Go North, Not South

I intended to do this hike yesterday and ended up doing a much different hike. It was still lovely but no waterfalls. Here's the key. At the trailhead you can go either north or south on the trail. Go north for the waterfall.

Very Calm

Really nice trail. Nothing crazy. Followed the blue markers with my dog though I do think if the water was higher he might have some trouble jumping the rocks at the start.

Nice

Not much water to see but we did go in March,if you take the blue path it's remotely easier,but after a little bit of blue we went to yellow and omg it was though but great we did at least 5 miles rocks water very nicely did take us 4 hours with a few rest stops ,great place.
