Great waterfall and short hike. Water was crystal clear and the perfect temperature to cool down in July.

Beautiful place to explore. Be sure to walk past main viewing area to find away across to the other side for more spectacular views and less people. You can find your way into the water for a swim and natural whirlpool.

Beautifully maintained trail. most of it is relatively flat with lots of tree roots. it's really close to a step drop off at the beginning, so don't bring little kids unless they'll hold your hand firmly. great informational signs.

This is right near mountain biking and the Catamount cross country ski trail. A great hidden gem of a resource. and it's a beautiful drive to get to the trail head.

Great little hike. We were checking it out for hiking with friends that don’t hike. This is an easy one with beautiful falls. We started out around 7 AM and had the trail to ourselves. Also went past the falls for another 3/4 of a mile just for the exercise. Nice trails with a couple steep spots that can get the heart rate up.

This is not 2.9 miles.... half mile round trip maybe a tad more. Nice view of falls.

Easy. Nice waterfalls. . There is a beaver dam on the left when you first start walking. You can see tree stumps with teeth marks.

Short but sweet! Breathtaking waterfall at the end of an easy and short easy to follow trail.

Theses waterfalls are amazingly beautiful.
But once you’ve reach the top, it seemed to us the trail was boring.
And the waterfalls are at the beginning of the trail so for those looking for a good hike maybe this is not your place.

Very easy walk to a historic cabin. We went the extra distance to Bingham Falls, and there was a steep climb down, but it is definitely worth the effort - beautiful!

Beautifully maintained trail with geologic education posters along the way. The views are peaceful and stunning.

Easy hike to see the falls, beyond the top is a rather boring trail.

Very nice trail, a little short if you just want a hike, but if you’re going swimming or cliff jumping, the falls are perfect. There are a few small rocks to jump off, but you can also jump the 30 foot cliffs above the falls. Bring towels because you will definitely want to dry off that cold water before hiking out.

Awesome narrow valley (glen) falls and cascades. A really short trek in but you can continue up to the top of the falls and, if you want to go further you can continue down snowmobile path. A must see!

A fun nice and easy trail. It would be great for kids as it has a sugar house and a cool gnome tree.

Easy hike. Once your at the top of the falls there is a cart road turned around there.

Very easy and flat hike, interesting plant life and the falls along the route are really lovely!

The falls are only about a 2 min hike in, and they are stunning! The rest of the walk is flat and mundane, with no designated end and no views, but if you like the woods and the river, it’s a great spot!

Easy and short hike with an amazing view!

Nice, easy trek with lots of options! Great for kids.

Nice, short hike, steep at points, but the falls are worth it. This trail is fairly popular, but there are other, less crowded cascades nearby that you can explore.

Great, easy loop! Plenty of options to make the trip shorter or longer as you choose.

Nice hike in the winter. A bit of scrambling to get up to the falls. After you pass the falls it's really just a flat forest road. In the winter seems like a snowmobile trail as well.

Short trail, little squishy in some areas but boards laid down on the trail helps. Have to climb at the end of the trail to get the best view of the falls.

5-star for the waterfall! In Summer you can walk through the steam to the falls.
3-star for this trail. We just walked the “trail” up past the falls (12/1017) in light snow. Gorgeous views of the falls, but the trail is a simple walk in the woods. No vista at the end, and no designated end point. The trail goes on.... so my advice is to explore around the falls primarily.

Great place to swim!

Awesome waterfall with a lot of places for climbing and lounging in the river. View from the bottom of the falls is well worth the walk down. Of note, the steps down to the bottom are steep and can be slippery when wet and covered in leaves.

perfectly nice and easy hike. falls are lovely but not most impressive in the area. make sure you go to the bottom of the falls too. There is longer hike you can do from the falls

short walk to falls. limited view from the top and so worth the equally short walk to the bottom to get a better view
