  • We were looking for something to do before our flight left and we only had the morning. THis hike was perfect! It was a 30 minute hike through some slippery terrain, but the many tree roots help keep ...  more »
  • Ok so here’s the deal. Find a spot and try not to slip and die in the mud. The first falls is nice. It’s not a huge falls but it’s beautiful. You can enter the water here. Be warned getting back up re...  more »
  • The trailhead was a little hard to find. Its in a residential neighborhood, you park on the street and look for a small trail that's hard to see if you're not really looking hard. The trail itself was...  more »

  • This hidden gem was amazing. You park on the street and go down a dirt trail. It's easy to miss from the road. Bring bug repellent! We got eaten alive. Keep hiking after the first waterfall. It's worth it. The hike itself is almost as breathtaking as the waterfalls.
  • I love that this hike was not touristy at all! There isn’t much parking-you just park on the side of the street. The trail head is right next to someone’s home. The path is extremely muddy. We did this hike with an 8 month old baby and a two year old, so it’s definitely doable If you have kiddos. There were a couple of steep parts that were a little challenging with the mud and carrying a baby, but not too bad. The trail is mostly flat- just get ready to Get muddy and be prepared to climb under/over fallen trees/branches. We did get eaten by mosquitoes,but we didn’t notice until a few hours after the hike.
  • Fast hike. Big reward. Jump. Relax. Look.
  • Beautiful 2 mile hike through the trees to two sets of waterfalls. Trail is damp and muddy so be prepared. Rope swing at the end of the second waterfall if you want to jump in and swim.
  • Google maps takes you to private property but please observe the no trespassing signs. The trail entrance is probably 200 yard before private property. There is a clearing along the side of the road for parking. The owner is very nice but please do not trespass on his land. People have ignored his no trespassing signs and then pepper sprayed his dog on several occasions on his own land and that should never have happened. Google needs to recheck their maps and correct the error. Please respect the private property and enjoy the hike from the correct trailhead. I included a photo of the trail entrance. Now, getting to the waterfall is a easy hike and jumping off the falls into the pool at the bottom is must. Definitely worth the trip. Had a great time.
