Very nice trails - from easy to moderately strenuous. All give great views of the both falls. All leave from the visitors center. Trails to the right (don't remember the names) are easier and most anyone should be able to complete the round-trip. Trails to the left are much harder but give better views.
Beautiful area and not too strenuous for a hiker any age. Have been here twice during the fall and colors were magnificent both times. If you are expecting falls similar to those in places like Yosemite, not even a close comparison. However, if you are looking for a nice, short and easily accessible trail for a diversion from the Blue Ridge Parkway, then this is an excellent stop-off, especially in the fall.
