If you want to break your ankle, or worse, go ahead and wear flip flops. Sturdy shoes, water and be prepared for loads of mosquitos. Very busy trail. Uphill. A local recommended rain boots to us and these were perfect for wading through the very cold water to the falls. The road up is rutted and very bumpy. Not suitable... 更多
It was worth the cold and rocky stream up to view. Breath taking scenery and views from the top. The waterfall was pure bliss, set into a cavern like falls. But the view of the sand dunes, with the mountains in the background was spectacular. The road up is a little bumpy so be careful.
Holy moly, people were not kidding about the roughness of the road. It was an extremely slow, tense drive in our Honda Odyssey, and we crossed our fingers that we weren't doing permanent damage to the car. There are stall bathrooms at the parking area and benches along the trail, which is moderately difficult in terms of slope and very... 更多
Cover your self in bug spray. Mosquitos in large swarms the entire hike to the falls. I recommend strapped sandals because you have to walk through the creek to get to the falls. The water is freezing!! But the walk is not to deep or to long.
We enjoyed the hike and the view of the Dunes and Valley. The mosquitos were abundant and hungry when we got to the river. We found that it was impossible to see the Falls without hiking the last bit in the river. We were not prepared shoe-wise to do that.
The road up to the falls was a wreck. Super bumpy and washed out! The hike to the falls wasn't too difficult until you got to the creek. You have to climb on rocks to get to the falls. Not too easy for the old or too young.
The Falls are 2.5 miles in the opposite direction from the Sand Dunes and then about a 10ish minute drive to the site on the heavily worn out gravel road. Take it slow! The hike to the Falls is pretty quick and easy, but once you're to the water, it's easiest/safest to walk through the water. It's COLD, so prepare... 更多
Getting here is the trick. You'll see a sign that says "Rough Road" when you get to the 3.5 mile road that will take you to the waterfalls. "Rough Road" is an understatement. Despite traveling between 5-10 MPH during the drive to the falls, I still had two flat tires by the time I had returned to the pavement. Definitely... 更多
It will be fun for family to take a little break from the sand and hike up to the Fall. Beaware the road to the parking lot of Fall is unpaved, so pretty much 5 to 10 miles speed with rocking motion all the way up. From the parking lot to the fall, the hiking trail is considered easy, not... 更多
