“Great hike for all ages.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

It's is a great hike for all ages. The paved pathway just make it easy for senior or if your pushing a stroller. After a short 1 hour hike, your treated to a beautiful water falls. For the adventurous, climb down to the bottom of the fall for a great view looking up. The time we went was nice and it wasn't too crowded. The 40s day time temperature, is just perfect for a hike without working up a sweat.

“A little disappointed in the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The hike up the mountain is 1.3 miles with the majority of it being uphill. Once to the top the area to view the waterfall is very crowded so you can't really enjoy the area. I was expecting the falls to breath taking but it was just average.

“Short hike, nice falls....VERY Crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The falls are nice, the crowd is difficult to manage along the trail as well as at the falls. If you have small children watch the edges at the falls and the slick rocks. Allow two hours for this hike. The trail is paved.
