Stunning waterfalls! The bridge that crosses the creek made me weary, but once I was over it, the views made my anxiety about crossing the bridge worthwhile.

nice trail

Great views, a few rough areas walking over roots and rock, but easy even for this 51 year old amateur. Very busy on a Saturday, but most seemed to be taking the short route clockwise to the falls instead of the full route counterclockwise as I did. My favorite trail so far!

I went here based on the hard rating. Middle of July, 90 plus temp, day after it rained in our area. Small gravel walk up to get to the trail. Zigzag down ridge. Kinda treacherous, but doable, taken slowly.

Then it's just a long, easy walk crossing 9 creek crossings. Bring a change of shoe, or bring some hybrid that can handle water and hiking. I brought sandals and switched to them at CC1. I never found a need to switch back to hikers until I got back to CC1 on the return. Definitely want something other than a sandal for the ascent at the end.

The ascent to the Window Cliffs is a decent incline, but I would rate this more of a moderate, unless it had been storming recently, or had steady rains the previous days.

My scoring of this trail may be colored by my disappointment at the lack of difficulty. I had done the Fiery Gizzard loop 2 days prior and was looking for a similar, though shorter, challenge. So, if you aren't looking to test your abilities on the hardest trails you can find, this may be the trail for you. Personally, my next goal is Mount LeConte, or completing the Gizzard full trail.

nice place to take kids! I had three six year olds with me and they were able to hike the whole trail with no problem. you cross the creek several times , but its nice on a hot day and the kids loved it. the waterfalls were beautiful. and we were the only ones on the trail when we went.

An excellent hike with views of 5 waterfalls (see photos), overhangs, and old growth hemlocks. The trial follows the river and along the way are numerous small falls but pretty ones nonetheless, with accompanying swimming holes. The forest is cool and dark! A caution, though, don't wear sandals and don't think you can fly over this trail despite its shortness; most of it is very rocky and full of roots...it takes its own time!

Absolutely loved it! We took our 6 year old and everything was doable!

nice trail,fun walk. Needs overnight camping, and no dog rule enforced.

Great place to take my dog. Beautiful, but there's no hiking.

Def. be prepared
Strenuous hike,pack plenty of drinking water
