Parking on the side of the road near the end trail is the sortest way into the falls. You can also park in the park and hike in from there.

The flame itself is cool to see, the falls themselves were not super impressive, even after a few days of rain. Easy, short little trail. Deceptively easy on the way into the ravine, until you have to climb back out. Follow the trail markers that are white with a little flame on them with numbers.

This was a fun hike for me and my boyfriend but I agree with other reviews saying it should be moderate. There's lots of parts going into the ravine where you have to maneuver over branches. You will get wet but I didn't mind. Still fun. It's a quick but more challenging hike than some reviews make it seem.
