Most of the hike is actually a steep drive to get to the trail head down a gravel road-very bumpy but honestly not too bad. 4WD preferred just in case. We weren't expecting much water flow during the summer but luckily it had rained the day before. Trail was very simple and pretty!

This is a very nice trail, and hiking to the top of the falls is a nice option! The road down to the trail head is steep and gravel, so 4WD or AWD is a must!

Nice easy trail with a great stream and waterfall. DO NOT ATTEMPT to go the trail unless you have and AWD or 4WD vehicle. Camp Orr road is very steep for 2.5 miles to the trail and has loose gravel. Any car can make it down but only AWD and 4WD will be able to make it up the steep hills.

The road down to the trail was half the adventure! Very steep downhill and dusty gravel road so I don’t recommend for small cars. It’s not too bad if you take it carefully in a bigger vehicle. The path to the falls is really easy and pleasant. Mostly it was just 3 trickles coming down but the moss glistening in the sun was pretty. I was surprised to see fish in the little pool of water below! We went up the trail that takes you to the top of the falls and though some spots felt a little sketch you finally come to the top where the riverbed is all dried out. You can walk upstream on dry rock or look over the waterfall edge if you’re not afraid of heights. I would love to see what this place looks like when the water is really flowing.

Was dry on top of the falls the day we saw it (Jun 30th?) and the third waterfall was only a trickle, but was still a fun little hike. My 7 yo kids and 76 yo mother and I managed the trails pretty easy. I'd go back. Oh.... definitely nice to have a 4 wheel drive for some of these roads.

There are currently only two waterfalls flowing. It's a short trail once you get to the trailhead, but it's a long bumpy road to get there. There is a sign that recommends AWD and high clearance--we have AWD but not high clearance and we made it down and back up just fine. You could probably make in down if you don't have AWD if the road is dry if you take your time.

Super easy trail! Not enough rain for all three falls but the blue hole is beautiful. The road down however was ROUGH! I came out needing two new tires for a Chevy Traverse because we had too much weight in the rear. Be cautious!

The camp orr road to get to the trail is not bad at all. A little bumpy but no big deal. Climbing out is a little tougher than getting in but totally doable. I drive a jeep but I never left 2WD. Just take your time. You can do it. Easy hike to the falls. Take a walking stick, it helps. Beautiful scenery. Definitely go to the top of the falls. It would make a great place for picnic lunch.

Great trail - easy for kids and the falls were gorgeous at the end. Overall was not busy for us. Very short trail to the falls, but there is a trail that leads up to the top of the falls that was pretty neat. My 4 year olds did both with me and they did great. The drive down to the falls were the worst, but we had an suv and saw people in sedans as well. Just watch out for cars that are very low to the ground as it has large rocks sticking out of the road and can scrape the bottom.

Fun trail, the walk to the falls is very easy. There is a longer trail you can take that takes you to the top of the falls. Only negative is the parking. It can get full quickly.

The falls are GORGEOUS. We spent about 2 hours just wading in the pond and creek. There’s also a trail that breaks off of the main one that will take you up to the top of the falls. I didn’t go, but my dad and brother said it was steep but doable. It was a little crowded when we first got there, but towards the end we were the only ones there. Also, just beware that the “parking lot” is very small and only fits about 7 cars. Also, the only reason I rated 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the drive to get there. On the way down it wasn’t so bad, but coming back was rough. There’s one area of the road that was awful. The gravel was very loose and the road was bumpy. This is also the steepest part. When we were trying to leave, there were cars lined up waiting to get out. The first car had to back down the hill multiple times because they couldn’t get up. I had to back down once. 4WD/AWD is a must. I struggled a little bit and I have an AWD Nissan Rogue. So just beware!

With the good showers we got the last couple of nights, this thing was rolling! A bit muddy, but well worth it! Great falls!

I had my 1 year old and 2 older kids and it's perfect for just sight seeing. The hike is about 10 minutes but a must see.

Nice little trail. The falls were gorgeous! Don’t make this your only hike of the day though, pair it with another hike along the Buffalo for a nice day.

Ideally ride in with four wheel drive vehicle. Long steep downhill dirt road in. Getting out with a light weight front wheel drive hatchback was hairy. Nice falls but if you want exercise pair this trip with a second trail.

Excellent falls! Very short and easy hike. FYI: The road to the trailhead was VERY steep gravel/dirt with a couple small potholes. Be prepared.

The road to the trail is long and steep. Takes a while to get there. The trail itself really isn’t much of a hike. It’s barely off the road so if your wanting to hike.. I would chose a different one. Although it is pretty, there are several others with easier access and a lot more to see. Like Lost Valley.

Went on a cold, wet, sleeting November day, there was no one else there. Waterfalls were forceful, and while a little muddy/slippery, we enjoyed going up on the top of the falls.
