Start down the road past the gate. At about 2/10 mile take the trail left. Should be a sign that says Elise falls. Follow this trail about 1/2 mile. Take the creekbed down stream a short distance to a ravine on the left. The Falls is up the ravine 150 ft. Return the way you come.
The trail leading up to the falls is not marked well. But not hard to find if you explore a little. And it's worth exploring after a good rain.
Took last -highway marker down-so have to really watch for road- great falls-wasn't much water , but it would be great to see after a good rain
Trail is very difficult to find. Not well marked. Very steep trail. Would not recommend for kids. There was no water flowing. There was beautiful rocks, but not a family hike. I would rate this moderate.
Elise falls is gorgeous when flowing. the trail done is so so, but the creek and the falls is great. other trails and bushwack option there also. Reserve a day at least to explore the area.
