Great hike. Rocky and steep at times, but very doable and worth it. Best to go on a really hot day, and take your time exploring the waterfalls and pools. Some are big enough to swim in, and a few have smooth enough rocks you can use like waterslides. All in all great if you are looking for a way to explore the eastern woodlands, and want a way to cool off from the summer heat. One drawback, don't go expecting amazing views. There are a few points on the trail where the trees clear enough to see down the valley, but they are rare. Still do the hike, but if you want views, linger at one of the many pull offs on the Skyline Drive as you drive to or from the trailhead.
