The waterfall is at beginning of trail and it is beautiful. But, poison oak is everywhere, bordering both side of the trail. Some sections there is less than one foot width between the super lush and overgrown poison oak. I am not that much of a naturalist!

Since it's been raining we were able to see a nice waterfall. We were not able to do most of the trail though because the dirt pathway was flooded with water and we did not have water boots. Definitely will be coming back to attempt again.
