Only 2 of us turned up at the starting point for this hike plus one at the arboretum without transport out to the the starting point. In some ways was good to be only 2 as it allowed us to do some exploring of trails we found along the way, and also because the steep trail down to the waterfall was more slippery than we have ever encoun tered, The leader fell once and probably others would have too. The waterfall was full and loud, and the large rocky area where we gather to eat was as comfortable as always. We did find some muddy areas along the dirt road and many noisy motor bikes racing up and down it, but also stopped to enjoy flowers, ferns, caterpillars, and spent some time at a small man-made pond with colorful dragon flies we found while exploring. We made it a very leisurely hike.
