Beautiful water fall and relatively easy hike out and back. Parts of the trail is rutted and it is a bit of a work coming back up the hill when you are leaving but over all this is an easy hike for people in decent shape. If you are really out of shape this could be rated as moderate. The final part of the trail just as you descend toward the falls is a bit dicey but can be easily navigated if you take your time. The cliffs across from the falls are a neat area to explore as well and could be an excellent place to wait out a rain shower if needed.
What a lovely little slice of heaven. Quiet serene gorgeous and private. I backpacked in about a month ago. The hike in was easy which was good because my pack was a bit too heavy. Please note that you need to bring water unless you have a water treatment kit. Animals include that normal squirrels, raccoons and feral pigs. The pigs are not dangerous but they are curious. I heard one snorting around my tent in the night. I always hang my food and cosmetics just in case. I will definitely return.
We had a blast on this trail. This was my first time doing a legit hike. we camped about half way through. 5 of us went. we chose to take the un-maintained part of 204, and even with packs it was very do able (though we did have to climb over and under trees). Over all it was a wonderful time and I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice hike.
It's a beautiful place but not an easy trail for all skill levels as the website claims. Parts of the trail are washed out and lots of inclines especially on the way back out. You need to be very good physically fit or young. Me and my had to be carried out.
