Go past the electrical tower almost towards the back of the landfill building. There are a couple of dumpsters. Behind those is where the trail actually starts. Trail is a little over grown in some areas but still easy to access and not difficult overall.

The waterfall is awesome! And easy! Please pick up your trash and don't litter! I saw so much trash yesterday and so disappointed. Don't hike if you're going to litter and ruin the environment people. Jesus. But anyway.. it was super fun and very easy. We parked in the neighborhood a little bit down the road next to the park. The trail isn't marked so when you go past the building and see the trail marker pointing left GO RIGHT. If you want a workout go past the falls and up WHIPTAIL loop. It's about 3 miles and moderately difficult. We did that and had a total of about 4.5 mikes for the day. Watch for hornet, wasps snakes and mountain lions. No swimming and no dogs allowed. Bring a friend and don't go alone.

if at any point the hike doesn't seem easy, check and make sure you are still on the trail... one sign isn't so clear and found ourselves headed up hill a ways before we checked but it made for an extra challenge and a gorgeous view! trail is also pretty overgrown in some areas and only wide enough for 1 person

Fun trail. Trailhead was a little ways away from where we parked. Go left, past the electrical tower almost towards the back of the landfill building. There are a couple of dumpsters. Behind those is where the trail actually starts. Not crowded (Tuesday afternoon) couple of other hikers, several mountain bikers, we were mostly alone. Pretty trees & waterfalls were nice to checkout (saw some crawfish in the pools). Trail is a little over grown in some areas but still easy to access and not difficult overall.
