“A great trail with a waterfall and fantastic views.”— Tom Wolfe
When heading into the canyon, stay to the right, following the singletrack which drops down to the creek and keeps following the creek all the way to the waterfall. The terrain gets more rugged as you continue, with many rocks and roots. The trail then crosses the creek and runs through a campground as it continues to climb.
There is a scramble across a flat rock section which heads into the most technical part of the trail with about a quarter of a mile left before the waterfall. This last part can be very tricky and steep, just keep moving along the trail until you get to the last crossing of the creek just below the waterfall and you are there. Enjoy the view and refuel for the return trip, back the way you just came up.
The trail does extend beyond the waterfall, but most turn around at that viewpoint.
