The falls were well worth the hike but there are some things to keep in mind. It is not the season for this trail so there were lots of overgrown bushes and fallen trees right on the trail. Had to go off trail to go around these obstacles. Also due to all the rain, part of the trail has turned into a little stream, so your feet will definitely get wet. TONS of poison oak, so wear protective clothing and be mindful. Also when I was going to make the loop around there trail was not well marked (at this time of year/ or for me at least) so I turned around and went back the way I came. I took the 3.5 mile section. A LOT OF STEEP UPHILL, SO keep that in mind. Not sure how the other side is. All in all, it was a good hike but I'll probably go back between March and November like is recommended. :)
Started with the 3.5 mile section and came back on the 4.5 mile section.
3.5 mile section is mainly alot down hill with an increase in elevation around the 2.5 mile mark.
The 4.5 mile section is a more gradual increase in elevation back to the parking lot.
Only complaint was the garbage that we saw off the sides of the trails.
If you pack it in, pack it back out !!!!
