(hopefully I can update my review if needed once I actually experience it)

The address and trailhead aren't simple to find. Long story short, the parking lot is at Orchard Lake Campground, right up the road, and the trailhead is about 100 yards to the right, inside the campground. Currently it's where the dumpsters happen to be. Oh, and it's probably 5+ miles each way with 1,200ft. elev. gain or so (according to the park maps).

The camp was closed for the season, so it took us the afternoon of wandering to figure it all out. Next time, we hike!

Beautiful waterfall in a nice park setting. Have hiked there several times.
