Not really a hike. Just a few steps from the pull off to the falls. Beautiful. Plan on returning in summer with Chaco’s and swimming trunks.

Easy hike down to Blue hole and grotto falls. Beautiful scenery . You can walk around to the left of blue hole and up through some brush to access a cliff at the top you can jump off of into it. Be careful. It can be slippery

Easy short hike to some amazing waterfalls. Usually lots of people here. Hard to get good pictures unless you go early or late on week day.

Good trail if you have little ones. Water is cold but refreshing.

Small but beautiful falls with swimming hole. Saw it when frozen and plan to go back in the spring. Not much of a hike but coming back up the stairs from the bottom of the falls is brutal if you’re not in shape.

My favorite swimming hole and waterfall. It's sometimes too crowded though.

If there is a large waterfall, it has been closed to the public. The trail is unimpressive and not as awing as you would expect a forest hiking trail to be. There was a long shallow stream that separated a clearly visible road and the trail, so the trail doesn't actually go into the forest at all... just around it. This was a very disappointing trip.
