Very nice and easy walk, we met a group of 10 year old kids in a school trip.
Don't be lazy and walk to all 3 spots, the one at the end (the highest) has some amazing views of the entire area.

Such a beautiful falls area with many different views. It was quite exciting to trek down to the basin and wade around it! Rock jumping and exploration is fantastic here! Hike is fairly simple to all views and locations! Can’t wait to take my pups back!

Amazing view. Worth the hike. Limited parking. Very few hikers on trail

Love this place!

Was a little too much water to do falls with kids today but would try again

Very beautiful. One of my favorite places to see. Easy to walk through and great pictures taken ! Camped out right next to the streaming water - must go !

This is a sweet trail. Fairly easy. Great views of Grandfather Mountain linn cove viaduct

Easy trial (even though it was muddy and slick), beautiful falls

love this loop! nice elevation change, multiple water crossings, 2 documented on trail waterfalls and a few more if you like to bushwack. get your hike on

short easy well worth it-must do every season. first 1/4 mile or so is uphill and rocky but not as steep as harpers falls. then coast 1.5 to beautiful views

stop at the visitor ctr and get the map, there is about 5 miles of easy trails here including a second little waterfall. spend a couple hours wandering and having lunch at the base, perfect way to start the day

Another short and sweet hike to a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole. Popular spot, always busy. nice little loop

Challenging beautiful trail!! We did several of the trails in the area.

Loved it! Not too strenuous but still burned some calories. View at the end well worth it. Some kind souls have placed logs on the WRONG paths, obey them. Beautiful view at the end.

Excellent views! Easy trail!

A much needed hiking reprieve after doing Grandfather Mountain the day before. This trail and the waterfall views were well worth the couple of small hills. Not terribly crowded on the sunday that we went but I could see it being very popular especially in the summer.

Hiked all the way down to the bottom of the waterfall. Absolutely gorgeous hike. Steep incline in some areas but family friendly!

Beautiful and easy hike. Be ready for the stairs but the rest is easy.

Cool rock formations and views at the end. Moderate is accurate because of the beginning and end, both are steep, but the rest is pretty flat and easy.

Fun trail with lots of views of the falls.

Easy quick trail with beautiful scenery.

Beautiful falls! The trail leading to the bottom of the falls is really nice to take in great views and sounds! Did this hike with small kids (3,7) and they loved it!

Great hike. Will definitely do again when the water is lower.

Really nice! Easy parking and quick to get on the trail. I did this hike alone and felt very safe. It’s moderately trafficked but not too busy. At each of the overlooks I had the area to myself. So pretty and not too challenging.

Always enjoyable. This is turning into a default area for us.

Nice little hike. The kids and dogs enjoyed it.

Awesome!!! Yes... there is some difficulty involved - steep climbs, rocks and stairs BUT the falls are just incredible. Such awesome views.
WATCH YOUR KIDS! It can be extremely dangerous for any little one that you have difficulty keeping under control.

Amazing place to hang out or hike. There are so many different viewpoints and trails here in this area that you can see something different everytime. My favorite trail is the one leading down to the bottom of the falls. Its a tough little hike, but worth it for sure. Love this place.

Definitely worth the hike. Pretty easy and breathtaking
