We really enjoyed this water fall hike. It was super private and lightly trafficked. Felt like you were out in the middle of no where. We didn't see another soul out here while we were hiking. Our dog loved it and was able to hike off leash the entire time. The water fall was huge and beautiful.

Super easy short hike and stunning waterfall!

On the way a group of deer kept me company. Made it to the top just in time to set up camp and watch the sunset. Completely alone at night, watching the towns twinkling far below made me feel like I was the king of the world!

A very nice hike especially in spring. I hiked today again at the beginning of summer.Less flowers more flies, but the waterfall still nice and flows well. The forest also pretty after you leave the camp area behind. Bring 2$, because you need to deposit it for parking

Over the past 2 days I've hiked this 3 times! I love this trail, it's super easy with one little spot that gets difficult because it is very steep but rather than that it's an awesome trail.

Great for the entire family to be out,and a nice waterfall

Beautiful short hike. If I didn't read the reviews I would of missed the fork info. Yes at the fork turn left. Beautiful waterfall.

I love to be outside but am far from being in shape. It's an easy hike and very relaxing. When the water is calm you can find some huge crawdads.

Short hike, was not difficult at all. The waterfall was abolutley gorgeous. Very serene and secluded. Highly reccomend for a short daytrip

This is a beautiful and enchanting hike. There are several areas to stop and just enjoy nature along the trail. Once you come to a fork and a tree that is clearly marked with blue. Go left and up the hill to get to the fall. This trail is very well maintain and easy for any age. I am looking forward to my next visit.

take the fork to the left. we knew to do this and still missed it. so did several other hikers. it looks like it's just a way to go down to see the babbling brook but go down and across and then it goes steep uphill. it's beautiful and breathtaking!

loved it

It was a great hike with beautiful views. The day I hiked it it had rained a lot that week and the night before which made for full, beautiful falls. However, the the lake was nearly completely empty which made for a disappointing experience at the top, only because I was anticipating a nice swim to cool off. Still an awesome hike!
