Have done this trail several times but today we chose this one for my Mother's Day hike. It's been raining a lot so the trail is muddy but the Falls were heavy and beautiful. This is a great family hike!

This is a great spot for walking your dogs, walking with friends and family or light jogging. It's not incredibly scenic, but nice for after-dinner strolls and chatting in the evening. Very easy trail, no hills and alongside a busy street of cars.

Hiked this for the second time on 2/23/17..The first time I hiked it, was back in June 2016(Summer Hike) with my kiddos. We enjoyed the beautiful waterfalls and eating lunch on the river while playing in the water. This last time we hiked here, we found a few trees down along the trail many had been cut to get through the trail. About 3.5 miles in there was a HUGE tree down that you have to climb over to continue on the trail. There was little snow and ice. Love this trail, always pleasing

So. First time attempting this trail, and I had a bit of a difficult time. First off, turning off the 530, mine road runs straight for a half mile, then comes to a small turnout, with a "school bus turnaround" sign on the left. At this point, take a right, and an immediate left. This will get you to the actual trailhead. Boulders and a bridge on the left marks your trail.
Walk this trail for a while, passing over a few blowdowns. you'll pass over the creek twice, then come across a small clearing with the Neiderprum Trail on your right. Begin your quad workout here .
Now, I hiked this in late February, and after the 26 switchbacks (yeah....), I lost the trail. I traversed two large slide areas, and the "trail" became a steep, almost impossible-to-climb hill towards the summit. Unfortunately, I was unable to locate Neiderprum Landing, or enjoy any views of the surrounding peaks.
Overall, the hike was awesome and I will definitely be returning, but once the snow melts. The vertical gain was more intense than most hikes in this area, so be prepared to take breaks on the ascend. Have a blast, and make sure to sign in.


I expected an end to the trail, but the trail clearly continues on after the purported end. The waterfalls were nice, though.

awesome and great for kids! not very crowed since it's February. some snow but not much. we turned around at about 2.5 miles because of our 6 yr old, but it was beautiful!

Fairly easy- even with the snow and ice on the ground. Great views and waterfall experience.

great place to casually stroll through the woods for hours
