Beautiful Hike. Be prepared to get wet when crossing the creek and yes its cold. We went during the summer so there was overgrowth, and the trail seemed to fade away in certain spots, but sooner or later we ended up back on it. We just stayed close to the creek. It also was a wet week so it was a bit slippery and had areas where minor landslides occured.

Campground was perfect. Beautiful creek just below. Traveled with 2 adults and a dog. Dog loved it, but was ready to rest after the waterfall. As always, be careful of wildlife, we encountered a copperhead on the trail.

Our original plan was to hike to Twin Falls, but the second creek was moving just a little too high and fast for us, so we hope to visit again during a drier/colder time. This trip was a bit more than we expected, but definitely worth it and we look forward to our next visit.
