“Don't miss the giant waterfall at the end! We almost did!”
Reviewed 10 August 2010

Comet Falls is a 300-ft tall waterfall, but there is a beautiful three-step waterfall right before it. There's a sign that says "Comet Falls 200 feet" right before you get to the three-step waterfall, so we figured that had to be Comet Falls. But, we were wrong. We almost headed back without seeing the real Comet Falls. A nice couple stopped us and our two daughters to point us in the right direction. After you cross the timber across the stream, head on the trail uphill right in front of you and you'll come to the vista of Comet Falls in just a few steps. You can walk much closer and standing on the ledge near Comet Falls feels like standing near a helicopter taking off, with so much downdraft and mist from the waterfall. It was almost hard to stand up. We loved this hike with our 10 and 12-year-old daughters. It is long, 4 miles round-trip and somewhat steep in places, but you'll really be amazed at the end.
