Good Hike for Beginners

At 4.4 miles, the hike is somewhat long for people who have never really hiked before. However, there is not much of an elevation gain and the trail is not terribly rough, except... read more

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

At 4.4 miles, the hike is somewhat long for people who have never really hiked before. However, there is not much of an elevation gain and the trail is not terribly rough, except for maybe the last 1/10th of a mile. Nice waterfall, we saw it after a big snowstorm so the falls were full but I could see how... More

When we went to this water fall, the hike was the worst hike I've ever had. By the time we made it to the waterfall it looked like somebody was hanging a water hose over the mountain for the little water we saw. It was definitely not worth the hike. Don't do it!!!

The hike itself was beautiful lots of places to stop and take pictures! Being a beginning hiker and honestly not too in shape it was enjoyable. You can stop and and rest and natures beauty if you get tired. The falls were so pretty too. Loved the experience :)
