I'm giving this 5 stars because it's Indiana and you aren't going to find a better hike in Indiana. The cliffs are awesome. Yes, you'll find better in many other places. But you won't in Indiana. I thoroughly enjoyed this hike. You have to go through Deliverance land to get there though.

Nice trail. We picked a perfect day to try it out. It had been raining about 2-3 days prior to our trip and the two waterfalls were flowing rather well. Kids loved it.

This is a nice 2.4 mile trip. My wife and did this in about and hour. It ok for a short trip. The location is secluded but we were surprised as to how many people were in this little valley. The hemlocks are pretty cool and the cliff line is nice. I'm not sure I would take younger children unless supervised. The cliffs do present a definite hazord. This is a pretty easy trail to walk.

The trail is a short trail but it is a very beautiful trail to see, The cliffs are perfect for taking pictures and the cave is magnificent. Everyone who is into hiking or outdoors should see this trail.

The area is beautiful, although you need to venture off the beaten path and explore some of the older lees used, ill marked trails. A great place to explore.

Would have been 3stars if there was water pouring over the falls. There are 3 sets of falls here, but none of them were more then a trickle while I was there. Suggest visiting after a really good rain.

The trail was in excellent condition and wasn't that difficult to follow. My wife even enjoyed it although she is just a beginner and had on new hiking boots. If you are ever in the area I highly recommend taking this hike.
