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.

Absolute must do! Yup, gets steep and rocky towards the end, but trail is perfectly marked. Pathway can get tight in some places; can be problematic with in/out traffic. Take your time getting down to the flat rock from the trail near the falls...gets slicks/muddy -- use trees and branches to ease down. Did the hike on Father's Day '17, witnessed all demographics. Get out and do it!

Beautiful trail. Amazing Falls. Last 1/4 mile pretty steep and rocky, but so worth it!

Lovely hike to a beautiful reservoir and then on to the falls. Parts are steep and over large rocks. We went on to the the upper falls which was had a few parts that were even steeper. The trail to the upper falls was not well defined in several places. We mainly just kept heading up & eventually came to the falls. Definitely worth the hike.

Loved this trail! Wooded area, lots of trees ! Most of it is in the shade, there's lots of birds and small animals around, if you go early it's not too crowded. The last bit to the upper waterfall is steep and is a full leg workout (which I love) but some may not. It is so worth it in the end for the powerful waterfall and sunny rocks to lay on . Great views all around!
