It took a little exploitation to find the right trail but definitely a view worth looking for. Both top and bottom of the falls are accessible if you are willing to put in the work!!!

Hiked this trail a few weeks back. I didnt see any posted signs. Dropped into gorge by rope. Walked the creek all the way to to lake, the mill stone is about the half way point if you spot it. Fyi trails are unmarked and cell service is spotty.

I could not for the life of me find the entrance to this trail. There were small, unmarked trails, just off the road, but they led nowhere. I could get down to the creek from the road, but there was no trail to follow. I saw people swimming at the base of the waterfall, but couldn’t figure out how to get down there. Boo.

Hard but doable, much of the barbwire has been covered or fallen. Several confusing spots were there seems to be two trails. Part of the trail was demolished for roadwork but still a great trail

a whole part of the trail had been renovated for a new road addition, they must have demolished a whole waterfall to do this construction... aside from this the trail was beautiful! defintiely wear waterproof boots!

Super fun trail. It’s challenging, but doable. We parked on the side of the road. It was beautiful and refreshing.

It was a beautiful and adventure trail. You have to have water shoes if you want to enjoy fully.

Incredible. If you wanna play it safe, stay above the falls and enjoy a nice trail that cuts everywhere. But once you pass the first waterfall, go down in and walk the gorge. Waterproof boots be damned! Great day, take your time and be safe figuring out how to navigate

The waterfall itself is a pretty awesome sight and it's not a long trail to get down to. Taking the trail on the left can be easy or hard depending on the recent weather. There are ropes to help you get down and from there it's pretty straight forward, just be careful because the rocks can be slick. Sometimes I see garbage down by the falls which is sad but overall nice little hike!

GPS took me to location....Private Property signs posted everywhere! I left. I don't trespass. Why is this listed on here? don't be a renegade jerk if it's private property unless you have permission.

Some nice views and great places to stop and listen to nature but the trail is incredibly light and there are no blazes so its easy to wander off trail.

This is one of my favorite local area spots to hike around or just sit and relax at, I would rate this trail hard as the leaves n mud can be slick and need to go slow thru, while watching your footing. I havent been all the way to the bottom and saw where there are ropes you need to use to climb down as it gets too steep, theres trails along both sides and has its neat features.

Great trail! My fiancee and I hiked down the stream the whole way and it was perfect. beautiful sights and very quiet. As it is with any stream, certain parts are pretty slippery and muddy, but most of it was just flat rock on the bottom. The road is out so you need to walk a short walk on the road to get to the stream, and there's a sharp decline right at the start that you'll definitely need to use the rope as an assist.
