The "hiking trail" is a pathway through the woods, up and down hills and over or under trees across it. Not for the handicap person. It is a beautiful stretch of scenery and if you make it to the falls it makes it worth it.

This hike takes about 50min, and is quite beautiful. Lots of photo ops. The last half is too uneven for our small elderly dog. I suggest bug spray!... and close toed shoes.

Great trail and lovely waterfall! Never knew the place existed until recently. Very nice place to hang a hammock and listen to the sounds of the waterfall.

The trails are beautiful - hike up to the waterfall without needing any special equipment or hiking shoes. The fallen trees and creek make beautiful photo spots.
