... Creek. As we got near to the waterfall, it became even more steep , heading up via switchbacks, then down just as steeply to a spot where we had to rock-hop across Burnthouse Branch.

In about a half-mile from the forest road, we saw the pile of rocks and arrow and started making our way down towards the waterfalls. He wasn’t kidding that this trail was steep. We slowly made our way down, holding on to the many rhododendron along this “trail” to help us get down. ...
