well, it would have been beautiful I'm sure, but the road we were on forest road 542-544 just was too overgrown. I was excited to go with my three kids and it was too scary once we reached only .5 miles from the trail. major bummer. we had to turn back and go to our regular river spot to cheer them up.

Short paved ADA-accessible trail. Great for if you've got friends or family with mobility issues who want to hike to a picturesque waterfall.

Long drive, short hike but rewarding view and the chance to cool your feet in the water just after it spills over the edge. We'll be back.

Absolutely beautiful!! There's even a picnic table so you can have your lunch out there while taking in the scenery. If it wasn't so cold I would have gotten in the water....get there early, less people.

Incredible falls and river. You can even hike to the top of the falls on a more steep and difficult trail for an incredible view.

Spirit falls was easy and very pretty, had a nice picnic area. Moon falls was a little drive away from Spirit falls but also very pretty and a nice hike.

Easy, peaceful hikes to the bottom of each waterfall. The hike back up from spirit falls is a little more difficult. Both hikes are short and sweet. I went on a Wednesday and was the only person on the trail. Would do this hike again to experience the beauty of these powerful waterfalls again.

We'll maintained trail and road it's always best to see waterfalls during rainy seasons you will get the best flow little bit muddy in March but as you can tell from the pictures very impressive fall . It's cool you can stand right at the base

Gorgeous trail although I wasn't a fan of the road leading up to it. Loved the falls and had a good time - very easy trail although is very muddy which is expected. Next time I'll hike to moon falls :)

After 3 attempts, we finally found moon falls. Was it ever worth it! Long drive, well maintained gravel road, but totally worth it. Even the drive had amazing views (we took 58). Moon falls is a very short "hike" from the parking area - well maintained trail and my kids (1 & 3) were able to walk almost all of it except for a few steep spots. My advice to others seeking Moon, Spirit, and Pinard falls - do not use directions from websites. Plug coordinates into your GPS.

The drive there was rough, definitely better for cars with good tires since you're on gravel road for about 15 mi. Only made it to the Spirit Falls, very beautiful though! Short hike through the forest from where we parked the car. Let our dog off the leash so he could bound through the forest, and he had a good time wading around in the water at the base of the waterfall when we got there. Picnic table and bench there too, we sat down on a big log and ate our lunch.

Beautiful falls, gorgeous, easy trail meandering through old growth forest. Definitely worth the long haul on a well-kept gravel road.
