Great trail - easy if taking the Sequoia Trail straight to Sempervirens Falls. But I went on the Dool Trail to Middle Ridge Rd to Meteor Trail to Sequoia Trail back to the Park Main Entrance (the map you get from the Big Basin Information/Registration center is awesome). This ended up being roughly a 7 to 7.5 mile hike - nothing too crazy, a few uphills and muddy due to the recent rains.You get beautiful views of the ocean, redwoods, creeks, plants, and other mini-waterfalls along the way. This is just another route to see Sempervirens Falls if you want to challenge yourself a bit.

Nice hike...not too steep for my wife. Little bit on the muddy side, given all the rain recently, but the waterfall was in full flow for the reason...not a bad trade-off!

It was a nice and small waterfall. Quick hike from my camp site.

Nice short hike. Bathrooms about halfway from headquarters.

The trail is next to a paved road most of the time so you never get the sense that you're in nature. The water fall area was under construction so you couldn't approach the water...

There were some cool tree formations on the way. We took a trail back that went to slippery rock which felt more like a nature trail than the waterfall one...

Worth every step! Not too steep and plenty of scenery.
