  • Pretty during the day, magical at night!
  • Stopped by there while on the way to Diablo lake. There was a tour going on and I kind of just walked into it. Everyone was polite and I didn't see the falls with the lights on but I will be going back soon and will post an update after I do.
  • I love visiting this place and have taken dozens of photographs over the last 22 years.It is a fun place to stop over.
  • Shady walk through the woods to a picturesque waterfall. Lovely spot to do some exploring - lots of trails leading in different directions, but contained enough that you won't get lost.
  • I visited the Ladder Creek Trail and it is a nice loop around walk. You can walk through the forest on the trail to the Ladder Creek Waterfall. Just about anyone can walk on the easy trail.
