Good location- quiet, but some of the trails are unkempt featuring dense foliage and a high chance of ticks, thorns or poison ivy6. Waterfalls are really nice.

This was a great easy hike. The water falls are very cool and provide a nice deep swimming pool. My dog loved it too Bring bug spray and water shoes.
