IMPORTANT: to find the trail you must use apple maps. At the time of writing this, if you use google maps, it takes you to the complete wrong place.
The trail head starts at a dead end right next to a campsite that you can drive up to and is clearly labeled with a sign.
Don’t make the same mistake we did in finding it.

Now that that’s out of the way, why three stars?
The scenery is awesome. There are some cool land marks and the falls are definitely worth a recommendation. The trail is not too hard but also not a breeze either.
The problem with this trail:
It is not maintained well, and is NOT clearly marked.
There is trash all over the campsites and it really detracts from the beauty.
Add to this that the trail is extremely confusing at about the half way mark, and you end up with a subpar experience. My friend and I had to turn back simply because we couldn’t figure out how to finish the trail. There were around 6 different offshoots and each had offshoots of its own.
The result is absolute confusion.

Do this trail, but beware of trash and confusing trail forks. Do your research well and understand how to traverse it properly. BRING A MAP.
