It was slow going getting to the falls. The trail was totally covered with leaves making it difficult to follow. The tree makings guided us there. The fall was beautiful but not nearly as beautiful as Doane's Falls which we went to just prior.

We never thought this hidden gem would be so beautiful! It was! We loved everything about this exsperience! The sights, sounds and even the smell of the air! Breathe deep!

A fairly difficult trail down to the falls, well worth it if you are able to hike the trail. Took us about an hour and fifteen minutes. Bring water. Gorgeous views of the falls. A must if you are in the area.

Read some sites where this is considered a moderate hike. I feel that this is a false representation. After leaving the parking lot (where we did not take a photo of the map, bad decision) we walked up and down hills for quite some time....More

This is a fairly short but somewhat challenging hike. Start at the parking area on RT 32 (Not far north of the road that leads to Tully Lake Campground). You hike down into a ravine and back up again. Wife and I loved the falls...More

Went to see the falls. The map out front at the trail head was very faded and it appeared that there was a trail loop presumably to the falls and back. We followed the Tully Trail which was yellow painted dots on trees. The trails...More
