  • It's a nice walk so bring plenty of drinks and munchies. You can never go wrong when it comes to the great outdoors.
  • Hiked this trail before Memorial Day weekend and found it to be correctly rated at moderate. Several steep sections going in both directions, but none are excessively long. Not too many folks on the trail or at the falls. Beautiful large volume falls, even if not a particularly tall one.
  • It's a good but not strenuous hike and a perfect place to swim for a while! This is one of my favorite waterfalls because I can swim in it, jump from it, and it's a gorgeous hike!
  • Great family hike, slightly strenuous, but worth the view. Can be busier than most trails to get there and at the waterfall.
  • Wonderful path of 2.5 miles (go). The landscapes are breathtaking especially in height. We can see some animals. The path is easy to access. The waterfall in it itself is very simple and it really is the trail which is well worth the visit! Can be done with children in forms.
