Comet Falls Trail  3.8 miles round trip, 900 feet elevation gain, and well worth the effort.  The hike starts from the roadside trailhead about half way between Paradise and Longmire.  Parking is at a premium so beware.  You may want to get there early.  The...More

The 1.9 mile hike to Comet Falls is steep but worth the effort. The falls are just fabulous and you can take a side spur to get safely close enough to get very wet! We made the 1.0 mile added hike to Van Trump Park...More

The climb is steep and so me of the trail is Sandy and slippery. But the view of the waterfall is awesome. You can take this hike a bit further and enjoy either Mildred point and/or Van Trump hikes, which are challenging. But also lovely.
