The waterfall is pretty but the hike to get there seemed a little more difficult than necessary, and kind of set up as a tourist attraction. However, it's a great spot to picnic and listen to the peaceful running water as you walk along the creek.

Checked this short hike off our list today - it was an absolute blast. There was a whole group of us, including 4 kids, five & under. Young & old easily traveled this well taken care of trail, we even pushed a stroller the entire way there & back! Gorgeous views the whole way!

This is a very pretty hike that we did with two young kids (ages 4.5 and 2.5) and two adults in their mid 70s. I wouldn't rate this trail easy for kids or seniors as there are lots of inclines and declines. This hike is not stroller or wheelchair friendly. It took us a long time to go 1.6 miles. We ended up carrying the 2 year old about 1/3 of the time. The 4 year old had no problem. The kids enjoyed throwing rocks into the river not far from the start of the trail under the first bridge crossing. The landscape and falls were beautiful and interesting. Great hike that we'd do again but harder than anticipated.
