lovely area and the streams babbling over mossy rocks and multiple waterfalls make it even more special.

Easy going down but a little hard coming up. Beautiful and worth every step!

Because of the length, I would not call this easy. It was a moderately strenuous hike down to a 42' waterfall. The trail was steep in a few places, but mostly a gradual decent to the falls. Not too much water was flowing, but still a nice hike. The Jones Run Falls Trailhead is at MP 84.1 in the Skyline Drive. The nearest restroom is at the Dundo Picnic Grounds, MP 83.7.
