  • Very close to the road. There is bridge and parking over the bridge. Quick stop and photo shoot. Falls itself very small but looks great to view from Road. Didnt make the trail that lead to the falls
  • Gorgeous waterfall! We had water shoes, climbed down and hiked through the water to see it. Spent a while just enjoying the peaceful sounds, got engaged down there too! 💛
  • I wasn't happy with the view so we took off our shoes, emptied out pockets, and went crossed river and made the trek. Difficult to reach falls, but very nice once there. Took about 20 mins for active late 20 year old guys. If adventure and a challenge is your thing, DO IT!
  • Mostly because of no rain I know but not much of a water fall.
  • Get out climb the first water to the second and third. Won't regret it
