Description

Added by Kelsey Nelson

Pleasant hike through a green valley that ends at a 50 foot waterfall.

This 8 mile (out and back) hike begins at the trail head off of Knoxville Road, just before mile marker 24. The first 3 miles are relatively flat, though you will cross the creek about 9 times. Right before you reach the waterfall, you will come to a fork in the trail marked by a pink boulder. Stay left to view the falls from below or go right for a short incline hike to see the falls from afar.

Reviews

The drive to the start of this hike was defiantly really deep pass lake berryessa, a curvy drive. Didn’t make it all the way to the waterfall due to the time we arrived and wanting to make it back to the car before dark. Although we passed through all the creeks I believe. Went in the middle of March and only saw two other lady’s hiking. I’d defiantly recommend going early in the morning so you can get all the way through, and be sure to bring snacks and water! There are ways to get around the creeks without getting your feet wet also. We went to the right side when we met the fork in the road and it was for sure a hike with incline but worth it with the beautiful views, can’t wait to go back and complete it, for the first part of the hike it’s mostly flat but don’t let that fool you! . It says it’ll take about 3 hrs to go one way, when we took the right trail! Such a beauty!!!

On this trail always follow the paths to the right, my friend and i almost got lost following the paths on the left side

Awesome, mild hike for a killer waterfall!
