Although I was hesitant about the steps it was not bad at all. We had children with us who were able to run right up them and enjoyed every minute of the nature around them. A great visit for all but go in the morning...More

I was a little disappointed. Not that hard of a walk, going down was way easier, but didn't seem as grand as on the infomercial on tv. People were climbing all over the rocks.

Although the Mingo Falls were a little hard to get to, lots of rough terrain to climb up and over, the falls them selves were very nice to see. We were glad we endured to climb and long walk to get the them.

Watching the water was so much fun. I really enjoyed myself I would love to go back. It's a nice place to visit with my friends and family members.

A very easy hike to the falls .4 miles mostly climbing steps. We visited the falls during a rain storm but the canopy of trees and our rain gear kept us dry. The falls are gorgeous but difficult to photograph due to their enormous height!...More
