Today was a great hike. I like to take the trail backwards as it provides a little more challenge than flat and downhill. There are several trees down both in the forest and across the road ,so it is closed for cars at this time.

Tried to run this trail. took two friends. broke both my legs an hour into it. Frank lost his mind after 9 hours. We ran out of food by the third day. Joey ate a mushroom and died. I lost vision in my left eye on day 7. Frank chased a squirrell of the edge of a cliff and died. i only survived because i tripped and fell and rolled down to the bottom and landed in front of park ranger. dont attempt this trail.

Awesome paved trail for the kidos, that are still on training wheels! Lots of benches along the trail to stop and check out the river. Multiple bathroom facilities, splash pad and park. Would be a good venue for a kids birthday party with the grill and table set ups.

I am fortunate that I live close enough to this trail to walk it on a regular basis. Don't miss the rose garden near the student center or the koi pond near the amphitheater.

This is a very easy trail. Good for families

Great, short hike down to the bottom of the beautiful falls. A lovely place to contemplate and unwind.

we started clockwise and it was smooth going, with few mountain bikes. coming down from this direction (on the part where bikes are not allowed) was pretty technical. once we got to the dam and the waterfall the rest of the walk out was easy.

This trail is in the middle of nowhere but it is absolutely worth it. As for the trail, once you walk through the fields it gets a bit difficult to follow due to poor trail markings(follow the map in the app and you will be fine). Once you start getting closer to the falls the trail gets substantially worse and you have to climb up quite a ways over fallen trees and large rocks. All this being said, the falls are definitely worth the strenuous hike. I will definitely do this one again.

We went to the end of the dirt road to park my car then loaded up into the truck and went down the “primitive road” The trail was great! The last little bit is a little difficult but my 3 year old son did most of this hike.

If you’re not staying in the paved path, be prepared for unmarked paths. We got turned around a couple of time but ended up back where we started so it wasn’t bad. Didn’t see the falls or milk site....must have been further down the paved path. Easy walk so it was nice for a Sunday stroll. Would be good for older people and young kids. Gave 3 stars because the unmarked trail was SUPER annoying.

Easy, Quick trail. Took 4 kids ages 17, 15, 9 and 5 in early September. Trail was easily managed. Highlight: Great photogenic falls at the end.

Alltrails shows this as a loop, but the trail disappears at the halfway point, around the old abandoned bridge. I marched on anyway through the woods and finally picked the trail back up at the point where it leaves the creek. But even then there were parts of the trail overgrown and hard to find.

Easy trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end.

hiked this trail today with 2 dogs, a 5 yr old and 20 month old. excellent trail. great swimming hole at the very beginning of the trail and various water spots along the way and we were surprised to see another water fall half way through the loop. highly recommend with young ones.

Trails were not too bad. As the other reviews state, there are lots of trees to cross. The trail head is NOT marked at all, so bring your GPS or print off the directions. If you're going just for the falls, take the Lower falls trail (different site) for a better view. Be aware that there is no phone service. I would rate this trail as moderate due to the down trees.

Tough. 10.4 miles total. Pinnacle to Ridge to Table Rock is the way to go.

Cool place!

Great short hike for kids. Gentil hills, sandy trails and lots of trees. If you have a dog keep it on a leash! 2 inconsiderate, irresponsible dog owners allowed their unleashed dogs to attack my leashed dog.

Nice hike and pretty view at the end. Had some hills. Was a good day hike. Great visitor center.

Beautiful hike and easy trail.

Nice short hike with a great payoff at the falls.

Great hike with awesome falls at the end. As stated in other reviews, easy 0.6 mi beginning then 1.6 mi climb to the falls but well worth it. Took our dog and we had no difficulties. Went on a weekday afternoon and found ourselves alone at the falls.

great trail. 4x4 access road gets you a little closer. also has spots for camping

Both the pup and I really enjoyed this quick hike. Definitely steep enough to warrant the moderate rating. Only saw one rattlesnake. :/

Used the gps here to get to the falls, however, it doesn’t lead to a trailhead. Ended up not being able to find the trail.

We did this walk with our 2 dogs. Not a lot of elevation or views this tone of year. But it was beautiful and peaceful.

Loved this trail! Lots of rocks and roots on the path, so you have to watch your footing, but overall it was a great hike to some awesome falls.

I have enjoyed these hiking trails a lot so far. I think the map is off as regards the number of trails and the full distance of you connected, and walked through several of the trails. lately the has been excess debre, but nothing terrible. only issue with the app is would like the map more up to date. as the are other trails available, not just the high road and primaries.
