One of our favorites for the beauty waiting at the end of the trail. The waterfall is truly beautiful and the hike would be better classified as moderate to easy aside from a few low spots that cause you to walk over makeshift stick bridges which might be much for the less than sturdy footed hiker. My wife and children (3,5,7 yo) all completed the trail w/o any complications. It’s so worth a look!

Very easy to get too and very beautiful. Well worth the short hike.

There are 2 falls. The first is about half way and you have to walk up the river a ways to see both of them. Both falls are beautiful. The trail was barely used so it was hard to follow. I recommend this trail for a more advanced hiker.
I walked up to the first falls lake and it was beautiful. I would like to do this hike again.

Easy to get to from CR 510. Short easy hike to the falls. 1 mile or less. A number of sources state this is a "hard" trail. That is not true from 510. Very easy.

Excellent trail for snowshoeing; some challenging spots where you have to get across the water. Going thorough tunnel like path created by snow covered trees gave a fairy tale experience! It was around 7ºF/-14ºC, but going with a group made it very enjoyable.

the best way to get to yellow dog is on co rd 510 off of co rd 550. from there you can go down river and there are 4-5 waterfalls writing a couple miles. I've heard it's great for fishing too.
