Beautiful waterfall, good in all seasons. Swimmable in summer.

Short but very steep narrow trail with poison oak. There's a rope segment and a cable segment, but these are to make things easier for you -- would be dangerous without them but is okay with them.

There's supposedly two more waterfalls downstream, but there's no trail and the slopes get dangerously extreme so they may only be accessible if the water level is extremly low.

Park just before the bridge in the small turnout. Trail is right there starting from parking spot heading down opposite direction from bridge. There's only room for a couple of cars but there's usually nobody there.
