Nice trail with only moderate difficulty. Beautiful falls you can get up close and personal with. Beware for those who don’t usually work out, the gradual incline out will make sure you acknowledge that. Great hike with teenagers!

the trail is overgrown and muddy. do not walk. it's pointless! when I came out on the road, I just turned around and went back down the trail to the Jeep and the lookout is directly off the road. so you're just going to see The overlook just keep driving and you will find it. the walk is not scenic.

This trail also goes by the name Jeffery Hell trail which is the first 2 miles out and back. This trail extends for another 2 out so basically 4 out and back. Basics: Moderate hike, nice creek, isolated, huge variation of experiences. Starts off at the left side of the parking lot with a light and easy wide path descent. Quickly narrows for the rest of the trip. The path will follow the creek at the bottom. There are small falls. There is a moderately steep descent to the creek but it is short and there are parts where the plant life crowds the path. I was there after a few days of rain so the path was also a light runoff in spots. I really enjoyed the trip and used my water creek trail running shoes the whole time. I saw no people at all. At times you can hear the Cherahola bikers in the distance but you feel like you are in the middle of no where. I’ll post some pictures since there aren’t many.

Basics: Moderate hike, nice creek, isolated, huge variation of experiences. Starts off at the left side of the parking lot with a light and easy wide path descent. Quickly narrows for the rest of the trip. The path will follow the creek at the bottom for as far as you want down the Citco trail. I extended my trip a mile or so. There is a moderately steep descent at the end but it is short and there are parts where the plant life crowds the path.

Nice falls for sure worth the hike. With the exception of the yellow jackets and 2 copper heads. it wa a great hike and we will do it again. the road to the falls over the years has been sometimes easy other times washed out

Gate closed for covid 19. Added .3 miles to walk to boat ramp to start trail. Nice path with a few blow downs but only one tree across trail. Nice scenic relaxing hike.

Awesome little falls. It's a good hike down, but well worth the trip. The parking area is rather small, so it's best to go early, or during the week. Make sure you take the right hand split at the fork on Witt Rd. Or go left for an awesome 4x4 trail with stream crossings. Going left also leads back out to 68.

Very nice trail to a wonderful waterfall! Trail has two switchbacks and no level stretches - it's either all downhill, or uphill on return. Lots of water flowing. Trail is easy walking, except toward the bottom where some careful navigation over/around rocks is necessary. There were several muddy areas. If after viewing the falls you wish to proceed downstream along the hillside, there is a minor path but it's very slippery - use caution! The 3 mile road to the falls is a combination of paved and gravel. There are areas were the pavement has deteriorated, and also deep potholes where the gravel begins. Not a major problem, but best to drive slow.

Very well made trail with nice long switchbacks that make the 400 foot climb out of the gorge very tolerable. Lots of water in the creek and falls, absolutely beautiful. I was left wishing the trail extended along the creek upstream and downstream to see more of this stunning area.

Hiked to the falls today. Beautiful and heavy flow today from the rains last night.

Nice trail. Make sure to go all the way to the end (have to climb over a few rock piles) to get a beautiful view of the falls. Worth the effort.

I have never seen so many water sources on one trail; perfect for any camper. However, if it has been raining, the creeks and branches will be up and the trail very muddy in places. I hiked in the early Spring, but late Spring or Summer, the vegetation will be THICK! Last 1/2 mile is steep (heavy pack carriers be careful) and requires walking in and crossing over a creek in many times. The last section requires you to ford accross but not enough rocks to step all the way accross, so be prepared to shead your boots. This last bit will nearly be impassible during peak Spring & Summer because the vegetation will just be too thick to get through. One major bright spot is there are 3-4 great tent spots and numerous, fantastic spots for hammockers. Overall, good but not great trail.

This was a very beautiful trail with a couple great steap climbs. There were several beautiful waterfalls along the way to the first big climb. The only part of the trail I did not care for was the 2 mile section after the first big climb. The foot bed was very rocky. You do get some good views along the rocky stretch. There are some old lumber cables along the trail, some of which were couple inches in diameter. Finally, the trail provides you with many flowers blooming along the majority of hike.

As other reviews have noted, it's more than 8.5 miles. I clocked 10.5 and as turned out 5 miles in. Wildcat Creek is a cool hangout spot, but after that it becomes pretty tough. It's overgrown and easy to lose the trail in a few spots. But if you want a good workout, this trail is for you.

This trail was AMAZING! The waterfall was well worth the hike. Absolutely beautiful. I would consider the hike to be easy/moderate. Easy going down, and a little harder coming back. Recommend off road vehicles for the drive up.

Great trail, we’ve done several in the area but have overlooked this one. Nice short but rewarding trail. All slight downhill getting there, then you come back; perfect! Highly recommend with entire family.

Great, easy and short hike!

Great, easy and beautiful trail! Beautiful scenery on the trail of the mountains, the lake, the dam, the trees, creeks, a little waterfall, flowers, mushrooms, fungi, etc. Our family had a wonderful time!

The trail was very confusing and in marked. The maps took me to a long road which was horrible (very big deep potholes) we ended up just parking where we saw cars but had to ask someone where the trail was. It went up about a mile then we lost where the trail was. It is unmarked and hard to figure out if you are unfamiliar. I wouldn’t recommend this if you don’t go on many hikes. I hike very often and it was hard for me. (finding it & staying on the trail) It’s a beautiful view though.

I hiked this trail with my toddler and 9 year old. Do not recommend! It was beautiful and we enjoyed our time there. I’ll definitely be back with the oldest kids again. It’s a pretty steep incline and some places are washed out but probably because it’s been raining the past couple days. It’s a beautiful hike!

Great trail to relax and enjoy. Easy to walk or bike. It was empty when we were there but I could see it being really busy in warmer weather and the fall. That might be a drawback, but overall we really enjoyed it.
