Because a portion of the hike involves wading the river, the hike seems longer than its 2. The gorge is only feet deep, and the route is well-marked with new signs.
The descent is marked by a few gentle switchbacks, and portions of the trail are still raw and somewhat mud-prone. When we did this hike two weeks ago, the hillsides were thick with trillium, phlox and foamflower. When the trail reaches the river, turn left, and the waterfall is about a quarter-mile upriver. When we reached the riverbank we switched from hiking boots to river sandals, but given the short length of the hike, we easily could have gotten by wearing river sandals the whole way.
The river holds redeye and smallmouth bass, and you can see all sorts of minnows darting about in the shallows.
We crossed the river two or three times on the short approach to Cummins Falls. The river was moderately high that day from the spring rains, and the falls were in all their glory. Cummins Falls drops 75 feet. The plunge pool at the base of the falls is deep and wide. Long before Cummins Falls was designated a state park, it was a popular swimming hole.
To conclude the hike, simply backtrack downstream and out the gorge. Shortly after topping out of the gorge, take a left at the trail signs to complete the loop back to the parking lot.
There are many areas where the trail is only 3 feet wide and no guard rail. So it all depends on the individual. The hike back is what takes longer because your still sore from the hike down. Plus all the walking thu the river bed and all the boulders and slippery rocks.
Good water shoes are without a doubt a must. You will slip on every rock. OVERALL if you take it slow and not worry how long it will take and go early enough then you will absolutely just fall in love with what you will come to at the end The hike from the parking lot to the falls took about 45 minutes. You should have good water shoes and a walking stick helps. Its downhill, but very rocky, lots of tree roots on the path. Than the path disappears and you have to walk in the river part of the way.
