Loved it! It’s not as far as it’s posted it’s about 1.6 miles to the waterfall you can go further but it’s rock climbing. So worth it!

Awesome hike, hard at the beginning with the switchbacks but other than that pretty easy.

My dog and I do this trail frequently and I would recommend it to anyone. There are several different ways to get up if you are willing to explore. The sandy switchbacks in the beginning are the roughest part in my opinion. Great Waterfall if you complete the hike.

We're visitors from CA and some friends turned us on to this beautiful river hike. Would have given five stars but found a lot of rubbish, a few carved up trees and the trails were poorly marked if even existent. Pretty sweet waterfall at the top. Fun little hike & will definitely do this hike again next time we visit.
