Did this hike during a rain storm and late so the trail was empty and the falls had extra volume.
Had a blast on this hike.

Was an ok greenway type deal but lots of people. A good ride for beginners on the mtn bike to build up some confidence.

Great hike with multiple scenic views. Check out the cliff tops once you get to the top. Worth it!

It is a very nice little trail but quite short, only 45 minutes or so depending if you take a lot of pictures. There has been extensive damage to overlooks (leading to a massive pile of planks and nails lying discarded on the gravel road) so the central overlook is closed entirely as well as the path down from the level of the highest fall to its base. Some of the handrails are a little rickety but the path didn't seem very dangerous even hiking the day after rain. If they ever fix the closed sections I would probably upgrade it to 4 stars but it seems very unlikely. I also saw ZERO wildlife which was remarkable.

These views will blow your mind. Lots of traffic on the trail, was pretty muddy with the recent rains- but worth it for those falls views! Will definitely come back!

Amazing lookout in the middle of the loop, a civil war cemetery, crossing a riverbed and overlooking a small waterfall. This trail had a little bit of everything. Will definitely do this hike again for the overlook alone!

I've hiked this a couple times but it's not worth 5 stars. It's a decent hike to get out on for someone who doesn't mind some elevation gain. However, don't go just to see the falls because they aren't very big & it isn't nearly as impressive as other falls in the area. The trail is well maintained & isn't too crowded.

Awesome hike and beautiful scenery! We hiked to Laurel Falls but didn't make the other due to time. Definitely going back!

Absolutely beautiful. It is kind of confusing to figure out exactly where the trail starts. You cross the dam and just go straight. Did run into one snake. Well worth the hike to the falls though, very easy. Take your suits and swim at the "beach"!

great hike with a great overlook...

I love walking on the different sections of the Greenbelt. So many neat places along the way. Great place to walk, run, or bike, and see lots of nature.

Great hike with the wife! Took about an hour to hike in closer to an hour-twenty back out. Be prepared for an uphill climb on the way back out. The reward is so worth the effort. Standing in the mouth of the cave is like standing in front of an air conditioner. Took tons of pictures and saw an armadillo during the hike. We will be bringing our 8 year old son back to this one!
