I find this funny because these falls are on the Gorge and Rim trails which are rated as easy (I left my review on that page.)

I'd rate this as a 4 for scenic views and a 3 for overall hike. Stopping to take pictures, it only took me 2.5 hours. I'd def recommend starting at the lower parking lot and doing the Gorge Trail first, then the Rim Trail. (This will help you to avoid going up the staircase.) I'd rate this as an easy hike with brief moderate spots that will get your heart rate up.

Pretty trail, with a nice lake at the end. I tried exploring a pretty waterfall and a trail from there but ended up getting lost. Good trail for a jog.
