If the water was flowing better it had potential to be really something beautiful. A short hike, good for the kiddies to get a taste of hiking. Parking is $3. Make sure to go after a rain for best chance at good water flow.
it was short but a pretty falls, went in the rain so the trail was a puddle
Great short hike to interesting waterfall. Unfortunately not flowing much right now. I imagine this is a really pretty waterfall when flowing strong. This is an easy hike virtually all under the forest canopy. USFS campsite also, $12 for campsite $3 day use fee to hike. 2 miles total of one visits both falls.
Nice, easy trails for my sons (10 & 6). We saw a black snake and a bear. Our hike was during the week, so not too many other hikers.
Very loud road noise from motorcycles made it sound like the park was under attack from a swarm of giant mutant mosquitoes. Trashy trails and rude hikers ignoring signs to stay on the trail and off waterfalls kind of killed the rest of the experience. We made the best of it and had a decent time, but won't be going back.
Two waterfalls to see and wroth the short hike to both. It is in the mountains so watch your step on the hills. Only downside is its proximity to HWY129, your view of a peaceful waterfall comes with the soundtrack of motorcycles.
It was a cute little trail. Great creek views and a nice falls at the end. The lower falls wasn't much to look at when I went today.
nice hike..shaded. nothing special
Beautiful a falls, but you cannot get in them as they are blocked by wood railing. Pretty flat, easy hike.
Nice easy trail for kids ages 9,8,6, and 4.
