“Great little easy hike”
Review of Glen Ellis Falls

Reviewed 7 July 2014

Beautiful falls. Easy hike down a lot of steps but still easy on us senior citizens. Wear shoes that can get wet. Safety railings are rustic logs that enhance the walk. Need to pay a $3 area user fee for National Forest but it is good in other locations that same day, we got our money's worth.

My three girls (9, 7, and 4) had fun and didn't complain about the walk, so you know it isn't very long. Lots of steps, so not stroller friendly, but even our little one could walk the short .2 mile walk.

We swung through here on a tip from a Wildcat employee on a whim and were so glad we did! We were early in the season (May) so parking wasn't much of an issue but the lot is small and likely packed in the peak months, so try to get there early on in the day if you want to find a spot! Parking/fee was self-service and I believe $3. We took a 5 year old and a 3 year old and it was a bit of a hike for the younger ones but not out of the question. At the end of the walk we were rewarded with breathtaking views of the falls. Closer to the road/parking lot we found a tame area to wade and splash. Would recommend stopping by the falls if you're in the area!

Beware of the steps. I counted 140. We were not prepared for the amount of steps. But- the falls are absolutely worth it. Gorgeous and mystical. The path is also a little muddy.

Very pretty spot. Parking is very tight. Not for anyone with walking difficulty. Pay attention to your kids - have been there when creeps are also paying attention to creeps too.
