Fantastic short trail to bring the family on. Very rewarding and very easy to complete. Bring snacks to hang out and enjoy the falls when you get there. Very wet but not many bugs.

Beautiful trail that’s fairly easy. The base of the falls is very muddy and slippery so be very careful. It is a bit of a scramble as well. The road leading to the trail is not in great condition and has lots of potholes but my friends fiat made it fine.

Enjoyed this short hike to a beautiful waterfall. Good for family’s and kids of all ages. ( just keep an eye on them once you get closer to the falls) Road to the trail head has a lot of pot holes but is manageable. Parking is on the left and a bit small. Got there around 11am on a weekday and had the trail/ waterfall all to myself. There is a little trail to get to the base of the waterfall. A bit of a scramble but not to bad.

This was my favorite waterfall so far hiking in the area. It’s a straight up 1000 foot climb, but on an easy path so you can you get it out-of-the-way early. Coming down is easier. The waterfall cascades beautifully between the rocks and the trees in a cut in the canyon. If you choose to do so, you can scramble around on mini trails in and out and around the creeks in the waterfalls. It was a great time!

Went on a Sunday afternoon, there were plenty of potholes once you reach the gravel road, just drive slow and you'll be able to dodge them! There were maybe 6 other cars there, small parking space on the side of the road & to turn around. Muddy close to the falls and river.

Great hike and beautiful scenery...family (myself) however left our kid carrying backpack with a nice coat and go-pro camera with lots of family pictures behind the car after loading back up the kiddos, pack didn't manage to make it back in the car and was left behind. Went back and it was gone. If anyone knows if someone turned this in somewhere...man, that would be HUGE and we would be so grateful!! Thank you!

Very short, modest inclines on the way in. Potholes on the drive in are very deep, keep an eye out!

Did this hike yesterday and it was amazing not very many people and ran into quite a few with dogs. Definitely worth the hike to see the main falls. Decided not to hike down to the lower falls but there is a trail to them.

I’m out of shape a bit so the inclines got me good, but the pay offs were so worth it. Even climbed down to the bottom of the falls so beautiful. Climb up sucked but would do it again in a heartbeat. Only down fall is the road is full of pot holes and you can tell it hasn’t been cleaned in awhile. Fallen branches on the road and paths.

First off, the drive to Murhut is EXTREMELY covered in potholes so be very careful and slow on your drive up the hill. In addition, the sign must have been recently removed, because all that remained was a piece of paper on the ground which we jumped out of the car to read. My group hiked with kids (13, 7, 6, 4) and overall we did great. This trail does have an incline, but the ending is such a payoff! What an amazing view of nature. Definitely will visit this again.

Although there are up and down slopes, this trail is pretty easy to hike. The waterfall at the end of the trail is beautiful and worth the hike. Pretty mossy trees on the route. Bring walking sticks to help with slippery down slopes.

The road up wasn’t bad pretty well maintained, but once you turn on to NFS Rd 2530 you will find some deep potholes. The road narrows into one lane so be cautious of other vehicles as the corners have overgrown vegetation too. The trail has a steady up hill pace till you’re just about around the corner. The falls wasn’t heard till I rounded the corner. As you approach there is a split in the trail... one section continues up to a sitting bench *but has parts washed out so watch your step* the other heads down toward the base of the falls. The lower trail requires some climbing over downed logs and slippery rocks to get across the creek, but if you manage to do that you can trek up the far side halfway up the falls to the middle point/ water hole.

Very worth the drive. Watch out for a few MAJOR potholes on the drive up. There were just a couple places on the trail that got kinda skinny with a sheer drop off, so watch kids closely.

Short, but sweet hike to a gorgeous waterfall, with lots of exploring for kids at the end. My 11yo loved it. Like the previous reviews said, watch out for the potholes on the way up. Didn’t see a sign at the actual trailhead, but it’s a fairly obvious opening.

Beautiful easy little hike! A girlfriend and I did this hike with our kids, ages 2, 4, and two 6 yr olds. They all did it no problem! Beautiful falls! A little steep area by falls.

Tons of potholes when you get off the paved portion of the road. Beautiful nice hike. Going down to the waterfalls is a little tricky and steep b.it well worth it!
