Park along the side of the road and find the trail to the right of the creek next to a large yellow sign that reads, "NO FIRES." After 200 feet, the trail turns right between two granite boulders and continues half a mile up the canyon to Lewis Falls.

Kind of Buggy and boring. At the top, 2 guys smoking weed and on the way back down, 4 ft rattle snake decided to cross the path. So just be aware of who and what's around you.

Amazing

Great little trail because it's not crowded, short and shady. Pretty waterfall and cool mist.
I lost a necklace at the falls on Saturday, July 15th at around 2pm. I left it on a log. It's not inherently valuable, but very sentimental. Ball chain with blue aluminum ring on the end. I checked around the log on Sunday afternoon and at the trail head, but no necklace :(
If found please let me know. Thanks, Ben

Great hike. Follow Valentinas directions and you will get there! Only down fall is the bugs but wear bug spray. And please pick up your trash and dirty diapers. Not cool

Impressive waterfall for this time of year! Very humid even at 6:30am. If you get closer to the creek it's a little better.

Taking off one star because holy crap the bugs. People tell you that you need repellent and you definitely do. The two areas exposed on my body (hands) were immediately attacked. I had on a mild repellent thinking I'd be alright and that was not the case. Insects of all shapes and sizes desperately try to make their way into any orifice of your body. Mouth, ears, eyes. Pretty sure I had a healthy dose of protein this morning from accidentally swallowing 3 of them. They swarm by the creek, but it's not really safe anywhere. I wish I had brought a handkerchief and sunglasses, probably would have defended me well.

Trail was super easy to traverse with plenty of good points of interest despite being only .4 miles in. Waterfall is about 40 ft high with great water flow. Loved how the trail is just nestled to the side of the road unmarked. Makes the place so quiet and secluded.

The trail is mostly shaded. Once you go past the cabins, follow the trail leading up to a crossing. Cross the creek and proceed to the falls. The falls are spectacular.

5 star route, but not really little kid friendly... there is a lot of scrambling and crossing the creek on logs

Keep your eyes peeled; it's easy to lose the trail, but if you're looking about for the right signs, you should stay on the right track.
