Great half a day hike! Waterfall absolutely spectacular. Moderate hike are some tricky parts you have to climb up to the waterfall.
great hike! very steep the last 1/2 mile beautiful falls
a beautiful waterfalls for sure. a bit overgrown with laurels. it is is a easy hike, except for the last 1/4 mile, it is brutal, coming back out. it is worth the effort.
Great trail. Seeing the falls is worth it.
Rough hike out but we'll worth the trip for the view of the falls
Fav hike so far!!!
Completed this trail today in 25 degree weather with 6-8 inches of snow. Awesome scenery with snow covering every branch in the forest. When my wife and I made it to the waterfall I was able to climb all of the way up on the ice and stand next to the falls. After the steep climb back out both of our pants were frozen all of the way up to our knees. We were lucky enough that someone the day before had made the trek and left us a great path to follow, otherwise I think it may have been fairly easy to lose our way in the steep decline before the creek.
This was an awesome day hike. There was some challenges getting close the the falls but well worth it. the trail was very muddy and slick in places and climbing back out a little tricky.
It is an easy hike to the falls and the hike is worth it. Beautiful! There was still some ice and snow around the falls. Loved the giant roots of the trees close to the falls. The last downhill part takes you on the stream and there is a water crossing before going up close to the falls.
