Nice easy trail along the river. Lot's of wildflowers.

Nice flat walk in the woods, pretty scenery.

Parking tips - Park at the Lowe's across the street & use the pedestrian crosswalk. The bank near the trailhead has big signs all over, "Customer parking only", as do most of the places on the other side of the bridge. The bridge is too narrow for safe pedestrian crossing, especially with kids.

Trailhead is easy to find, nice paved path for a while following the river.

Lots of bikers, other hikers, fishermen, picnickers across the river.

Turn-around point is pretty easy to find, foot bridge over the river about a mile up the path.

We did not see any waterfalls in anyone's back yard; suspect that review is for another trail; Estatoe just keeps going into the national forest.

Good, easy hike, pretty scenery, but nothing special.

What a neat fall. It was literally in someone's backyard.
