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.

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.
