We went for a walk in the woods and ended up in a winter wonderland. Seeing the falls surrounded by snow is something to behold!

One of the most beautiful waterfalls I've ever seen. So worth the hike. The mist off the falls on a hot day. It just don't get any better than that.

This trail was amazing and fairly easy to hike! Although the drive out is fairly smooth until the end, you will likely want to take a car that is capable of handling rough rocky roads. The trail itself is moderately wide and hard packed dirt, even crossing through bits of the stream from time to time. The hike to the falls consists of primarily flat ground, however does hit some considerable uphill chunks. The path is surrounded by gorgeous manzanita bushes accompanied by breathtaking purple flowers. Overall a very scenic hike with an incredibly rewarding destination.

Trail was great--mostly exposed through a burn area, but some shaded spots in between. We really liked the swampy area you pass by around the 2 mile mark--clearest still-water I've ever seen. It was kind of creepy AND pretty at the same time. You have to hike down to get a better view of the falls, which I did, but my 60 yo mother opted out on--she's a smart cookie. Fun stuff!

Very easy morning hike with a very nice gift at the end! You won't be disappointed. The real payoff at the end is if you venture down the cliff, and over to the face of the falls. Also, bring sunscreen because there's very little cover to keep the sun off of you there and back.

this hike is very pleasant. has several nice views along the way. it has several inclines that are well-spaced and just steep enough to feel like you are working but not bring out too much pain in my legs that are dont get inclines on my daily walk.

all trees have been cleared and there is no brush on the path at all.
