Beautiful falls! Also beautiful, natural trail, although very short. Be prepared though, there are no bathrooms nearby. The drive over is also nice, because the lake is very pretty.

The falls are a must see for everyone. Beautiful and breathtaking. It's easy to miss so make sure you are looking for the trailhead or you might miss it. Get there early since parking is maybe 3 cars. Easy hike but if it has been raining wear shoes you can get muddy.

Easy hike up, room to play in the water at the bottom of the falls. Hard to find so look close for a small spot to park and a stair case up.

Great waterfall! First part of trail is roughest unless you plan on going towards top of falls, that trail is bit strenuous

You park on the road and yes, the small staircase is the trailhead.
Easy hike, potential for slippery spots.
You wouldn’t expect such a large waterfall to be in this spot and yet it is!
No place to really string up a hammock.
Great spot for photographers to bring clients as it’s not a far hike but the falls are towering and beautiful. Went in the early morning and no one else was there.
Highly recommend if you are going to be in the area.

Absolutely worth the trip. Great time with our family of four (kids are 5 and 6).

Not the easiest to fine, but so worth finding. Just watch your distance from turnoff, and at about 1.5 miles start looking for a small (4 car) turnout on your left and then some stairs on your right. You have to go slow to see them. Very easy walk up to falls and one of the most breathtaking things to see. The cool breeze actually feels like AC blowing. Could have stayed all day and just listened to the water.

Short, easy but beautiful. Kids loved climbing in the falls. Went through the week so it wasn’t busy at all.

Very easy trail, not much of a hike, but definitely one of the best falls in the state. Well worth it. Amazing.

I wouldn't give this an easy as the very beginning is climbing man made stairs in the side of a steep hill. the path is very unstable over tree roots & slippery rocks. It was well worth the the short answer distance to the beautiful falls. this app is awesome at helping to get directions & selecting the proper vehicle to take. The last 3 miles is dirt road through 2 creeks so if your in a car you could get water in your vehicle if it's been raining. Trucks & SUVs are better suited. Beautiful ride too.

Family location. Not really a hike but the falls are beautiful and worth the trip. Very busy on weekends and during tourist season.

Didn't get to see it we found what appeared to be a bear print on a few of the rocks and decided it was best to turn and go back. Prints were very fresh.

Went to see these falls with the family. Great for a short hike if you're in the area. Dirt road got rough in a few places, a pickup truck or suv is your best bet to get here.

Parking area at trailhead really small, fits only about 3 to 4 cars.

Falls were quite nice.

A super short hike to an amazing waterfall. So worth seeing. I grew up near Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis, so I just had to see it!

Fun to climb the falls and swim. Not so much a hiking trail but a few hours of swim fun!

A rugged but brief trail with a beautiful cascading steps type waterfall, heavy flow while I was there, I would imagine could be walked in carefully in times of low water.
