Favorite hike in CVNP! Once you get to the mud catching sign, cross the stream, and there will be a faint path to the left of the mud catching waterfall. The trail leads to the stream bed which you follow all the way back to the falls.

Relatively easy even for a beginner once I was able to locate it. Most challenging part is getting in and out of the unmarked trailhead. Prepare to get wet!

trail was difficult at times. Crossing over the stream many times was awesome. The falls were absolutely beautiful!! could stand right underneath them.

this was absolutely worth the hike upstream! the falls were absolutely breathtaking. however be careful not to get too close as we watched part of the wall break off and fall two different times!

Awesome hike! Was a 70 degree day in February with lots of water supplying the waterfall and creek. Only downside was that the river at the mud catcher was too deep to cross. Had to backtrack to the bridge and cross there and follow the mountain goat path to the mud catcher dam. Not too tough though and well worth it. Note. this trail is not on the park map that I could see.

Prepare to get your feet wet if you want to see the falls after a previous rain fall or snow melting. Definitely one the of coolest spots in the CVNP though.

Agree with previous reviews about difficulty to find and difficulty to hike had there actually been much of a stream flowing, but certainly worth the trip. Park where this app takes you via maps, follow the trail, crossing over a small bridge. Head towards the overpass. Once you've gone under the overpass, you'll continue to walk a ways until seeing the Mudcatcher sign on your right. You'll cross the stream and see a path on the left of the rock formation. I hiked straight up the stream, as in early September there wasn't much to tread through. Can't speak to how it'd be with it.

A short but rewarding hike, as the falls were still beautiful despite the decreased water flow. I braved a hike up the right side of the bank (admittedly nearly a 90 degree angle) to see the top of the falls. Difficult, and I had to slide almost the entire way down to keep from falling to my death, but it was breathtaking to see the falls from the top, albeit terrifying.

Overall, definitely a hike to consider if you're up for a bit of off-roading. Photos truly don't do it justice; it is a hidden beauty.
