Once you get to the waterfall go left on the trail and you can go on Kirkpatrick Trail and then Wallace Trail which makes for a beautiful hike. It will take you down to the dirt road in town. Total maybe 2.25 miles. Beautiful!!

Mostly road hike, but the waterfall at the end is a nice reward. I would done this again as a part of the larger Thomas trail.

As previous poster mentions, this trail is mainly thru the neighborhood with the very last bit on an actual trail. Good hike for young families as our five year old twins handled there and back very well!

This is almost entirely on (STEEP) neighborhood streets; once you get off the road and onto the trail, the falls are barely 10 yards further. The waterfall is unbelievably beautiful. You can take the trail a little further to another, higher vantage, and lots of other trails branch off of this one.
