If you just go to the falls it is just over 5 miles round trip, if you decide to keep going to the top of the mountain it will at roughly another mile. It is a good hike but is well traveled. I personally thought taking the challenge to hike to the top of the mountain was worth it but... More

Awesome hike. It's about 2.3 miles from the trailhead to the base of the falls and it is fairly easy. Nothing too treacherous or difficult, no terribly steep inclines. Just be careful of the roots on the trail, one of our hiking buddies twisted his ankle pretty bad with a misstep. So wear good boots and step purposefully. At the... More

A perfect hike to these falls. It took us, a group of 6, 45 year olds, about 1.5 hours to get there....at a moderate pace. It was nice, we saw just a few people....not too crowded.

Beautiful walk up to the falls and great time enjoying the view and scenery on the way up. Not a hard trail, but long 2-1/2 miles each way.

We made it a point to visit this amazing natural site while we where on vacation. It did not disappoint. Be prepared to walk about 6 miles in total. Good sneakers are a must and a camera too. We made sure to pack water because it is a trek, but also be prepared to have a back pack to put... More

The hike seemed like it takes forever to get to the falls which you can enjoy the outdoors you do have to cross over rivers and the some of the bridges has seen its better days. When you get to the falls its get pretty dangerous one wrong move and you will go down lots of sharp rocks. the hike... More

Unlike Anna Ruby Falls a few miles away, Raven Cliff Falls offers a true hike to a hidden gem. Even on Labour Day Weekend, the trail was relatively empty. It is a well beaten path, but still challenging. The trail follows a beautiful stream about 2.7 miles from a gravel parking lot to the falls. Adventurous climbers can summit the... More

My husband and I hiked Raven cliff together on recommendation of local college students. Just as they described, it was a half day adventure with several beautiful water falls along the trail. We were inspired for future outings by the many primitive camping spots along the way. Some were perfect for a couple camping but several would accommodate a larger... More
