The trail was easy the waterfall was nice. However, the road up to the waterfall was terrible the road was more like an ATV trail. Unless you come in from Doublehead Gap Rd.

Enjoyed the hike, especially the falls; but be warned. The forest road is not car friendly! Go 4WD if possible.

Took our niece and her guide dog Nathan today . They did an amazing job! It was a first for us all.
I was really disappointed by the number of folks who had dogs off their leashes. Dogs ran up and barked distracting him from his job. KEEP YOUR DOGS ON A DANG LEASH PEOPLE!!!!
Other than those few selfish people, the hike was great and the view was AMAZING. We will be back!

Beautiful forest , nice for camping , dog friendly , although the road to take up there is pretty gravely so taking a sedan is kind of rough on your vehicle .

This is a nice trail to walk, especially if you like to take your dogs along for the hike. The waterfall is definitely worth seeing. I wish there was a little more information about the un paved road for about 5 miles prior to the trail due to the fact that I was driving a sedan. Slow and careful was the way to go. Other than that I throughly enjoyed the hike.
