Not for anyone with difficulty with ascents. The descent down to the falls isn't bad at all and the trail isn't especially rough, but the ascent back up the mountain isn't fun. There's some damage from the forest fires at the beginning, but even that holds its own kind of beauty. The falls are in a valley and feel very isolated- it's a beautiful setting!

Chose a wonderful day to hike this trail. 6 hour round trip. Amazing experience

Very cool bridge on this hike. It's very photogenic and just fun to cross. When we hiked this trail, we didn't see any other people. I don't know if that's normal, but we enjoyed the seclusion! Bug spray is recommend as you are pretty deep in the woods. I got bit a lot, but it was definitely worth it!

Great trail! You drive this one though, so don't be confused and think it's a hike. You can pull off and do conventional hikes around it if you'd like as well. This is a one way road through a more secluded area of the park. If you go around 6 o'clock, it's a great opportunity to see bears. We saw 5 on our trip. Just drive slow and be on the lookout and you're bound to see something neat! Great for an end of the day activity once you're tired from hiking all day.

Very touristy, so be prepared for large groups of people. It's a fairly strenuous uphill hike to the falls, but coming down is very easy. The falls are cool, but my favorite part was the outlook about 80% of the way up. There are some gaps in the trees and you can see out over the mountains for miles!

Beautiful hike along the river with beautiful views and a great end by the waterfall. Good for families.
