This hike is lovely. The trail is in great shape with a gradual uphill. Most of it is through trees and is nice on its own. The waterfall is nice, it still has water at the beginning of April 2017 but isn't a huge flow....More

Short hike to the falls...but since I went in August, there was not much water. The campground host was very helpful and nice to talk to.

We took a picnic and sat beside the stream below the falls. We greeted and visited with other hikers at the falls while we soaked up the negative ions. There is a small hidden pool just above head level and a little cave behind the...More
