    A must do! It is completely doable. Bring gloves, a picnic and patience. Watch where your feet go and have the proper footwear and you'll be fine. I would not attempt this barefooted or with "flip fops" or "sneakers". The view from the base is breathtaking and worthe the notch on your hiking stick to say you did it.

    Entertaining short climb. Very nice plunge pool at the bottom. Be careful!

    After hiking several of the trails in this area, this one was our last and the one I REALLY wanted to try. Took us a moment to find the "trail" head, but upon getting there my mouth fell open. The cable is perfectly sturdy, wavers sligtly at parts but it's not nearly as hard as it may look to go down and up! The rock scrambling/climbing is a blast and VERY well worth it at the bottom! My only confusion is that I'd thought the large ribbon-like fall was THE Fall Creek Falls, not "Rockhouse". One with 2 names? Hmm.

    The trail looks much more intimidating from the top then it actually is. It is a very steep trail, but the cable is there to guide you. Once at the bottom, you are greeted with a beautiful waterfall and lagoon. It is well worth the strenuous trail!
