Pretty easy and VERY pretty. went in the winter so there weren't too many hikers, it was quiet and pleasant. the stream was lovely and the trees abundant and the kilns at the end are really very cool!!

A wonderful afternoon out with the family.
Trail traverses the creek up to the falls; constant flow from a spring.

My kids love this place so much we always stop by even if we are not specifically travelling to Big Sur. The trails are awesome well maintained, easy to navigate. When it rains the creek crossing are a little more difficult but some good hiking boots will do the trick. The summer I try to get a little wet under the waterfall. Just a great place... my friend calls it ewoks forest...

This trail is gorgeous and the falls are a nice payoff. The shaded trail is very well maintained except for several creek crossings that relied on branches and debris to stay dry. I actually enjoyed the crossings but for those who need a stable crossing it would not enjoy. I wish it were a bit longer but enjoyed immensely.

Great little trek. Not to much hiking more of a stroll to the limekilns and then climbing around trees to see the falls.

This is an excellent hike for kids. Nice adventure and no too far to hike. There is another trail that's 1 mike up to the vista that overlooks the ocean. It's beautiful up there. I would recommend water shoes for the falls.
