More of a walk than I hike, it’s short & quick. The January waterfall was a welcomed sight. Narrow, muddy, rocky & steep, but short. Most able bodies wouldn’t have a problem getting in but not easy for elderly, under 8 (or so), and parents carrying the tiny. Relatively unknown and beautiful waterfall though!

Would definitely agree this hike is moderate. Lots of rocks and some steep points - was such a nice little hike with an amazing finish at the falls! Would love to return in the summer when swimming would be better!

Some glass on trail. Little garbage. Very peaceful. Can be a little steep but great and short beginner trail. The swimming is nice but only on he hottest of summer days.

The trail wasn’t bad, but there were some parts that were steep and rocky. Also, a section of the trail there was a bunch of broken glass. The falls was really pretty and cool.

This is a great short hike through the woods to a very nice waterfall. Parts of the trail are steep with loose rocks. These sections are short and doable just take you time. Great lunch hike.

I made a pit stop here since it was rated as easy. I was only dressed/prepared for “easy”. This path is steep and uneven. This hike needs to be changed to moderate or even hard. I did not get to see the waterfall. My rating is based off of misinformation.

A peaceful short trail with a gorgeous waterfall. Only negative was the littering and broken glass on the trail. Besides that very pretty to see and very easy of a hike.

A nice, short trail that is beautiful! The waterfall was very pretty and you can hike behind it too for a nice cool mist! Beware of the bees/wasps on the trail (half way down the trail), they are aggressive. I got stung today just walking past an area where you couldn’t see them! I would recommend wearing pants for this reason! Also watch out for broken glass! But definitely a hidden gem waterfall hike’

The trail is very short but steep. The Falls is breathtaking and so worth it. It was a little tough finding the trail that leads to the falls, but after a little bit we found it. The trail is pretty close to the chain link fence.

Parked at the trailhead. Hike was steep in areas but not too bad, the garbage was sad to see. There's a crossing of rocks in the water so you can take a path to the top of the falls. Crossed the falls at the top and followed the trail out to a pull off where we looped and walked the road back to the trailhead.

Over crowded at the pool. And there were some very inebriated folks trying to swim. So much so that they were a risk to themselves. Everyone else was fine. The trail goes down further. We didn’t go. But it is nicely covered in trees. A nice cool hike in the heat.

(Not family friendly) The fall is really pretty but the trail is not. The trail needs grooming and there is a lot of broken glass as well trash. I wouldn’t recommend to anybody but if your are chasing waterfalls here is one.

Stunning, and a great place to hang out in the sun! Look for the trailhead sign at the left of the parking lot.

Be really careful if cliff jumping, people have died and gotten paralyzed there. I decided to not jump after scouting down below and finding some shallow shelf’s. There’s also a car in there somewhere. Warm water when I was there though, so scout it out yourself!

love this place

I loved that it’s a good enough trek for my 6 & 4 year old to do and enjoy. Good little adventurous trek to explore the front & back of the falls. Our 2 dogs loved the hike too. Its a great hike if you’re just looking for a 2 hour adventure (30 min in. 1 hr hanging out by the falls/exploring around there. 30 min out.)

I will definitely spend some time, next time, picking up the glass on the trail.

Broken glass on dog friendly trail only reason for a 3 today June 1, otherwise 4+. Broken glass just past recently chainsaws tree. Beautiful falls! Although short hike, need to be sure footed wearing good hiking shoes for steepness and condition of trail.

This is a great trail for kiddos learning to hike. Small incline and a great, quick reward at the end.

Only downfall is a lot of litter the last two visits. Haul in and haul out all your trash and if you're feeling good, bring a trash bag to help clean up.
