Because of the dry, dry Summer, the falls were non existent. The path and biardwalk to them is a short, pleasant walk, but no water. Nice smell of musk/patchouli from the abundant flowers.

It wasn't raging in August but it was still a fun hike for younger kids. It was fun to walk along the boardwalk and look at the fish under the bridge. We chose to hike a little further on the Appalachian Trail. Beautiful!

Maybe in Spring, when water levels are higher... but if you intend to go in late Summer, forget about it. Watching your mate pee on a rock would be more thrilling !

Easy / Stroller friendly boardwalk to waterfall is a great event for small children. More ambitious hikers can point off to different local destinations and is part of the AT so will see through hikers

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
