It is kind of a long walk to see a small set of falls. Very easy trail without any large hills but not a very big waterfall at the end

Haven't been there in several years so not sure if the trails have been kept up but this was once a wonderful hike. The falls at the end make it a very rewarding hike too. Not too strenuous and very shady.

Tried to use the trail and saw closed sign. Stopped at the Geogical museum on July 3rd and was told it was due to wash outs from spring storms. To bad, it looked like a good short hike to a nice looking falls.
