Spectacular Falls
okt. 2021
Worth the hike to the falls. The hike bike was hard-up hill and long. We came back on the fire road which I think was a little easier than coming back up the way we went down. It may have been easier to park at the South RIver Overlook and start at the Fire Road to the just north of the overlook - rather than the South River Picnic Grounds. Make sure you keep going until to get to the bottom of the falls. We think some people didn’t know to keep going.

Great Trail! Low Crowds, Beautiful Scenery
juli 2021
This was my favorite trail of the trip. It's short if you are going to the observation point, but by mid summer you will barely even see the falls from that spot due to full foliage. If you're able and have the time, add the extra mileage to continue down to the base of the falls, where you will find a wonderful trail, with low foot traffic, switch-backing down to the bottom of the falls. Watch for snakes! We had a northern watersnake give us quite a scare until we were able to get back and ID what we saw with more certainty, lol! There were tons of milliepedes too, but those guys are kind of cute with their short stubby legs. Because trekking to the BASE of a waterfall is downhill, the return is uphill. We took the fire road back to change up the scenery a bit, and our trackers counted an even 6 mile hike. WELL WORTH IT!

Scenic short trail
apr. 2021
This is a relatively short trail - only 2.6 miles out and back if just going to the observation point. It's downhill all the way out and uphill all the way back - with a couple of switchbacks - so be prepared for the real workout on return. Trail surface is rockier closer to the falls. Stream crossing is towards the end and pretty easy with multiple crossing points with no danger of getting your feet wet. Waterfall is not big, probably better if you continue to hike down to the base of it but that trail was not immediately obvious so we didn't bother. Overall a very worthwhile "moderate" difficulty level hike and scenic all the way.

Decent Falls Trail
nov. 2020
Short hike to an observation point. Falls are at a distance, but the stream that runs along part of the trail is nice. The hike back up is not bad.

Spectacular ... An Awesome Hike
okt. 2020
I arrived early on Oct 21, 2020, @ 0700 to get an early start. I was the only car in the large parking lot. I was the only person on the trail going down. I hiked all the way down to the base of the trail and was met with a spectacular 83-foot waterfall. The hiking-experience was incredible. The fall colors, spectacular. The trail descent was moderately easy. The descent back up was a bit more challenging.

Along the way, there were so many photo/video opportunities I almost could not contain myself.

I reached the parking lot at about 1130 (I stopped many times on the trail to take photos, videos, and just chill). By the time I ascended back up, the parking lot was nearly full. So get there early!

I highly recommend this trail.

Excellent hike, would def recommend. The waterfall is beautiful. But, be careful on the rocks there were numerous rattlesnake sightings.

Observation point overgrowth
juni 2020 • Familj
Observation point was overgrown with trees and shrubs, could hardly even see the waterfall, hike was very scenic to the observation point, the trail back to the parking lot was not as scenic and a pretty good incline, would not recommend bringing small children

Great hike
mars 2020 • Par
The overlook is fine but you really have to take the trail to the base of the falls. It is gorgeous. I just wish you could see the pool in the middle of the falls without doing some rock climbing. The hike back up was a challenge but felt good.

Easy hike for fit persons
aug. 2019
Clearly marked, easy route through beautiful forest. The waterfalls offer several nice spots to sit on stones and relax or enjoy the sounds.

Disappointing
juli 2019 • Ensam
The hike was nice, but the waterfall was not that impressive. The trail takes you to a stone observation point. The tree branches obscure what could be a great view. Unless, there's another way for a closer look, the view was not that great. I recommend Rose River and Lands Run Falls over this one.
