We hiked as far as the first waterfall. The trail needs some TLC as parts of it are washed away. It is all shaded so was very nice on a fall day. It was quite busy on a Saturday afternoon.

Have been on this trail many times and it does not disappoint. Took our 9 year old grandson this time and he really enjoyed himself climbing on rock formations. The fall colors were beautiful too.

This hiking trail was a beautiful experience. It was not too difficult, you could stop at certain points if it got too steep. There are areas that you can climb up into a small waterfall and see a little cave that leads into a stream...More

Relatively easy hike. From the trailhead it’s a simple walking path for about 0.8 miles. After this you are truly hiking. Lots of stone steps, just take care not to slip and it’s a short jaunt to the cave and falls. Didn’t see any falls...More

Easy hike with beautiful views of the stream, waterfalls, natural bridge and cave at the top. Take a flashlight and a sense of adventure.

This hike was great. The first half of it is gravel paved. You are able to see a waterfall, natural bridge, an opened up cavern, and a cave. The Eden fall cave leads back into a large open dead end that has natural spring falling...More

This excursion can be as strenuous as you want to make it. Waypoints are: Eden Falls, Cobb Cavern, and Eden Falls Cave. They were all beautiful even though we visited during a dry point in the season. If you are adventurous you can climb through...More

Absolutely loved this hike. A portion of this hike at the beginning is very flat and accessible. The entire trail is not too difficult, but there are some elevations changes if you hike down to the falls and up to the cave. There are facilities...More

This is my favorite hike in the region. Great for people of all hiking abilities since it’s an out and back trail and you can turn back or rest on a bench if it gets too strenuous. Several cool caves along the way as well....More

It’s not a particular time of year they just have to have a lot of rain. You can follow the Buffalo Outdoor center to give you water levels and rain amounts. There are so many beautiful views worth seeing.
