Very secluded- it felt like we were in the middle of no where! The drive was long but I think worth it. The two falls at the end are beautiful! A bit uphill on the way back but overall short and pleasant hike.

trail is a little difficult to get to and can be difficult to find. GPS takes you to a road, that if you drive down that road (or walk) you will find the trailhead. Trail can be a little slick, with all the rocks, during the wet season. But certainly is a beautiful trail! 2 waterfalls are gorgeous! and has a nice picnic table at the waterfall where you can eat lunch. just remember to bring a towel to sit on! The walk back up can be a little difficult for inexperienced hikers.

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.

Dont follow maps! I plugged in "Pheasant Falls" and it took me on a wild goose chase! Get to the point where you see "Niagra" and follow those signs. Slow falls but beautiful! Clear clean water and well maintained trails!

loved this hike and was easy enough for the kiddos but the way back was a good enough workout for mom and dad too! very secluded except for one man screaming at his kids.... but other than that it was great!

This was an easy hike but so great. it is secluded, beautiful and serene. The path is clear and the waterfalls (though slow) were very cool!

Great short hike to 2 wonderful waterfalls. Will be back in the winter to see the falls at its peak.

Great hike. There isn't much water falling in the summer though.

Beautiful hike on an early spring day! Very secluded - we saw exactly 1 other person on our weekday hike. A short but lovely hike accessible via remarkably well maintained forest road (though all wheel drive is recommended for the mud in winter/spring).

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.

I put off doing this hike for a long time due to its short length. It is well worth the drive for the small hike because you are rewarded with two of the best waterfalls literally across from one another. Beautiful and serene, quiet and secluded. Loved it!
