A great 1.5-2 hour hike. 100% need water proof shoes as the small creek must be crossed a few times. The trail can be a bit confusing at times, first when trying to find the trail head, then as you go along the trail there are times when the trail splits multiple ways. To find the trail head, use the maps on this app. Don't worry so much about which path to take once on the trail as they all seem to end at the waterfall, if in doubt follow the creek. Also this is a muddy trail so you might want to bring shoes to change into for the drive home. Overall, I would do it again.

There were children and dogs on the trail, but it might be hard with very small children.

Great trail! A little tricky to find the trail head, as it is unmarked. Located very close to Copperas Creek River Access. There is a sign for this location. Visited in June and the pool of water below the fall was clear/blue. Visited again at the end of August and the water was dark and murky. I'm sure due to lack of rainfall. Still a great little hike, nonetheless. There is another, smaller fall on top of the larger one, but I've yet to be able to find it.

A beautiful hike and we loved the waterfall at the end. Waterproof shoes are a MUST. You cross over the creek several times.

Great hike and amazing scenery. You go for the Falls but there are so many other things to see and explore while on the trail.

Easy and beatiful trail, I'd recommend following the creek half way to the waterfall.
