Almost too easy.

Easy trail in my opinion. Something good for warming up for the hard hikes. I would do this again just for the baths.

Had to park 1.5mi from trailhead, but that just made the hike longer & better. Peaceful and beautiful. Met a couple nice folks/dogs but mostly was alone.

awesome

Took the jeep up to this trail on 2/25/2017 only to find that the trail was closed. The official on scene said there was a mud slide. No real estimate on when it would be open again, but he said probably by May.

I've been going here for a couple of years and I love it

It has been years since i have been on this trail and my scout troop is thinking about backpacking to the Falls. I do have a few questions and i hope that someone may have the answer. Is there a place along the trail that we can fit about 30 people? Has anyone fished this? Is it any good and is it barbless? Not sure if you can answer this particular post but any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

A nice little hike to the swimming hole

I thought this was a great trail. Started out going around the lake, then through the Forrest, then the best part was following the blue arrows and climbing up the rocks. Beautiful end location. One of my favorites.

great trail but there are more than just one cave. you need to look around the parking lot for the other trail.

I came here on a early December day and did not see one other vehicle. Road is not the best to travel on but it is doable. Very nice views of the river in many places. I stopped at a picnic table looking at the river and had it all to my self. I stopped at the bridge and marveled at the view. I am glad I came here at least once.

It's a very simple and short hike with a nice payoff for the effort. Very pretty and quiet setting. I had the falls to myself. I wish I liked have jumped in but not a good idea in December. I would love to co e back when weather is warmer.

Couple things on this trail, views are amazing! one thing to keep in mind if you are afraid of heights the road down is in good condition but its very narrow and a very steep drop hundreds of feet down so it is definitely a little nervy, but again amazing views. One you make it to the bottom there is a cool little spot where the water is calm that's absolutely beautiful. The bridge is very cool, I was alone so I didn't trek on the other side of the bridge but definitely will next time. Camping spots at the bottom by the river as well.
