The hike is a 4 mile roundtrip, but after a rain fall it is very beautiful. The hike goes through beautiful woods and goes through an area where there is a break in the forest so you can see the sky (It looks like a tornado hit there). The falls are nice. A great hike.

Our family decided to do this hike because I and been there with my parents as a kid over 25 years ago and wanted to share it with my kids. The first .5 mile or so was very enjoyable but after that the trail was more difficult. Lots of mud from all the rain which made it a little dangerous.... More

The weather was ok for us. Not a lot of people on the trail on the way up. Highly recommend hiking boots and not tennis shoes. Trail is steep, rocky and lots of roots but the hike is worth it. I would not recommend small children (under 10). Total time round trip was right at 3 hours.

Husband, two sons ages 8 and 10 and I completed! It seemed like we looked down on the path 99% of the time. There were rocks, tree roots and uneven ground the entire time. It took us about 80 minutes to reach the Cascade or Waterfalls. We stayed a little bit for photos and snack break. We saw a few... More

We hiked up to Hen Wallow Falls on June 9. The entry of the trail is beautiful. It feels like you are walking into a tunnel of beautiful greenery. While we did see people on the trail it wasn't crowded. Parking was plentiful. The hike itself was enjoyable and a little challenging. We brought snacks with is so we were... More

Nice water fall and some awesome views over the park. The trail hike was a bit more than moderate but worth the hike.

Fantastic hike. A little strenuous so you need to be in shape! Great waterfall but the entire hike is gorgeous!

This was a great 2 hour hike. Maybe. Little over 2 hours if you take your time. At least this has signs along the way unlike rainbow falls. Wear comfortable, waterproof shoes. Take water and snacks to eat alone the way too. Great places to take pictures. A couple of smaller falls and streams.

This is a good hike for beginners. The trail is listed as Moderate by the forestry service but beginners may find it to be a bit of a challenge. I would suggest good hiking boots that are water proof as well as trekking poles. Water is also a must and a small snack such as granola bar would be a... More
