Great short trail. Well kept. There is a small faded sign at the top of the trail. Worth the hike down and back up.

Very easy trail to follow and shaded the whole way. Steep downgrade to start, then becomes more gradual. Waterfall at the end is beautiful but a little buggy.

Just hiked the trail yesterday. only steep part is coming back up the last hill. Trail is clearly marked with LF painted on a tree in the pull off spot. the waterfall is pretty cool.

This trail was short and well-maintained, the rock formations in this area where displayed nicely on this little hike along with the waterfall. The way back up was a little strenuous and the drive in through unpaved roads was tough and slow but worth it if your already in Alleghany.

Nice falls. This is truly a straight down and straight up hike. We had no difficulty finding it using our all trails app GPS.

Not sure why people struggle with this. It is straight down from where gps parks you. Is a little steep coming back up last section. Shouldnt be an issue for able bodied people. Waterfall was gushing due to a week of rain

Definitely not along the all trail map but we did eventually find it and the falls are beautiful! You need to keep going past the all trails starting point on the map like other reviews have said, See recorded trail for the location

What an unexpected find! The photos don't do this justice. We went during snowmelt and it was just fantastic. High water flow, beautiful multi-level falls. Elevation, big rocks, varied landscape. We hiked around to the other side of the falls, great area.

We went there on Sunday January 13th, the road was horrible and full of potholes, the directions were not correct, we couldn’t find the trailhead or the falls, we did trek through the woods and timber to the creek, which was beautiful with the ice, the next person to go there, please mark the trailhead with a sign or something , so others can find and enjoy!

Went on a winter day. Had the falls to myself. Easy trail with rock garden towards the top. A nice place to photograph.

Driving directions from Marienville- At the intersection in the center of town turn (west) past the fire hall heading towards Abraxis. Drive approximately 7 miles. You will pass Abraxis and come to an intersection. The road turns to dirt (and potholes, so slow down). Turn left onto Forest Rd 180. Go exactly 2.3 miles and the pull off is on the right. You’ll see the path going down over the hill. Round trip down and back is only .7 mile. I’m not sure who came up with directions on here, but I’m guessing they were half asleep or stoned. Anyone can do this “hike”. If your old or out of shape, just wear appropriate shoes and take your time. First visit here, 12/4/18 with maybe an inch of snow on the ground. The trail was pretty clear. Not bad at all. The winter views are amazing.

THE MOST UNDERRATED TRAIL IN ALLEGHENY!! This trail is a must. Yes the trailhead was a tad bit hard to find but the trail and short hike was well worth it! This waterfall is huge and offers many trails around the falls! So happy we stumbled along this gem!

Going in from Marionville? Google's destination was maybe a half mile short, we kept driving before hitting a small 3-4 car pullout that had a fire pit in the middle, close to the grass.

A bit steep in the beginning, but becomes less so as the trail gets toward the falls.

I only have it 4 Stars because it was difficult to find. VERY IMPORTANT!!! Start your odometer when you find 180. Go 2.5 miles!!! Don’t follow the lat & Lon GPS, it doesn’t take you far enough up the rode! As of July 6,2018 someone has made a wood stick teepee to show you were the trail is. There is a grass pull out on your right side and then you’ll see the trail. Hike is very quick with a beautiful view at the end!

Great hike and even better waterfall. I absolutely love this spot. The spot to park can be a bit tricky to find the first time. Once you find it, there's a descent down to the waterfall. The waterfall itself is very, very pretty and excellent for photography. We have had the falls area all to ourselves at times, and at other times have found it a bit crowded. I guess that just depends on when you go. The hike out is steep but it's not long at all.

We missed the parking area as well. We are also glad we read the reviews because we found road 180b and turned around. We even ended up parking in the parking area to allow a logging truck to pass and we still missed it so you have to keep your eyes open, the trailhead is off to the right of the parking area. The hike is shorter than 1.7 miles, atleast it feels like it. It is so beautiful once you get down there, definitely worth it and getting a little lost on these beautiful back roads is fun all in itself!

Glad we read the reviews ahead of time, we did follow the directions from all trails, but we're glad someone said that 180b is too far down the road. When we got there we realized we needed to turn around, and it was the last turn off before 180b. The trail looks like an deer path from the small parking area, but it's much more defined once you get past the grass. It was easy to follow, though definitely of moderate difficulty with the steep incline on your way back. It was shorter than all trails lists it as, more like 1 or 1.5 miles round trip. Beautiful waterfall in spite of the dry weather we've had, definitely worth the hike. We took our two dogs along as well and they had a great time. Very secluded trail, and we saw no other hikers.

Alltrails location was vague. Could not find the start point. Some rough roads approaching from west, slightly better approaching from east via Marienville. Got a map from Marienville Ranger Station. Going west, if you've reached forest road 180B, you've gone too far. No marker, only a parking lot big enough for about 3 cars on the north side of the road. We parked too early; the ranger map said 1.1miles after the turn off of 128, we parked west of the Google maps marker, and should've gone half a mile further. Had to walk a half mile west through brush, haha. We found the falls and came back on the correct trail. Don't make our mistake and it's a cool falls after an easy hike. There are no markings, but from the parking lot is a very obvious dirt trail down that should take no skills to find at all.

A very nice afternoon hike with a nice waterfall for a reward, when you get there. Secluded waterfall that looks untouched by humans. No graffiti or trash. Although a short hike, it has a steep desend and a steep return. Trail head has a gravel parking lot and trail is marked faintly with white paint on trees. Trail path is lightly used.
