My family started in just to do the short trail to the upper falls, but decided to do the whole trail and loved it. My daughter was injured so she couldn't do the stairs to the overlooks, but we enjoyed the easy trek through the woods.

Quick and easy little hike. Be prepared to see lots of people, but also be prepared for some pretty amazing views. The lower falls are fun, but in order to get the real views, you need to hike up to the overlooks - about 1 mile round trip. From the top, you have excellent views of the falls as well as some amazing views of the Gorge. Easy trail, well marked/maintained, but fun and worth it.
