  • A nice, moderately strenuous hike to a very pretty waterfall. The hike is mostly downhill on the way out and will probably take between 20 and 45 minutes, one-way, depending on how fast you go. If you keep going past the waterfall you’ll loop back on a less strenuous climb out. The waterfall itself is very pretty (7 out of 10) and worth the hike. Positives: Moderate hike so you will get some exercise, pretty woodland waterfall. Negatives: Limited scenic views.
  • Nice hike to a very pretty waterfall ,it is rocky in places
  • Just beautiful.
  • Great hike with a spectacular waterfall. Crabtree falls is easily in the top 10 list of waterfalls that I've hiked. A must see!
  • Beautiful waterfall, trail was a loop, it's rocky but easy to navigate, probably moderate difficulty overall. Payoff of waterfall is 100x worth it.
