Super easy hike to the falls which are pretty awesome! I had the trail all to myself. I didn't see anyone. That was pretty spectacular! The rocks were a bit slippery as it has rained in the morning. Definitely will return!

I completed this trail 12/17/14. Hundreds of stairs, and very strenuous after the first mile. Amazing views after a mile and a half. I did this hike solo and late in the day so did not go up to the rock face. will go back to do it again one day
Overall, good hike.

Great trail, beautiful even before getting to the falls. Lots of wonders all along the way to marvel at. It is a long hike around the loop - near 5 miles - and the upper path is definitely more strenuous. We went out the lower trail and came back the upper and it was a lot of uphill coming back.

Thanks to another reviewer for the direction hint. Put 1234 Farner Road into your gps and the forestry dirt road is directly across from it to the left. Drive in (quite far) and park at the turn-around at the base of the trail.

Great hike! Uphill for 6 miles, and then down hill for 6 miles. At least the middle 4 miles was snow covered, with opportunities for "ankle turning" if you do not pay attention to foot placement. The view at the top was incredible! When you get to the App. Trail portion (take left), that portion you feel like you are at the top but it is still almost 1 hour across to the Fire Tower. We saw no animals at all, not even a squirrel!

hiked this for the first time since they restored it (completed 12-12-14) to see what it was like. I counted 417 stairs, and missed at least 100 earlier on the trail. they did a good job restoring it, but it didn't change the difficulty level for me. also, the stairs were very slick with ice and snow, actually had to hike on the side of the trail for a majority of the trail. forgot my poles, I would highly suggest not forgetting trekking poles, lol

Unbelievable hike! Highly recommend but allow plenty of time. This hike is quite strenuous and you should plan on getting your feet wet in more than one area. Multiple waterfalls, boulder formations, hemlocks, river views. Allow at least 4-5 hours. It is a slow hike but so worth every bit of it. Definitely a new favorite. Cannot rank this one high enough. We are already planning the next trip there.
