As long as you know it's a tiny trail, it definitely meets expectations! Easy to get around fence and check out the falls up-close. Unfortunately just about every fun activity (swimming etc) is prohibited.

Great trail. You can also take a quick swim at the waterfall if it is a hot summer's day. So make it a point to carry your swimsuit and bath towels.

This is a very approachable, probably ADA accessible trail on a wide, flat boardwalk all the way to the lower Dingmans Falls viewpoint. I think one small section was level dirt, then the boardwalk started again. From there, the trail heads up a bunch of stairs, which we didn't do! Note that if you plug "Dingmans Falls" into Google Maps, it takes you to a dirt road in the middle of nowhere. Instead, tell Google to take you to "Dingmans Falls Visitor Center".

This is a short loop with two parking lots; you can do a loop from either lot. The trails, while short, are very inclined - it's not steep, but it's a good workout to go up and down. Part of it is stairs. There are two viewpoints on the falls that are decks with railings. One is at the top of the falls and another at a midpoint (below the upper falls, and next to the lower falls). Note that there were signs posted at the trailhead that said no pets, only service dogs. That matches the info on the NPS website. I was hiking with my dog and surprised to see those, so FYI.

Relatively easy trail. The beginning is a boardwalk and goes past a small waterfall. As you continue on, there are a few sets of stairs. The best view of the large waterfall is from the bottom. There are stairs to go up above, but the view is blocked by the foliage. As you continue on, there are more stairs that lead to the top of the waterfall. It took about half an hour to complete (out and back)

It was very nice views but definitely a tourist attraction as well. The trail itself is fenced off and to view the falls you’re standing on man made decks.

went on a mini hike with my bf the falls were amazing. be ware steps for dayss awesome trail though

I called the park office and they told me this will be closed for at least a year. They haven’t scheduled a time to fix it, could be years.

I would totally recommend this trail. The Waterfalls were beautiful and roaring with water. This map gets you to the Dingmans Falls Visitor Center parking lot. You will follow the boardwalk trail to the first waterfall Silver Thread and then continue to Dingmans Falls. If you walk up the steps to the top of Dingmans Falls and back it is just shy of a mile.

easy and beautiful hike

Great view, I did the whole loop, trail well marked. Not hard at all, pretty easy for beginners.I love it

It’s still closed.

Such a beautiful trail. Doesn’t take long at all. If you’re able to, climb the steps and check out the waterfall from above.

my kids and I have been coming to this trail for years we love it

Very easy trail. Nice and quiet on a March morning. Great place for two seven year old boys to find things to do.

I have visited the place after heavy snow and it's beautiful. The road which leads to Dingman falls Visitor center is closed in winters, so park your car near 209, where you see Dingman falls board. Its about half mile walk to the visitors center and 1 mile hike from there. There are restrooms near visitors center. The road which leads to visitors center it partially cleaned so its not difficult walking its just that vehicles are not allowed. From visitors center to falls there is a boardwalk and it gets slippery during snow. The silver threads falls is very beautiful and it was 70% frozen. The Dingman falls is beautiful, after which the trail leads to the rim of the falls with a lot of stairs, but the view was not great, so if you are with kids don't take the trouble just skip that part.

I parked on Old Silver Lake Rd., I should have brought my spikes for my shoes. I think it was closed, but they must be repairing it as there is lots of new wood and repairs that have been made. The only hard thing on this hike was the ice covered steps etc. Otherwise I think this will be open in the spring. The waterfalls is awesome.

Nice setting to the falls...unfortunately my recording kept shutting down. So its roughly 1.5 miles in & out I believe..my first time here. Lots of the board walk has been repaired from last year’s tree mess The main gate in closed so you need to walk the mile up the road to the start of the trail, easy walk with the creek to keep to occupied..

Showed up to hike, but changed our minds upon seeing two other hikers being ticketed at the trail head. The trail is definitely closed.

MUst wear boots real rocky and was a wet summer feed were wet a lot was a great 2 day hike

I went on November 3rd 2018. Fall colors were still there. It was a good hike. Falls was awesome.

This trail was really well marked with a bunch of really beautiful views! Make sure to take the survey at the center to help them keep their funding. This is a great trail and I highly recommend!

The trail is open and is beautiful. Two large waterfalls, easily accessible. Highly recommended.

Opens 10/31/18 at 1pm... Not a trick but certainly a treat.
