It is a good difficult hike of about 2.5 miles each way to the fall Takes about 3 to four hours It is strenuous but once you reach the Falls you get disappointed Enjoy the hike but don't expect too much in a water fall

This is a 2.5 mile hike to the falls where you can cool off and swim before you hike 2.5 miles back. It is a moderately difficult hike. Be sure to bring water and snacks!

This hike tool us about 3 hours or so to go to the falls and back. The trail says it's strenuous but I didn't think it was that bad. The terrain goes up and down a lot and there are rocks and tree roots everywhere....More
