This is a short and easy hike to a waterfall. It is a good place for a family to go with the kids. The waterfall is best after rain during the winter and early spring. Parking can be tricky though so try and get there early or go mid-week.

Question ; we want to hike this Saturday 3/18 is there a spot to meet friends and hike from there ? So we don't have problems with parking ?

No notice on the map board, but the trail is closed about halfway to the waterfall due to storm damage. Very disappointing but playing along the river was nice. Got some great pics.

Great easy walk with our Labradoodle in between rains.... Rushing creek, waterfalls, bridges. Families with young children, friends, solo hikers passed by but not crowded.
