falls and did the loop along with several steep short cuts back to the parking lot. Can’t wait to do this trail again!

I agree with the other reviewer‘s before me. This is definitely an easy trail that is really more about seeing the views at the end than the journey itself. Great for families or casual hikers. My son and I hiked this side first only to discover that there are only upper level views on this side. If you want a view from the other side and to see the falls from the bottom of the gorge, take the trail to the left of the visitor’s center.

I prefer to call this a roadside path than a trail. Lol. Most of it is a wide gravel path leading to a small waterfall. Heavily travelled. It’s meh.

Awesome trail. I preferred the left fork which went down to the base of the falls. Started at 8:30am and the trail was pretty quiet

Great trail, especially the first half. Hiked it clockwise. Took wrong trail at Hunt Fish Falls and for a rigorous up and back which extended our loop. A few good crossings after that but the ascent to Bee Mountain and descent down was tough and not particularly “fun”. Last half very overgrown and not marked. Trail is much longer than advertised. In future would hike through to HFF, then backtrack and pickup Timber Ridge to circle back to main trail.

Go right at the fork for a pretty easy trip that is well manicured and offers a view of the falls from above. Left if the fork is much steeper and rockier... might be difficult for people who have less mobility or young children, but the payoff is amazing! You can really feel the poser of the falls.

We LOVED this trail. The water is ice cold to swim in but worth it. Our kids are younger (4+6) and even though this is a distance they have hiked before the terrain was more difficult for them (roots, stones) and they were worn out by the end. We will take them back next summer and see how they do because we loved it so much!

Great moderate hike. We did the loop starting with upper falls and ending with lower falls. We had to cross the creek twice and did get our feet wet in the process. A great day!

For this trail, it’s more about the destination than the journey. The trail is wide and heavily trafficked. On a Monday in June the falls viewing area was crowded. I expect it is one of the most popular places in the area.

Lovely trail. Steep grades going in and out. Worth going to river and have a lunch.

I highly recommend this trail. The waterfall area was my favorite, Enjoy a quick nap on the rocks as the mist sprinklers from the waterfall on you as well, it is very therapeutic by offering stunning nature views. People on the trail were very friendly so, don’t forget to pass on the smiles by brightening everyone’s day and reflect positive energy on the hikers

Started to do the out and back, but turned it into a loop due to the crowds along the River. Some peaceful areas on the river were beautiful, but a lot of campers along the river and day trippers at the Hunt Fish Falls. Took Timber Ridge and Lost Cove creek back. Very peaceful trail with no one else on it. It is NOT marked so make sure you down load the map or it will be easy to miss the turns.

the waterfalls are beautiful but we went on a Saturday and it seemed this was the hanging out place for many young people. They were drinking and smoking, it totally took away from the natural experience. A good hike though, just not quiet or relaxing.

This was an easy walk. Great for children. The view was beautiful. The trail was clean and wide. Unfortunately the visitor center is pretty run down, there are porta johns in the parking lot but bring your own toilet paper because every stall was out. Aside from that, it was a great easy walk. Tip: we didn’t find picnic tables so we sat on the ground near trail head. Later, we found a separate area with tables a bit farther down the blue ridge parkway.

There is no way this trail is actually easy. Going down sure it is, but it's all down, so it's a steep all back up. Once you reach where the trail splits it's easy to lose your way on the way back..Look for a sign called Pine Gap and that will assure you where your trail heads because it's easy to pass it by. Pace yourself on the way back!

Very beautiful waterfall & swimming hole. super easy trail. Yes the trail crosses the river so might be hard during high rain. It was not a problem for us
