This trail is a pain to drive to, but a fun hike with a pretty waterfall. My kids (Ages 17, 15, 11, 6) did ok. The younger ones struggled a bit with the mile hike uphill after leaving the waterfall, but not too bad. Trail is nice and clear with benches to rest at along the way.
Great hike. There isn't much water falling in the summer though.
It is a great and easy hike. Really beautiful. It is short and worth it. Getting there might be tricky. it is a dirt road, logging area, hunters, etc. But there is a small sign 5 miles down. You'll have no problem.

Great hike but short very serene.
A nice hike, a little short but still worth it with the bonus of having two waterfalls. Trails are nicely maintained, a bit slippery after a rainy spell which is to be expected. Parking area is small and there are no facilities.
This was fun short hike (out and back in 1.5h with lunch). As the rocks get wetter, use more caution. Not crowded at all, very private. Took our time to get pictures and have lunch at the picnic table at the base of the falls. Forgot a pad to sit on, so we stood and ate lunch. It was also nice that they had put benches along the trail for novice hikers. We used them on the way back up! It was the perfect day to hike.
