Did this hike while visiting for my sons graduation. Beautiful trail. But go early. The heat kicks up in the afternoon and a lot of foot traffic going back up to the summit later in the morning.

The waterfall was worth the incline trek! ☺️

The waterfall and stream are as beautiful and full as ever! When crossing the stream the first time, take the smaller/highest trail from the parking lot and look for a set of steps on the right a ways back. There is a log, and another set of steps. Don't get turned away by following the big trail from the parking lot and seeing that the log that used to be there is washed away! You can also take a left on the big trail and follow it down until you see a concrete dam and cross there.

This is a great trail! I didn't even know this trail existed until I looked up trails on the internet and the fact that it has a waterfall at the end got me hooked. It is definitely worth it.

It was quite enjoyable. a little tight at some parts but there were a couple places to pause and enjoy along the way.

There's a couple of water ways to cross to get to the finale!
