This is a fab trail for a 9 mile easy hike. Met some lovely people and enjoyed our own conversations. The falls at the end are lovely and welcoming of daring feats at the falls. Great for families and pets.

Built on an old railway this hike is very good for beginners but a little boring as the majority of it is straight and flat. The best part was when it veered off into the woods and had some incline. The view of the falls...More

You have to stop at these places don't you? Though with the summer that we've had the water level was not high so not so spectacular.

Moderate plus in difficulty, muddy, on the plus size even if you do a portion of hike, great water views and falls will be rewarding at shorter part as well. Would bring family next time!

There are some areas of the falls where it is safe to swim. There are other areas you cannot swim and they are marked no swimming.
