Description

This trail is a singletrack climb. Expect several switchbacks during the ascent, which provide some nice respite.

You'll come across several shaded areas that offer a variety of plant life such as oaks, cottonwoods, redbuds, and dogwoods. There are normally several small creek crossings, but during the 2015 drought the stream crossings are non-existent. Be careful, as there are lots of rocks and overgrown vegetation on the trail.

In its most simple form, this route is an out-and-back for about 3.5 miles one way (7 miles overall). Expect an elevation gain of 1470 feet to the falls. Once you arrived at the falls be careful as the rocks can be slippery.
