Absolutely beautiful. It is kind of confusing to figure out exactly where the trail starts. You cross the dam and just go straight. Did run into one snake. Well worth the hike to the falls though, very easy. Take your suits and swim at the "beach"!

Good hike seems long than 3 miles, well worth it for the waterfall

Great trail. Cross over the river twice to keep to it.

It was a really nice trail. The directions were clear and everyone's reviews really made me want to do this trail. The waterfall was beautiful, and the stream crossings made the hot day a more bearable. It was a four- hour round trip for me but worth it.

A favorite hike when it's not raining, as the trail can get pretty mucky in spots. It's about 3.2 miles back to front (30-40 minute walk depending upon your pace). My wife and I are in our 70s and can do this walk easily. It's fairly level, with a slight downward slant. The access to the falls are steep and there are rock steps along the way that can get slippery and there are no handrails. Agree with the others who have said the signage is poor. Once you locate the dirt trail just stay on the main portion (no side trails). It will lead you to the falls where you access a steep climb down. It's well worth the effort. We've had a lot of rain this season, so far, and so the falls are very full and picturesque. If the weather is dry, like in late summer, it's not worth it to see the dribble. Currently, it's at its peak. It's not the highest (65') nor broadest, but it's very pretty and relaxing. The water is pure enough to drink from. Park rangers really need to make the signs to the falls more explicit.

This a great hike to an amazing waterfall! It is rated as easy as it's true except the actual walk down to the falls. Could be hard for some! Definite repeat!

Great easy hike! The trail is well kept up and easy markers to follow. I went a cool rainy day so no one on the trail and the rain was great for the fall!

beautiful waterfall, nice hike with 2 creek crossing

Beautiful falls! Easy hike!

Steep ascent cascading small falls.

This is a nice trail. I made it to the first waterfall, Rainbow Falls. they are beautiful falls. I waded the creek, on the first crossing. I managed to cross on the rocks, on the second, crossing.

Done it twice now. First time there was snow on the ground and only a few people. Went again a few weekends ago and the place was slammed. Beautiful falls, but you'll be right on top of people in the spring/summer.
