Easy walk, 3 year old kids and up did fine. Only caution is the wet, slippery rock stairs down to the waterfall. Small children, elderly, or those with walking aides be careful!

Perfect hike with kids. The trail is well maintained, the adjacent river kept things interesting, and the falls the cherry on top. Would definitely do this again.

Great family trail!. We've hiked it twice. I'm sure we will be back this summer. A wonderful reward waiting at the end.

(Sunday) We arrived at 11:30am, parking lot was almost full, but there is more parking up the road. Great little hike, its well maintained with signs to guide you. Would be a great place to go on a nice summer day because you can play in the water (it was only about 2 feet deep in places we could see). On the way back, the parking lot was getting really full.
Recommend bringing water, hiking shoes to walk on the rocks at the end of the trail, snacks, and getting there before 11am.
Dogs are allowed on a leash.

Easy and quick hike! There isn't a ton of standing room when you get to the falls but it is pretty!

Very easy hike and the trail was BEAUTIFUL. Rocks at the end were slippery. With all the improvements on this trail a nice little viewing platform built out at the end would be nice.

Slippery at the end. Otherwise a great short hike for kids.
