I was expecting a much nicer trail. Trash everywhere, including broken glass right on the trail. Is it that hard to carry your trash out?

The waterfall itself was neat. The flow was weak (early August) so we could walk behind it. Seems like a popular swimming hole for locals (?), so don't go there with the idea that you'll be in a secluded, quiet area. Again, trash everywhere by the swimming hole.

Trail is short but on the steep side and very narrow in parts. I rarely come across trails that I'd tell people to avoid, but this is definitely one I wouldn't waste your time on unless you're looking for something you can do in less than 30 min. Don't drive out of your way for this one.

So perfect. I went early on a Monday and had the place to myself. Other than the garbage, it really is perfect. Please leave no trace. Parents, teach your kids about leaving no trace so that we still have places like this in the future. Happy hiking.

This is NOT an easy for difficulty level. It is short but that is distance, not difficulty. As a person that is not as healthy as I once was, I pay attention to the difficulty level.
This trail is rocky, steep in parts, narrow, and rooty.
The waterfall itself is excellent when you get to it.
If you want a moderately difficult hike with rocks, roots, steep climb with an excellent waterfall, this is it. It just needs to be marked as moderate for difficulty level is all.

Epic way worth the walk

This isn't even a hiking trail. It's on a paved road and all of its private property. I would not recommend.

If you follow the directions, you'll find the trail head to the left of the gravel parking lot. Very easy up and back trail. Watch out for stinging nettles along trail and around base.
Lovely scenery.

Pretty falls. Good short hike. Not very good for little kids. Took a four year old who did the best but the 2 and 1 year old had to be carried most of the way due to uneven trail and steepness. Also it's too bad that others have left broken glass and garbage on trail.

People need to take out what they bring in.

Very nice easy hike, pretty quiet, nice waterfall you can walk behind.

Minus kids have been there breaking glass and spray painting.

I picked up some trash on the way out.

Read a review that said there navigation didn't bring them to the trailhead and it wasn't clearly marked. I didn't have that issue at all, lead me right to the gravel parking lot and I say the sign.

Very nice area

Easy but fun hike. We visited this waterfall last year when the creek flow was low, and just visited again this week with the spring runoff in full swing. Quite the difference, but both visits were equally amazing.

Easy hike to a amazing waterfall! Way too much garage though! Seriously people pack out what you pack in!

This is a short but sweet hike. The trailhead isn't marked very well aside from the "Danger Trail Closed" sign. The log that closed the trail has since been cut through to clear the path. This hike is on here twice marked as moderate and easy but it is definitely a easy hike. The directions don't take you all the way to the trailhead either, it's about a mile up the road on a large turnout that looks more like a trailhead than where the directions said it was. With all the recent snow and rain these Falls were roaring and quite a sight to see!
