Very easy hike on an old logging road that's a gradual slope. I hiked the first week of April after a big rain the day before and the creek was surging and so was Mouse Creek Falls. There were wildflowers everywhere! It would be great if Mouse Creek falls were marked because other less spectacular falls could be mistaken and cause hikers to stop short and miss the real falls. The only landmark is the horse tie up bar at the falls. I recommend going on past the falls to the old carriage bridge. There's a nice pool below this bridge and you can easily go down and spend time on the boulders there for a picnic or snack.
