The trail was not as we expected. The initial part is pretty and tree covered along a creek, but there is litter everywhere! There was no toilet or rubbish bins despite it being a popular destination, and there was used toilet paper and other trash all along the first part of the trail to the waterfall. After we passed the waterfall, we hiked to an area where all the trees were cut down and only stumps remained. The second half of the trail was a dirt road lined with dead trees and stumps from the clear cutting. I would not recommend this trail!!!

The first half of the hike was ok, but the second half was on a paved road. The trail signs made no sense and there were biting flies.
