The trailhead is correctly marked but it is not easy to see from your car. It is on the left side as you approach and is marked with a metal gate.

Amazing views, was able to view the falls from both the top and the bottom of the waterfall. Can be slippery and muddy!

Hiked but didn't swim. Really easy walk with some views of a farm initially and two falls. First one was more powerful than the second but good views all around. Lots of mosquitos so bring bug repellent!!

Great views but recent floods made it super muddy and slick.
High risk for falling, spraining an ankle or just landing the wrong way. Do not rely on rocks or tree branches when you have recent floods. Use common sense.
Though, if you watch your step and go slow it’s worth the walk. I would rate easy, and moderate in some areas due to mud.

I liked this trail. Easy to moderate (depending on conditions can be slippery after rains). Some bugs & mud but that’s to be expected. Beautiful scenery! Waterfalls and streams make this hike a great reward for short distance. Definitely recommend.

Great short hike, it is listed as easy but I went after a rain which I think it makes it more moderate of a hike, don’t be afraid of getting muddy.

Beautiful trail. A little muddy but we had rain earlier in the day. Prepare to get muddy. There is a few places we have to weave through the trees. Did it with an 8 month old on my back just fine. At the falls there is a rope swing. Bring a towel if the weather is cooler.

Awesome hike, very pretty. We weren’t paying attention and totally missed the first falls and ended up at the second. We couldn’t figure how to get down to the bottom of the falls to the rope swing but asked a local and he showed us. Where it looks like it dead ends you climb up some rocks and trees on the right side of the trail to a higher trail. Once you walk about 50 feet you descend back down. Rope swing was cool, water felt great.

Just hiked this today with my 13 year old son. We cliff jumped about 40 feet down stream from the first falls on both sides of the stream. The jumping cliffs are about 10 feet high on the trail side and about 15-18 on the other side. I checked the depth before we jumped and the water was over 10 feet deep.

We then walked down to the second falls which are higher but there was no cliff jumping there - just the rope swing which also looked fun, but we didn’t do it. We went back to the first set of falls, jumped a few more times and ate the Subway sandwich we had packed. It was a great day we will both remember forever.

Really neat trail with beautiful views and waterfalls but is all private property and we were forced off.

Two nice waterfalls. The first is a bit more dramatic. The first waterfall has a nice jump just below the main falls into about 8-9 ft of water, you then float down 100-150 ft and climb out on the right. The second fall has a nice overlook and a rope swing in the pond below the falls. Watch out for the submerged rock below the rope swing.

Also look for signs of wild pigs with small wallows.

Really good trail. It is kind of wet in the winter and there is mud all the way.

The trail head is just to the right of a person’s home; last house on the left before the off-shoulder Parking.
Tons of rain recently. The waterfall is FULL, and beware the last 25 feet of the trail is flooded, so you have to forge your own.

Nice hike in the woods to satisfying waterfall views. As is mentioned, use caution if it recently rained as the trail can get very slippery (hiking sticks very helpful).

Easy trail. It had not rained in a few days so the trail was pretty dry and easy to walk, but I can imagine it being a lot more slippery if it has recently rained. Great for groups with children! Lots of areas to swim or take a dip in the water.

Nice, fun, easy trail to some pretty awesome swimming holes and waterfalls! Trailhead isn't marked by gate anymore though, it's furthest to the left once you get to coordinates, there's a small opening to start of trail.

Great easy trail for the entire family, all ages! 2 waterfalls where you can cliff jump and swim around. Can be very slippery if it has recently rained!

Easy hike with two great water falls. Steam views and foliage is beautiful. If your so inclined, you can jump off the side of the first waterfall into the waters below.

Very slippery and a bit more technical than easy to get to the actual waterfall. Really beautiful and enjoyable!

This trail is a beautiful, easy trek with a nice payoff. Both falls are worth seeing. The path can be a bit slippery during or after rain but it's still relatively simple to navigate. As stated, lots of branches to go over or under. The hardest part was getting down to the second waterfall lagoon. It was actively raining but there is a lot to hold on to. Definitely worth checking out if you want a casual yet rewarding trek.

Beautiful walk through the forest. about a third of the way in you come to a really awesome small waterfall with swimming hole that you can Cliff jump into. DO IT! you won't regret it. from there the jungle is very beautiful but the end waterfall is kind of anti-climactic, still pretty, but the first one in my opinion was much better.

Great hike, easy for a family with young children. The incline isn’t steep but there are lots of fallen trees to climb over or under.

If you want to go for a swim, the hike down is right before the lookout point. It’s steep, however, so you might not want to attempt with young children. The waterfall pool is refreshing and there’s a Tarzan rope for the adventurous ones. Just watch out for the rock to the right (when you jump).

This was recommended by a local as a relatively easy hike with our toddler in a backpack carrier. It wasn’t strenuous, but a little difficult to navigate with lots of trees and branches to climb over and under! We had to take the little one off our backs and pass her back and forth a bit. The mosquitos were brutal, so have lots of insect repellant! Some really pretty views of the waterfall at the lookout point.
