The first few miles of the Canyon Falls trail are typical—miles of heavy streambottom forest interspersed with talus and the occasional streamside diversion. The falls themselves do not possess the classic vertical plunge of Niagara Falls but instead feature an impressive 400-foot drop down a polished bedrock sluice.

Enjoyable hike to a pair of medium-sized waterfalls.

Well worth the trip. Because of the untended condition, I wouldn't count it as easy, though. More like pleasantly challenging. Great photo op.
