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.

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!

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.

Went during a rain storm so the falls had some extra volume and enjoyed the empty hike.
Drive past the no parking signs. There is parking in the forest. Climb down to the falls view from path.

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"!

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.

Absolutely beautiful! Plan on returning g with our 2 boys!

I did this hike with my 4 and 6 year old kids. Nice hike with beautiful scenery. Multiple waterfalls along the way to look at. The trail to the Falls is easy to miss. I missed it and ended up about 2 miles from the Appalachian Trail. We backtracked and finally found the trail. Wow! It was secluded and beautiful! We ate a quick lunch and the kids played in the water, which wasn't too deep. We were thoroughly tired by the time we got back to the car...probably due to the extra 4 miles we hiked. All in all, wonderful hike and I would recommend...probably with older children.
