Lovely little walk into the wood to a very impressive waterfall. The short loop (with side leg to viewpoint) has been made an interpretive trail with nice signs of basic trees/plants/features seen along the way. Starting elevation is about 3100ft, so watch the snow level early and late season.

Terrific short hike to the falls. Even in September you can still enjoy the 150 ft drop off the falls. Nice interactive signs along the walk. Good for kids, no real tripping hazards so you can enjoy the walk.

It was short, but a little steep. My mother-in-law had a hard time going up, but the reward of the waterfall at the end was awesome, absolutely beautiful! It would have been nice to have some info about the trail at the trail head. All in all, I give it 3/5 stars.
