This is a mellow hike with a lot of fun bridges and little spots by the river to enjoy. The waterfall is spectacular and well worth the trip! This trail does not have a significant elevation gain, the majority of it is the very first part of the trail. You head down as soon as you begin the trail, which means that the very last part of the hike is a mild uphill incline. The trail is easy and the bugs were not overwhelming, there are several bridges and good resting spots. The foliage is very overgrown once you split off from the Gunsight Pass trail on the the Florence trail fork, some of it was above my head and I'm 5'7".

Horse Ford, about 1.3 miles in, is absolutely beautiful. That’s a gradual downhill for about 1.3 miles until you get to Gunsight Trail. Gunsight is slightly overgrown but follows St. Mary river and is nice. The Florence falls 0.6 mike (1.2 our and back) Trail is VERY overgrown, so much so that it was tough to see my own feet at times. The falls are beautiful though.

Great trail, amazing views!! Only reason for four stars is that the trail is overgrown and marshy (so...mosquitos!!) and the way back out is frickin STEEP! But definitely do this trail!! More than worth it!

Amazing views along the way! Waterfall is breath taking well worth the hike.The incline at the end is the hardest part.

The first waterfalls you come to, (Deadwood Falls), are absolutely captivating! Also, the Reynolds Creek campground is very nice. Make sure you bring plenty of water, the hike in is easy and downhill, but the hike out is steep!
