Easy Peasy

Me and my friend did this hike one Saturday. The drive there was the most difficult because the directions were a bit confusing. It was a beautiful day for a drive so it wasn't a big deal. Once we got there the trail is marked well and very easy. My dog went with us and he loved it, the only thing he really likes is hiking and water so it was great for him. We got to a portion of the trail in which you can (if the water is low) walk and look over the top of the waterfall. The hike took about 20 minutes to get to the bottom of the waterfall, we waded for a while and then hiked back. Very enjoyable and I recommend it for everyone!

Great When There's Water

Beautiful (and easy) hike all along the creek. There are lots of mini falls and a few spots to take a dip, if you're so inclined. If it's dry out, though, the water tends to run low and it isn't quite as exciting (like any river). And know that if there's been some recent rain, the falls will be great but the trail will be muddy. So wear appropriate shoes.
