Photo Posted. Even after all day rain yesterday--no mud today..! Great stuff...! And the fall wasn't dry as posted. I understand it's pretty much year round. One must climb OVER the granite rocks to get to the other side. Keep your ears open for the falls. The climb over the granite rocks is somewhat sketchy because going up, it seems as if the climb will never end.
This was an enjoyable hike but the fall is dry. Photo posted.
Great place for a swim if you can tolerate the frigid waters.
Nice Trail and easy hike to the falls! Several nice sized waterfalls for a drought!
Easy, with beautiful falls...gets busier later in the day and when the campground is full.
