This Trail is nice! the loop i did was a bit short but there are plenty of trails that you can sure make it longer. The mosquitos were pretty hungry so be ware and bring some mosquito repellant if you are hiking. around mile 2.5 there is a good climb on single trail but be ware of all the poison oak on the side.

Go left as you go out. The trail switches back and is a significant descent. The way back in is still uphill, but not as challenging. Not all that scenic. But, a good cardio workout in about 2 hours.

The falls are really flowing! The hike is a bit short so we did the Sawmill trail, too. Some sites say yes for dogs, but the sign at the trailhead said no...

Lots of poison oak.

The only trail markers are for the 4H camp and the cemetery so it is a good idea to have your phone with GPS to make sure youre on the right path. The trails are basically CA state forrest service roads. The forest is not old growth but there are some great views of Chiles/Pope valley from the eastern portion of the loop.

falls were great. loop is almost impossible to find, no maintenance at all. beautiful area though.

We tried following the trail mapped out here on Alltrails. The start of the loop right now is marked by fallen trees, and there's actually no loop, one can only go right. We searched for the trail going left and it's inexistent, or it looks like no one would have used it for years anyway. We ended up doing a 3.4m hike, and the route was more similar to the one provided by the park.

Well marked Dog friendly (on leash) hike to the falls. The falls are running well thanks to our months of rain. We weren't able to complete the loop due to many downed trees.

Falls were great! Tried the loop depicted on all trails, but it was overgrown. Only way we knew we were on it was gps. Lots of fallen trees and no trail maintenance- probably for years. If you do the loop, bring pants, a gps, and check yourself for ticks (first bite). Again, the falls, which were easy to find, were amazing!
