The hike to this waterfall is nice. The falls themselves are not real impressive. There is very little water flow. Parking at the trailhead is very limited and somewhat dangerous to access.

I am 71 with two knee replacements. Although this is marked as an easy hike, I would rate it moderate. It a pretty walk, but some huffing and puffing is required. The end results was worth it, and I would recommend the effort.

This hike was quite nice in late March. The waterfall was gorgeous - I’d guess moderate intensity. And I can tell this trail will be even more spectacular as the flowers bloom. My 7 year old loved it and finished quite easily. My 3 year...More

If you plan on visiting Looking Glass Falls then go another mile up the road to see Moore Cove Falls, a 50 foot tall waterfall. It's about 1.5 miles round trip but an easy/moderate hike. Parking is on the right with a kiosk located right...More

It was freezing, but worth the hike. Well marked and fairly easy trail. You can walk under the waterfall.

[Warning: Young adults from Central Florida in for vacation] The trail climaxes into a thin waterfall at the end. While not very impressive to look at (in comparison to other waterfalls in this area) it’s very easy to get off the trail and actually stand...More

This is a really beautiful hike with limited roadside parking. It is a moderate uphill hike to the falls but most people will do fine (we had age 9-76 in our group) Due to recent rains, there are parts of the trail that are a...More

Beautiful 30 minutes hike to the falls. Easy access. Felt like far in the woods but actually not. Beautiful foliage and wooden cross bridges on the trail.

So glad we went walking in the forest even in rain. The area is well marked and the waterfall is worth it. The hike has several little bridges to get to it.
