The AllTrails map, with the route currently depicted, will not take you to the falls. We were hopeful it would and just followed what AllTrails said to do, but it doesn't take you to a spot where you can actually see the falls. The route they give you kind of just ends randomly, near nothing interesting. At the endpoint depicted, we even went off trail and tried to cut through the woods to see if we could find a way to the falls, but basically got to the top of the waterfall with no way to see any views of the falls themselves, as there are steep areas surrounding both sides of the waterfall. You can basically just see a creek about to go off a ledge and that's it (and this could only be seen by going off trail, as stated above). We had to backtrack a ways and then turn onto the appropriate trail to get to the falls. If you look on the map, it's the left midway through the trail towards Tamanawas Falls Trail. Besides the inaccurate route AllTrails gives you, this trail was nice in that the trailhead is right off the main road and had plenty of parking even at 10 am on a Saturday ($5 recreation pass charge). I imagine the main trail to get to Tamawanas is much more crowded. If you take the correct turn towards the falls and ignore what this route depicts, this trail would be a great choice!
