Nice easy trail for beginners.

Somewhat steep at parts, but levels out quickly. Can get narrow, but still, very doable footing. Made it with no problems with my dog. Falls are gorgeous with plenty of opportunity for photo-ops. Trail head is a little hard to see when you cross the train tracks (we weren't sure which way to go initially) but clearly marked once you find it. Park at the top of the road near the trailhead, or else the walk from your car is worse than the hike itself!

Good, short hike but NOT easy. Beautiful falls at the end. Def not for kids and only for those sure footed. Several near-scramble sections, lots of rocks.

Tip- drive UP the driveway to park at the trailhead. You don’t have to park at the road. :)

A nice and short trail. Very easy to reach the falls. If possible, extend the hike to the top of the falls by crossing the stream and taking the trail on the left of the falls.

It was a nice day for a hike and the falls were beautiful. The trail is a bit slippery and the roots like to grab at you but all in all a beautiful hike. It has some steep grades and while it is classified as easy it was a good challenge.

i wouldn't call this an "easy" hike as it was very steep. more of an intermediate trail. still suitable for any skill level if you take your time and take breaks. rewarding view at the end!

Short easy hike

Although not a long distance, trail is more moderate and would not recommend for young kids, or adults that are not sure footed.

Very easy walk to the waterfall. Stopped here on my way to a more difficult hike and enjoyed my lunch at the bottom of the waterfall. (No picnic tables just a nice spot to relax and sit on a blanket)

A great quick hike! There are some very steep sections requiring you to maneuver over boulders and such, so think twice before bringing pets or children. The falls are awesome!

It's a relatively short hike, but a fair amount of elevation gain over boulder-strewn ground. I'd say moderate difficulty. Totally worth It... The falls are great!

It was a little more difficult than I would have expected being rated as "easy" but it was well worth it. Breathtaking!!
