It’s a very nice 1.7 mile (one way) hike. The trail is excellent for hiking, very few rocky or rooted stretches. It touches on the falls at a number of points for photos or rest if needed. Moderate grade with several switchbacks. The view from the top is gorgeous. Would love to go back in the fall.

How time has changed this place....my first experience was 40+ years ago, no trail, no people, no parking lot. Now it's packed with people with a well-marked path, and a parking lot that cannot keep up with the demand. Still a good hike up and seems well maintained. Hard to hike with a mask but we did the best we could. Too many dogs...with some dangerously off the path.

You will enjoy the experience of climbing along the waterfall and stopping for photos along the way. It is a steep climb of more than 2 miles, so prepare. We stopped about halfway and turned around, as did others. It's okay to do so. Avoid the crowded weekends.

Phew! Lots of stairs. Wec hiked about halfway up. Falls were amazing! Would have gone further but the spray from the falls combined with a gray morning was a little too chilly for us. Highly recommend this walk...but only to those comfortable with lots of stairs! By the way, $5 now to park/emter.

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic hike on the Crabtree Falls Trail. The accompanying photos tell the real story - even on a very foggy/misty day. The trail is marked superbly. The trail is in excellent shape - well worth the $3 parking fee. This has been the best hike of our three days in the Afton/BRP/Shenandoah area. Highly recommend this hike! See photos!
