Nature tripsGreat!Muddy

Came around 8AM only person on the trail. Get it in early and enjoy peace with yourself, friends or family. Good choice for people that are not in as great of shape and can’t do the longer hikes (James Irvine etc.)

Absolutely magical! We went in late December, lots of beautiful views of the redwoods and ferns, and beautiful mushrooms. Easy trail, our family of 4 had no problem. One of our new favorites!

Super short, super crowded, and kinda depressing to see how much old growth has been cut down. This is definitely a hike where it’s about the journey— not the ‘waterfall’ destination. Good for a short, quick, hike. But if you have it in you to do any part of the Prairie Creek preserve I’d head up north a bit.

Super beautiful hike! It was easy for me and i’m not in that great of shape. The falls are kind of underwhelming even after the rain, but the trees and ferns are gorgeous!

It is an easy hike, however I was so glad I had my hiking sticks when it started raining!

Cool hike, really easy to find. Felt enveloped in the forest. Tranquil despite the occasional noise from the 101. Waterfall was pretty, reminded me of Endor.

I just have to say this might be the prettiest hike I’ve been on. We drove up from Phoenix and hike in Arizona a lot. Beautiful hikes in AZ but nothing compares to this one! We started at 4pm though and made it back just in time before it got super dark. Some easy inclines but mostly down hill a lot. I would definitely do this one again! And we got it done in a little over an hour.

Completely surreal mossy landscapes that make you feel like you have traveled back in time to the Jurassic age! The falls were really lovely and the entire trail was a delight! One of the best hikes in the world for feeling humble and full of awe....and pretending you’re an Ewok on Endor! ;)

Great trail with a lot of variety. Waterfall had a good amount of water going over after recent rains. It’s a good length for a quick hike and not very demanding in terms of elevation gain. Lots of cool tree tunnels and stuff to look at. You do hear highway 101 though. First hike with my 6mo old son in an Osprey pack and he loved it.

Saw it on a map and though the waterfall itself is small the full loop is a really nice hike. When the fog rolls in it gets that spooky vibe going.

Nice hike among the Redwoods; but the waterfall was a tiny stream, and there was some traffic noise from the highway. Beautiful groves.

This would be a 4-star trail if it wasn’t for the noise from cars on 101 nearby. A better option is the Brown Creek Trail just down the road.
