Candi R. on Wahclella Falls Trail
Perfect autumn hike, even for an out-of-shape solo hiker like me. A bit rocky and steep in parts, but worth it.
I took my 4 year old son with me on this hike. Really easy gravel path to the first bridge & a little waterfall. After the bridge, it gets very VERY rocky & it's a very narrow trail. We got 3/4 of the way up & could not continue due to the difficulty of trail. My son has hiked many trails as well as I & this is no easy trail. Very high drop offs & lots of wash outs. I would do it again by myself but if you're going to the falls do not being young children.
Also, parking is atrocious! Go early.
The falls are beautiful. The hike is difficult for folks not in shape. I brought a friend with me and assumed the trails would be more flat but there is a lot of uphill climbing that again was challenging for someone not in shape. Also, the paths have a lot of rocks embedded in them, which makes for uneven grounds.
