Busy, steep trail, challenging return.
okt. 2021
Busy trail with a parking lot that fills up. The description of this trail lists it as easy but with a very challenging return uphill.
Believe it. It is steep and there’s a lot of loose rocks.
It’s a good hike though and you’ll meet lots of people.
Take your time and bring water.

The falls are nice but my big takeaway from the hike is this:
Wear appropriate footwear for this trail!!
For any really. But I was amazed and dismayed at the footwear I saw.
A woman was starting down the trail in heels!!!
I tried to communicate to her in my broken Spanish that it was going to be dangerous. Her husband said thanks and they kept going.
Others had sandals, or slip ons and I did wonder if they made it down and back up.
Walking sticks to help.

Just did the hike today.. no crowds, well maintained trail with an incredible waterfall . Take a lunch and sit on the rocks looking at the falls while u picnic. In our 69s and had no problem with the trail, but I do recommend walking sticks .

Not the Hard Trail Down
sep. 2021
We took the Rose River Fire Road Trail down. Not that bad. The killer part of the day began when we headed out from there to see the Rose River Falls.

Dark Hollow is a tough, but great hike

This hike is beautiful and interesting. However it’s very steep. Bring extra water and wear shoes that have been broken in.

Cook hike
aug. 2021
We are not hikers by any means there were some spots to watch out for as it was uneven ground and hills. The falls were nice but much water was flowing when we were there.

Steep rocky hike
aug. 2021 • Familj
Very steep hike with rocks. It’s very dry so not much water at the falls. We’ve done many AT hikes and felt this was difficult.

Beautiful waterfall
juli 2021
Even though, the waterfall was not as large as at other times of the year, it was still very beautiful. On the way down, we saw a few deer. It is a crowded hike so we moved over several times to let others pass. The hike back up is steep and took us about 10 minutes longer to get back up then it did to get to the falls. Not an easy hike for smaller children.

Best waterfall hike in the park
juli 2021 • Familj
We did Dark Hollow, Rose River, Lewis Falls, and Whiteoak Canyon. Dark Hollow is the best one. The path is steep in places. Wear good shoes, not sandals. Water and a snack are also good to bring along. If you've got the time, do the whole trail. Many people stopped at the first waterfall and then went back to the parking area. All three cascades are lovely. The walk back is uphill but if you take your time, it's doable.

Short Hike to a Beautiful Waterfall but…
maj 2021
The round trip hike to the 70-foot (21m) Dark Hallow Falls, probably the most beautiful falls in the park, is only 1.4 miles (2.3k) but the elevation change is 440 feet (134m) making for a very steep trail. There is an upper view point near the crest of the falls which eliminates the steepest part of the trail but the view is quite poor compared to the lower viewpoint at the bottom of the falls. The trailhead is very close to the visitor center and the parking lot often fills during midday, especially on the weekends. Despite these issues, the hike is well worth the effort.

Definitely worth the hike
juni 2021
Long walk down but well worth it. the falls were real nice. Just be prepared for the hike back up out of the valley. some spots on the trail were real rough but I saw people of all shapes and sizes making it to the falls. Take your time and bring water with you. and dont forget your camera. If you dont do any other hike on this drive do this one. it was one of the best we did.
