Beautiful hike but be alert because there is a large rattlesnake population here.

Really fun trail! Uphill and rocky when hiking to the falls, but easy and doable for about an hour or so. The falls are beautiful and refreshing!

Overall easy. First half is muddy, some bugs and uphill. Prob wouldn’t do again unless I want to go somewhere I know. Def not good on a muggy day. Got there 10am and plenty of parking

So much fun! The chipmunks were everywhere and active, we saw a rattle snake and enjoyed the waterfall. We wish we knew you can swim in the waterfall and would recommend bringing bathing suits and water shoes.

Nice trail, plenty of parking if you arrive early. Nice easy grade into the falls. Worth the trip!

Geat trail leading to a beautiful set of waterfalls. There are two parking lots. the trail is not marked that well but at the entrance is a yellow marker. Its also important to note that the trail is very muddy and rocky in several spots.

Enjoyable walk when you have an hour or so to kill. Wet and a little muddy in spots, but otherwise dry. Crowded, and due to narrow parts of the trail bring a mask.

Very muddy, wear boots and it’s fine, but very muddy. Waterfalls were nice. Not very crowded.
