nice scenic views. has a variety of trails to choose from with varying degrees of difficulty. single file hiking trails that are easy to follow but you would do best to carry the trail map with you. some type of hydration pack would have been nice to bring because it was an exhausting hike. will return in future a bit more prepared

Nice trails on ridge and in creek. Couldn't really tell which trails to do - we did some of 8,5 and 2. Will be back for sure to try more!

This place was awesome. Hiked about a month ago. Absolutely breath taking. 3-4 water falls as high as 85-90feet. Some trails really challenge your endurance and decision making. Trails well marked. views from on top and at the base. Definitely recommend to see, also a cave but it was closed due to bat hibernation.

We hiked 8, 7, 6,5, 4, 3, and 1. Total 7.2 miles. Beautiful falls, very cool tunnel, well-marked and maintained trails. We'll be back! Wish they sold bumper stickers so we could add to our collection.

Beautiful place with great trails! We hiked trails 6,7, and 3. Definitely want to go back and do more. Had our small dog so the more rugged trails weren't gonna happen today. Highly recommend this park!

Beautiful park. Love hiking here. This really is 14 miles even though for some reason it shows up as 4.7 in my completed list

I have hiked all of the trails multiple times and they are all beautiful. Clifty Falls offers a trail that is suitable for all ages. There are flat walks through the forest as well as along the cliff side and waterfalls edge for the more adventurous. Points of interest are very well maintained and stairways have made them very accessible to all.

I parked near Cliffy Inn and walked trail 1 down to trail 2. Trail 2 is a walk through the creek bed. My feet got wet. I rocked jumped for 45 minutes before exiting at trail 8. I walked to the end of trail 8 before turning around and walking all of trail 8 back to the car. Fantastic hike. Hike took a little over 2 hours. I would recommend this hike.
