Beautiful hike! A bit longer than we had expected, make sure you wear proper shoes or boots! Be sure to be in good hiking shape as well! (; Beautiful scenery and vistas throughout the entire hike. The trail gets a little hairy at times, crossing back and forth over the water, kind of easy to get off trail at times. But very fulfilling once you get to the falls and pools!! We hiked from a little later in the afternoon until sundown, so make sure you get a early start! Also there is a lot of road in the beginning of the hike, we just got off the road and found little trails alongside if you aren't looking for an asphalt hike. Have fun!

Such a beautiful trail the whole way in. And the falls at the end.. what an epic treat! Definitely do this hike if you're in the area.

It's a great hike for any skill level. The only semi-steep part is the last 15-20 minutes before you descend to the falls. Also, after the last crossing there is a pseudo-trail ahead. Usually there are some lines of rocks blocking the trail a little bit. You will be making a sharp turn i.e. a switchback, instead. So, keep looking to your right to not miss this one.
You will also notice that the trail is well maintained, while the wrong continuation is not and becomes exceedingly steeper, tighter and slippery because of the fine erosion.

The falls are fun if they are really full, but even if they holf less water. I would suggest you take some time and enjoy the place. If you take swimming gear, it will be cold, but also a lot of fun!

Fact is: You need to make this hike at least once!

The first half of the trail was somewhat tame with lots of foot traffic in both directions - a good warm-up for the legs at best. Once we got closer to the switchback, the overall quality of the hike definitely increased as the crowed thinned out, the terrain got a little more challenging and the appeal of the scenery improved. Once we got to the "falls" (pools of water), though, it was all worth it. We took our boots off and gave our feet a dip in the cool water, which was a real treat. We actually hiked barefoot from the bottom up to the 3rd pool. Very nice spot to stop, rest and have a snack before hiking out. Round trip it took us about 2 1/2 hrs.

A great hike! If you do not feel like ending at 7 falls, you can continue up the trail and into back country. Much fewer hikers.

This was my first trail using AllTrails! I loved the hike itself, good terrain and great scenery! I hope you enjoy my pictures of the trip.

Just hiked this trail last week and it was amazing. I measured this hike using the tracker icon starting from the visitor center to the falls and it came out to 4.6 miles. For the first 1/4 of the trail stay on the paved road because it's easier and has less people. The next 2/4 is an easy and beautiful hike along the creek bed. You have to cross the creek about 4 times until it starts going up the side of the mountain. There's some switchbacks and you have to climb along the mountain side for the rest 1/4 of the trail. When you reach the end of the trail the 7 waterfalls are amazing. The water is shallow and very cold but feels good after a long hike.

The scenery is beautiful as you walk through the canyon . You'll encounter a few water-stream crossings along the way, most are easy to cross. Near Seven Falls, the trail splits with a sign that reads Bear Canyon, continue on the left-hand trail which will lead you down near the base of Seven Falls. This is a great place to take pictures, or just sit and relax. It took about 2 hours to get there from the parking lot. I would also recommend going early to avoid crowds.
