Great Waterfall, Lots of people swimming there, we made the mistake of going down the really steep trail to the right, got lost for a bit but made it eventually to the trail after climbing all the way back up.

The drive up to it is the hardest part! Easy going trail with beautiful views. I've personally taken a dozen people on this trail as an intro. I really wish people would recycle, but it is a good spot to bring the kids, or have an iPa with the bros. Please be respectable and haul your trash out!

We loved this spot! Make sure you enter at the orange sign to the left of parking. We started to the right with 4 small children and it was really scary! Turned around pretty quick and found the correct trail head but not without a few tears from the younger ones. The real trail was much better but my husband still ended up carrying our 3 year old because of the drop off on one side of the trail, which is pretty narrow. My brother’s kids (6-9yrs old) were able to make it fairly easily. Totally worth it once you get to the waterfall. Bring swimming stuff for sure! We ended up going in in our clothes because we were under prepared but couldn’t resist. My brother was able to climb up behind the waterfall and get some amazing pics (totally jealous, as I’m super pregnant and couldn’t join ;) )

Loved it. Bit rocky in places. The only draw back is that Saw some young adults drinking there

Great quick “hike” to the waterfall. When you park, go to the left side, that’s the entrance! If you go to the right, you will just run into two very steep trails that I don’t think even leads to the waterfall. Very slick, but saw a bunch of children do the hike easily.

It’s an okay short hike as long as bees don’t make nests by your ankles. Can swim at base of waterfall it is cold

Pretty easy hike, small steep area kids had to be careful on. Completely worth the view. Great parking. Lots of broken glass on rocks.

Short hike with an awesome waterfall. A bit slippery but manageable. You can cross the stream by hopping on the tree stumps someone placed there but be careful they are a little wobbly

absolutely stunning waterfall and nature all around. went when it was on and off raining-with that said highly suggest shoes with traction. not stroller friendly, and make sure kids can climb steep areas. but overall easy/moderate depends on person.

nice, very short hike to a beautiful waterfall with a lovely river to swim in on hot days. the hike is a little steep and rocky in some areas, but very easy to do. this spot can definitely get crowded quickly and we saw some broken glass along the trail. will be back to explore more and for a swim one of these summer days!

Easy but steep/unstable in some parts. I was wearing a baby and got a little nervous to fall a couple times. But the falls are pretty and it’s a good little hike. My 7 year old was able to walk it herself, any younger could be tricky

Short hike to a beautiful waterfall. We walked around the back of the falls and if you go early it may be nicely secluded.

This was a nice little out and back to a beautiful waterfall! We brought our dog and our two little ones who found some spots a little scary as there was some mud and rocks, but it was pretty easy for me and my wife. Make sure you bring an extra pair of socks!

Great little hike. If it’s hot bring a swim suit and go for a dip!

This was such a fun hike and the waterfall at the end was gorgeous! Loved it! I was bummed at the amount of trash left there from others.

Nice very short walk to waterfalls...unfortunately Bc it’s such easy access there is more trash than I was hoping to see there...it had rained earlier so rocks and parts of trail were a little slick but not too bad...worth the quick jaunt down there to see the falls

This is a hidden gem. Short hike probably 7-10 mins from parking lot. Only one steep area down to the creek bed to see the waterfall. I made a 7 minute video on my blog. https://www.craftysnaphappymama.com/beaver-creek-falls/

Great trail with an amazing waterfall at the end. I went with three young children and a dog - some parts of the trail were tricky to navigate and scary, but it was so worth it.
