no waterfall, was completely dried up at the fall. All the cigarette butts and graffiti on the rocks ruined it for me. Felt more like i was hiking in a canyon in the city or something. Dont waste your time going here. Maybe in spring but even if there was water i wouldn't go.

Great swimming hole !!

Went with my daughter and 3 grandchildren ages 5, 9, and 10. The trail is easy until you get to the destination where the waterfall and swimming hole is. You just have to go slow and be careful getting down to it, but it was totally worth it. It was so beautiful and peaceful, I’m going back. Please take out what you bring in, there was a lot of garbage and broken glass in some spots.

The hiking part was really just following a short trail to a gorgeous swimming hole/waterfall! A great place for whole family, will definitely be returning to this spot throughout the summer!

The road in is a local back road, not well maintained but navigable. Look for the bent cattle gate with two large boulders (GPS led us right to it).

Easy hike in with our 4 year old and 12 year old kids. A little steep at the end to a sweet little swimming hole. Wildflowers and butterflies were abundant. Watch out for poison oak. As always, please pack out what you bring in.

Gorgeous walk kinda confusing when you pull up as to where you need to start the trail but the waterfall and area were great

Absolutely beautiful, once you hit the North Fork and head up river it pretty much turns into a goat trail. Be advised. If you do make it back to the waterfall you won’t be disappointed.

Great little day hike with a cascading water falls and swimming holes throughout. I would rate the hike down as an easy hike. Not too over-crowded and you’ll be able to find a peaceful spot without too much trouble if the main water fall is crowded. Great jumping options rated beginner to expert and as of the first week of April ‘18 the water isn’t as cold as you’d think. Get in! Highly recommended for single, double and family groups. Will be coming back to this beautiful hike/swimming hole.

Great for an easy introduction for kids that aren’t used to hiking, or when you are short on time.

Nice hike. Low impact but gets rocky by the end. Peaceful and pretty. Nice hike along creek to waterfall.

One of my favorite trails in the whole country. Seriously. I ran this with my dog and it was incredibly beautiful the whole time. After a hard right turn into a canyon the trail keeps going up passed a few swimming holes and waterfalls/cascades but turns pretty sketchy where large trees have fallen over the trail and some parts of it are washed out. Just turn back wherever you get uncomfortable. But I definitely recommend this to anyone.

Also, there are a few cool camp grounds on the road leading to the trail that I believe were only $5 or $10.

Very nice hike , not too hard, the waterfall is beautiful

Very easy hike. Swimming hole is awesome. No traffic on the trail and then only 2 other people swimming..

Such an awesome swimming hole! The water felt and looks absolutely amazing :)

Mild hike that more than pays off. Swimming behind and through the waterfall was so invigorating. The swimming hole was perfect and if you do a little more exploring there are some others nice swimming holes upstream and downstream. Definitely a memorable experience.

Best to go hiking early spring.

it was a good trail, easy good view of the river, near the end where it loops back up it follows a creek with some swimming holes. the trail continues past the end. I didn't go too much further.

Love this trail in early spring, formally private land and was mostly frequented by those who preferred to enjoy the outdoors au'natural

Not much of a hike, but the waterfall is great. There are multiple different levels to jump from, and even jumping from 30ish feet up you won't touch the bottom of th pool. There is also a shallower, waste deep area to swim in.

Amazing waterfall and pool to swim in, kind of hard to find there is a small grocery store on the way the people there can help with directions, take Greeley Hill rd until there is a dirt patch parking lot on the left right before a small wooden bridge.

We went up there to go swimming in Diana Falls (where the big water fall is) and it was absolutely horrible to get there and back. The walk was 15 minutes of rocks and dirt and a very dangerous , narrow trail. Not only that - but the GPS to my phone wouldn't work because of no service & there were NO SIGNS TELLING US WHERE DIANA FALLS WAS SO I WENT DOWN A RODE WITH TONS OF BIG ROCKS AND DIRT PROBABLY MESSING UP EVERYTHING ON MY CAR JUST BRCSUSE OF NO SIGNS. will never go again!

Easy hike for kids. Watch out for poison oak.

First time visiting and it was great! Path to get down and close to the water was a little tricky at first but once you're down there by the water, it is such a great sight. And the breeze sends some of the spray from the waterfall your way which feels great after a hot hike. Definitely can't wait to go back once it's hotter.

Perfect trail to enjoy on Easter.

I've been going here for a couple of years and I love it

It's a very simple and short hike with a nice payoff for the effort. Very pretty and quiet setting. I had the falls to myself. I wish I liked have jumped in but not a good idea in December. I would love to co e back when weather is warmer.

The name of this falls is incorrectly given. This is Diana Falls. Don't know where the name given comes from. Even the old times in the area knew this as Diana Falls as kids.
