Nice easy little hike!

Great trail for beginners. There was one spot towards the end that got a little steep and may be hard for some people. Beautiful scenery the whole way and not too much traffic. Will definitely be doing again!

Great first hike for our two pups. It was beautiful and had some great spots along the trail for them to enjoy the water. There was a lot of poison oak at the start of the trail but it did not last long.

My wife and our 5 kids, ages 16-2 1/2 to Yakso Falls in August 2018. As others have said, it is a long drive, but I think it was worth it as there is a campground with a day use area and another set of falls right next door. The hike was easy for everyone including our 2 year old daughter. The falls were not gushing, but still had plenty of water coming down and the pool at the bottom was crystal clear. Two of us jumped in and swam in the pool, which was freezing cold! Overall, a very nice hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end. 4 Stars only because the drive up the gravel road is on the long side.

Great family hike. If you can climb over some rocks and loose gravel you can go straight to the base of the waterfall.

Good hike. The .6 is pretty much straight up from the parking lot but you can get right under the falls if you want to! Cool place to see! Follow all of our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists

One of my favorites. Gorgeous view

Beautiful scenery and a decent trail. For mountain biking this trail Should be rated difficult Saw three other cyclists and we all had wrecked off the trail.

It's fun to find the 3rd tallest waterfall and then see the 2nd on hwy 58 (Salt Creek falls). Watson Falls is a short and relatively easy hike with a great end result.

Good family hike, fairly easy and not a ton of elevation gain. Easy for adults and very do able for kids

Hike is appropriately listed as moderate, but it seems easy because the scenery is so beautiful it keeps your attention. Felt as if we were walking through a fairy tale book.

Peaceful easy hike. Great growth and shade at the start and new growth after last years fire towards the falls. Easy access and soft trail.

Visited this waterfall today (along with Toketee, Whitehorse, and Clearwater.) This was my 3rd visit to this waterfall in less than a year (September and October of 2017.) Mist feels great on a warm summer day. Beautiful views along the trail.

We wanted a nice easy hike for my fiancé, our dog and I, and we got it! The trail was very clean and open, and although we didn't quite make it to Fern Falls, Deadline Falls was quite beautiful! The thing that stopped us was the poison oak on the trails since we were worried about our dog trying to get into it. Other than that, we can't wait to come back, maybe this time minus the dog.

This is our most frequented hiking spot, it's beautiful from beginning to end.

Loved this hike! Was so easy and we ended up jumping in the water by the falls!

really beautiful waterfall

It was such a beautiful trail that runs through a lush forest. Basically had the whole trail to myself except for one other person. The falls are beautiful, too!!

Beautiful falls and fairly straightforward hike to get to them. Some elevation and climbing, and a few narrow parts where we couldn't go 2 abreast. Our 5 year olds did great with it; held their hands for much of the hike to ensure safety. highly recommend!

Awesome hike. Easy and dog friendly. It was a little crowded but I’m sure that had a lot to do with the fact that it is Memorial Day. There are a couple of mildly steep hills towards the end but overall a great and relaxing hike.

awesome trail. easy hike with kids and dogs. very pretty waterfall.

My favorite section so far. So the trail head sign here says the trail is "5 Miles" however, I GPS it at 4.6 Miles. I walked/jogged this section up to the next trail head and back down to the Mott Bridge, GPS said 9.3 Miles total, I think the distance measurement in the description is based around "Out and Back", when this trail is actually a point to point, with the Mott Section downstream and the Calf section up stream. Great tree cover, good views, nice trail condition.
