Tenaja Falls reviews
The hike is secluded and beautiful. It isn't too long, only about a half a mile or so. Consider going within a few days of rain. There were many flowers in bloom at the time. This is a great hike..... more »

Love this trail. Make sure to buy an adventure pass $5 for daily use at big-five or a sporting store before you go as it is a permit required area of Cleveland national forest. Do not take 420 as it is federal land. Please keep the trails clean and pack out you stuff as it is a great place for a picnic. Drive up is on a narrow road so take it slow and keep your headlights on.
Unspoiled natural beauty abounds reaching Tenaja Falls! Was a tad rough making it to the top but it was well worth every step. Crossing the creek was interesting. You can wade through or cross on rocks holding onto a loose rope. Helps to have friends to help hold it tight! Cool water on a hot day feels great if you slip and fall in! Views going up and from the top are breath taking. So much beauty surrounds you at every twist and turn. There are many places to take a break and enjoy a picnic. Surprisingly clean with all the people that go here. The road is winding and narrow much of the time. It's a good idea to take the curves slowly in case a car is coming from the opposite direction. Courtesy and safety is more important that rushing on this road!
