It’s a beautiful hike. It took a little longer than we planned but it was really nice.

This is a nice, moderate hike with a stunning waterfall to reward your 1.1 mile trek out. I went for the first time in mid-November of this year on a cool, crisp morning. The trail is well-traversed and, for the most part, easy to hike. There are a few short stretches with steep and rocky terrain but is otherwise totally doable and easy. Before getting off the highway make sure you tap the location button and open it in your mobile maps app. It will take you to the exact location (the trailhead is tucked away a bit in the woods!)

Hiked this trail with my dog. i chose the second trail head because of time. Entrance is about 2.7 miles on forest road #195, off of hwy 90. The road is gravel and you won’t need a 4 wheel drive. I actually passed up the entrance to the trail, and had to back track and look closely. There is an entrance that is about 0.7 mile off of hwy 90, but this is a longer trail. Today the leaves are covering the trail but it is still fairly easily visualized. Be careful because they are also slick. The trail follows alongside the creek most of the trail. Right before reaching the falls, the trail forked and I followed the right which leads to a dead end but it is very dangerous because it is the top of the cliff that is parallel to the falls. This really needs a caution sign because you could easily slip and fall over this cliff if you aren’t paying close attention!The falls are gorgeous and there are plenty of rocks to climb on and the falls is easy to access and I look forward to hiking this trail again!

This hike was beautiful! Definitely worth it to see the falls at the end, however it was a bit strenuous with a child. There are a lot of rocks and steep inclines that could be difficult for young children. Experienced adults should have no problem. I carried my almost 3 year old son in and out and whew, it was rough! Gorgeous, gorgeous rocks and waterfall though!

This was a great, scenic hike! Perfect for bringing my dog with lots of water for him to jump in to cool off on a hot day. The hike was moderate but not too strenuous and the waterfall at the end was definitely worth it! There were a couple groups of people at the waterfall when we arrived but the rest of the trail was not too busy. The road to the parking area was a dirt road with quite a few pot holes so I would recommend taking a larger suv or car with all wheel drive.

This trail was very strenuous but was a pretty end by the falls. Took a while to go in and back. The trail itself had many stops along the way with a lot of pretty rock formations and shaded spots.

Did this trail yesterday with my husband and lazy 9year old dog. Lots of hills and rocky areas but my dog did it all!!! He was exhausted after but still smiling... we had the falls to ourselves it was so peaceful and worth the trip. The directions took us right to the starting point for the 2 mile hike it's a long gravel road...take the trail to the left go over the bridge you'll see a sign
