    soooo beautiful! i would recomend it to anyone. everythimg was grean and vibrant and the wild flowers were amazing. a great addition to the hike that doesnt add too much distance is the "hetherinton loop trail" it is very beautiful and it keeps you next to the creek the whole time. two cautions, after the first mile there you do switch backs staight up a ravine, and then straight back down. the signs are also really tricky! my boyfriend and i are both experianced hikers and we got really lost! the large vertical writing on the trail marker tells you what trail that trail goes to, and the small horizintal writing tells you what trail it is.

    5 stars on a beautiful spring day like today when the waterfalls are flowing and the flowers are blooming. If it was the middle of the summer I doubt I'd have the same feelings about this trail but nonetheless its still a good escape outdoors. Trail starts off flat then heads straight up about 1200 feet then levels out again for some amazing views of the falls and Eagle's Point (?) before descending back down. All things said come in the spring or after a good rain to get the most out of this trail.
