Took the hubby and the kiddos (10 & 5) on an adventure- it was a great hike. By the end back up the youngest was ready to be done, but it was a beautiful hike. The leaves were falling the weather was amazing. The drive in was a little tough and you do have to drive through a small creek, but once you park and hike to the falls the ride in is completely worth the bumpy gravel road in.
the waterfall was beautiful. lots of butterflies all around. very well maintained trail. the road driving in was a little rough but overall a beautiful hike.
The road in is a little rough and parking is limited, but the trail was well worth it! Two beautiful falls and a decent workout because it's all uphill on the way back.
Really beautiful hike, and the waterfalls are spectacular! The drive to the trailhead is a very bumpy dirt road and you definitely need a higher clearance vehicle. The hike is a lot of downhill in, all uphill out which was a good workout! Loved loved this trail!

Amazing! It's best to go during the week when there is less people. When you find the first waterfall don't turn back there's more!! Keep going down the trail and there are more turnoffs to falls. You can even swim there! It looks like a dream. Luscious falls, boulders, butterfly's, flowers,... All it's missing is fairies.
My wife and I loved it! Wish we would of been prepared so we could of went swimming!
This hike is wonderful. It has all things I love in a hike. Beautiful trail with amazing falls. It is moderate based on the hike back out.
This was great with our friends and kids. Ages 5 & 7 were ok to hike. Take your swim suite and a towel!!
loved the falls at the end and soaking our feet before going back up.
Upper falls were great. I loved that you can swim in the cold water. Lower falls beautiful but rocks are very slippery with moss. All and all a great hike. However, it is about the max my 4 children could handle. (9,8,6,4)
This was a great hike for the Family and dog. We met some great people there.
nice waterfalls. walk back is uphill but not bad.
The drive to the actually trail was a bit risky with a sedan car but it was so worth to risk my car getting stuck, the waterfalls are beautiful and the hike isn't bad. Even got to go for a dip in the water by the waterfall, it was chilly but amazing experience. Four wheel drive would be recommended for anyone to use to get up the mountain.
I LOVE this trail! It has everything!
Great simple trail. Very well maintained
