A lovely place well marked trails initially but if you follow red along the Creek trail to the end it does get confusing to come back up highlands (blue) trail. Beautiful flowers, rocks and waterflows and the waterfall itself is very nice. Good for all ages and abilities.

Not the best trail I've been on, overgrown, most parts of the trail are only a person wide and easy to get off the trail. Hiking boots are recommended as this trail is a bit overgrown and rattlesnakes are known to be in the blakeslee area. The waterfall is nice, but if you are looking for a big waterfall with a lot of other smaller ones near by this trail is not for you. This was more of a marshy/swampy area. Decent trail in the forest closer to the end but other than that kinda boring. There is many places to sit down on this trail if you wish.
