  • Short hike around 2 miles one way to a waterfall. Its a forest hike until near the waterfall there are a couple of lookout points. Great for children... the sides of the trail are not steep and they will enjoy the log bridge crossings. I would call it moderate for difficulty level.
  • We saw the waterfall after it had rained for 2 days straight so it was really flowing heavily. Beautiful place to sit down and take a break.
  • Great hike!
