We just completed this hike and enjoyed it. I would consider it easy to moderate (however if you try to continue on to Bailey Falls, I would consider it moderate to strenuous due to climbing and bushwhacking). Several creek crossings at this time of year the water levels were low so we went rock to rock and didn’t get wet but when there has been more precipitation, I could see having to wade the creeks. We took our time and spent a lot of time looking around, so our overall trip was 3.5 hours (and we only made it to Glen Falls due to it being 20 degrees outside and we didn’t pack our waders to wade the creek up to Bailey Falls). Total length according to my GPS was 3.7 miles up to Glen Falls. I would highly recommend this trail during the non-snaky times of the year. The creeks, the cliffs, rhododendron, and forest were beautiful!
A cold crossing for the winter but worth it. The cliffs around the falls remind me of some of the mountains out west just smaller they circle the falls
