This is a wonderful hike and you are going to enjoy the different trail systems that the trail offers. Bring your friends, family, male or female to join you on the fun hike.
This is an easy hike 2.5 miles to the falls one way for a total of 5.2 miles. The hike goes along a beautiful cascading mountain stream with a few smaller falls along the way. It can be easily done in 2 hours but go slow and stop along the stream and enjoy. Nice parking area at the trail head with toilets. Not much elevation change. This has a few ups and downs but it is easy and never overgrown. Always other people on this trail and in the shade all the way. The cliffs and waterfall at the end have lots of good places to stop and eat.
Please bring snacks to eat on the trail but also a lunch to eat at the falls. Also remember to bring at least 2 liter of waters, sunscreen, hiking poles and wear proper hiking shoes or boots.
Here is a great video to give you a look at what you will see.
