It's a moderate hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end, well worth the effort! Might be crowded so go early. Good shoes will help with rocks and roots on the trail. 5 miles roundtrip. Bathrooms at the trailhead.

This is a moderate to strenuous hike. Not Paved. Travels next to a stream and was nice to check it out at spots. Plan on around 4 hours to do this trail. The Falls are big and nice for the area.

Give your self time to hike this trail. You go up and down the hills about 4 times. Not a hard trail, but can wear you out. The trail does follow a creek for awhile. The trail does have some nice scenery. Because in some...More
