Good trail down to a waterfall. Very manageable - easier side of moderate. Dogs allowed which is refreshing considering others around the area don’t allow dogs. Watch out for dirt bikers. No issues parking on the road.

Way too buggy and muddy - had to turn around

Great trail! Well worth the trip to the bridge/falls. 4 stars for poor parking (lot, no lot?). I just parked on the trail head side of 101. Follow the white markings and when you get to the first two arrows make sure you go "Right-right, not straight-right." Wear hiking boots as it is very muddy and wet in some spots. Most of the trail is fine but where there is mud there's a lot. I would rate this as Easy+ or Moderate-Lite. I think of an easy trail as paved, graveled, stone or flat rail trails, like a high school track with a few bumps, something my grandmother could strap on her newbalances to take a stroll. This one has a just couple slight inclines, and ups and down, and some of the terrain is rocky/muddy. Great trail and great reward at the dam!

Easy trail. Like others have said, park across the road. It is a little muddy in some spots so wear good hiking shoes :)

Easy walk in the woods. Quiet day. Note that it is hard to find parking. Parking is located on the opposite side of the road from the beginning of the trail. The trail is well marked.

Perfect day. Great trail easy to follow !

This is a really nice trail with 2 great destinations at the end: a beautiful view of the reservoir with a small wade-in area for dogs + a nice spot to appreciate the falls and gorge with a wooden walkway crossing the stream. I rate it 4 stars only because the parking options off of route 101 aren’t great. Will definitely do again!

Loved this so much. Have to park along road—but car is safe. Amazing hidden lake and waterfalls. Just gorgeous.

A sunny breezy day yielded little bugs. I am grateful for the review that said to look for the markers on the road for the trailhead. Not a whole lot of parking, only one couple coming out as we were going in. Nice and quiet. I did think I would see more of the gorge though.

We had a great time casually hiking through for just under 2 hours. Lovely wide trails (slightly grassy patches, but long pants or a good tick check is fine), great little view of the dam and waterfalls, and nice pine-bedded areas. Found lots of toads and wood frogs! This trail is readily accessable for any level of hiker/walker (at least up until the dam) and our all-natural bug spray helped with the few flies and mosquitoes you will always run into. The trailhead is NOT well-marked. Look for two white-topped stakes and white blazes along the trail itself. We parked our (small sedan) right on the road-side and felt safe with it.

Great hike despite the bugs and muddy bits, which made certain spots a bit of an obstacle course. The view, however, was worth it.

Great hike! Dam was lovely to see...sounds of water and nature in abundance. Dogs enjoyed it just as much. Unexpected views!

Great hike with a nice spot for lunch on the back side of the lake. We sat there and watch a bald eagle circling overhead just drifting off to the west.

We parked right off the side of 101. Awesome trail. We saw a lot of cool fungi and trees. We were able to see woodpeckers, which was a huge bonus! Awesome spot for photography. The dam was so fascinating to see. Highly recommend this trail. It is a little muddy but it's a fairly easy walk.

I live locally and like to take advantage of small gems like this trail and its objectives. treasure what you have locally and share with others. a small group of friends can be out and back within two hours with a few megapixels of memories.

Challenging trail run for the distance. Feels like you’re running uphill the whole time. But great midway pond with beautiful dam and waterfall. Very muddy trail with lots of bugs
