Great trail! I took my wife and 4 kids (7-12) up to the falls today, and we really enjoyed it. There are some pretty steep drop offs on the trail, so keep your kids with you! Beautiful trail and beautiful falls!

A short and rewarding hike, but not always easy. This trail has a couple of steep sections; and because the Park doesn't do regular maintenance on it, the rocks and roots are pretty treacherous if you're not paying attention. The falls are beautiful though, and it's well worth finding this little trail that isn't listed on the Park map.

A short, and steep in places, hike to a lovely waterfall. The trail is not very well maintained and has plenty of rocks and roots--you have to watch your steps carefully. A couple of nice mountain views. We saw a bear cub when we hiked it, but no mama bear or siblings.

Good trail, has rocks and roofs. Water falls is picturesque. Beware of the yellow jacket nest where the trees are marked with caution tape
