  • This is a great beginner hike at the beginning of spring when the snow starts to melt. Nice to eat a sandwich and watch the falls while soaking up some vitamin D!  more »
  • This was an awesome trail that I would recommend to anyone wanting to get away. I would have given it 5 stars but signs were hard to follow.  more »
  • Relatively short hike to a waterfall, but at relatively high altitude and on trails with lots of exposed roots and inclined granite. Walk carefully to avoid tripping, slipping, and injuring yourself. But the waterfall is worth the hike.
  • Beautiful hike and countryside! Intermediate to difficult until the base of the falls, more difficult to get to the top of the falls. Hard to find the trails, but keep going upward and you will get there. Fun challenge
