Need to Know

Waterproof high top boots are necessary if you want to cross the marsh before the WWII tank. Gloves would be helpful for preventing rope burn on the decent to the falls. Much of the trail is exposed, bring sunscreen and plenty of water. Parts of the trail will be extremely slick and muddy after a rain.

Description

Trail starts near the gate to the Leo Place resort, free parking is available along the road next to the trailhead. The trail is marked by pink streamers tied to trees along the route. The first 1.3 miles are on doubletrack 4x4 trails. There are spots where there is standing water and significant mud, but you can usually choose and alternate route where it is dry enough to stay comfortable in non-waterproof shoes.

At 1.3 miles, the marked and mapped trail crosses a small march with 6+ inches of mud and standing water. If you have waterproof high top boots, you can likely find a place to comfortably cross. If not, it is recommended that you take the Lower Sigua Falls Marsh Bypass trail to follow a dryer 4x4 trail around the marsh.

After the marsh, you'll climb a small hill to an abandoned U.S. W.W. II tank that can be explored. A few meters south you can also explore the remains of a U.S. W.W. II LVT landing craft. From the tank, the trail descends quickly down a slightly slippery singletrack to a shallow creek crossing at 1.8 miles. At 1.9 miles there is a additional deeper creek crossing that requires walking across a log with a rope tied across the creek to help you keep your balance.

At 2.25 miles, there is a great view of the top of the falls to the right, and the trail begins a steep, slippery decent to the base of the falls. There are ropes available for the entire descent to assist, but there are multiple 3-5 foot drops you have to slide or jump down.

At the end of the descent there is a small pool that can be waded or swam in, and phenomenal view of the falls. If you follow the Little Sigua Falls Extension along the creek, there is another, more secluded set of falls.
