Me and a friend have backpacked this trail along with many of the trails that connect to it. Very fun trail. Easy getting down to the the falls but definitely a climb coming out. Amazing views, definitely better to go after or during a good rain when the falls are really flowing. If you climb up on the shelf behind the falls and follow it too the right it will lead you to the hidden diamond falls Wichita is Def finally worth a look. There are some really cool twisty trees up there
This trail was a nice loop. Was expecting more from the crash site. People have clearly stolen what was left over the years. The trail takes you up a little climb at first, and then levels out for the rest of the entire bottom loop. You can take some rock steps up to the top loops foe better views, but nothing out of this world. A nice trail, but hasn't been taken care of as far as benches along the trail, and the restroom at the trailhead was horrible. An overall nice trail if you want to get out and stretch your legs and hear highway traffic while doing so. In my opinion, too many other trails in the area are a better way to spend your time.
This trail was a decent little trail. It starts out with some uphill switchbacks, but levels off for most of the lower loop around the mountain. I was a little disappointed with the crash site. I guess I was expecting more remnants to be left, but clearly the scavengers had taken their toll over the years. There is a nice memorial to the servicemen that lost their lives in the crash.
After you complete the lower loop, their are some nice rock steps that will lead you to the upper trails that will give you some nice views. Overall that trail was okay, but you can hear the cars travelling on the highway below and that takes away from any feeling of being in the woods on a nice trail.
Went in late November so not much water on the falls. Only a small trickle on one. Not too impressive. I'm sure it's great during spring. The walk to get there is about 3 minutes, very easy to find.
The road is HORRIBLE. I did make it down okay in my Ford Escort even though a sign at the top of the road said only vehicles with high clearance and 4x4 drive.
I'll have to go back after a big rain
