Be sure to take water and stop often to enjoy the sights. The trail is up and down often. It will wear you out if you go to fast. The waterfall and pool at the bottom is awesome.

Falls were rocking after recent heavy rains. There are three decent up and down parts of the hike. There are a few rocky and rooty parts also. Several spots on the trail are easy though. Cool little day hike!
