love the water falls

something for everyone.

Followed the yellow loop. A nice relatively easy trail. Was a bit wet from the rain so wear tevas or boots. Tons of places to hop in the water along the way. The back portion was a little over grown but they have cleared the area where the tornado was so the trail is cleared there.

really pretty views following the stream. storm damage at top was mind blowing, how many large trees ripped out of the ground. lots of people swimming. glad we detoured on our way home! will definitely be back again!

Most enjoyable and a very easy hike

My first time here today with my two dogs. We parked in the lot, crossed over the bridge and took the yellow trail to the left. Beautiful views of the creek, falls and tubs. It was rainy, wet and slippery today. A nice peaceful 20-30 min hike. Trail seemed to end so we turned around. Hiked back to the start where the bridge is and continued downward on the yellow trail which paralleled the creek. Really pretty, peaceful, shaded hike. I will go back again to explore more of the trails.

Just a gorgeous spot even on one of the busiest days of the year. The way the stream has cut through the rock and the tubs and falls it's created are spectacular. Water was icy cold! Where good walking shoes or hiking boots unless you're only going to the tub closest to the parking lot. Will definitely be going back.

Great trail to hike. Running is a little dicey due to the rocks and roots but not too bad.
Large number of very old trees downed by the tornado at the top of the trail. Forestry has cleaned the paths. Devastation by the tornado was impressive.

Great hike. BUT - the TORNADO that went through Wilkes Barre took out a bunch of trees—making the
Trail impassible. We did it but had to go over and

Clearly marked trails with a great view! Wear some shoes with traction bc the rocks get slippery! I wish it was a longer trail.

Great views! Perfect for a quick afternoon hike. Trail is fairly well marked. A couple slippery spots on wet rocks but overall an easy hike.

Beautiful waterfalls, and river views. The more you walk into the forest the better it gets. Definitely wear shoes with traction, because of slippery damp rocks.

Beautiful trail loop that is well marked!

Very pleasant experience. Though I do not understand why DCNR locked up the gate (apparently all winter) and put up no parking signs on the entrance since when you call the DCNR office they instruct you to park there anyway during the winter and to walk past the gate to get it.

Finding the trail markers was a bit difficult at times but that made the adventure more fun. Loved the scenic view from the train tracks.

Very scenic hike. We weren’t able to see all the Tibs as part of trail was close down but we did enjoy our hike!

Absolutely a must see

Loved it! Every step of the way is so beautiful! Fall colors and a fun little trail on the water.

Currently being renovated, new steps and reworking the water flow. And I see why, some spots are extremely slippery. Did a number on my knee here.

Great morning walk today. Some spots are super slippery. Some beautiful spots along the creek. All in all a nice easy trail. Just watch for rocks and tree roots that are ankle twisters. They are doing some work at the top by the power lines, but the trail continues even though it appears to end, just look around.

Excellent hike! Breathtaking views all around and the place truly felt magical. Easy hike too. Will definitely be returning in the very very near future

Great trail with so much to see. It was an easy hike, with not too many steep inclines, rocky areas, or slippery slopes. I brought my seven year old son and he was able to hike the whole thing without any trouble. There are many small waterfalls, beautiful wild flowers, natural tubs, and great views along this trail. I was very pleased with this hike, and will absolutely be visiting here again. We went after a week of rain so the trail was slightly muddy, but it made the falls and tubs even more enjoyable!
