Muddy but we were able to get right up to the falls with a trail and scramble over the rocks.

Such a nice winter walk but it does feel super short. Pretty crowded but everyone was considerate.

Exactly what I anticipated. Easy walking trail, dog friendly, beautiful waterfalls. Good number of people on the trail (fortunately everyone had masks and was respectful of distancing). Careful if you’re heading down to the base of the falls as it is quite slippery with melting ice/mud but definitely worth it.

Pretty walk with some elevation change. Beautiful falls and stream. It’s a shame to be so close to residential development at the front portion. But you can feel far away when you get to the falls.

super crowded, but with reason. Two spectacular waterfalls - great photo op from top, but fun scramble over mossy boulders at base. very impressed by everyone wearing their masks - you rock my fellow hikers!

Loved this little trail. If you have the proper footwear, get on some rocks and check out the waterfall from the ground. Way better than the upper ledge.

It’s very easy to lose the trail! We found it tough to follow and originally ended up at another mini falls. Note that this hike is very easy and can be done by most anyone who can walk up a hill.

Make sure you hit both the upper trail to see the waterfall in the lower trail too be at its base. Very crowded on the weekends.

A very nice easy well marked trail with minor steep climbs. The high falls are calming and breathtaking and I urge everyone to respect nature and stay on designated trails to preserve the area. I made my own mistakes so just FYI
