Very low traffic and the kids loved it! The pictures do not do justice for these falls!

Easy short trail with a beautiful cascading fall. Cool water to play in. The sound of the fall is soothing. Bring water shoes and clothes you can get wet.

1 mile round trip, decently flat with some roots.
Ideal for children and pets and the reward is worth the effort.
For the best view of the falls, some work is required directly below them.
This trail will not be friendly to those who can not climb small slopes.
