My kids and I did this along with the entire natural bridge trail (2 loops connected) and had no issues. The views were spectacular and the couple downed trees were easily hopped saplings. My kids are 6 & 8 for reference. Lots of cool boulders and neat fungi along the way. I would say that the hike up to the lot from the natural bridge is quite steep and definitely works the calves. Will be back again! Saw a few other people but not a lot. We played in the first fall and the lake a bit. Took us about 5 hours to complete both trails with 2 (30 to 45min) water play stops.

Lots of trees were down. Saw a bear... too close for comfort. Couldn’t do the entire trail due to the natural rock bridge not being fully accessible.

Perfect for a family looking for views and a place to cool off. Trail is very easy. Expect to run into others as this seems very popular.

HikingGreat!

This was a fairly busy trail. I don’t prefer busy trails but the waterfall is amazingly whimsical! A definite must see. The trail is enjoyable. I found it to be pretty easy. Good trail to take a first time hiker. Across the street from the Yellow Branch entrance is the entrance to Stump House Tunnel and Issaqueena Falls. I recommend adding those to your day while visiting Yellow Branch. Worth doing!

The first thing that stands out to me was how well marked this trail was. It was a great steady climb, once I was headed in the right direction. I started out going the wrong way from the parking lot, since I’d read incorrectly another review about “take the trail, not the road”. Ok, let’s clarify this- at the start of the trail the gravel road is the trail until you cross 178, got it? Good. So, my first section of the hike was a bit long at 5.75- it took my dog and I 1:49 to get to the top. We were surprisingly alone on the trail. There were a few others at the top, but they had driven. Took us 1:15 to get down and that distance was 4.28- so that is an accurate distance from the platform at the top to the parking lot. Lots of pretty wildflowers, and yes, poison ivy- sporadic along the trail, prevalent in the parking lot. I bet in the winter you’d have some great views along the trail before the summit. I think we will do this one again.

Walked the trail 08/09/2020. The trail conditions were fairly decent. Many spots were washed out by the numerous amounts of rain storms the area has encountered since the end of November ‘19. There were hazardous bolts sticking up from the ground in some areas in the creek crossings, so beware. The waterfall has experienced a few changes as a large rock the size of a large home, as well as multiple large trees are blocking a rather beautiful view of the waterfall and creek below. During the summer months (June-August), I would highly advise visitors to stay hydrated and carry small snacks as the weather tends to be very humid and quite hot. Other than that, it’s a low to moderate, yet fun-filled adventure in and out.

The falls is beautiful and the trail is an old gravel road right up till the falls so it's an easy trail. Starting out the trail can be a little confusing but just follow the dirt path by the trail map sign and take a right onto the gravel road and then follow it al the way down. There are several campsites down by the Falls in case you want to make camp and stay for a while.

This is a fantastic trail for several reasons, easy to find and right off the road. Great parking, well-maintained, lake views, and campsites with water and fire rings

Hiking

This was a nice hike. The trail was quite clear most of the way. There were three or four spots were trees were down and they had not been cleared, but the trail was otherwise clear. We didn't spot much wildlife. Once you reach the top of the falls, you can hike up a ways further and see additional falls that are quite lovely. If you check my track, you'll see that I followed a side trail to see if we could make it to the bottom of the falls. That was a bad idea. It was steep and led nowhere. I thought I might be able to bushwhack through to a trail but had no luck. So, stay on the main trail. There were lots of people at the bottom of the falls, but almost no one at the top.

Great local urban trail on levy between canal and river. Entire thing is asphalt, with a dirt/gravel curb. Historical buildings on either end. Signage explaining history and nature along the way. Shade limited. Water and sunscreen advised. Plenty of benches, call boxes. Leashed dogs welcome. Handicapped accessible.

Really nice trail, very easy at the beginning but there was more incline after the first mile or so. My only complaint was how poorly marked it was. It’s very easy to get turned around on the way back bc there are a lot of trails that branch off.

Such a beautiful trail! I started from Chimneytop Gap, which cut out about 1.5 miles off each way. Started a bit after 8, summited at 9:30, hung out for a bit up top, and then back to the car just after 11. I suspect the extra three miles would’ve added another two hours. Trail is well-maintained and easy to follow. Pretty steady uphill climb with some lengthy flat sections. Not much in the way of views until the end, but beautiful greenery throughout. Views from the top are awesome, and the observation tower is really well done.
