Hike itself was good nice views, but it's a loooong Drive from town. I'd say probably not worth the two hours round trip to get there unless you double up the longer Piedra hike fairly close.

You must take the 637 route not the 633 or you end up at a private locked gate that denied access to the falls. So take care to locate the right route.

Nice short trail and view of the falls. The drive to get there takes away from the review although the trail itself and surrounding area was very nice. Try to take a SUV or truck and be prepared for a longer drive to get there.

We followed the directions from this app and ended up at a closed gate 2 miles from the destination. No signs leading to the falls. After a long drive on dangerous roads, we ended up having to turn around and find another trail.

Great Hike for just about anyone. Falls are wonderful and kids can even play in river close to falls. Takes about 15 mins to walk trail one way.

The trailhead is a ways back on a dusty forest service road but the home is short and easy. The waterfall is beautiful.

Nice hike for sure. Perfect for newbies and experienced alike. Still a lot of water flowing. Shaded all the way. The falls cold spray will cool you off!

Relatively easy hike. Rocks may be slick in some areas so watch your footing. Waterfall at the end is beautiful.

wonderful little hike. the dirt road getting there was a bit tricky since it was wet and muddy from a night of rain. I fell once on the rocks next to the falls so be careful it is slippery.

Super easy, beautiful falls. We have been about six times in the last year and it never gets old. Usually lots of tourists, but still gorgeous.

A short hike but who cares? The setting is fantastic with Ponderosa Pine and Aspen forest. The trail is easy but the falls make a fantastic setting for just wanting to sit and spend some time in nature.

Pretty easy, short trail to falls. There were a few spots that seemed washed out when I was there, so watch your footing. Nice waterfall, really nice views of mountains along the way. I was there late in the day (6:30 pm) and no one was there.
