We picked probably the most perfect day and weather for this hike. The sky was clear, sunny, and blue. And the vegetation and flowers were lush, green, and in full bloom. The falls were at their fullest, due to so much recent heavy rain.
The trail was well maintained, and easy to follow in all but a few spots where it crosses the stream. The gorgeous trees keep the trail very well shaded for the majority of the hike.
This is a great hike to do with kids, and the bumpy 5 mile dirt road out to the trail head adds to the fun and adventure (go slow, high clearance vehicles are best).
Count on getting your shoes wet when the stream is full.
