Reviews

Not only is this a beautiful, easy hike to the falls you see in this picture but there are three more falls and miles of views from a cliff. While driving on the dirt road you can begin to feel like you are on the wrong path. It is a logging road and there is no parking fee as well as an outhouse at the parking spot-small about for three cars-but no one else is out here.
