It was a nice spot to go to. I went in the month of 12/31/17 and thought it was a nice drive to get there as well. You’ll cross over 3 little creeks and get to the fall. It’s a short walk. Round trip 2 hrs or so. It’s on a campsite, so at this time of year it’s closed, so you can bring your dog.

We hit this on a Sunday morning in November. It was about 45 degrees and and leaves had fallen. We had the trail to ourselves. It was a nice gentle hike at first ending in a few steep climbs but nothing some 50 yr olds couldn't handle. The falls were beautiful and we were able to photograph the sun rising in the apex of the falls. Overall a great beginner hike.

This is not a very long hike but it provides some wonderful scenery. The leaves in the fall are beautiful and the waterfall is wonderful. Sat beside it for almost an hour and just enjoyed the sound of the water crashing down. Not very crowded.

Really beautiful hike, not exactly much of a mountain view anywhere but the waterfall towards the end of the trail is literally breathtaking. The trail is actually a fantastic length, it takes around 30 minutes up and a little less on the way down if you're moving at casual pace. Make sure you bring water shoes or a change of shoes, as you do have to cross water multiple times, and slipping in and having wet socks for the rest of the hike is not great.

As mentioned below, it is on private property so it can only be accessed when camps are not in session (you can check their website for the schedule). Short hike to the waterfall with multiple creek crossings so bring water shoes in the summer! Great after some good rainfall.

This waterfall is located on private property. They do allow access, but you need to sign in at the parking lot. Access is restricted when summer and winter camps are going on, so check with them before you visit. The hike is short and sweet, and the falls have a nice 40+ foot drop.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
