This is a really scenic trail, but very crowded (except for the "return" part of the loop...most visitors just do an out-and-back from the Falls). I prefer other trails at the park. The Chestnut Knob Overlook is probably the 2nd most popular attraction at South Mountains State Park.

Loved it. Just enough challenge but with reward. My significant other liked it too. Especially the part where I asked her to marry me!

A very enjoyable hike. I would recommend viewing these falls during fall! With the radiant fall leaves, it contrasts the waterfalls beautifully!

Easy trail, great views, well maintained. Not really a trail as it is a collection of look outs with paths interconnecting them but good fun.
