Great trail! Beautiful falls and great place to lounge on rocks and play in the water. Moderate intensity, lots of rocks and roots along the trail. Will hike again soon for fishing with the fam.

The trail down to the river is pretty steep, and definitely more of a difficult rating compared to other trails on AllTrails.
