Definitely a challenging trail but well worth it! Gorgeous scenery and wildlife. 1 bear siting and multiple rattlesnakes. Unfortunately it was very dry over Labor Day but still could find ample water when needed. 42.5 miles in just over 72 hours.
This is a nice, quick hike. It's a pretty easy trail. The waterfall is a bit underwhelming if there hasn't been much rain, but the scenery is beautiful. If you go, take bug spray - the mosquitoes are horrible! I've never run into many people on this trail, it's one of the best kept secrets. Also, the trail usually ends up being about 3.75 miles for me out and back.
We recently visited this trail for the first time today, nice dedicated parking area. The trail was fairly simple, beautiful place for an afternoon adventure. Due to our drought the falls this season weren't as great as if we would've had rainfall. I'd definitely go again, takes about 3 hours hiking slow.
This took a while for us to find because we followed the directions from the app with our GPS and it took us to the middle of an open field near the campgrounds. so we backtracked and parked just off the road where the bike path began and walked until we found the trail. Because of time and nightfall, we'll have to tackle it another day, but it seemed the most rugged and unctouched of hiking paths we ever started out on. Can't wait to come back to it! The walk on the bike path was lovely, though.
