Good trail! Completed in the snow. the trail does not run directly next to the river. you will have to bare right around the private property. Plenty of signs to help guide but if there were no snow tracks we wouldve never found it. Beautiful sights... mountains, rivers, 2 falls.

It is hard to tell where to go once the path narrows about 1/3 of the way in. We walked around the houses on the road(following hand written signs) up to the falls but then walked along the river all the way back to the car. It is worth the hike . Plan on walking through quite a lot of mud.

Easy hike. Follow the river along past the private sign. There is one fall you will get to, keep going to the larger falls. Absolutely stunning and BRIGHT BLUE. There are two trails in parallel along the river one closest to river is wetter. The are both close together! Pick the more bushy one or the more wet one. Amazing scenery of the mountains! Do this walk!

Nice hike to a beautiful waterfall. And not very busy. The trail is wrong, since you actually have to make a detour via the small town, since the trail shown would lead over private property. So it is roughly 500 m longer each way.

this has been my favorite hike so far. no one was on the trail, excluding the horses, and the view was amazing. trail gets very muddy.

Hard to find waterfalls, I saw people taking multiple trails to it. Very secluded, cool little trail to the waterfall. The waterfall itself isn’t huge but quite interesting. Worth a quick stop if you can find the trail. I ended up having to under a wire fence so probably wasn’t the best route. Hard to tell what’s private land and what’s public access.
