Great hike

Great hike for a beginner

This is my new favorite hiking spot! The trails are well maintained and it's an easy walk to several waterfalls. When we return I will plan to spend more time here lounging on the rocks and playing in the streams.

Best to go after a good rain! Absolutely beautiful!

Incredible hike and absolutely stunning scenery. Beautiful river and waterfalls.

Super great hidden hike. Trail is well maintained. When I went the only other people were two fisherman at the beginning.

Fantastic afternoon hike! Took our two boys and they really enjoyed it too, especially the Falls. Plenty of water rushing over the falls too, so it looked great!

Was a great hike ..

Easy. Fun. Can easily jump on other trails.

Awesome trail with flowing stream and a few waterfalls. Thanks Brandon for the tip to hike this trail. I took a few pics and posted them since there was a little snow on the ground and these pics are definitely a different look with a wintertime scenery captured.

We had an great time here. The trail along the creek was definitely easy to walk. Always a nice view of the water. Good picnic area. Was not crowded early in the morning. Had no problems with our dog on a 30' leash.

Easy peasy hike with beautiful falls and small swimming hole. Don't usually find falls on such an easy hike.

if you were to take your family or friend to one hike in Virginia I would recommend this one. It's easy and very worthwhile; Half an hour up to the falls. You could meader through the woods the other direction on the way back. Takes an hour, with a quaint overlook, and wind up at the old iron furnace. But just up and back along the falls is very rewarding and easy.

Fun easy hike.

I had a wonderful time hiking this easy 1.4 mile loop with my family. I would recommend heading out on the Streamside Trail and returning on the Woodland Trail. There are three bridge crossings and lots of views of the beautiful rocky stream. Everyone enjoyed the pretty waterfall, as well as the overlook and the large early 1800's iron ore furnace on the way back.

Go in the early morning for a more private hike. Starts to get busy around noon.

Actually, it's Roaring Run Falls. I'd say it's a bit more challenging if you're going to bring somebody who's 80 years old. But it is a very nice hike with a lot to see either way you take it.

Difficulty-easy
Roaring run is a relaxing walk with views of big rocks and waterfalls. This trail is well maintained and has a lot of history with old furnaces still standing. This is a great trail to start out on and practice for the hiking season.Roaring run is highly trafficked so be prepared for a crowded parking lot, especially on holiday weekends. If this trail is too easy for you then you can go to the left of the outhouse (bathroom) and hike the "iron ore trail". This is a 5.5 mile hike , there are no overlooks on iron ore trail but great practice and a walk in the woods with light traffic.

One of my favorite hikes ever. You get to see so much for as easy of a hike it is. Next time I hope to take my 80 year old dad with us.

Took the family. Nice easy hour with great views. Stayed streamside and didn't get to check out the other trails due to family, but plenty to do there.

Spent 2 hours on the trail hiking then hunting for slag at the furnace, back at the beginning of the trail. The trails were well maintained with only a few muddy spots along the way. The kids and dog loved the hike. Great activity with the family.

For a short hike, the scenery was great. Along the river on the way up which was moving quickly over many cascades. The falls at the top were a great destination and the woodland path down had some nice views and the quiet rumble of the river in the distance.
