Outstanding waterfall, challenging trail This a great little workout, a bit much for the toddlers but okay for the pre teen crowd. The hike starts uphill and stays that way for a good while. There are some flat stretches mixed in abd a couple stream crossings. Being this short the hike reaches the falls before your to tired to enjoy the falls and they are beautiful. You can cross at the base of the falls and hike up the trail on the other side for a great pinic spot. The water was high on this date and we decided to climb up the cables to the upper part of the falls, look for larkspur on the river banks, they were blooming on New Years eve when we went. A great workout with an awesome payoff. Enjoy, See you on the trail

Not for the faint of heart, this trail is mostly a vertical climb heading to the falls. Once there, the falls are fantastic

Tough trail that is straight up the whole way but it is worth the hike. The fall is one of the best I've seen.

First half of the trail Is easy second half is strenuous, take the trail to the left to get to the waterfall, careful the rocks are slippery!

Very strenuous for the less active in our group, but the waterfall at the end was well worth it.

Wouldn't recommend for a dog unless you have a really good off leash dog. Vertical is steep but the view is worth it and wasn't at all crowded on a Sunday afternoon.

The hike was straight uphill the entire time. It was a great workout and just short enough not to make it miserable. The uphill climb was well worth the view of the waterfalls. I've seen many waterfalls and this one was one of the most beautiful. Highly recommend this trail. It was also marked very well so it made it pretty easy to follow.

Tough little hike no doubt but it's absolutely worth it. The waterfall is huge and gorgeous. We went after a few days of rainfall so it was a bit slick in places. Steep inclines. The trail is quite eroded but easy to follow.

Strenuous hike but beautiful falls.

The trail itself is quite eroded but the falls are worth the hike. There is one spot that is easy to go off trail and get lost. But it was just as easy to get back onto the actual trail. Just remember once it doesn't feel like a trail it's probably not a trail.
