20 creek crossing total out and back . Definitely need to go in spring or after a lot of rain to have good flow on the falls but a beautiful area to hike .

Trail is a wide 4x4/ ATV path but littered with trash and currently run amuck with bear hunters. Find another spot

The trail was awesome. Not to steep but certain places get more slope. 10 creek crossings on the way to the falls that are mostly easily crossed and a few that are smaller than others. Great hike

Great hike. Very slippery in areas and a lot of creek crossings. Falls were beautiful and the trail follows the stream. So green and lush. Added on Pete’s Branch Falls trail. Beautiful cove and even though water flow was low the rock cliff was very pretty. Jeep road is rough with many wet stream crossings

This trail starts with a gravel (slightly washed out) Jeep trail then narrows into a single-person path to a waterfall. I was surprised this was marked an easy trail, because you have to cross the creek at least seven times - not easy crossings either. The creek was up on the day I went, so my feet got wet since water was up to my calf. Some of the crossings had big rocks to jump on, but at least three did not at all. The creek would have to be really low to not get wet at least once. After the Pete’s Branch split, it was not particularly steep until the very end. It’s a well-maintained trail. The Waterfall was peaceful but there are not a lot of dry places to sit and enjoy the view. I wish I had brought a blanket because the nearby rocks were wet from overhead drippings of the rock facing. Still, it was a great place for a snack and to enjoy the peaceful waterfall.

This trail follows a rough gravel road for a little over a mile. With a mild incline and several tricky creek crossings but still manageable to cross. Once the road ends you follow the blue markers for Pete's Branch Falls on the left for another half mile to the falls. Definitely worth the trip out there. The falls are amazing!

Trail follows a rocky jeep trail 3/4 of the way to the falls. After road ends trail becomes more pleasant.

Crosses the creek several times. Hard not to get wet feet especially with kids.

We couldn't make it all the way to the falls. We heard what sounded like a bear so we decided to turn back. It was a beautiful hike.
