4 waterfalls in a 1.5 mile hike, each fall is better than the last

According to the trail info the trail is moderate to difficult, but we didn't find it to be too bad. There were 12 of us ranging from 1 (she was carried) to mid 40's. We walked... read more

According to the trail info the trail is moderate to difficult, but we didn't find it to be too bad. There were 12 of us ranging from 1 (she was carried) to mid 40's. We walked the trail to the biggest falls, this trail is 3/4 mile long and consists of seeing 4 falls total, each better than the last.... More

As a Geocacher and an outdoor enthusiast this was a great location to visit. My husband whom is neither even enjoyed himself.

What a grand place to visit. The falls were beautiful and you can get so close at the bottom that you can feel the mist from the falls. Tons of photos to take. Make sure to set back a few hours for this hike it will take you some time and the trail is VERY seep and a downward spiral... More

The hike to the falls was easy and very shaded and scenic. Upon arriving at the falls the view was wonderful and the viewing platform was close enough to get an up close view and feel the power of the falls. Due to the ease of the walk to the falls I highly recommend doing this for most people. The... More

What a beautiful park! The falls along the river and worth seeing!! You need to be able to "climb" a little - it's a hike back to the falls - but there is also a dirt road that takes you back to the top of the biggest falls! You just have to figure out how to get there!! I'm honestly... More

A small park with a good hiking trail that follows a fast moving creek. The first falls we witnessed was great but the larger falls was unbelievable. This is a must see if you are in this area!

Burgess Falls is a beautiful place. The park provides a hiking trail, playground facility, picnic tables and of course nature's beauty. If you're looking for a great day outside, pack your lunch and head to Burgess Falls. You will enjoy it.

We hiked these falls after visiting Burgess Falls. This hike was pretty easy even though the signs indicated it could be strenuous. The first portion from the parking lot past the middle falls is quite easy. Everything I read said there are 3 sets of falls but to me there are really 4 sets. The first 2 are close to... More

You can either walk along a semi-rough trail that goes along the river, seeing Lower and Middle Falls or you can take a quicker, gravel/paved path through the forest to see the main Burgess Falls. The Falls themselves are beautiful and very tall. You can't tell from the pictures but they are huge. There are steps leading down to the... More
