Bolinas-Fairfax Road is closed so we had to walk from the intersection up at Ridgecrest Way which added 4 miles to the hike but it was 100% worth the hassle. It was pouring down and the falls were gushing - it was incredible. Highly recommended after big storms.
Great trail. Seen a lot of waterfalls. We hiked this last December waterfalls are just amazing.
One of the most beautiful hikes ever. I tried to go here on Sunday and the road was closed and it would have been a 4 mile walk to get to the trail head. The road was closed due to storm damage. We did Carson Falls instead which was also very nice. Just a heads up that the road may be closed if you try and go this coming weekend.
Amazing beautiful waterfalls so full
Lovely, strenuous hike. Go after a rainy period for best results !
Moderately trafficked. Very easy & scenic. Mostly covered/shady. A must see after winter rains!
Beautiful hike, a little challenging for my 6 yo boy as the trail is steep and rugged.
Very scenic. Great for kids.
An absolutely Beautiful hike from the mountains to the coast line...
