This hike is a nice gradual climb up to the falls. The waterfall is beautiful! A great short hike, definitely not too difficult.

Helpful tip: Park in the ample space by the "visitor parking area" sign. From there, follow the road up where you'll pass a quarry. The road leads right to the trailhead.

Great hike, lots of beautiful fall foliage right now. There are a few little swimming holes that would be great to take a dip in during the warmer months! Will definitely do this hike again.

Amazing hike, I loved it. It's all around beautiful the whole hike. But if you want to actually swim at the falls you have to go off the trail and climb down to the falls which was a little treacherous, still worth it though!

Great and easy trail, almost always uphill on the way to the falls which lead to a pretty good workout. Dog loved it with plenty of spots on the creek to get a drink!

This is a fun little hike. Never any really difficult steep parts. Draw back no potty at trailhead.

Beautiful hike! Watch your dogs in the spring when the water is high though, we almost lost one over the falls at the top! (Granted, he's not the brightest pup to begin with, but still :)

CAUTION-directions from App are wrong. Found directions online and followed those. Hiked Nov 7, loved the snow covered trail. Moderate trail with incline all the way! Nice views, enjoyed this hike!

This trail was a lot of fun. We did it on July 15. It was perfect weather. Started the hike around 9:15 am didn't see any other hikers until our way back. Good trail for family's, does get a little steep but not hard. Nice place at the 1st falls to sit and have a snack. After you have a break continue up another 5 min to the 2nd waterfall it's worth it. Enjoy!!

This hike was beautiful I did it with my best friend and had the best time. The walk is uphill but very calming I did it in early morning in June and it was perfect weather and temp.

This steadily uphill hike is well worth the climb. The last half mile is fairly steep and you will have to maneuver around rocks and fallen logs. The scenery in May is stunning. Even if your legs give out before the falls, the streamed hike is beautiful once you get past the quarry.

A beautiful hike featuring all types of terrain and views. (From wide open forest trails to narrow rocks). This trail follows the stream and is uphill the majority of the hike. Definatley worth making it to the falls. And after an easy 5 minute walk from the first falls there is another set of falls. If you make it that far you might as well see both. I would highly recommend this hike.
