Easy hike, but steep. Very heavily trafficked during weekend. Lot of people use it as a break before going on bigger hikes, but you can get to the base of the waterfall.

Don't use Google to map which road to turn on to the falls because it takes you one street too early. Make sure you search for the actual road name and not the falls name themselves for mapping navigation in Google. My bad!

When you're at the correct road, it's obvious since there's a sign thanking you for your adventure pass (yes you need one).

This hike is short and up a private paved road (which you must park at the base). I knew from other reviews that the road was paved, so this didn't ruin the hike for me. The views and rocky cliff sides, and the birds and squirrels everywhere still made this a nice short hike.

We went on a Tuesday at 10 am and just barely beat a light amount of foot traffic.

At the top of the road, there is a great viewpoint of the falls, and the dirt trail begins. The "steep" part mentioned in other reviews is probably 6-10 feet and really no big deal since you're walking sideways with the wall and there's plenty of traction. Once you pass this and round the corner, you're at the base of the falls.

And magnificent falls they are. Totally worth this short trek to go see.

This trail is mostly paved road.
Not my type of hike I like to do but we made the best of it by creating our own trail through the Mt. and Creek in the end we made it a very intense hike loved the waterfall

Very easy hike, you can't even tell you walked a mile but great scenery. There is one spot that can be hard for some people, is crossing one side of the mountain which is about 4 feet to get to the other side in order to get closer to the water fall. The waterfall is beautiful! Definitely recommend going.

not really a "hike" follow along a fire road to a very rocky small waterfall. entire area is mostly just dirt and rock. doesn't give you that "mountain feel". however, if you're looking for a steep spot to go for a walk, this is the place for you. just follow the road to the top and turn around. Elevation gain is pretty high, nice stroll for casual walkers looking for a decent power walk. entire hike is a paved road and well maintained.
