Very easy trail - beautiful waterfall. Lots of dipping spots to cool off. Dog loved playing in the water. Not much to see after the waterfall - but very relaxing and mostly shaded.

It’s not too hard of a train but I had a 6 month old strapped to my chest so it wasn’t really “easy.” There were a few rock scramble areas. I only made it about half way up and turned around because my dog wasn’t having it anymore. As I got close to my end point the trail was really overgrown in a few spots but it is clearly marked with blazes. It’s a very nice hike, the waterfall was a nice welcome early in the hike!

We only went to the falls and then a little past it but it’s a really nice trail. Some tiny scrambles, walking over a creek, nice shade, and beautiful waterfall. There isn’t a parking lot, just a tiny shoulder that can hold like 3 cars so be aware of that. We took our 4 year old and he loved the hike.

My husband and I went on this trail with our small dog. We had a really nice time. Easy to follow not crowded trail with a nice waterfall and beautiful view at the very top. We are not avid hikers so it was pretty tiring but the challenge felt good.

A nice Easter hike with my two boys- aged 1.5 and almost 4. Waterfall was amazing! Hiking above the waterfall the trail goes along a beautiful river/brook that feeds the waterfall. There were some steep, rocky, and slippery spots where I had to carry the baby and help my 4 year old— I put the baby in a hiking pack for the trip down since he was getting tired. I would definitely visit here again- especially in warmer weather. Seems like there are a few nice spots to cool off in hot weather.
We didn’t do the whole hike- turned around where the trail crosses the water mostly because it started to drizzle. We took almost 2 hours.
