Nice trail for an overcast day. Smaller parking lot but easily accessible for most cars. Arrived at 2pm and there were seven other cars there. First two miles are through a lot of forest with minimal elevation changes. After the two mile campsites, there’s some elevation going up to the big hump and some very beautiful views. However, when you’re almost at the top, the overgrowth starts to get very, very thick. I gave up because I didn’t feel like continuing to bushwhack. Trail could use a little maintenance once COVID is done!

I loved this trail, great river/forest/uphill both ways workout to a beautiful view. I do think it’s helpful to be realistic. I drove my small sedan there and the potholes were ok to navigate if you took it slow and were very careful, just know you are going to need some patience. Please don’t be like me and miss the correct turn. This will take you down a long, extremely rough road that requires a car with high clearance. My car had no business being there. If you drive past the correct turn, you will come to the Murhut Falls sign, a good place to turn around before the road gets scary. To avoid my mistake, on the main road after passing the campground and then the horse area, the road will come to a fork. Straight/left takes you down a seemingly endless rough road. The right fork is barely marked with a sign saying 2510-060. This is in fact the correct turn. Take the right road and follow it up 200 feet or so to the trailhead and parking area for 10-12 cars.

Beautiful, mostly wooded trail with just a handful of views as you near the highest elevation. The trailhead parking lot was 70% full on a rainy Sunday morning.

Fantastic short trail to bring the family on. Very rewarding and very easy to complete. Bring snacks to hang out and enjoy the falls when you get there. Very wet but not many bugs.

Beautiful trail! A little of everything! River, mountains, flowers, you get to scramble, and you will have to crawl over some logs that have fallen on the trail round the 5 mile mark. The five mile camp at the river has some smaller pools that our dogs had fun swimming in. Totally recommend this hike! It is around 11.5 miles according to both of our Apple watches. It has some inclines, but wasn’t too bad. Just do it, you won’t regret it!

Very beautiful trail that is a very easy walk. The road to the trail has a lot of potholes, so be careful.

Beautiful trail that’s fairly easy. The base of the falls is very muddy and slippery so be very careful. It is a bit of a scramble as well. The road leading to the trail is not in great condition and has lots of potholes but my friends fiat made it fine.

This hike had a little bit of everything. Good uphill push. Beautiful camp on the river.

Excellent, well maintained trail, relatively quiet on a weekday. LOVELY with the cotton floating in the air, like it's snowing in May/June. Don't forget to look up! Quite a few mosquitoes but fairly easy to avoid.

Beautiful not crowded

Enjoyed this short hike to a beautiful waterfall. Good for family’s and kids of all ages. ( just keep an eye on them once you get closer to the falls) Road to the trail head has a lot of pot holes but is manageable. Parking is on the left and a bit small. Got there around 11am on a weekday and had the trail/ waterfall all to myself. There is a little trail to get to the base of the waterfall. A bit of a scramble but not to bad.

The trails were pretty not a whole lot of trail markers .

Beautiful hike.

There are more trails than shown on here. Also, half the trail was beautiful and the other half a boring fire road. Very busy with lots of people and dogs but easy enough to distance from each other.

Awesome Trail. Beautiful walk enjoying nature.

Excellent trail for kids and dogs on leash. We were able to see a pack of Elk, slugs, newts in the little pond, mushrooms and wild rhododendrons. Must do again!

Easy hike, your feet will get wet, you almost have to cross a little river to stay on the trail, but it is 100% worth it. the waterfall is beautiful and you can get right up close to it. There were lots of rocks for the kids to play on. my kids are 9 and 10 and they did it easily. I did see a family with a stroller and you cant get all the way there with a stroller but they parked it close to the end and it seemed to work out.

This is a good hike that can be done most of the year. As noted by other hikers, there has been a significant slide at about the 5 mile mark. The river was running fast and full, so the blue pools were not there, instead gray.

This was my favorite waterfall so far hiking in the area. It’s a straight up 1000 foot climb, but on an easy path so you can you get it out-of-the-way early. Coming down is easier. The waterfall cascades beautifully between the rocks and the trees in a cut in the canyon. If you choose to do so, you can scramble around on mini trails in and out and around the creeks in the waterfalls. It was a great time!
