  • First, I think this trip is harder than listed and more moderate than easy. I also think it was longer than listed as my Fitbit clocked about 4.5 miles. Second, I grew up hiking with my parents...  more »

  • We took a different trail than planned since the GPS went in and out, causing us to pass our desired trail head. While it was cool to see the cemetery and the waterfall was awesome, it was a good 4 miles total on some intense trails. We almost gave up a few times but decided to push on. Totally burned off all the fudge we had eaten on the trip to that point lol. Definitely a good waterfall to go see. It's up there with the Grotto falls in my opinion, just a bit more of an advanced trail.
  • Well worth the hike in. We had the falls and trail all to ourselves. 1.5 hours total hiking time with a 30 minute break at the falls. Happy to say my 71 year old pops made it with no problem.
