Great hike to a beautiful waterfall. The hike has many water features and there are times you have to cross running streams. The only negative about the hike is its an in and back and its all uphill on the way home.

My mother was a PE teacher. Her favorite time of the year was Fall and one of her favorite things to do was hiking the Blue Ridge at Skyline Drive. Alzheimer’s took all that away from her. Her battle with that horrific disease ended 10/19/15....More

Went to both Falls; about 3 miles round trip/moderate. Nice hike. Nothing scary. At least one place you can get your feet wet if you want! Probably amazing in the Sping, with higher water volumes.

The way back is grueling. This is an out-and-back trail to a beautiful waterfall, however the trail descends more than 1200 feet. The downhill walk to the trail is relatively easy but the climb back out is very difficult for anyone who is not in...More

We saw a bear and deer on this hike. You hike down so it seems easy but that means hiking up all the way back. Save some energy for that. Falls are nice to see and it is shady all the way.

Nice hike, don't underestimate the return trip. Not difficult, just strenuous. A constant ascent. Nice water falls, be sure to see both. Second falls worth the extra few minutes.
