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.

Very beautiful short hike. Beware of slippery rocks, muddy trail beds, and unearthed tree roots along the trail. Some areas of the trail are difficult to navigate due to these issues or downed trees. Keep on the trail and follow the small signs with flames on them. Seeing the flame and relaxing in the canyon at the end is well worth the trek!

Definitely more difficult than preempted. Went after a rain storm and there was a lot of moving rocks and logs to get to the destination. But really beautiful and fun, nonetheless.

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.
