  • Beautiful trail, listed as moderate, but very difficult for older parents or those not in shape, lots of uphill. we measured trail longer than the 3.2, we measured 4.4 miles  more »
  • We recommend starting at the Jones Run Trailhead and extending your hike to a portion of the Doyles River Trail to see both the upper and lower falls there. Return to Skyline Drive using the Brown's.....  more »

  • Takes hour to hour and half depending on how good ur! 1000ft decent and climb on the way back. Mod difficult. We did with Lil one on the back n shoulders, was ded by the end!
  • Multiple reasons to like this trail: amazing waterfall after a mostly down hill hike. Some big boulders allows you to have a small picnic in front of the falls. The way back is a bit challenging as it is mostly up. Two choices: do a back and forth hike or detour on the way back and catch some AT for your hiking records. Overall, beautiful hike. I hiked last in September and thankfully did not see snakes as others mentioned.
