Located on a Methodist Camp (Alta Mons) and open to the public to hike for free.  Some days are off limits due to camp.  Check their website.  This is a pretty easy hike, although rocky in a few areas.

Fun trail that leads to a beautiful, accessible waterfall. Will definitely be returning!

Beautiful setting, moderately challenging hike. You’re probably gonna get your feet wet in the creek crossings and take bug spray!!!!

Nice trail. About a mile of walking down a gravel road to get to it. You have to cross the creek 3 times. It had been raining a few days before we went so no way to cross without getting wet. Looked like there could be a dry crossing if the water wasn’t up.

Certain areas are iffy but a good challenge. A little difficult with a hunting bread dog.

this was an incredible hike to a beautiful waterfall!! I went with a group of friends at the beginning of June and the water was quite refreshing, the hike was pretty easy, and we were in and back by lunch time.
