This is a lollipop. Easy in and out. Nice little waterfall to have a picnic or take a nap. We hiked the Three Fork Loop across the street first and then went to the falls to relax. Awesome.

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!
