Loved this hike. More of a "hike" then what I am use to but worth doing at least one time. I did it early spring views would be prettier in the summer.

Very beautiful! The trail was very winding and had an incline pretty much the whole way up, but had nice views and was easy on the way down.

Very pleasant hike through the forest. We hoped to see the flowers in bloom, but were to early in the season. Also very nice picnic area.

Nice hike to the falls. I would not do the loop unless you like walking back on old forest road for about 2.5mi.

Fairly easy trail, well maintained..felt like the game donkey kong, going in zig zags..Amazing view from the summit! Was a little bummed there was no summit sign with elevation, for I collect pictures of mountains I hike. But overall it was a good afternoon hike!

Trail wasnt scenic, but very well marked. The campsites at the end was full from boaters, but it was very easy to find a beautiful place to hang a hammock and enjoy the gorgeous scenery.

I only hiked to the top of the waterfall so I cannot comment on the rest of the trail. The trail head was very crowded with vehicles parked everywhere on the road and in the small parking lot. The trail starts off on gravel and it stays this way till the bottom of the falls. Once you reach this point you can back track and then follow a more traditional trail up to the top of the waterfall and beyond.
