To reach the falls, visitors can stop in the parking lot at 2501 Roberts Cut-Off Road about 2 miles north of State High- way 183 (River Oaks Boulevard). Head south from the trailhead and walk down the slightly steep hill (watch for mountain bikers) for about a third of a mile to reach the river. Follow the sound of the falls to help guide your way.
