This is a super short walk to a waterfall. We were the only ones there the entire hour we stayed. When you park you walk up and cross the highway. IMPORTANT: Once you are on the other side of the highway you'll see three ways to go - one to the left, one straight ahead and one to the right (uphill). Uphill **does not** lead to the waterfall and is very strenuous (with kids). Go to the left (across the water) or walk straight ahead (over a log) and the waterfall is right there. Great area to sit and stack rocks and relax for a while. My toddler loved just throwing rocks into the waterfall.

I wouldn't call this a hike, but it's a nice short walk and a beautiful waterfall.

Really pretty and fun with the kids. However, we went at least half a mile up the trail and had to turn around and come back down. When you spot the creek near the road, just follow the water. Bring closed-toed shoes that can get wet and just walk upstream. If you follow the trail and start hitting switchbacks, you've gone the wrong way. That water was less than a foot deep, 1-2" in some spots so our kids had a great time and we weren't worried about safety. The cold water was a welcome treat on such a warm afternoon. The kids had a fun time exploring and we got some great pictures. I will definitely go back. I just wish we had known to avoid the actual trail. Hopefully others will read this and not make the same mistake we did.

Very small trail. Decided to walk over a log and jump from rocks in the creek. Fun! Got to get close to the waterfall. Also climbed up a rock and just admired it. The rocks are orange/red and the trees in the area make for a beautiful hidden spot. There was a couple rock climbing, too. Not familiar with that, but apparently it's doable if you are.

This is a neat little waterfall that you can walk right up to if you make your way from rock to rock in the little stream that comes from it. I came down from hiking Mill B North Fork and enjoyed this little spot at the end. It's basically just off the road and takes only a minute or two to get to, so if you want a workout I would climb up through Mill B also- there's some great overlooks on that trail.

I'd actually give this 3 1/2 stars. We forgot what the reviews said about this hike and went the wrong way, turning what would have been a nearly nonexistent hike into a mountain goat experience. There were no trail makers in the parking lot or once we got across the road. I'll echo other reviews, DON'T take the obvious trail with the sign post, but missing sign that goes up the mountain. Go down to the stream. We crossed it, but you don't have to. It's a lovely waterfall, and hardly a hike at all. It's worth a stop in passing, but don't make it your destination hike if you're looking for the chance to hike and not just the opportunity to see a waterfall.

This is basically a non-hike because it's right next to the road. If you park in the lot in the upper loop of the "s" there is a trail which goes up and crosses the road at the top of the "s". Once you're on the other side of the road, find your way down to the river and follow it up about 30-50 yards until you can see the waterfall. Do not take the established trail to the right which starts a steep path to the east. That's a different hike. There are different ways up to the waterfall, either crossing the river or not, but you need to stick to the river. There is what appears to be the opening to an abandoned mine shaft near the waterfall as well.
