Fun hike since it's off the beaten path. Take Mary Jane Falls till it starts vexing to the right and go off to the Left. We kinda made our own trail up there, Lots of rock scrambling.

Loved it will need to be mobile it involves a lot of walking over rocks and boulders and fallen trees make sure you were appropriate shoes since some areas are slippery even when dry weather is present. Also there is an alternate path on the left side of the rope ladder kinda steep incline keep left and you'll come around to the falls area also to let you know your going to enter this trail just you would to Mary Jane falls but keep left you'll notice the trail but it diffidently is off the well traveled path good luck all and have fun be safe

This hike is the perfect hike if you're seeking solitude, even on a weekend. You scramble right through the wash and it requires some careful navigating, but the wash is easy to follow. You eventually reach a boulder with a rope ladder to climb up, as it becomes impassible. You can opt to climb out of the wash on either side but it is loose gravel and very steep. Just after this point the falls will come into view. I would recommend doing this with a friend just because of the terrain involved toward the end. Would go back for sure!

Somewhat off path trail, climbing over boulders and fallen trees, the falls at the end is refreshing and worth the hike. You definitely need hiking shoes with good traction for this trail, as it may be slippery.
