Awesome hike. Took 1:15 to hike in, and an hour to hike out. Plus whatever time you spend at the falls. Waterfall is gorgeous. We went right after a good rain, so it was running really well. Go early, or on a weekday if possible... seems like it’s a really popular spot. Moderate rating appropriate. Incline towards falls went on for a while... not just a “walk in the woods”. All four members of my family say “five stars!!!!”

Moderate trail. Light traffic. Best to go to the top and then come back in about 1:30. Dogs half the time on leash. Bring bug spray.

There is no view at the summit. The trail is massively grown in. I'm convinced my group was the only one there this year.

Great hike, really enjoyed it. We went up the long trail, which was steep in place & a decent bit of scrambling up to. I rather enjoyed this as I love climbing and haven’t been for a while. The views on the way up are stunning and the summit views are incredible. We didn’t stay up for long as there was a storm due. Highly recommended!!

I don't know how they get 1.1 miles. All three falls are beautiful, but I was expecting more of a hike. Really, it's just a short walk to some waterfalls. I went Sunday morning in August and saw about 4 other small groups the whole time I was there, so it wasn't too busy at all Beautiful place to go, but don't expect much in terms of hiking.

Nice quiet hike — our dogs loved the lake!

Amazing views! Lots of stops with water ways if you have a pup in tow. Quite a few off-leash dogs though, just something to watch.

Great hike.

Nice trail with some challenging uphill climbs. Heavily trafficked so get there early to avoid large crowds at the summit.

This was a fun, quick hike that had a “kick” to it. I will definitely return to hike all the way up.

Great canoe trip

Moderate+ difficulty. Trail is moderately easy for the first 3/4 of a mile then gets a bit steeper for the next 1/2 mile before becoming slightly difficult for 1/4 mile until reaching the ski trail.
Cloudy and a bit cool today so we missed the great views at top. Top tram lodge had food, water fountain, and bathrooms. Wifi as well.
Had not planned to have lunch at top but the menu looked good, wife had a tuna sushi bowl and I had a pulled porked sandwich, both very good. Light traffic and met very few people on trail and a few good dogs.
Good footwear strongly encouraged. wet in spots, top to bottom.

Very well marked! Trail was in good condition despite the thunderstorms this week. The Cascades are awesome but unfortunately my view was socked in with mist. Will try it again!

Hicking trail on this app was not well described we took the “RED” road on the map provided by this app..... we ended up “off trail” almost got hurt! It was badly indicated and also to much detail were left out! It’s not a hicking trail so much as your walking in the rocks of the ski descent! There was one part after the the Lincoln Peak that was fun it was really a hicking trail in the woods and fun! Other then that it was very dangerous and we could have got hurt ! This should have been only for winter
Also we went all the way to Lincoln Peak and it clearly says 1200m or 3973 feet of altitude! And this app says that we only did 700m of altitude!! Kinda sucks after all this hard work you like to have your stats correct!!

Beautiful and easy walking trail. We did 6 miles out and back (3 each way). It was a great recovery walk after doing The Long Trail to the Chin the day before.

Good day to spend time with the kids. Plenty of climbing & easier than I thought to get back down. still have to be careful though.

Nice trail with beautiful views at the top. It was crowded though. The summit area is not very large and there were so many people up there that it was difficult to find space to sit and enjoy the view.

only went the 1.1 miles in. stopped at the falls. a lot of up. good for active people. beautiful views

Climbing Hellbrook two weeks ago was one of the most amazing hikes I have ever completed. This steep and challenging trail was exactly what I was looking for. Its steep ascent and decent amount of clambering was just the intense workout I needed. I started early in the morning and with the previous day's rain much of the trail was damp and at times slick however I never felt in danger as the trail provides just the right amount of roots and rocks to use as handholds when necessary.

I sweat profusely climbing the ascent in just about two hours and wouldn't have it any other way. I took brief pauses along the way but otherwise kept my body moving at a moderate clip throughout.

Due to intense fog and humidity I can't mention the views overly much but i can say it was satisfying to compare my elevation with the ridge across the mountain pass behind me. It was certainly an encouraging aspect to the climb.

At one point in the trail there are a couple of iron rungs mounted in the rock face for additional hand and foot holds. Never having seen this before on a hike, I found it quite intriguing and a nice little benefit right when I needed it. This also stoked my ego a little l knowing I was climbing a trail that necessitated such an addition.

All in all I couldn't be happier with the hike however it is definitely an intense workout and meant for people who have some experience and are able to conquer any nerves they might have about heights.

great trail great views!

Nice trail, a little heavily traveled, nice water views with waterfalls, good for kids and families.

Great hike!!

I've gone up every side of Camel's Hump and this is the best! Just be ready for a steep and strenuous hike up. I'm in pretty decent shape and i was huffing and puffing during the last push to the top.
Would stick to the Monroe trail if you're hiking in bad weather.

This is a pretty easy hike along the forest for about the first half as it runs along a really nice brook. When you come to the rocky steps it’s very steep (not dog friendly) and remains that way all the way to the top. Views were a little limited today because of incoming rain.

An easy light trail down. Didn’t bring a swimming suit but wish I had! I would have gone again if my vacation was longer. Beautiful!

Did this trail in an hour with 3 kids, and that included 20 mins spent at the fire tower at the top and 5 mins picking blackberries on the way down. Easy trail, mostly rock “stairs.”

Great network of easy hiking trails, perfect for exercising a dog. Enough space to spend hours walking. Beautiful natural setting.

One of my favorite hikes! Challenging but well worth the effort once you reach the summit.

This is going in one of my top 3 hikes so far this summer. I loved the trail, the trees, the quartz and the rock formations. The view is SO worth it. It was awesome to see Mansfield from a totally different angle.
