This makes for a nice short hike. It is about 1/2 mile out to the waterfall, and another 1/2 mile back. Fairly good trail, with some steps up and down and a few places with some short wooden poles on the ground to step across some wet spots. Lots of laurel bushes. A nice small wooden bridge at the creek crossing at the beginning.
Nice Waterfall. Trail is moderately difficult with rocks, tree roots, stumps and some fallen trees. Hike about 1/2 Mile. (About 1 KM), from Trailhead to the Falls. During warmer days recommend taking a dip in the pool at the base of the Falls. If you have children bring a Tube so you can float and enjoy the scenary.
