Easy trail though you do have to cross the stream on several occasions, climb some rocks and climb over fallen trees. Still able to see some water at the waterfalls. Not too many mosquitoes, but enough to require some repellent. Went on a Thursday and only saw one person at the falls, and no one on the trail.

This trail should be upgraded to a moderate trail as the path is hard to find at times and there are places you have to climb. I didn't make it to the waterfall today due to trees being in the way and no signs pointing the way.

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.
