Very easy trail! You basically just walk over the a boardwalk that protects the bedrock. At the end you get a great view of the falls.

Probably my favorite hike in the area. So much fun scrambling through the rocks. It's a great leg work out! And the views of the Potomac are spectacular!

Not too bad. Used to do this trail at a pretty good pace in high school. Nothing has changed much. You have to take it slow in some parts but It's still a decent workout.
