  • Been on this trail 3 times. Pretty easy hike, great places to picnic at the falls. Trail is always a little different and always fun with kids and teens
  • Great hike! Took us about 1 hour 40 minutes to go out and back. About 1.5 mile trail (3 miles total trip). The falls are beautiful. There will be more water if it has rained recently. The trail is not difficult and would be fine for kids. We took our dog and saw several dogs on the trail.
  • Great hike. Not to hard. Beautiful waterfall. Great for a family get away!
  • Easy go to hike. Pretty short 1.5 in and 1.5 out..... Great waterfall at the end you can hike to the top.
  • (11/11/2016) nice hike - not too strenuous - we had some smoke from the wildfires this day, but still managed just fine -- falls look really good in the springtime with more water flowing -- well worth it anytime!
