Great trail for small kids. Very short and beautiful waterfall at the end! Not a ton of parking by the trail head so be careful parking along Rt. 28

WalkingGreat!

Nice little trail, easy enough for a 2yr old toddler to walk it in and out, falls were on the dryer side but still had a small amount of water going over the rocks. It’s a short walk from the golden beach camp sites 185-189 entrance.

Great for a short hike. Falls are very cool. Don’t worry about the gate at the beginning, you can walk around.

Fun little trail. There’s a fork in the road about a quarter into the hike. I’m not familiar with this place at all, so I went to the right. I hiked about 2 miles before I realized it wasn’t taking me anywhere and the trail abruptly just ended. I hiked back to the original fork in the road and then took the left trail, and about 2 minutes in, there is the waterfall!! It was a fun adventure and the waterfall was beautiful :)

This trail was a lot of fun! Great sights from such a short hike! Be careful about the fork in the road, pick the one that is less covered, as it brings you to the waterfall. Would do again!

Very easy trail. The falls were a little dry at the beginning of July.

Lots of fun and really easy. A short trip from Inlet and worth the drive. You can climb up too, just be really careful! Easy trail.

This is actually my second time doing death falls. We hadn’t realized we needed a picture for certain challenges. Anyway - this experience was much better because last time we went, there was barely any water! Nice little trail. Muddy with bugs, but that’s to be expected.

Short hike to the falls. Pretty scenery. Went at beginning of black fly season with kids so not ideal time to visit.

Was a very easy walk into the falls. Only muddy in one spot. The falls were totally worth getting through the muddy area.
