Wonderful hike, pretty easy. Driving there was great until you reach the last two miles. There are a lot of potholes, but it's not ne necessary to have SUV. My Honda sedan handled it well.

Beautiful trail. if you hike the trail that goes above the falls, at a certain point you will come to a fork, with the left fork described via sign as "parking". If you take this route you will be on the loop and actually go slightly farther south than the parking lot but wind back up to it. When you get to a new bridge cross it, keep going, and you will eventually be back at the parking lot even though it feels at points like you are headed the wrong direction. There are several spots where it is kind of hard to tell what is the trail, so know you will stay near the river.

Wow! What a sight! Hiked it in two hours with a cold! Difficult because I was sick. But well worth the effort!

Oh and the road to get there is pothole infested!! Make sure to drive slow or have AWD

Great trail, the alternate trail comes to the bottom of the waterfalls with a nice photo opportunity, but from there the trail is blocked by downed trees as it switches back and forth up the hill to the top of the falls, no problem if you're fit and able to climb, the trail back has a few offshoots near the last bridge but follow the signs for the trail and the parking lot is just a few minutes away. Take a compass to guarantee you don't take a wrong turn on the unmarked turn. Good luck and happy trails.

Fantastic hike with breath-taking reward. Definitely on the easy end of moderate as far as hikes go.

very beautiful hike that has moderate climb. Not strenuous and would be suggested to any hiking enthusiast who is looking for a day hike. there are lots of people and it does get very hot and muggy.
