I couldn’t find it. :-( Two roads diverged in the wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. :-)

The trail itself is insignificant. The waterfall is what you'll come here for, and it's worth the trip. Getting there is somewhat confusing. Follow the directions to the gravel road and drive until you come to a fork with a high pass (right) and a low pass (left, marked FS Rd 4663 B) - take the lower/left and drive some more. It ends at a small clearing with room for 4-5 cars. Park and take the path at the end of the clearing for the lower falls. 4WD may be necessary after heavy rain or snow. Low vehicles may not get through without scraping at a few points. A small FWD SUV is fine for normal conditions.

Short hike to beautiful falls! There are some steep, rocky spots and can be a bit muddy after rain, but well worth it!

Well worth the drive out there. Turn at house and go all the way back several miles until you reach a clearing. You go back at least two miles. Park car in clearing and there are two trails. One trail leads up and the other goes down. Head to the one that goes down, walk about a quarter of a mile to the waterfall. Amazing! We sat and ate lunch on one of the big rocks in the middle of the fall. If you go back to your car and head to the other trail, go about a quarter of a mile to see another part of the fall. This upper part isn't quite as large and is challenging to get to. Closely watch for a trail to the left. It is very steep to get down to where you can see it.

This is a great hike! Started at 475 and headed up Art Loeb, following clockwise to Farlow Gap (didn't go all they way up to the Parkway) and the upper portion of Daniel Ridge. The first 6 miles are the most intense with great ascent and decent portions and some terrific views. The second half of the hike is more mellow but offers lots of water and beautiful landscape. Had to hit the road to get back to the car but the rest of the day made it sufferable.

short trail to beautiful falls with great swimming hole underneath. trail a little worse for wear after the winter.

popular trail, very short. Good place for a picnic or to take a new hiker

Short trail, but easy to miss the entrance. The trail is immediately after the last bridge on the left.

The length of the trail is short. Several spots along the way have had trees fall and it seems they are doing some maintenance in those spots. The trail is tucked away under a canopy of trees so there are several places that are muddy. It's a narrow, rocky trail that lead to a set of steep steps that take you down to the pool at the base of the falls. Beautiful 40+ foot waterfall.
