This is a challenging trail. It has a very steep and rocky climb. The trail is well marked and has nice views, including a peak overlook.

Great trail not to difficult. Absolutely beautiful scenery along the creek almost all the way up. Be prepared to ford the creek four times up and down.

This is a very pretty trail. Pretty steep, but dog and kid friendly.

Really wet but gorgeous. There is a river that you have to cross over four times on the way up, so it definitely gets you wet. Would like to come back in the summer

Great short hike to a nice waterfall.

Awesome hike! Prepare to get wet crossing the creek

awesome pretty scenery

I just had surgery on my wrist from falling yesterday. I am an experienced hiker, but as we all know things happen. It was raining and I made it all the way down to the falls, but with the combination of my poncho and the slime on the rocks, I fell and I reached out with my dominant hand and I broke Both bones in my wrist and it was in little pieces. However, I don’t won’t to discourage people from not doing it. It is a hard trail so it is for the experienced hiker. I wouldn’t wear a poncho or go when it’s raining. Hiking shoes are a must. Waterfall is gorgeous. It is a fun hike as long as you don’t fall and break your wrist. ;)

Hiked with 5 friends. It rained hard the night before we hiked. The 4 creek crossings were a little difficult due to the high waters. The falls were beautiful and the the woods were lush and green. Perfect hike!

Awesome hike and gorgeous waterfall at the end. Great area for camping at the base and a trail to the top of the falls for a refreshing jump. Would definitely recommend!

Its a short trip, but well worth it. Didn't think the hike down was as intense as everyone made it sound. It is steep, but if you have good shoes or boots, it's no problem. If you end up walking in the water, have good should since slim is on many of the rocks.

it's a fun trip and here is a video of our trip if you like to see how worth it it is.

I do this hike about once a week because it’s a pretty good work out. It’s not the prettiest hike around but I will say that I see deer every single time I go. The creek is nice, and you can hop onto Fall Creek Loop to add a little extra mileage. If you are looking for more of a work out, do the loop backwards (take the bridge to the left instead of the trail marker to the right) so that you are going uphill instead of down.

Hard but worth it!

Good hike. Go after lots of rain so that there will be more water in the falls.

This hike is very steep. Like when I read it was steep it doesn’t compare. I had Bambi legs the whole time. It is awesome at the falls and jumping off is exhilarating. But jump at your own risk!! I would do it again, but not anytime soon.

First time there mtn biking, super friendly hikers and bikers. Not a technical ride but super enjoyable. My next time I will push harder and enjoy some of the things I missed due to first time ride. You can fly thru some sections and there are some banked turns. Not alot of rocks or roots that I would brake for. Greatly maintained and marked. Do it. Start on Chestnut and plenty of options from there.

really nice little falls, use the entrance along the fence, much shorter walk!

Sort of boring but very scenic and crowded. Take the good with the bad, I guess!

Can be a bit of a treacherous descent and a hard climb out, but well worth the effort.

One of the shortest, but most difficult hikes we've taken. Straight up and down, but the falls and swimming hole were worth every step!

A really nice trail. The waterfalls at the end are excellent but the trail makes you work for it. Trail is a mix of flat walking and quite rocky. There are 4 water crossings which were manageable even with the wet summer.

I’ve been there so many times, there’s a waterfall too.

About half way down you will question whether or not it’s worth it. It is.

Make sure you screenshot or have a hard copy of directions to get there as there is no cell service most of the way. The trail is very steep and can be done in chocos but I would not recommend it. It is beautiful once you get to the bottom and definitely a challenge but very fun.
