Beautiful, but short, hike to a nice waterfall. Passes can be purchased any any Big 5 store as well as ranger stations. Other outlets sell them as well.

Get an adventure pass before get there! There are signs posted in the parking lot that "vehicles must display pass", but no mention of where to get one.

Nice, easy hike. Go early before it get too crowded.

This hike was beautiful. It lacks a star just because it's not as long as I would have liked it to have been. We went out, found the falls and headed back to sunset ridge to get more of a hike in. The terrain had us sweating immensely, it's a lot of crossing over the creek. Watch out for rats. All in all pleasant hike.

This hike was a lot of fun. So many Creek crossing. Trail got a bit confusing at some points but I understand that volunteers are working hard to clear it after it's reopening. The waterfall had plenty of water this year and there were a lot of spaces for the kids to play in and explore.

Amazing hike! Great for beginners two friends took me up here and it was a spur of the moment thing but it turned out to be an amazing experience, the waterfall was completely empty and at sunset it was beautiful!!
