A new trail to a lovely, narrow, woodland waterfall rewards photographers and families with exquisite beauty. In spring native rhododendrons bloom along the trail, which apparently was once a logging road. At the waterfall children will love watching the water spill over the top of the highest ledge, drop, then level off in a plunge pool, and then hurtle down again. On a hot day the cool breeze, shade, and spray will cool you. Hold onto children’s hands here.

This is a brilliant hike for children and adults. Once you get to the falls you can actually swim in the pool, picnic around the base & explore. We had a great time with a 15, 5 and 3 year old.

I was surprised to see that the trail narrowed significantly with a steep drop off considering it was rated easy for kids. Towards the falls the trail is single file only, not the way you want to go with kids on a slippery trail.
