  • Very nice and will maintained trail to a beautiful waterfall. Not very many people on the trail, which is nice. Only a mile and a half but a lot of ups and downs. Highly recommended.
  • I did this hike with my parents a couple years back and it was by far one of the best days I have ever spent with them! My mother hasn't gone for a walk, let alone a hike, in many years. She has had many medical issues and was not going to do it but I told her we could take as much time as she needed and she decided to go. The hike is very easy but is VERY beautiful! Definitely worth checking out! And my mom agreed that it was easier than what she was expecting. It is perfect for beginners, and even if you aren't in good shape or anything you will be able to complete this hike and you will be happy you did so!
  • Short but fun and scenic hike. If you want to be secluded in the woods this would not be the trail for you. Heavy traffic with lots of families and large groups.
  • A lot of beauty on a very easy hike. Great place for pictures
  • Very nice hike on a very well maintained trail. Not too long or steep, good for kids and olds
