Flat, paved and quiet with a mix of sun and shade, the main trail is easy running. If I lived near it, the trail would be a great path for a daily jog. Unfortunately most views of the river are shielded by overgrown bamboo and shrubs. Also I prefer a bit more variety in incline when trail running. Otherwise a very peaceful place to run!

There are 9 creek crossings one way, so 18 all together, and they are numbered (e.g., CC 7). The creek is wide enough that, unless water levels are very low, there's no way but through the water. I wasn't sure how that would go, but the creek crossings ended up being a neat feature of this hike. We wore boots or sneakers at first and then switched to chacos once we reached the 1st crossing. It was in the high 50s, so the water was cold enough that we didn't dawdle. Surprisingly, only creek crossings 8 and 9 were slippery at all. The water was higher than normal due to flooding 5 days prior, but it wasn't too deep for wading. The deepest spot we traversed was maybe 2.5 feet. I developed a blister from the chacos and was thankful we were prepared for that. The window cliffs are amazing, and walking on the initial top section is fun and safe if you're very careful. There wasn't really room to picnic up there, so we backtracked and ate by the creek. Roundtrip hike took us about 3 hours. Fun time doing something different!

Short hike but the waterfall is amazing. Plan to swim. Best on a weekday. Weekends are so crowded it's hard to enjoy.

Cool trail. Plan on doing the Cable Trail, Fall Creek Falls, and the swinging bridge at Piney Creek Falls on the same day. All short but amazing.

Short and easy walk. Only takes a few minutes to walk. It's worth stopping if you're close by. Expect a lot of people on the weekends.

Well marked trail with blazes and signage. The incline on the way out can be bit strenuous depending on fitness level. I would recommend good footwear with tees as some steep parts of the path can get slick. Overall, beautiful views. Perfect for a day hike.

Beautiful hike, easy to moderate. We completed in around three hours, left at 1:50p returned around 5:00p. Not too many people on the trail in mid November, the views are amazing!
