I’m not sure if the map of this trail needs to be edited, or at least re-designated, but as of today (08/06/2018), this trail describes a simple gravel road. I took pictures to show that the directions lead to a somewhat larger than average turnout at the head of this road. There is no trailhead marker, nor any designated signs along the road. The gravel is a little coarse, so it is possible to hike, but not very comfortable. It is also a steady incline most of the way up until you turn around and head back—and the turn-around point is little more than an odd fork in the road. It is plenty shaded, and it might be somewhat scenic if you come earlier in the season; but most of the wildflowers were past bloom when I went, and there wasn’t much else to look at. The road does seem to follow alongside the creek most of the way, but there’s only one point of easy, direct access, and that point is very early in the trail, at what might be called a campsite only very generously.

The trail is the forest road I assume? Unless we missed it somewhere. Also the falls we found were way below the road, decent sized but not sure if they were the right thing. Beautiful forest, wish there was a dirt trail!

Great trail. I would recommend back packing and walking out next day. Or parking another car at the end. If it's summer bring you suit

It was quite fun to do towards the end of winter but extremely muddy and slippery which made it that much more challenging.

Beautiful trail that follows alongside Fall Creek. Trail head right before Dolly Varden campground. Parts of it very muddy.
