The waterfall is unnamed, which is surprising considering its height and beauty. The trail up to the falls is an easy hike, but once at the falls, if you want to get down to the base of the falls, there is a bit of a scramble down (and up).

Very easy and flat trail for kids. Can be difficult with kids in carriers if you hike past the waterfall for 3.5 more miles. Great place to wade in on a sunny day!

Have done this trail several times but today we chose this one for my Mother's Day hike. It's been raining a lot so the trail is muddy but the Falls were heavy and beautiful. This is a great family hike!
