  • The hike was quick but the falls were not spectacular, probably due to low rainfall. The views on the ride were the best we’ve seen on the eastern us.  more »
  • A very easy walk to the falls, mostly in shade. Right across the road from Big Meadows with ample parking. The worst part may be the descent/ascent to the parking lot!  more »

  • Not a bad hike down to the falls. The hike back up after relaxing at the bottom and listening to the falls is a little less fun, but that is to be expected. This is for sure one of the busier trails, so expect a full parking area when you arrive and plan for plenty of others on the trail with you. Stay off the slippery rocks and you'll be just fine.
  • So beautiful!! Make sure to pack your hiking shoes I actually hiked this with my husband and I slipped several times going down as it gets very steep! If you dont want to go all th way way down though there was lots of places to get in the creek along the hike! The way back up was pretty challenging but so worth it!
