Decent Trail definitely earned its title of moderate. Do not underestimate this Trail though. waterfall was a lot of fun to relax and eat lunch by, lots of elevation change and a nice little reward at the end of each trailhead

Worth the hike, just be careful of rocks under leaves when leaves are on the trail. Other than that worth it! Wear good hiking shoes.

Sister in Law and I went on this trail with our infants. It isn’t the easiest trail, of course, but we had a lot of fun. The water was running this time and we turned around at the first creek because we were on a time constraint. Boo. But the creek was beautiful.

Nice trail through the woods, glades, touches on a creek. still a just a basic trail. Hercules wilderness has many miles to hike, combine this one with another and it will not disappoint.

First to Review

I’m marking this a three because of the inaccuracy of the trail description and mileage listed. If you want to hike to the falls and back you need to be prepared to hike closer to 8 miles. You have to cross the creek numerous times if you want to stay on the blazed trail, otherwise there are some side trails along the creek if you look carefully. Loose rock on the trail and slick creek crossings make trekking poles a good idea. Some uphill on the way back but not overly strenuous. Falls are pretty and good area for dispersed camping.
