Pretty simple trail. Went with my wife and two dogs and it was a breeze. There was a lady there with two kids hiking it around 3-4 years old and they all made it no problem.

the loop from the parking lot usually takes you counter clockwise I recommend going clockwise. This will move the longer stint of the hike first and the reward of the falls will be that much sweeter.

Beautiful trail that is fairly evenly graded throughout the trail. Beautiful waterfall. Trail seems to be capable of washing out as there are some areas that have a small stream running through.

This is a very nice waterfall that is worth the short hike down to it. I would try to go a day or two after it has rained so that the water is flowing well.
