Sweet baby waterfall

This is a great little hike! And during the right time of year (or after a good rain) the falls can be quite impressive. I've been there in July though when it was barely a trickle. You're never far from the resort on this hike, and if I remember correctly you have to cross over a service road. But, for a one-water-bottle hike, it's totally worth it.
