“A short, popular trail to a very beautiful waterfall.”— Karl W
The trail heads west and drops down to the creek, which it crosses on a nice log bridge. Thereafter, the trail slowly and steadily gains elevation as it follows the creek west. A nice feature of this trail is that it stays close to the creek nearly the whole time. You'll encounter Tamanwas Tie Trail #650B at a large slide area. The trail in this section is very rocky and loose, so be mindful of your footing. There is also a switchback that a lot of runners seem to miss, so keep an eye out for this to make the trail easier.
After a little more elevation, the trail levels off and will arrive at the beautiful waterfall. Enjoy the views but be careful of rocks which can come loose above the trail's end.
