Was hoping to see the waterfall, but the near 5 mile loop we followed did not include it. Map provided at the trail head didn't show the location. Overall an uninteresting winter hike with not much of note.

2 hour hike to do the loop. Confusing at times as markers can take you different directions. Following All Trail loop is wise, there are laminated maps, some of which litter the trail. Some times you follow red markers then it changes to green markers. If you don't know the area, definitely wise to use phone tracker. All in all very nice picturesque walk though. Just be a little careful now. Leaves cover vertical rocks and roots.

We took the bottom trail marked "trail head." It goes nowhere and have to come back on same path. Very quiet and easy 2 mile hike. Will try the 4 mile loop next time.
