At .7 miles, it’s a short hike, but the steep trails around the small waterfalls makes for a great workout. It’s about 22 degrees today, so lots of beautiful ice sickles and formations in the small pools of water.

Steep trip but short hike. It was cool and pretty to see several small waterfalls as we hiked up. But we were not able to keep going because the trail became way too sideways and difficult with a child.

Nice short trail, not heavily trafficked. Doesn’t get difficult until you reach the final incline to the waterfall. Trail well marked with trail markers. The winter run off made for a nice view.

Not well maintained and very hard to hike due to overgrowth.

Steep but worth it, nice fall along the trail...for rockclimbers this is a good area too.

Water is low but still beautiful. Trail is steep and narrow. Hiking stick was helpful but not necessary. Great morning hike!

It was steep for kids after passing the falls and the trail seem to disappear after getting mid way up the trail.

This is perfect for small children. Not really a hike but it's a fun little spot.

---> the map puts you on the wrong side of reliance! It is actually on the railroad side where you park on the side of the gravel road and walk up and over the rail road, it's right next to a stream on the map. No trail head, but you can see the opening in the side of the hill.

Very steep incline right from the start. The waterfall is pretty small but if you keep going up you will get out to amazing rock formations. One part you can climb inside the rock hill through a crawl space. Huge lookouts over the river and up the mountain. I posted pictures, if you can do this hike it well worth it. Went with 2 other people and one quit out before we got to the top, so be prepared.

This is a great trail to climb and explore all around the area. The falls area is really nice and has access to the pool below with a short hike to the bottom, and it's not too steep. It's even cooler if there is snow on the mountain side. Make sure to keep an eye out for the trail markers. They were pink.

Nice hike. Trail mostly well maintained, can be difficult to locate in places. Fairly steep incline. Beautiful, secluded little waterfalls and pools. Well worth it.
