A nice little hike and not too steep, to two beautiful sites for pictures but also a really nice swimming hole!

Great place to hike with rolls of all ages. Trails were in decent shape, with some go around needed due to recent damage from weather. Would go back in a heart beat!! 😍

We could not access this waterfall June 12, 2018 due to a landslide. You might want to call before you go to see if access has opened up.

Word of warning: you have to drive over a creek to reach the trailhead. Our SUV cleared it easily but we saw several smaller sedans not risk it and park before the creek to hike up to the official trailhead (about a mile). Leaving the...More

The trail is not too difficult. Plenty of roots and rocks to work around but a pretty clean path. The foliage is awesome. The waterfalls are beautiful. There were people swimming in the blue hole at the bottom of the first waterfall. It is worth...More

I really don’t know what road we were on, so sorry. My son was navigating. We crossed a creek and went up a hillside that was pretty steep. We were there mid May.

The water is about a little above knee height on an adult. There were lots of children around 8-12 swimming
