Take the left side when you see the fork in the trail (it looks obviously more used). Saw no one the entire time. Very pretty, quick walk up to the falls through dappled light and fern groves. Nice pool at the base of falls for hot days. A creepy cave that I didn't go down thanks to lack of flashlight, but seemed to be barricaded at the end. Foundational bits of concrete are sticking out in the trail right before the falls, so arthritic knees and hips may not appreciate the little scramble up. Road is unpaved in two separate parts (before you get to Elkhorn and again once inside Opal Creek Scenic Area), but our Kia Soul was able to make it over the minimal potholes with ease.
