off road driving
My dad and I tried this today but we were unable to reach the falls. We could only see them from a distance. I ended up with 5 ticks on me and hopefully I don't get poison oak because it is EVERYWHERE. The brush is so overgrown that the trail was often impossible to follow once you turn off from Milk Ranch Road. I wouldn't go back without a machete and long pants and sleeves. This will challenge you.
Totally worth seeing... Mostly single track that parallels the rail road. I would def recommend taking a spare inner tube as there are rocks, gravel, wood etc on the trail. Round trip from the trail head to the HUGE wooden bridge was 14.6 miles. Also make sure to bring a flashlight as the tunnels are fairly dark. Overall great adventure.
