  • Lovely short hike to a stunning waterfall. Path is very worn and sketchy in spots. There is a rope there now to help with the worse spot. Can walk behind the falls and even to the top edge.  more »
  • Wear good hiking shoes or dont go down the hill. It had rained prior to our visit and was very slippery.  more »

  • Nice, but rather slippery and not much water.
  • Definitely top 10 to see in area
  • Beautiful, worth the drive
  • This one was a rough trail and a bit steep but the falls were incredible!
  • I’ve visited at least 70-80 waterfalls in the past few years and this is by far one of the most beautiful. Very short 0.1 hike from the parking lot/pull off, though the last 200ft requires good shoes as the trail descends sideways down a steep and slippery hill to the falls. Amazing spot for photography especially at sunset.
