I've heard about compressions for years but finally made it out. The waterfall seems a lot bigger in person than in pictures. The hike itself is pretty brutal on the way back up but it's short. Nice swimming holes and places to hangout. Totally worth it

**UNTIL MAY 21: The sections past Sycamore Falls are closed for pipeline maintenance. (Per the signage out there)

The part of the Fiery Gizzard to Sycamore Falls is lush, beautiful and cool with a lot of Hemlocks throughout.

Breathtaking fall at the end of a fun, but wee bit difficult hike. It's an unfinished trail, so parts of it feel like you are actually off trail. Lots of rocks to hop across. Trail is well marked most of the way.

My husband and I did this trail on Sunday and it was amazing. We drove 2 hours and it was well worth it as a day date.

The waterfall is amazing, the hike to it seems longer than what the sign says. The last 1/4 mile or so to the waterfall is very rocky. The waterfall is worth it though, I ran into several hikers who asked if the hike was worth it while heading back.

Beautiful! Short hike, but seems longer. Be ready for some navigating over rocks, both large and small. Stunning waterfall at the end!! On the way out, we hiked up to the trail that follows the bluff. It isn’t marked but you can’t get lost. Well worth it, if you’re game for a little adventure.

The hike is steep but the view at the top is so worth it. Can’t wait to go again.

Multiple options for hikers looking for a casual hike to the cardiac workout that comes with elevation climb. Trails are well marked and better yet there is a rope climb and a bell to ring at the top on the West Slope.

What a beautiful waterfall.

Breathtaking the first time you see it. One of my all time favorite hikes and waterfall.

Beautiful area!!!❤

Wonderful place. Not much hiking but a lot to see in a small area. Be aware that you must have a permit to enter the cave. You can get them by calling Fall Creek Falls. The cave is also closed in the winter months but it’s still worth the visit

worth the rocky walk.

This trail was as hard as the review say. After hiking this, I was completely stiff and sore the next day due to how steep, it was almost like rock climbing. Other than that, completely worth it! Absolutely beautiful hike and waterfall.

Loved climbing the rocks and the views of the river were great. At some points you may have to get on all four extremities. The trail doesn't go all the way to the top but there are still some awesome overlooks. once you get to a bunch of fallen trees you'll have to turn around.

Love this trail completely

Such an amazing and beautiful trail! It really does have everything if you can tough out the 10 miles. It does get somewhat technical at points, so I think the "hard" rating is appropriate. Give yourself about 6 hours to complete it if you can keep a pretty good pace.

Most beautiful hike ever! Not very well marked so we got off trail a little but the scenery was beyond worth it!!! My favorite place to go!

Amazing trail! Challenging, but so beautiful!! One of the best hikes I've been on so far!

I’m not sure why this site has the trail at 9.1 miles. This is the 2nd time I have completed the trail and I get right at 10 miles each time. Once again, the trail was amazing. Late March, started in the morning at about 45 degrees and the temp never got above 55 degrees. It was perfect hiking weather, but really chilly at Raven’s Point. We did the trail counter-clockwise and went through the Gizzard first. It’s tough to enjoy Raven’s Point when you’re pretty exhausted. Next time I’ll try this trail starting with Dog Hole first and finishing in the Gizzard. Didn’t need as much water with cooler temps, but if you have a small Helinox chair, I would recommend bringing it. I’m going to pick up a couple for the next trip. It would be amazing to be able to sit next to the creek for a while and enjoy the peace and quiet for a while. Can’t wait to do it again!

Lots of good trail options.

Had an amazing hike there, one of the most challenging I've been on in a long time... well marked trail...

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

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!
