Directions from Powers: Go south on County Road #219 to Forest Service Road #33 to MP 57.
This hike is not 1 mile. I would guess it's closer to a tenth of a mile from the trail head to the falls. Beautiful area. I do not recommend driving the back logging roads like we dogs to get there though.
This is a very short trail, probably less than .25 miles. It leads to a view of the waterfall, a bench, and a picnic table.
