Fun quick hike, Great views.

The views of the lake are beautiful and the trail was well marked, pretty inclined but worth it. Definitely a quick and short hike well worth the views. I would highly recommend continuing on and doing the Boulder Lake loop to really make the hike worth while if you have time.

Nice trail to a large dramatic falls! Fast downhill hike to the creek and a fun scramble down the rocks to the base of the falls. We met some people who hiked up to the falls from the other direction, a campground off of 55 I believe. I have not tried the hike in that direction.

Nice hike in the fall, with colors. Fairly steady uphill, with a good portion on dirt road shared by road vehicles. Trailhead was a little difficult to find, but it is marked by a sign about 40 yards to the right of a concrete bathroom being installed. Google maps got me to the right place, and All Trails was useful in locating the actual trailhead. My only regret was finding no mention in online descriptions of the road condition to reach the trailhead - fine for Jeeps, trucks, and sport utilities, but not so good for a low clearance road vehicle.

We did not like this trail at all. We went to the left and that was a big mistake. The path was very narrow and most of it had brush on both sides and a lot of horse poop. We did not pass anyone the entire way. It was not enjoyable at all and actually confusing to know what the actual trail was compared to the GPS map. The downhill was very steep and sandy. Do not recommend this trail at all.

I really enjoyed this, beautiful view of the lower mesa falls. Most rewarding if you take the steep hike down through the rocks to be right next to the river and water falls.

Great hike if you only have a few hours in McCall. The trail is all downhill to the falls, so be prepared for the uphill return. Beautiful scenery and worth the hike.

Bring water with you, or a purifier. The only water source is at the falls.. Enjoy!

We did this one right after Bath Rock. Moderate is a good rating for this one. the section right before what is called the stairs is a little sketchy and hard to keep on the right track, but after backtracking a little, found the right way. The trail is maintained well and you will defiantly see rock climbers all over. Overall the entire area is awesome to visit!

Fun hike with my dog. Getting to the base of the falls was challenging, but more than worth the effort.

pretty cool app!

This was an interesting hike. The hike in was good, but the downhill right after you go over the crest of the ridge at 1.5 miles is fairly steep in spots and has loose rock. What is nice to go down is very tiring going back up. The last part of the trail just before the lake is hard to locate so we ended up climbing over boulders thinking it was the path. At times we were not sure we were on the right Trails and a few more trail markets would have been beneficial. The lake was beautiful and we were the only ones there...finally met some others on our hike back out. It didn't appear to be moderately trafficked, but seemed like only a few had taken on the challenge.

it was a nice trail. Very busy over Labor Day weekend. Except for the first steep downhill section it was pretty easy overall.

great scenery and very peaceful
great swim in the falls!

awesome trail. my 7 year old son, 2 year old daughter my wife and I enjoyed it.

Loved the hike. If your out of shape it will take you about 90 minutes. We make the first lake in 50. Nice views as well!

Very nice easy 1 mike hike. The road up to the trail is rough and requires a 4wd. Not much parking at the trailhead so go on a non busy day.

Great hike with our two year old.

The walk to the base of the falls is a pretty easy trek, but a couple of things to note to make the most of it: There's not much of a view from the bottom, and it's worth the scramble up the left side to get to the actual falls.. The beginning of the climb is through the forest and there's some handholds on various trees and branches, but the end is a scramble up some slippery scree. Not a very long climb but I feel this is worth mentioning because it really isn't appropriate for "all skill levels" at that point and IMO worth it to actually see the falls (pictured). Also there's 2 creek crossings, the 1st has a couple single logs to balance on to get across but the 2nd crossing doesn't have any logs. I did it late season so i was able to find some shallow spots to cross, but if it were earlier season, plan to take your shoes off or get wet. Lovely hike!

I biked this trial on a Saturday morning. I only saw one person on the way out and a few on the way back. It is a slight incline on the way out, the entire time. So coming back down is a breeze. Bring bear spray.

Great 2 mile trail starting at the upper Mesa falls and going to the lower. Both Falls are amazing, but the upper is breath-taking as you can stand right beside it. The nature trail leaves from the upper Falls parking lot and is an easy hike on dirt with a bit of gravel in the beginning. Ends at a great view looking down on lower falls.

Beautiful hike! Well shaded and nicely groomed trails but rustic nature with rocks on path to keep it exciting. The waterfalls are gorgeous!!!

great trail for a ATV or side by side, although the trail is big enough for a full size truck or SUV.

Only a third of this trail is a hiking trail; the rest is a ATV trail/road. This means you’re sharing space and dust with trucks and buggies. It’s a steep up with some good views of granite cliffs. The lake is pretty and gives this another star but it’s man-made and warm so muddy. BOULDER LAKE ROAD IS CLOSED BEFORE YOU REACH THE TRAIL HEAD. YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE A MORE CIRCUITOUS ROUTE THAN GOOGLE MAPS OUT. On the AllTrails app these roads are marked as Jeep trails. They’re a bit rutted but okay. Use the satellite map to see what is truly roads. When at the bottom of the hill the trailhead is to the right.
