Nice hike. A bit rough getting down to the first falls.

Short, mostly uphill. The wet and rocky path made the walk difficult for some of our group. At the end of the trail marked on this map, there is a steep scramble path down to the base of the falls.

Epic short hike to an amazing falls. Very cool camping locations near the falls. Beware aware of Black Bear in area. When water levels are high this trail really transforms into something special.

Did this hike a couple of times this week and the falls were frozen. Beautiful!!! Pretty easy hike. Always quiet and pretty. If you can cross the creek above the falls it is worth it to go a little further up more falls. We have done this hike in the spring and in winter and much prefer winter. Views are a lot better

No markings. Trail complexly covered with rocks. Waterfall is beautiful once you get to it.

The trail was fairly easy. The incline was a little steep initially. The waterfall was beautiful! If looking for a short hike and a little quiet this one is it.
