Hiked this trail on 10/19...started early and glad we did it started to get more crowded as the day progressed. took our lunch to enjoy the falls a little longer. It is a moderate trail....a couple of inclines but a nice hike.

Great hike with a slow incline. The trail follows a small river that’s beautiful. Be sure to check out the waterfall at the 4.25 mile.

Convenient location. The short paved trail is nicely shaded.

Big creek Gulf is the harder of the trails. When you get to the split from stone door we took Big Creek Gulf for a major downhill adventure. There was a dry creek bed for a lot of the hike and just before it starts with the uphill elevation there is a nice waterfall to stop and refill water and have a snack or lunch. The last mile to 2 miles is a beast. At one point it felt like the incline was almost straight up and was never going to end lol. Definitely a workout. Big creek rim is a fairly easy trail with a few viewpoints overlooking the mountains. If you want to start hard and end easy this is the way to go. If you want an easy start with a bang for an ending take Big Creek rim to big creek Gulf. It was roughly a 9-9.3 mile hike. I had two gps monitoring distance and those are the numbers I got.

Relatively easy hike to Benton Falls and back. The rocks the trail were challenging and hurt after a full five hour hike. Shared the trail with mountain bikers.

Went with my 60 year old mother, and we both loved hiking alongside the river

crowded, but not too crowded to deal with

get there early to get good parking!

Beautiful scenery. Trail does not follow the Allatrails map.

Beautiful views even with the stairs going down to the bottom of the falls being closed. Plenty of fish and wildlife to see . The water is cold year round . And plenty of bass to catch .
