Super fun and worth the hike. Very rocky. So many sites to see and many small waterfalls. The views from ravens point is worth the extra mile.

This is it for trails, has everything!!! An awesome, amazing place. One of my favorites!

Great place for a hammock and oh what a beautiful plunge type waterfall

Beautiful!! The rough terrain of the hike made it exciting just to short of a hike. The rocks varying in size on the trail can make it little difficult. Waterfall was cool!!!

The waterfall at the end was definitely worth the hike!! I was able to hang my hammock up right underneath the waterfall and take about an hour nap. It’s so lightly trafficked, there was no one but me for about an hour and a half, so that was very nice. If you aren’t paying close attention, you’ll lose the trail. It’s completely rock jumping at parts, with no dirt trail to follow. If you’re up for an adventure, i highly suggest this hike!

This was an excellent hike. Amazing views and plenty of places to relax. Ravens point is a view worth the hike. Take lots of water!

Outstanding! Make sure you start early and plan your whole day around it. So much to see. You’ll want to stop and take it all in. Maybe consider camping overnight to break it up. It’s a hike! But a great one!

Beautiful falls. There are many places to hang out when it is busy so you won't​ have to be near other hikers. There are also some good hammocking trees for those who like to do that.

One of my top three trails.

Beautiful trail with a breathtaking waterfall. Denny Cove is our favorite in this area.

One of my favorites! Gorgeous and a nice day hike. It's incredible all 4 seasons. It's somewhat rugged for beginners but there is a shorter hike that leads into this one, it also goes on to a 13 mile hike if you want a little more.

Easy hike with some rocky spots at the end coming up on the falls. I went after a huge rain and the falls were raging! Hardly any other foot traffic making other human interaction minimal. (

Chose this hike because of the recent rain. I was not disappointed. The sight and the sound of the water made the day. Very rocky on the way down but slow and steady.

The hike was fun but my friends and I brushed against a plant called Giant Hogweed. I did a ton of research because I got 3rd degree burns from this plant across my half of my shin. I would advise to AVOID this trail or be extremely careful. Someone needs to go out there and take care of this plant. I'm scarred to this day and still sensitive when I put my socks on. The pain was unbearable, stuck indoors for 2 weeks straight. Blisters the size of a baseball on my leg. And this location is the only place in the area that this stuff has been reported. I would have reported it but I don't know where I brushed against the plant. All I know is that I was hiking on this trail with my friends and I noticed weird burns on my legs later that night. Two days later my leg was covered in tiny EXTREMELY painful blisters. By day 6 my entire leg was purple and blue and swollen I had no idea what had happened and I had to visit 6 different doctors. It was 14 days before I came outside for the first time. Took 3 months to get rid of the blisters. I am scared and sensitive to this day. PLEASE AVOID THIS TRAIL!!!!!!!!!!

Good trail you’ll have to deal with hiking up the mountain but it’s not to bad all in all good hike. We hiked this in mid February and saw lots of bear scat on the trail

This loop has a lot of great views. Get out there early so you can take your time to soak it all in.

a favorite, especially like checking out sycamore falls in winter

We did this trail yesterday and I have nothing but good things to say about it. It's challenging, but easily doable as a day hike. And the scenery... literally 10 miles of nothing but awesome things to look at. We loved it!!

Great Hike! Awesome scenery, especially along the creek! Got some great pictures and an even better workout! Will definitely be going back in the future!

1.21.18 Great little day hike my boyfriend and I did in the afternoon. We got amazing photos of the falls when it was frozen over with ice.

Pretty cool place. Been wanting to check it out for a while. Was not disappointed. Took my 6 year old. Short walk from the parking area. Waterfall was really nice. The cave was closed d/t the bats hibernating. Will definitely go back when I can go all the way thru!

Boulder valley is 4.5 miles of sweet sweet abuse that leaves you craving more domination at the hands of mother neature. Thank you mother. May I have another??

beautiful and the kids loved it!

This was a pretty good hike. absolutely beautiful. Lots & lots of hills....the scenery is so beautiful!

Long, moderate to strenuous hike. This was actually to Buzzard Point via the Snow Falls Trail. When you get up to the top where you walk between the two huge rocks, take a left and it takes you to Buzzard Point. Stunning views!

Beautiful. You can add on a portion of the Fiery Gizzard trail to increase mileage as well.

Difficult but awesome hiking trail. Not for younger children. I brought my 7 yr old and 13 yr old boys. We started at 8 am and ended near 6 pm for the entire trail. So I would find a babysitter for the long trail. The swimming trails are okay for children as long as they aren't very clumsy. The hike itself is intense. Be sure you have everything you need because once you overcome half of the trail, there's no turning back. Stay hdrated!!!! Eat!!!!
