This is a great hike! I followed the directions on waterfallshiker and had little trouble finding the way. It's largely pretty easy, except for the last half mile or so. The trail is *quite* narrow and tricky right before the waterfall. We had a member of the party who has some balance issues and they took what could have been a pretty nasty fall without someone near to catch them, so be advised of that. The waterfall is so beautiful and the swimming is excellent, if you're inclined to.

This trail name doesnt exist. I followed the directions that led me to the gamelands on the green river. they have a map a few yards after the trailhead that is slightly difficult to see due to it being someone's driveway. Park when you cross the bridge, "trailhead" is directly across.

Trail is not marked and overgrown once you cross the river. Lots of blow down. Water was high, so you cannot cross with dry feet unless you scramble across a downed tree before the crossing. River is beautiful. Not a soul out there today. Packed some found trash out.

Beautiful area, however, had to cut it short. It should be written on here that this is a hunting area in the fall/early winter. Encountered a very grumpy toothless old man with a shotgun who was displeased with my presence. Definitely bring bright orange clothing. Also no sign here that says anything about Bradley falls trailhead.
