Fun natural area with a pretty waterfall. Steep drops around falls requires attention with small kids. Beautiful hike to the bottom of the falls.

Very pretty, clear and quiet. A nice couple hours max to do a good low level hike! Can be slippery behind the falls..wear good hikers, and bring water!

Stopped based on the great trip advisor reviews. They didn't fail us, this a gorgeous natural area. We were a bit sad our pets weren't with us, but after seeing the cliffs, I'm kinda glad they weren't. We keep them leashed, but still a scary...More

This was a nice hike. We took our small dog. He didn't have any trouble. The trail was a little confusing because it splits close to the beginning and it isn't obvious which way you should go. You can go either way. You can walk...More

Hiking trails surround the gorge so bring your hiking shoes and a walking stick. The waterfall is about 60' high and you can follow the trails and walk under the falls. An exciting and memorable experience. Also remember it's easier going down than going back...More

I hiked on a Monday. I didn't see anyone else my entire hike. I hiked down to the bottom of the falls. It's very wet and rocky. It's well worth the hike to the bottom of the falls.

Very pleasant 1mile walk thru the woods to the waterfall. You can walk down to the falls and under it. We were a little early in the year as far as the Rhododendrons had not blossomed out. Enjoyable afternoon in nature.

Terrific views of Northrup Falls with trail behind the falls. Be careful around the falls especially in winter weather. Nice trail loop and not too strenuous for a quick hike.
