The trail was very well maintained and def worth the short hike to the falls. They were great but the adjacent vegetation and abundance of fallen trees greatly contributed to the overall experience. The mosquitoes were out in force, prob bc of the small lake, and the last five miles of the drive were on a gravel road.
It's the first day of May and the temps were in the 70's. The trail to the falls was well groomed and the hike was evenly paced. The fall and the associated 'dripping' rocks support beautiful ferns. The hike is very rewarding. The campground at the trailhead is well laid out
This is an easy and rewarding hike down to a beautiful waterfall and pool. The rock wall that comes off to the left of the falls is recessed a bit and resembles a little grotto. In warmer weather this would be a great place for a picnic. The hike is downhill to the falls and has a few steeper uphill spots coming back out. The trailhead is right off the road around Lake in the Woods and easily marked.
The trail to get to this waterfall is short but has a bit of inclines in places. Lots of ferns and tall trees. The trail is .5 to the falls.
