Really lovely trail for all kinds of hikers, and on a beautiful June Saturday it was fairly crowded. The falls are worth it - be sure to cross the bridge and take a few more steps because there is a second waterfall just to the right of the first, but hidden!

Worth the trek to the end! Sign reads 1 mile to Falls, but it is more like 2.

Hiked it today. The Forest Service was on the trail and cleaned up the 2 downed trees we ducked under on the way in. The creek and falls were beautiful with very high water volumes, but any minor crossings were safe and easy.

Nice easy walk for the family and pets. The falls look great and is a good place to enjoy the surroundings before you turn back.

Great day hike for all skill levels even kids and dogs. I would say this is an easy to moderate hike depending on your fitness level. This is a good hike to do during the hottest summer days since most of the trail is shaded and cool. Love that you see the creek flow several times before actually getting to the falls.

This is a nice hike to do in the summer. It's nice and shady most of the way up. We went late June and there were lots of wildflowers!

Nice hike and kid friendly. My kids and i do this hike several times a year. Incline is little and varied. We have seen lots of wild life including deer and a moose. The falls is beautiful and is a nice refreshing break before heading back down. Generally snow free my mid April. Parking is generally not an issue.
