With so many better options in the area I can’t recommend. In the winter I imagine it has some good views or maybe in the spring after a good rain the waterfall would be more impressive. Otherwise it’s a nice walk in the woods. We took the long way rather than the shortcut with the steep climb. If you stay on the trail you hit the creek and then go up the first tributary to the falls. No trail but fairly easy to manage. If you go this way it’s just under 8 miles if you park your car at the trailhead suggested by the map and directions. The only other plus is that you are likely to have the trail all to yourself!
