We went to the bottom this time and it was a challenge but it was so beautiful - just take your time and enjoy the walk.

Agree with most of the other reviews, it is a pretty good hike unless you are an avid hiker. For the average couch potato, it is a bit of work. But, it is worth it.

We were a little too adventurous on this hike. We ventured past the third viewing area. From the third viewing point, the level of difficult changes from moderate to difficult.

This place is neat. It is a moderate hike to the upper and lower levels and we did go to falls further down that have no platform viewing area. The hike to these was moderate to challenging.

These are stunning, but there is a hike that is challenging if you go all the way to the bottom.

We also loved Glen Falls...beautiful setting of a waterfall that has a longer drop than Niagara Falls. You don't get super close like you do at Dry Falls but I still recommend the trip to see them

The hike down is steep, there are numerous stairs and several overlook platforms on the way down that provide gorgeous views of the falls in case you don't want to go all the way down to the bottom. The hike back up is tough!!
