This was a very easy trail. Fun for kids at the bottom with the waterfall.

The trail was easy to follow the only problem we had was there had been very much rain in a while and the falls were all but dried up. Looking forward to going back under better conditions.

nice waterfall, probably better if more rain recently. I would say the main trail is easy, but if you want to go down to the creek and waterfall, those portions are NOT easy. We had young kids and older grandparents who had a lot of difficulty with the steep grade and slippery terrain.

Short little hike with lots of little off shoots. Slightly muddy and gentle descent down to the falls.

The alltrails map shows the distance to the falls. My recording shows pretty much the full trail past the falls if you’re interested in seeing some nice and peaceful creek areas. There’s also a lot of small side trails for views.

The climb down to the falls is short but steep and slippery. Best to bring a change of clothes for the ride home. Kids had a great time.

The falls are gorgeous, but, it is insanely muddy right now. You can’t even get right up to the fall because the steep trails down are too slick. I’d wait until it dries up if you want an up close look at the water.

Though the falls is nice, would recommend waiting until the trail is dry to see it. It could actually be kinda dangerous for small kids, elderly and extremely overweight people as the mud is very slippery. If you want to add a lil more to this short hike, take the trail around the pond.

Easy walk back to falls. There is a pond off to the right that has its own trail. Getting down to lower falls and getting back up could be challenging as it is steep. Worth the effort. Small children can wade so bring water shoes.
