Great hike. Our dogs loved crossing the water many times.

Nice day hike to lovely falls at the top. Several rock crossings may leave you with wet boots! Or wear your swimsuit and take a dip.

Great view at summit and rewarding for a short hike. Fair amount of traffic.

It was a good hike. The falls were not that impressive the day I went because it hadn't rained in a while but other hikers I spoke to that day said when it's been raining, the falls are great.

Really nice hike for a family of four with a 9 and 5 year old in tow.

Nice fun trail with awesome scenery.

Good trail. Well maintained. Good waterfall views

This trail was a lot of fun for an out and back trial. There are a couple waterfalls with lots of stream and cascade views. Fairly flat and anyone of any physical ability could do it. I will probably be doing this one again as well.

A good hike to do on a hot day. It was in the 90's but next to the river and in the shade, it was very cool. A nice short hike to swimming holes and enough area that it doesn't feel too crowded.

Such a beautiful trail... fun for all the family

Beautiful waterfalls, hike back up was challenging!

Easy quick hike. The climb back is steep so be prepared to work hard after you’ve relaxed by the falls. We managed our way onto the boulders right by the base of the waterfall. Be careful its slippery but totally worth it.

We hiked this in the rain, made it a little more challenging but not impossible at all. First waterfall hike for the granddaughter and with recent heavy rains the falls were spectacular to say the least and she had a blast. True hiker for only being 5 years old. Will return when weather is better, water levels are lower and we can enjoy wading in the water. Highly recommend the hike to families with children, as they will sleep well on the car ride home.

Beautiful waterfall hike in early May. Lots of water running over falls. Be prepared for a steady uphill climb on the return. Hiking poles recommended! Hiked on a hot day temps in mid 80’s with very little shade or breeze as the leaves hadn’tcome out yet. Very buggy. Wear bug spray !!!

Beautiful falls!! Good air. Worth it!

The beauty of this trail is unsurpassed. You hike through a forest with the river by your side. There are 3 river crossings. The third one was high (due to recent rains) so we removed our boots. The waterfall at the end of this hike was spectacular.

One of our favorites! A lot to see along the way; rivers, swimming holes, old dwellings. Very dog and kid friendly. Easy to spend a half day exploring.

It was a surprisingly great trail that has a rock scramble that allows for a bit longer and less traversed hike to meet back with Trayfoot trail. Took three kids and a dog, all loved it and it was pretty easy. Hawskbill is my favorite Skyline Drive hike but this is a close second.

Beautiful trail! Multiple waterfalls. Highly recommend.

This was a fun trail in June. Not too bad with the kids.

well maintained trail down to some nice small falls. hiked it in December so the falls were somewhat frozen. steep in spots, but no scrambling. the boulders down by the falls made it especially interesting and we saw a dozen deer on the road leading in. Will eventually hike the loop, but it was 3+ miles to the falls and back. The hike out wasn't nearly as much work as we though it would be, considering that the hike was uphill the whole way.

Waterfalls are small but pretty. The real draw for me is the beautiful fall color and really interesting boulders and rocks everywhere. It is pretty much downhill most of the way, so you know a climb is waiting for you on the way back.

Good trail for hiking. I hiked the outer fire trail and it was just about 3 miles. The start of the trail has a fairly steep incline to start which will give you a good workout! The rest of the trail had gradual inclines and declines. All in all I nice Sunday hike!

Quick hike, awesome view at the end. A 360 view if the mountains. Even took our 20 month old in a off road stroller but was a little rocky going up some parts for that but still worth it. When you get to the AT stay to the two right paths and you’ll make a loop back. Happy hiking!

Lovely hike! Yesterday's rain made it flow quite nicely!

Very easy, short hike with beautiful picturesque views at the top. Will be very crowded on nice weekend days. Little rock scramble at the end.

So much fun rock scrambling!! Beautiful views!

Great hike to take children and pets on. Nice rock formation to scramble around on and find a spot to eat a snack on!

This was a excellent hike the falls were dry this time of year but a good hike.
