The trail hasn't been taken care of from what I could see. Used the recorded trail map given and it was difficult to follow due to no cell service (you have to buy pro to use offline). Got lost a few times due to the lack of upkeep (fallen trees) on the trail and there were multiple pathways from the main trail. There is also a Ranger area that was restricted near the trail. Also, if you're okay with your shoes getting wet or taking off your shoes, you cross the river on this hike. Didn't get to complete the entire trail due to the sun setting and it raining on us halfway. Aside from that, it was beautiful and would definitely go back to clear up the trail and try again.

This trail is more of a drive up to the waterfall. It is on a ranger training base facility. The waterfall is pretty and calming, but there was no hiking involved.

very remote forested trail. I found it very interesting to explore the trails in this region. trail is not marked and there is more than one way to go. I loved it. the 2 waterfalls were beautiful.
