Jump Creek is easy to find. I went in the spring when the water was very high and parts of the trail were underwater. Despite the flooding, my trek to the falls was a quick and easy. The falls really are an amazingly beautiful sight out in the Owyhee desert. Saw hawks, coyotes, and people.

this was a neat little rocky hike out to the falls and back. the falls were beautiful and it was a nice swimming spot until it got super crowded. the rim trails were pretty cool as well, definitely recommend making the trip

Short trail to waterfall. Kids didn't fare well with some of the loose gravel on the trail in some spots.

Easy trail. Beautiful area with refreshing Cold water that feels great on a hot day. Easy to pack in your lunch and spend the afternoon. Bring water shoes as it is rocky.

There is an upper parking lot and a lower parking lot. If you park at the upper lot and walk up to the steel marker signs there is a trail but it only takes you around the rim. There is also no mention that it will not take you down to the falls. We passed a dozen people about to make the same mistake we had and informed them where to start.

Once we went to the lower lot and hiked it the trail was beautiful and shaded as you passed over the creek. Definitely need water shoes. Folks with older knees might have a tricky time over 20yards of trail because of steeper steps that ago up then and down to the creek bed.

The falls are chilly and the ground rocky. Water shoes are a good idea. Bring snacks and have a picnic and enjoy the day!

Super easy hike. Perfect for little kids. Wear shoes that can get wet. Enjoy the waterfall. You can play and swim in it.

Was a great time for the entire family, including the young girls. The water fall view is easy to get to and not much of a hike so we hiked up the other trails around the area and that was definitely an adventure for the family. Also 4th July weekend, so yes people are everywhere... Would be great in the fall or spring.
