Drove about 12m of logging roads to get there, but it was worth it and a fun place to have lunch and hang out for a while. Some brace kids were swimming under the falls but it wasn't quite hot out enough for us. You...More

Perfect short hike and beautiful view!! The falls are a little hard to find, they could direct you better, but then it wouldn't be a hidden gem, now would it?! Very happy we took this adventure.

It's a short walk through the woods, a bit hilly on your way out but very much a doable hike at some places there are steps and you can always take a break. Some people actually swim in the pool. It's a beautiful waterfall to...More

A bit difficult to find but well worth it. From the main road look for the wooden sign that says Garfield falls (about 10 miles in) and continue down that road. And actually our GPS said Garfield falls road. So follow that road and a...More
