Completed this hike towards the end of May. I was impressed with the trail. It was well maintained and well marked. There were signs with a map of the trail placed at each intersection to keep hikers from straying from their desired path. There was a good deal of trail roped off near the waterfall (probably due to erosion from the swollen spring water levels?), and it took away from the overall beauty of the waterfall.

before it gets too cold but cold enough to freeze the waterfall makes for a beautiful hike!
