Falls in Love
Jul 2021 • Couples
Scenic hike that is way easier going down than coming up. The water level was really high so the falls were full & flowing. Take a bottle of water or two & some good hiking shoes.

Beautiful

I love this place. Unlike Bald River Falls there’s very little traffic or people. Nice place to bring lunch and your dog in hot humid August! Be careful walking. I broke my wrist soon after coming out of this fall ouch! This photo was taken in 2015. RIP Cowboy!

Very good trail, but challenging.
Nov 2020 • Couples
Ok, I want to let you know this is a very good trail but it is challenging on the was up, it is a gradual decline down all the way down the trail, it can be dangerous in some areas so be careful. The waterfall itself is awesome and well worth the hike. Some very inconsiderate people have thrown trash around the parking area which is unfortunate. Be advised the 3 miles up to the trailhead is a bit rough and its recommended to use a high vehicle, a low car may drag. With all said, it's worth the time to go for a hike to see a great waterfall.

Beautiful fall day

The road was sketchy at best in spots but it was beautiful in the fall. Trail is easy until the end then watch out for the roots and rocks. A beautiful waterfall for sure.

Awesome trip with my wife and daughters!
Oct 2020 • Family
The road in is a little rough, but manageable. There are pull offs on the road sides that allow passing on the one lane. People that don't know how to drive mountain roads need to avoid this drive or piggyback with an experienced driver. Not for the faint of heart.
TURN RIGHT AT THE FORK.
Once you arrive at the trail head, try to park like you have sense. Don't hod the lot, it isn't large.
The trail is a couple of downhill switchbacks, lots of roots and rocks so be careful. Good shoes or boots are recommended. Leave the cooler in the car and take a bottle of water instead. It's a good haul out.

Ok, summary.
The trip to the trail head is a lot of fun to drive with some pucker factor. Take your time, enjoy the drive.
The trail is well maintained and you can catch a few great views through the trees. Keep going until you are below the falls, the first access is not the falls access. Keep going to the stone steps.
The falls are beautiful. The rocks can be slick, but that is to be expected. Take your time and enjoy what God has hidden for those that seek it.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take your trash out.
I will pick up trash on a trail all day, but i draw a line at diapers and old clothes.
If you can't respect the place and leave it as found or better than you find it, don't go.

My wife, my 2 daughters, (9 & 15), and myself had very little problem making this trip.

Great hiking adventure
Jul 2020 • Couples
The hiking to the falls was about 30 minutes and it was relatively easy if you are in good health conditions and can handle a few hikes up rocks and over tree roots and branches. The falls were beautiful and the water clear and very cold. We had a blast in the water and then hiked back to the car. Once you are back in your car, If you have a Jeep or a similar high car you can take the alternative exit instead of returning through the same road you drove in and have a super exiting adventure through rough roads and several creeks... but do not go that way with a regular car or you’ll be sorry.

Nice little waterfall, the drive in is quite a trip
May 2020
We were driving through and saw the sign that said "Falls 3 miles" so decided to check it out. For the love of god please know that the road going to the falls seems ok at first, but just keeps getting worse and worse. As a flatlander I was terrified. At one point the road was mostly washed out, but there was no place to turn back and I sure as hell wasn't going to back up through switchbacks, so I gunned it over the washout and was thankful I didn't pop any tires.

At one point the road leans. Your uphill tires are up and your downhill tires are down and you feel like you are going to tip over and plummet to your death.

Blind corners, one lane road. Poor signage (turn right at the intersection). Small parking lot where people have no regard for conserving space.

The walk was something else. I quite enjoyed it but did not know to take some water. Kids made it better than the adults. Just keep in mind that once you go in, it is all uphill on the way out. Make sure you are in adequate health before you attempt this.

The waterfalls are nice. When you think you are at the falls, you really aren't. Go around the tree and the path continues. You haven't made it until you are at the rock steps.

4* because it was an adventure and I survived. Though while at the falls, I thought to myself, "at least I got to see a nice waterfall before dying on the drive back down"

I did not die. I will not be returning though.

Moderate hike but be prepared
Jul 2019 • Friends
The view at the end is worth it. Be prepared with sturdy shoes. Downhill is okay but killer steep on the way back. I would recommend going in the spring. It was so hot in July. Drive is very bumpy to the falls. A few picnic tables before you go downhill. Not suitable for kids or anyone with physical limitations. I will return the view is stunning.

Loved this hike!
Aug 2019
The drive up the parking area was very rutted, but passable. Hike was not difficult, nice meandering trail and not too long. Last bit was pretty steep but opened up in to the most amazing small falls, with hardley anyone else around!
