Just make sure you go to forest road 258H off of FR133, not 258E. 258H is about 1/4 mile down the road from E! That was my only gripe! Can't believe they'd name roads that way.

Very nice walk. Just make sure you take the trail to left as you are walking down. Beautiful waterfall!

Very easy trail, Its kinda tricky to find the starting point as its not well marked, But its a big payoff once you get to the end, Almost half of this trail follows a gated dirt road (gate is locked every time I have gone there) . The other half follows a stream. Its not a well marked trail,( in fact Iam not sure its marked at all) but its still easy to find it once you find the right starting point. Ask locals for help with that if you need it. This is a easy day hike but it is down hill to the falls so that means uphill a few miles back. There are only a few falls in this area so its worth the trip.
