This is a great hike I just did this on Friday with my wife and infant but the mileage described above is not accurate. Just be sure you get back to the cars by dark bc they will lock the gate at dark. I didn't use a GPS and we went slower than I would normally but to give an idea it took us about 2 hrs from buzzards point back to the trail head..but we had to stop to feed/change the baby. Hope this helps.

Hey Trey. I'm not sure how many time you've done this hike, but you've underestimated it a little. To do both falls and all three overlooks, you'll be around 12 miles. You'll also have 2 creek crossings which should have plenty of water this time of year. I don't believe there is any way of getting there and back and doing this hike in 5 hours. Good luck.
