This is NOT an easy trail. Not a big elevation change but a lot of scrambling over slippery rocks, tree roots, and many creek crossings. Easy to lose the trail so be sure after about 1/2 mile you follow the pink ribbons on the trees. A small waterfall at the end runs into a small, swimmable pool.

Located behind PCC. Drive down until you see a green no trespassing sign to the left. Park there. Walk the trail all the way down until you reach a farm metal shed turn left, cross over the stream and follow the trail. As long as you keep walking up stream you will reach the waterfall. :)
