Going to the waterfall was uphill most of the way but when you come back, you'll be glad it was! It was a beautiful site to see! I went down the rocks, closer to the waterfall and could feel the mist!! It was amazing!! Also on the way there, there was a beautiful spot with a rock where you can jump off! Overall, I'm going back!

Super fun trail, be sure you take the trail on the right of the river and not the steep one on the left. My girlfriend and I are not experienced hikers at all and we were able to make it to the dam and back no problem.
There is a slight elevation gain getting there but that just makes the walk back easier. No climbing needed unless you go down closer to the dam. Otherwise it's a fun mostly shaded hike in a beautiful area and awesome views of the bridge. One of our favorites.
