Nicely maintained trail up to the falls was pretty easy. Good trail for dogs and kids. Footbridge at falls makes for great viewing. The hike beyond the falls is unremarkable and simply connects to the John Wayne Trail which is better accessed from Cedar Falls. You can expect to run into lots of other people and you're never out of earshot of I-90 traffic. There are many better trails to be had.
The most mental challenge was continuing all the way up the hill to get to the falls. I am overweight and I found myself pulling a lot of my body weight up the hill. However, the easy part was going down. And after the entire trip, it wasn't that bad at all. It definelty made me proud that I got to see the falls (which were beautfiul to say the least) and it was a challange that I would like to see myself again achieve. Especially to continue on further down the trial.
The hike to Twin Falls is a great off-season hike. The worse the weather maybe the better. It is popular so go early in the morning or mid-week. There is some freeway noise from I-90 especially beyond the falls to where the trail connects to the Iron Horse rail-trail. A great running trail and a great trail for kids.
