Although the hike seemed to never end, it was awesome when I finally reached the top.

These falls were well worth the effort, though a little more difficult than Laurel Falls. The trail is not paved, and has a pretty good climb. But, the falls have several levels and are beautiful. You can go behind them as well as walk across the rocks in front of them. We saw magnolia trees in bloom and some great views of the valley!

Pretty and unique that you can walk behind the falls. There is a lama train that takes supplies up the trail and we didn't see them but we could tell they were ahead of us....

This trail is a bit rough but as I recall, I think you can make it to the falls in 20 to 30 minutes. It is a nice hike for beginners as long as you are in pretty good health as it is a bit steep in places and lots of tree roots in some areas. A nice walk through the woods and you can walk behind the falls.
