This hike was a bit more difficult then I originally thought; we made our way 3.5 miles (one way) to the Appalachian trail! Wear good shoes and bring water + snacks.
Trail is dog friendly; keep dogs on leash.

The trail starts out paved and easy to the first overlook at the Falls. from there the trail becomes more challenging. The higher you go the better the views. The trails are in good shape and very well marked. The trail has a lot of switchbacks due to the fact that you are climbing over 1000 feet in 1.7 miles of trail. they have a $3 fee on the Honor system. At the top there is no falls view but it is a great view of the Tye river Valley worth the trip to the top. We took our two dogs and they did well on the trail.

Wonderful views from the top and scenic rests along the way. Plan to take your time and perhaps have a picnic at the top.

We hiked this trail again in May after having a lot of rain. The falls were spectacular! The trail is slightly challenging, but relatively easy compared to some trails we have been on. There is a beautiful viewing area located at the base of the falls that is handicap accessible. There is a parking fee of $3.00 and there are picnic tables and a primitive restroom facility at the parking area. This is a very popular trail and there are usually a lot of people there, but because they are spread out on the trail, it doesn't seem crowded at all. These falls are best viewed after rain, but are beautiful even when the water is low. At the top of the falls the views are beautiful. It's a great hike!

This is definitely challenging, but the constant waterfall views along the way make it worth it. The trails are in excellent condition! The falls are beautiful. Keep in mind that when you reach the top, you don't actually see any falls at that point, but the mountain views are great there. Stay ON THE TRAIL. There are multiple signs asking you to. It's dangerous to go off of the trails. Take $3 cash for the 'entrance fee' (no change is given). When done, stop by one of the cool breweries! We did Wild Wolf - great place!
