I chose this hike b/c: (1) After not doing much serious hiking, we wanted a shorter hike to warm-up with; (2) There's a waterfall; and (3) It's not nearly as known as nearby Grotto & Rainbow Falls, & we're always looking for lesser-known but impressive falls to photograph. Unfortunately for us, recent wind/storms & nearly 2 wks of dry weather left this secluded falls on the aesthetically "wanting" side for our visit. The upper falls was reduced to a ghostly spray due to low flow, and the area below the base was caked in natural debris that just needs a good downpour to wash it out (keep in mind Sept/Oct are the driest mos). Otherwise, the falls themselves are a quiet little oasis in a towering forest. Finding the trailhead and making your way to the falls can be confusing. We took the "lower" or 2nd of 2 entrances: a pulloff on the left just before a bridge that precedes 3 log cabins (Jim Bales place). It's roughly 3-4 miles from the gated entrance to the official Roaring Fork Motorway. A sign for Bales cemetary/Baskins Creek will be there as well. While the trail IS short at 1.5 miles each way, be ready for lots of steep ascents/descents. This means that when you're wearily trekking back, you DON'T get the benefit of a break going downhill on the return. At 1 point, the trail breaks sharply left crossing a small creek, but a 2nd dense path continues following it. Do not take it! We found only bugs and some large paw prints in the mud. Take the left & continue till you reach a trail marker giving miles to either trail end. The dirt path to the right behind this sign is for the falls. Bring lots of water & watch out for bears/warthogs! We saw a young bear on the motorway, warthog burrows on the trail sides, & took a good sprint up a hill b/c of something that was crashing through trees in our direction!
