Great family hike! We have 2 kids, 10 and 8, and this was the longest hike they've ever done. It's definitely moderate in difficulty due to the hills, rocky/root terrain and length. I mapped the trek and it's closer to 5.5 miles in length.

As the elevation map indicates, you are up and down hills throughout, with the crest being right at 1.25 miles in. There are some cool rocks to climb at that point and offer a nice diversion after the climb.

The end point at the falls is really nice. Lots of places to sit and have a snack. The falls are beautiful and although the water looks inviting there are many signs warning of danger as several people have died there.

Great hike overall, would highly recommend!

Cool view but was not an overall great experience. Very narrow trail and is not clearly marked.

Love this trail, and all the trails at this park. No heavy traffic and very nice scenery.

Me and my son just hiked this with his Boy Scout troop this past weekend. We stayed at the regular camp sites Friday night which I have to say are pretty nice. On Saturday we hiked up to shelter two on the river. After dropping some of our gear we then hiked around the north part of the loop over to shelter 1 which at times could be difficult if your not used to hiking. The biggest climb we had was probably 160 - 180 feet up to where shelter 1 was. All in all it was a pretty good trail but I sure wouldn't tackle this during the summer months.

If you’re in search of breathtaking views, look elsewhere. If you’re in search of an awesome nature trail/walk in the woods that is moderately strenuous, this is it!

great scenery and fun trail, with options to explore along the way

Great scenery! Easy to moderate difficulty, but worth the views! The stairs to get to the bottom of the waterfall were closed when I went due to structural damage but you can climb to the top of the waterfall and there is a good view from across the river!
