It is quite a hike, but totally worth it! The falls are beautiful! If you’re in the area and able to walk down and up a mountain, it’s definitely worth a visit!

The trail head is quite difficult to find. We actually missed the "parking area" because the sign is rotting and peeling off its post. We had to turn around to come back to it. I can't imagine any more than 2 cars fitting in the...More

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!! 😍

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.
