Easy trail to walk down, pretty cool checking out the creek around the rocks. Falls themselves are pretty small unless after a big rain.

It was a little difficult to find, but we did get to the right trail! On the road coming up, there will be two gated entrances nearby each other, one on the south side of the road and the other on the north side. The trail to Hector Falls is on the south side, and has more room to park. No signs for it, although there will be a sign welcoming foot traffic

The trail was well maintained and easy to walk, although it was more work going back up! The waterfall itself wasn't very big due to recent dry weather, but I'm sure it would be bigger after a good rain or in the spring. Loved how secluded it was, we didn't see any cars on the road and no other hikers on the trail. We took our two dogs as well and they had a great time, too! As another reviewer mentioned, about halfway down the trail there is a fork in the road, take the trail to the left to reach the falls.

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.
