Camped in the Blue Valley Dispersed Campsites and hiked "up" to access the falls. It was evident most people stop at the main falls, but there is a lot more waterfalls below. Some requires scrambling, recommended only at low levels by experienced bushwhackers.

Included a number of pics of the additional falls. Traffic low, not a lot of trash on trail. It is steep on the way back to the main area, but an enjoyable hike.

This really is an out and back that you can do in like an hour. Now if you climb up the rocks around the falls, it turns a little more challenging, but also a little bit dangerous! Climb with caution.

Short and hot. There wasn't much of a waterfall when we went but there hasn't been much rain in the last week. We had two kids with us, a 5 and an 8 year old, who easily managed. On the hike back out we were drenched in sweat. Bring some water.

Great little starter hike for the young ones. Our group was 6 Adults and 8 kids (ages: 3-9). All had a great time and really enjoyed the falls and a snack on the rocks at the end. The water was just right for rock hopping.

Hard to find is an understatement, but we finally did. Beautiful hike today! I am sure I'll feel it tomorrow. My daughter came with me with her daughter in a backpack. She did very well. Can't wait to bring my husband! The trail is a little rocky in places, but otherwise is in great shape. Thank you to the person who put the rocks in the mud to make that small section passable.

My family and I love this trail!!! It's a quick out and back if you rush, but it's more enjoyable to take your time. Pack a small snack, and if the water is low(er) you can step out on one of the bigger flat top boulders, sit in the sun, and have a nice little picnic. Can sometimes be crowded, but that's what you deal with for being so close to civilization. The pull-off is a little tricky, I almost always miss it even tho we have been there 6+ times. Highly recommended.

an in and out hike with so many other great hikes nearby this is an easy recommendation! try to fit this one in with a few others to boost the intensity and experience! also the trail head starts along a pull off of the ochs hwy. just (uphill) of sanders rd. altogether very nice! sunset rock may be and excellent pairing if you dont have much time but want to see a few things in one trip.

Neat little trail. Really easy hike with opportunities to climb through the creek bed and back into the source stream above the waterfall. Definitely worth it after a big rainfall. On a hot day the canopy provides much cooler temperatures for an enjoyable day.
