A scenic walk to the Falls.

A beautiful area, very scenic. Katy, our guide was informative and helpful. Go early, if it's the weekend. Gets crowded.

Thank you for your review; Katie is awesome! Getting started early can help with fewer crowds, cooler temps, and often more wildlife.

Disappointing for the price
Terri_J

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The hike was a beginner route which was disappointing as it was positioned as more of an intermediate hiking experience. And, the final destination was very crowded and not that impressive for the price. Our hiking mates were lovely but for most this was their first or second hike in their lifetime. I’ve used viator in years past and have felt the description better matched the experience. Disappointing for the price.

Fantastic Hiking Excursion!!

Chris was our guide and he was fantastic! We learned so much about the area, the forest, the trail history and more. We found raspberries, blackberries, mint and poison ivy along the way to the beautiful waterfall. Chris was very knowledgeable but also very personable. During the easy hike he took the time to get to know each hiker in the group, and we got to know him! He even gave us out-of-Towners restaurant ideas and tips! This is a great excursion. You’ll love it-we did!!

Chris is fantastic! Thank you so much for this kind review. He really appreciates this kind of feedback. We know how lucky we are to live and work in such a beautiful play; it is a pleasure to share as much as we can with our guests. Your recommendation means a lot and we hope to hike with you again!

Beautiful hike!

We had such a great experience with our guide Chris hiking to see the beautiful waterfall. We were a bit apprehensive at first that the hike would be too challenging for us novices but Chris assured us that it was within our capabilities. We learned about plants, insects, birds and nature along the way. He even acted as our personal photographer and lended a helpful hand on some of the more challenging rocky areas. I would recommend doing this hike with a guide so you can learn more about the history of the area and it’s lush forests. We had a great time!! Chris was a great guide and a really nice person to boot!!

Our guide Randy was excellent! Though the directions to getting us where we needed to be, to making sure he knew how much we wanted to know about to adjusting the pace for some in our party; he was perfect! I learned more about the area and plants than I ever thought as he kept my 16 year old engaged and had 5 minute conversation to answer all his questions. Very patient, nice and knowledgable! The hike path was absolutely breathtaking!
