Beautiful waterfalls. I hiked up on the East side of the river, forded the river a little north of the waterfalls (there is a place from the meadow that is shallow) then hiked back on the west side. When returning, I crossed the river using a huge log that created an easy, natural way to cross. There are two possible logs to use. I used the north one, then walked further south and saw a much better one.

Waterfalls! The best 2 are pretty far back, and the trail is a little hard to locate in places. But that just adds to the adventure part, right?!
