This is a long drive, best done as part of a day at the coast, and there is just about nothing to this hike. If it weren’t for the suspension bridge it crosses, nobody would ever hike it. But what a bridge! There are a couple of places to hang out by the stream, too . . . but what a bridge!

Relatively easy trail. Nice day hike in a second growth forest. The falls are a lesson in the power of nature. The original face of the cliff that created the falls has fallen away into the creek, creating a new waterfall for all to see and watch as nature changes things over the years to come.
