You will need a high-clearance, or better yet a 4WD vehicle to access this trailhead, by the way. :) As you turn onto the Horse Canyon turnoff, you'll have to cross the creek twice until you reach the right turn to get to Falls Canyon. On this road, you'll cross the creek 1-2 more times (depending on where you want to stop and park). It's easiest to park after the second creek crossing as the path is very overgrown after that. The road eventually turns into a pretty clear trail and about 0.5 mile in you'll get to the waterfall, which is quite impressive in the spring. You can see the waterfall on the trail, and there is a trail that leads to it as well. If you wish, you can backtrack to this spot and continue on left to the end of the trail, about 2 miles in.

a pretty easy trail to a rare sight in Nevada-a waterfall! some parts of the trail after the falls were a little sketchy and maintained. you also have to cross the creek several times to continue on the trail so you will get your hiking shoes wet. there was dense vegetation in some parts as well. other than that, it was beautiful and the waterfall was cool!

More difficult than moderate. The scenery was remarkable the entire length of the trail. Falls were beautiful.
