You do have to drive through a shallow creek to get there, but it is doable. After that parking is good and there's a three and a half mile downhill hike to get to the three awesome Falls. Its not terribly steep but coming back...More

A nice little hike and not too steep, to two beautiful sites for pictures but also a really nice swimming hole!

Great place to hike with rolls of all ages. Trails were in decent shape, with some go around needed due to recent damage from weather. Would go back in a heart beat!! 😍

We could not access this waterfall June 12, 2018 due to a landslide. You might want to call before you go to see if access has opened up.

I really don’t know what road we were on, so sorry. My son was navigating. We crossed a creek and went up a hillside that was pretty steep. We were there mid May.
