dogs on leash
You know those trails you overlook cause there short and you think "I'd rather do something with distance" this is not that trail to say that! It Unloads beautiful rock formations from the get go and doesn't stop! There are a few camp sites that look like repellers may use. All in all, a fantastic 1.2mi!!

I love this place!! So peaceful and the waterfalls are magnificent during the Spring and Summer. Very steep cliffs in area but well worth the hike!
Off the main roads. Feels like you're stepping into a different world with all the greenery and waterfalls. Moss covered rocks and ferns all over. High rock formations with looping trails. My dog goes crazy over this trail as well. The bottom of the falls tends to be colder and more secluded.
For the most part this trail was good for young children, but there needs to be some type of sign detailing the smaller loop that leads to the falls themselves. Which actually, maybe it was due to the time of year and lack of rain, but there was no waterfalls, it was dried up. The smaller loop to the falls area consisted of climbing down rocks that was not suitable for very young children. There was also another area on the main loop where you had to climb up rocks to continue on the trail. There was beautiful large boulders throughout the woods, but it would have been nice to actually see waterfalls.
Very nice for what it is. The trail is pretty short, but for what you see on such a short path it makes it especially nice for those with younger children, carrying a meal (Pack out what you pack in!), or just if you don't have a lot of time. The cliffs and stream boulders were much more impressive than I would have guessed the area would hold, and the elevation changes along the path so it is not just level walking. Very happy I took the family and will probably come back.
