Beautiful falls at the end of a very short trail. There are tons of other connected trails nearby, but I only did the short waterfall hike. Immediately following I did four other hikes, making for the longest single day hike distance for me. This was a nice early morning warm-up, and I had the trail to myself.

Quick short hike from the trailhead. Road in was long and somewhat challenging with all the 4-wheelers and other motorized recreational vehicles. Trail not well marked but follow the sounds of the fall. When there, it is a spectacular view with moss covered rocks at the falls. The sound of gunshots (assuming target practice), dirt bikes, ATVs detracted from the beauty and serenity.

Drove up instead of hiking in. Driving required suv for some clearance and pot holes on gravel road. Very fun drive if you have decent 4wd.
Went the morning after heavy rain and made it much more intense than everyone else’s photos showed - huge waterfall after the rain. Hike was nothing if you drive in - maybe a mile total to/from.
Hike was 3 stars, but waterfall and fun 4wd drive in 4 star.

Beautiful hike and easy for kids. Had a two month old and five year old with us. They were doing some tree clearing on the right side (heading in) which distracted from the nature/natural feeling. Waterfall was amazing for such a short trek.

Very Short, nice little falls at the end. Would be good for kids. Very easy. Slippery when wet. Trail does cross a few ATV trails.

It was beautiful!! Trail got confusing for a for a bit, but still great. Perfect with kids. The fall was gorgeous. The pools beneath were a kind of gross.
