There are benches to rest if needed. The top of the rim gives you an all around view of Spearfish Canyon.

    Steep trail with several benches along the way to rest. Views at the top were totally worth it!

    Straight uphill, but the view is worth it! Take a hammock and have lunch at the top before coming back down.

    Loved this hike! It’s only 2 1/2 miles, but the ascent was challenging, beautiful flowers were all over the trail, and the view at the top was gorgeous – highly recommend this one!

    The 1,000 feet climb in only .75 miles was challenging, but we finished it pretty quick. The view was amazing!

    Fun trail but very much up and then down. Was pretty muddy today. Super narrow trail and lots of poison ivy.

    Great workout! It’s not nearly as steep or imposing as some of the reviews would have you believe, but it’s also not for the faint of heart. It’s short and sweet, perfect if you want to add some muscle-building to your waterfall(s) experience.
