Great trail with 3 water falls. First is about 1 mile in, and the second and third are 2.5 miles. When you see the second, walk up the hill and you will immediately see the third. Worth the extra steps. Trail is narrow with many rocks and down trees. Need to cross over a few streams. Relatively flat with approx 500 ft elevation. Some parts do get steep but overall a moderate hike. Saw both kids and older adults on the trail.

we loved this trail! It was super shady, a good bit rocky and twisted with roots but there are lots of super flat easy parts. A few rocky areas may be difficult for little ones or smaller dogs. it was unfortunately very buggy, Id suggest a very good bug spray. Theres a nice calm wading pool at the first falls. A slightly deeper one at the second falls, and the deepest at the third falls. Be wary though, thr seasonal road you take to get there has a washed out side that will make it one way for a second or two. It was thankfully coned off! The road was well groomed, the trailhead noticeable, and the trail markers were plentiful! The trail is nicely kept up too.

Awesome trail for people of all ages! Views of all the waterfalls were beautiful & stunning! Overall was 5.75 miles long there & back, and took us around 3 hours to complete in total. Definitely bring bug spray because there are a ton of bugs, especially at the falls. Easy to follow trail markers as well.

Loved this hike to the falls! Don’t stop at the first one they got better as you keep going along the trail in my opinion. Even stopped to take a quick swim at the third falls before turning around to head back to the car. The bugs were swarming if you stopped for too long so I’d recommend bug spray this time of year.

It was very buggy. We sprayed the kids before we started and left the spray in the car bad idea, should have brought with us to reapply . Other wise it was beautiful

The app should post the trail is 4.1 miles one way, its 7.5 out & back. Trail not too difficult but the bugs were horrible. Quite a few blowdowns but seeing all 3 falls is totally worth it.

We just went to the first water fall. I like that I can go here with older in shape family members. Although it was a bit muddy and slippery this time of year. Beautiful and my puppies went for there first hike and loved it.

Great trail, very quiet (we didn’t meet anyone until almost back to the trail head) despite going on a Saturday morning. Trail to the first Falls was great, from there to 2nd and 3rd was more challenging, with both muddy spots and icy spots, several trees down over the trail, but it added to the adventure. The falls were running fast. Beautiful!

Great trail. You are now currently able to drive in to the trail head (be cautious when driving, it is soft in some places and there are large rivets from the frost). Trail itself was muddy in spots (to be expected in spring) & a little rough at times. The falls are currently running very heavy right now, beautiful sight!

Great hike!! Rough terrain but beautiful landscape and falls.

Did the full hike to the 2nd and 3rd falls on 3/27. Normally this trail would be awesome and no complaints, but the ice made the leg going from the 1st to 2nd and 3rd very slow and somewhat difficult. 1st leg was easy though. Wouldn't recommend to anyone who doesn't have good balance and agility until the ice melts. Asking for an injury with no way out if you aren't careful on the ice.

I ended up doing a loop that I discovered. Very icy right now but also muddy in some spots as well.

Went to the 1st Falls today. Parked at end of the plowed road and walked the mile to the trailhead on micro spikes. The trail to the falls was well marked and well packed down. The falls were beautiful on a warm late winter morning.

Great trail. Only problem is the trail markers. I think there should be more around where the trail curves. With old parts of the trail still around I could see a beginner getting turned around if they're not careful.
