Lovely hike. Took lots of photos of wildflowers. We want to go back in the fall, its git to be even more gorgeous. The cottages along the way were interesting to see. I do hope they can be restored!

This trail was a bit more challenging due to the mass quantity of roots in the pathway and the steepness of the path. Lots of resting spots on the way up but definitely a must see. Trail is well marked and heavily travelled. Bring fly and mosquitos spray because they are exceptionally bad on this trail.

Amazing. Heavily traveled trail with park rangers spaced out on the trail. A must see if you are in the park. Saw dozens of wild turkeys and thankfully no bears.

This trail is hard more because of the rocks than the elevation gain/loss. I'd definitely recommend trekking poles! The views from Spence Field are amazing and wonderful! You could stay up there all day!

The falls are beautiful! We hiked to the old Fire tower and back (9.8 miles total). The trail past the falls is a nice single track. Views weren't great, it was a cloudy rainy day. I'd hike to the falls again but not to the top.

Beautiful trail. Ridiculously hard and steep terrain. Absolutely NOT for a beginner or someone who doesn't exercise regularly. Don't wear sandals.
