easy hike well traveled trail it was no one there when we arrived but quickly became crowded so go early.

This use to be one of my favorite waterfalls but they had it roped off at the bottom of the stairs so you couldn’t walk out and chill on the rocks anymore.

A lot of fun

This hike is relatively short (about two miles round trip), and fairly crowded, but it is absolutely beautiful. There are a lot of steps, especially near the beginning, so it may be a bit challenging for someone who is new to hiking in the mountains. It was also pretty muddy in several places.

This is a fun and easy hike. We saw a number of multi-generational families enjoying the trail today. Definitely suggest adding the Hooker Falls hike to this loop. Hooker Falls has the best place to get in and enjoy a short but cold swim. Wear closed-toed shoes fir the hike though. The gravel is killer.

This trail was great! A little longer than expected. Also Holly Trail was closed last week so we weren’t able to get back to our car that way. We had to walk by the highway to get to the parking lot. But other than that, it was a great workout. Now that we’re more familiar with the way, we will definitely be going back!

Nice trail. Lots of uphill and some mud but worth the view at the end

Great little trail! Short but very pretty with several footbridges & stream crossings. Big waterfall at the end. More steps than I expected but kids will be motivated by the scenery & adventure.

Beautiful area! It’s a great place to spend a day and wade in the water. Can be crowded but if it’s a rainy day there’s hardly anyone there. The waterfalls are gorgeous after a good hard rain.

Great short hike with a pretty little waterfall kids or dogs can play in!

Beautiful waterfalls. Very popular hike

Easy hike, even for our kids and little dog. Well marked and maintained trail!

Fantastic, great hike with incredible views.

This trail is beautiful to walk on there are a few lookouts that you can stop at along the way. I when to little bald mountain also which branches off from buck spring trail. It is a little steep but well worth it as the summit is amazing.

Beautiful scenic hike with easy to navigate/clearly marked paths. We hiked all the way up to the covered bridge at High Falls with our 5 and 7 year old. Definitely a workout - but so worth it!

beautiful

Nice trails even in the rain. BTW there are clean;ish) port a potties!!!

Pretty easy trail but highly trafficked. Viewing points of the waterfalls where pretty awesome. Trail is really well kept.

This was a very easy and short walk. There is a little fishing pond and there are fish here. The water is so clear you can see the fish swimming halfway across the pond, with the right lighting.

There is a picnic shelter and it would be a great place to take the kids for a little outing.

Nice loop hike. By going clockwise, the incline is moderate, and the final 2 miles are generally down but a bit of a challenge. Quite a few stream crossing, and the sound of the two creeks are audible even when the water is not in view. A perfect moderate hike!

Trail was easy to hike with 4 kids ages 3-9. Most of the trail is gravel, so we kept getting it in our keens. We recommend boots or athletic shoes to prevent that. Pretty views. No suitable place for little kids to enter and play in the water.

Clean, easy trail with an awesome river view and steps that take you down to the base of the falls for a nice close up of this beauty. It can get crowded, especially in the spring and summer months...early morning or late afternoon hike is recommended.

Short/quick, easy hike that is great for children and dogs. This trail is popular and usually crowded but a beautiful spot overall.

Beautiful views! Great to combine this trail with High Falls and Hooker Falls.

A well-manicured and often over-populated trail to a stepped falls. Not as impactful as High Falls, but a nice easy hike for families. Go early in the day or late to avoid the masses.
