Beautiful mossy rocks surrounding a stunning waterfall with many hidden mini waterfalls nearby.

Lots to explore, easy trail until just below the falls. There is a white sign leading you to the parking lot of the trail head on the right side of the road. As suggested, only go after rain. There were no signs saying no dogs and we saw several people with them on the trail.

The trail was moderate until you begin to hear the waterfall. Then the trail was became more difficult to climb. The sound of the falls keeps you motivated though! Beautiful scenery! Well worth the hike.
Note: Dogs are not permitted according to the sign at the trailhead. I brought mine because I saw an earlier post stating dogs were welcome.

nice short hike......pretty falls, there was a little water flowing. There was a guy there that told us this was the most water he had ever seen. so be sure to go after we have had some good rains.

Fantastic find. Even in winter it was gorgeous and even better after all the rain we had been having. It seems a little sketchy driving out there, but it is totally worth it. Easy hike, beautiful scenery.

A nice moderate difficulty hike with a beautiful payoff at the top of the trail - the falls may not be roaring, but the rock structure there is really impressive.

Hidden gem and worth the effort to find and hike. No water when we visited but the hike is between easy and moderate, as the trail is good but rocky. Nice falls even without the waterfall.

awesome during wildflower season. The hillsides are in full bloom. Also a pretty hike any time of the year. Pretty good uphill hike at the end to the falls. The falls are usually not super impressive but a pretty area to explore.

It's a nice hike, but the falls were not running too much. It made for a nice little hike after exploring Berea. Well marked, too. Thanks for the great directions to get there!

really fun challenging trail. it is not very difficult, but it is not the easiest for sure. it is just a little hidden to find. we had to ask twice for directions, becuase it is kind of hidden. but once you find it, it is beautiful. make sure to wear good shoes, as some of the rocks are slippery. we went in July , the creek was sort of dried up, and the waterfall was very little.

Google map directions are accurate. Parking entrance deceptive. Not well marked. Looks like your pulling into someones farmstead driveway. Parking is in back. Forest trail is well defined. Beautiful hike. Gets rocky and moderately steep up to falls. Probably best to go after good rain.

Great. Not as easy with children but a beautiful trail.

It is a beautiful spot with short trails. However, there is a lot of trash at the falls itself. There are too many people who have no respect for the beauties of nature. Not only is there a lot of trash like beer bottles, plastic bags and even inflatable tubes but there are also many spots with rock graffiti.
A camp sight has been added along with a shelter and a building with bathrooms. It all looks nice on the outside but is poorly maintained. I hope whoever is running that sight will take control of the area soon or another beautiful spot in nature will be destroyed by ignorant, disrespectful people.

This hike is a gem! Easy trail until the very end and the payoff is worth it. It's like a rock cathedral at the falls. Watch for snakes...a Copperhead was on the trail.

Gorgeous when the falls are running.
