We recently hiked this trail while in the area on a family vacation. We all enjoyed the hike a lot and it was easy enough for everyone in our group, from 3 years old up to 50+ years old! The falls are pretty and the trail is maintained & labeled nicely! I definitely recommend this trail to other families!

Walked the nice boardwalk with my 5 month old. It was peaceful and beautiful. There was a little up hill walking with gravel but not bad. My son loved the waterfall. Great short afternoon adventure for us.

We walked up the trail up to Thundering Falls this weekend. Most of the trail was a boardwalk, so it was an easy walk. Only part of it was a dirt trail. You could hear the falls before we even arrived to them. Beautiful spot.

They built a boardwalk through the swamp/woods, which is very nice, and turns a hike into a walk. It later turns into a dirt path, but it's mostly level and not difficult. Oh yeah... the falls are nice too.

The falls are lovely and shaded. The trail is over lowlands and nicely elevated and constructed with hand rails. Once you get close you climb up a bit. The Appalachian Trail goes off up the mt. It was an easy walk. All nature, no facilities, no seating just lovely water and rocks! Small wheelchair could get to the far side... More

This trail takes you to the base of a waterfall. You may enter the trail at either end and the waterfall is in the middle. From one end, you walk downhill, but the other end has a parking area and a boardwalk that appears to have been built specifically for wheelchairs and strollers! The waterfall probably is very nice when... More

this hike was a lovely way to spend the day. The trail is well maintained, and the scenery is enchanting. The Falls were in good form this year with lots of water,

We loved our hike down to the falls, but sadly they weren't much more than a stream when we got there. Still, a nice trail, 3mi round trip from Mountain Meadow Lodge.

Started a 4 mile walk by visiting these falls and the followed it up with a hike along one of the other adjacent trails. The falls are wheelchair accessible although to climb up to the top of the falls will require the right footware (trainers as a minimum)

A quick walk down a modern board walk and great for a quick photoshoot. The nature around you is also lovely and we saw a number of unusual plants and pods
