It's a very easy trail and a great view. Nice place to have a picnic. Couple good places to swim to.

Easy trail and very cool falls and bridge. The only problem was that the trail is not marked from the road. You need to go through Downieville and up the highway until you see a sign for the Pacific Crest Trail. Pull over and find a parking spot. Once you're actually on the PCT there's a sign for Loves Falls. The trail is clear and easy and you can hear the water pretty early on. The falls themselves are beautiful and you could definitely get close and go swim above the falls if you choose to.
My partner and I elected to hike another hour or so up the trail and found Loves Creek, which was pretty and shady, and a few beautiful vista points.

Great place just off the road but feels miles into the wilderness. The falls are beautiful and the following pool has jumping rocks and deep blue green water. Highly recommended. Fishing is also great.

Fun hike, easy to miss because it is not a marked trail.
