The trail head was relatively easy to find, at a larger parking area on the right side of the road. We took off on the road and went along the western side of the loop. The trail is not marked and the best way is not always on the east side of the creek as shown by the red line. We got a bit confused after the creek came in from our left and ended up turning around coming back the same way - did not finish the loop, saw but did not get all the way to the falls at the head of the creek. We will go back and try again.

A good workout! Lots of hills and climbing, hiking stick would be helpful. Lovely, thick, dense foliage! Well maintained. Close to town, and not far from the road but can feel very isolated. My 12 year old daughter and I walked it on a wet day and really enjoyed it. We walked counter clockwise, parking at the spill way and that might be a slight bit easier with more downhill, lots of hills either way. Not certain I would walk it alone, took about 1.75 hours and saw maybe 11 people on the trail. Had to walk on the road to get back to our car at the spillway.

Did it in the rain and the view was cloudy but definitely worth it

This is such a pretty trail and has been maintained to have good drainage.

Falls were nice. Trail is in a campground. Nice little walk. Watch out for snakes, we came across 2 along side the trail.

quiet beautiful trail.
