Beautiful small hike down to the waterfall. the trail isn't marked but the best directions was to park across the street at the PCT sign and walk across the street and the trail is right there. i hiked up the PCT trail a bit to make it a longer hike. the waterfall is worth seeing for sure and the water is an amazing emerald green..

Well, we followed the directions below, from one review, but missed the part about parking, and crossing the road! We didn't have wifi nor cell service so weren't able to see the map. We still had a good hike on the PCT!

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.
