Quick hike to a large waterfall, great place to take a family. There is also a small cave on the other side of the water at the falls!

Easy walk up to a pretty waterfall. We went off to the left to look for the mine. That made it even better for us.

Loved this! Very doable even for people who are out of shape aka me

Wide path for pups and others to pass

The falls were really cool and peaceful

It was a cold day so for us this distance was perfect!

A very pretty little trail with a gorgeous waterfall. Good for kids and those who want to get out in nature but aren't looking to hike very far.

Great family hike my four year old and my ten year old both enjoyed it. Easy to get to. Only negative was some litter on the trail due to the easy access.

Pretty falls and great place to play in water. Would consider this to be a walking trail rather than a hike. Non strenuous to say the least.

Short, easy walk on a wide trail. Follows a small river up to a pretty water fall. My kids always look forward to places to swim. Most of the river is very shallow, just mud in some places. But, you can walk right up to the water fall. The water beneath is shallow and perfect for small kids and pets to wade in. There is also places for camping. This a great hike for kids or campers, not long enough for a full day.

pretty waterfall, lots of work going on with the trail currently. makes for a fairly ugly hike in with all of the cut and fallen trees and brush.

Very short trail. Not much of a hike, more of a nice site. There is a higher back trail to hike up the side of the waterfall though. Also, looking to the left of the waterfall, there is an old Mica mine to explore.

Pretty but watch out for lots of snakes in the rocks. Lots of places off the trail to see the river.
