I used to love this place a few years back. If you are looking to hike your going to be surrounded by a 100 children. We drove over an hour and just turned around and go home. Was no place to park way to many people. Waist of time!!

Great adventure! Just be prepared. There is no real trail at all. You either walk straight through the river water, or on a rocky muddy edge/ledge. You WILL get your feet wet. It is totallu worth it! Parking is super tight. Carpool if possible. No street parking in the neighborhood.

Awesome hike, came out here a week ago. Definitely worth it to keep going. Kept walking on both sides of the trails. The rope to climb to the top of the fall at the end was easy and fun. definitely will be revisiting!

Make sure you hit all three of the falls. Third fall is a bit challenging to get up and over but worth it. Beautiful glen and creek walk.

Easy riverside trail for some sweet waterfall views. You’ll definitely get your feet a little wet but it’s refreshing. We didn’t have time to head up the rope climb to the last falls but it looked like fun!

Muddy in some areas, and definitely needed taller waterproof boots for this one! Kids loved it and we thought there were only two falls, so we didn’t climb it with the little ones! Will go back and try to see that third waterfall!

The waterfalls are awesome this time of year... But also means that the stream is higher than normal and you’re absolutely going to get wet. It’s also muddy and slippery. You have to climb on the narrow edges of the creekbed and over some fallen trees. Wear waterproof footwear! There are 3 big falls, if you climb up the ropes after the 2nd you can get to the third. We climbed all the ropes to the tops of both the first 2 falls and they were sturdy, definitely a challenge though. Crowded in the afternoon, I recommend going early!

Wear waterproof boots, you will be getting wet. A beautiful and challenging home, though the pup didn't seem to care for all the rushing water and narrow paths. Had to carry him over a few spots, but hes a corgi with stumpy legs. We'll be back!

My son and I just did this (it's midway through February). Lots of fun, and he loved it. The large falls at the end is really remarkable to look at in the winter, with all of it frozen over. After the picnic bench, the trail really ends, and it can get pretty sketchy, especially in winter. And at the big waterfall, there is a rope to help you get to the top, but be careful. That can be sketchy too. But in the end, it was all worth it. Great trail.

LOVE this hike and have done it several times. Wonderful in Spring when creek is running quickly with winter runoff. Cool, clear water and three waterfalls if you hike all the way to the top. Water significantly diminishes as summer goes on, drying up in the heat. Cool swimming spots at bottom of second and third falls. Some rope-assisted scrambling required between second and third falls. First and second falls greats for kiddos and dogs... would only recommend third falls for experienced hikers comfortable on a slippery slope and sure footed.

The trail is an easy hike but ends prior to the falls. A slightly more challenging hike awaits as you follow the edge of the creek to the bottom of the falls.

It’s has to one of the funnest trails I have taken lately. While it is easy during the summer and later spring, it was quite a challenge the second weekend in October. When I see easy, I expected a footpath or recognizable trail. There isn’t one here after the start. It is basically a walk up the creek. With cold water, wet leaves, mud, and moss growing on the rocks and logs it was an exciting and challenging hike! Highly recommend it. The first waterfall is great and the second is nice. But the real fun was trying to pick nice and safe places to cross the creek. Wet rocks covered by wet leaves are very slippery!! Be careful.

Nice trail, east for kids and adults alike. Bring water shoes-or prepare to have wet feet! Two beautiful falls, one about half way to the second and both are beautiful!
