This is a gorgeous waterfall, and sits in a beautiful rock amphitheater shaped area. Crossing a bridge just adds to the charm of this waterfall.

Love it! Just a little steep, but I made it around the the whole thing!

it isn't a loop. We hiked way past the other red lines, but no loop. it is a beautiful rocky trail, even past the waterfall.

The Hike down is not hard at all and not that far, it's about a 10 to 15min hike to the waterfall, If you go somewhat slow and take your time you will have no problems. The rocks are kind of slick when rains but It's worth the hike down once you get to the falls. The hike up isn't bad either.

Trail was HARD! It's basically straight up and down and pretty much nothing but rocks. It's beautiful once you get down to the water, but I never thought I would make back to the top once I made it down.

This trail was quick and awesome ! It's steep and mostly rock...haven't been hiking in years so for us it was a little hard going down but the climb up was easy. The waterfalls are beautiful and after making it down it felt good to go for a swim.

Really enjoyed our hike. We went to the bottom of the falls (left out of parking lot) and descended to the bottom of the falls. Beautiful. Followed the climbers loop to the second access. This section was rocky and climbed eventually to top of the ridge. Chatted up the climbers and listened to the creek. Looped back on top on the main trail back to the falls. About 2 hours. Going the other direction would have had us descending the climbers loop which would have been more difficult but we could have swam near the falls. Great day loop.

The hike down to the falls takes a maximum of like 20 mins. It's a pretty steep one but well worth it. the water stays cold even in the heart of summer.
