  • Multiple reasons to like this trail: amazing waterfall after a mostly down hill hike. Some big boulders allows you to have a small picnic in front of the falls. The way back is a bit challenging as it is mostly up. Two choices: do a back and forth hike or detour on the way back and catch some AT for your hiking records. Overall, beautiful hike. I hiked last in September and thankfully did not see snakes as others mentioned.
  • Beautiful, beautiful hike! Multiple chances to see smaller falls then you get to the big one and it's glorious! The first part of the hike is all down hill so the hike back was intense. There is a lot of poison ivy on the side of the trail so watch out! Three leaves let it be (for the most part). Great vegetation, easy parking, easy trail to understand. It took us more like 3 1/2-4 hours but we were taking pictures and marveling at jack in the pulpits and such for a good amount of that. Really gorgeous hike, but not for the weak of knees. A big plus was a little shop that had bathrooms along the road before we got to the parking.
