Awesome trail. Gets pretty steep and technical the closer to the waterfall you get but it is well worth it!

Great hike, beautiful, and the waterfall is amazing! The last part of the hike up to the waterfall is steep, but it was well worth it.

Close to town, the reservoir is great (till it dries up in the fall) and the waterfall is great. A little rocky and steep towards the end but still great.

Nice trail with abundant water; if you have filtration or purification no need to carry much water. Amateur signs (looks like a boy scout project) have appeared on the trail both before the wilderness area and within it. The mileage provided on the signs does not appear to be accurate. Trekking poles are a plus.

I love this trail! It's mostly shady which is nice, considering it's very steep especially as you get towards the back end of the trail. It also can be slippery at points so keep your eyes open and be careful! Bring enough water with you. The falls are a great place to stop and have a snack with large flat areas and magnificent views.
