its sweet

Absolutely stunning falls this past weekend thanks to all the rain recently. Overall, it's an easy hike with a couple of moderate switchbacks between the falls. Beware beaver holes and some slick spots.

Beautiful hike. I went with my hiking group. We spent the whole day there. Relaxing, sun bathing, watching butterfly's. Got some amazing pics. Theirs in my Instagram bb_anski. Cliff side some of the hike. Be carful when wet. The width was tight enough j didn't use my poles. You hike down then back up

Such a great hike! The first waterfall (upper falls) is about 1 mile in! Once you get to where the trail continues forward or goes down (forget the name of the 2nd trail) but keep going straight around the corner, there will be two more waterfalls (lower falls)! About 3.5 miles to the lower falls! So beautiful!

Great hike and the waterfalls are impressive, especially early in the year when the water is raging. The hike back uphill to your car is definitely a drag, though!

I love this trail! Very beautiful and very wet. It can be rather cold and wet during the early Spring. The trail has amazing wooden walkways that are impressive by themselves.

Such a pleasant hike. Super beautiful now that the leaves are changing and falling

Nice little hike in the rain. Beautiful trees and water. Very easy terrain.

Nice little hike. Took the family which consists of a 15 month old (in a backpack) and a 3 year old who isn't a perfect walker. HE DID THE WHOLE THING! It could be a chore to get a parking spot in the lot. The earlier you get there, the better it seems

Great for families or a casual hike as it's quite short and moderate in terms of elevation. There's a waterfall along the way, through beautiful old-growth forest, to the two waiting at the end of the trail. If your GPS is like mine, it is liable to bring you there a number of ways. You'll go through some pretty rough and narrow dirt roads and potentially an old grass-covered road barely the width of a car. The coordinates provided by the site are accurate.

The trail is nice. Not particularly spectacular but you're able to get very close to the waterfalls. The last one, in particular, has some great spots to hang out for a while. The trail is very well maintained. There's really no chance of getting lost.

The website says "lightly trafficked" but I went on a non-holiday weekday morning and still ran into several groups of people.

Overall, I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something casual or for waterfalls.

Beautiful little 2.25 mile hike. Lots of small waterfalls. Just a gorgeous setting. We did this hike at 9 am on a weekend in the summer and were the only ones on the trail. Only saw a couple other people as we were finishing up. Our black lab loved the walk and it was nice for her to get to drink and play from shallow water in many places. Trail is nice with several foot bridges - one wood, the others sturdy steel. Mostly dirt/gravel path. Some rocky areas to navigate but overall an easy little hike.

Stunning views and huge waterfalls! Does it get any better?! Three different waterfalls and I was able to climb down to one (would've explored more of the other two if I had time.) and could've touched it if I wanted to! If you do that, the rocks are slippery! So be careful!! It's a good hike. Mostly downward as you're heading in and then the way out is pretty steep at some points. I hike often so it was horrible but it definitely had me winded at times. We went in July and the scenery was stunning!
