this was a great hike, well maintained trail, and beautiful flora and fauna. The trail up to the Boy scout tree was not marked and we were able to find it via other hikers on the trail. Its another 20 minutes along the main trail to the waterfall. it is definitely better to go earlier in the morning to avoid the crowds of hikers if you want to have a quiet peaceful journey through these groves!

Nice easy hike, beautiful scenery, but terrible signage! The actual Boyscout Tree is very easy to miss. There's a small turnoff near the end of the trail on the right, and just up that hill is the Boyscout Tree. Make sure you continue on to the end of the trail to see the falls though!
