Great trail running. Beautiful views at the top!

Love this hike! Fun for families and dogs.

Good hike If you want a workout. The trail is steep. Beautiful views. Trail was very busy when we visited in late summer on a Monday. We ended up having some good conversations with other hikers.

Incredible view! Earn it with the length but easy to moderate trail. Can run and bike it. So worth it no matter how you climb it!

real pretty falls. it is a lot bigger then they say. Has a cauldren type going on down from the falls and when you reach the very bottom go to your left and about crawl threw the rhodedenrons and there is another fall with no name and it also has a cauldron type on down from it. the main trail is more climbing then walking with all the rocks. i dont suggest a dog on this hike my two and my daughter in laws didnt like it the rock and falls close to them is hard on dogs and small children. it is worth seeing though have been there 3 times the last time was april 2018

been 3 times and each time it was just as beautiful. would never be bored going to see it. there is also a waterfall at tbe base to your left just crawl threw tbe rhodadenrons it us worth the crawl also

This hike is absolutely beautiful. We even had trail magic waiting at the bottom. Such a perfect day.

Great Ride for horses.

Very well kept! Beautiful!!

Amazing!, I have 2 kids 12 and 14 and a boxer. The entire family loved it, it was difficult hiking the closer you got to the fall; that said it was well worth the hike down. If you have small children just beware some of the rocks can be very slick and if you fall it’s a ways down.

Great hike and views. Steady incline the whole way up.

This hike was amazing! I went with one other women, both of us in our 20s, and neither of us felt that it was that difficult. It was definitely a climb rather than a stroll. The waterfalls were so beautiful. Definitely worth the hike for us!

Good hike, not a long distance but somewhat hard since I have short legs

Short hike, but some tricky spots climbing down and then back up. We only got about .6 on the gps. Awesome waterfall!

Moderate hike. Easy, steady incline for the first 3.5 miles and gets fairly steep from there to the top. There is a top parking lot for people who don't want to hike the lower 3.5 miles.

Not a difficult trail by any means, just long. The hike eventually got to my lower half after about the 3.5 mile mark, so the last mile was a little tough, but great views from the fire tower. Steps going up fire tower are pretty small, so take it slow so you don't slip. All in all it's a good trail, but probably just going to do this once.

Risk is very much worth the reward with this trail, but requires very careful footing. Took me a while to really figure out how to get to the falls as I didn't see any markings. My GPS took me right to the trailhead, just watch for large red dot on tree next to road in parking area. There's no cell service so I would urge you to bring a partner just in case one were to fall. All in all this is a great trail for anyone looking for a quick challenge. I'll definitely be returning

Great hike! The falls are spectacular!

longer trail, 4.8 up but it is a constant gentle climb. Have seen many rattlers up there the last 2 years so use caution if you have dogs

Great short hike, some climbing. Wear good ankle supporting boots

Well maintained trail. The views at the fire tower are breathtaking. This trail in my opinion is easy. I would rate it moderate only because of the mileage.

took this hike Saturday march 31 fantastic weather and very clear. it's a pretty strenuous hike hike but it was worth the effort and the views at beauty spot were Incredible. l will be doing this one again in the near future

This is a really cool trail, but packs a punch. Climbing down to the falls can be very sketchy in wet conditions. I would not take kids on this trail as a fall could result in death in some spots. We did see a black bear on this trail. Parking area is hard to find and no sign.

Deep woods trail that makes you feel like you are deep in the wilderness. Which that isn’t far from the truth. I prefer to cut off this trail and go visit Lower Dicks Creek Falls.

Well maintained trail. Lengthy but the climb is gradual, so it isn't too difficult. Views are great if you are willing to climb to the observation deck. It is nice, large deck. Had my lunch there.

Loved this trail. Easy hiking but is 9 miles so still a good workout. When you get to the top the view is amazing!

Definitely more of a climb than hike but well worth the effort if you love waterfalls and be sure and go all the way to the bottom
