Beautiful place! The trial is a little more difficult to navigate after the first falls, which I agree with previous reviews is by far the most impressive, but it's definitely still worth the effort!

Great trail, lovely falls. First falls are the nicest, but still worth going further to see the second and third ones. Trail markers become sparse halfway to second falls...but path fairly clear.

Love this hike, we do it every year. The new section is still a little rough, but we made it to the 2nd and 3rd falls this year, and it was definately with it.

We had a group of 15 people including 6 kids under age 8. The babies were carried easily on our backs and we had a couple extra carriers for the 4 year olds when their legs got tired. We only went to the first falls but it was a nice hike. We spent some time wading in the cool water before hiking back out. Looking forward to going back to complete the entire hike.

Nice trail. We went only to the first fall, it had rained hard last night so the falls were full.

Nice hike. The first falls is lovely. The trail becomes a bit more challenging heading towards the 2nd and 3rd falls. A bit more technical with rocks and slippery tree limbs, but nothing that isn't easily tackled.

The trail markers got further apart towards the end and I ended up giving up before finding the 2nd or 3rd falls.

Love this spot. Nice payoff at the falls only 1 mile in. Great beginner hike. For those who have done it before, or plan to return, the trailhead has moved and no longer ties into the Wilcox lake trail. The new trailhead is clearly marked and is a few hundred yards before the old trailhead at the dead end. Enjoy!

Nice short hike. Cool little falls one mile in. Two other falls to see if you keep walking. Trail was a little muddy today but not bad.

beautiful, peaceful, and serene. the solitude of doing this hike solo gives you a chance to collect your thoughts and reflect.

Good trail, but easy is debatable. This trail requires the ability to clime over logs, scale narrow rock sections and maintain good footing. Overall worth the drive, the falls were great yhos time of year.
