The trail follows the old forest road that begins from the outside of the switchback curve. It crosses a couple of dirt mounds, then forks. Go left and follow Moses Creek upstream. You’ll pass a scenic cascade at 0.2 mile. At 0.4 mile, the road fords the creek, which is easy to rockhop in normal flows but tricky after a rain. Soon after the crossing, you’ll start climbing fairly steeply and pass a couple of scenic small waterfalls. At 0.8 mile from the crossing, you’ll cross West Fork Moses Creek, an easy rockhop. A few yards beyond the crossing is a side path on the left. This path leads about 0.1 mile to the base of the falls.
The easiest way to reach the top of the falls is to continue on the main road, following what is now East Fork Moses Creek, heading upstream. At about 0.2 mile from the West Fork crossing, the road makes a sharp left switchback and leaves East Fork. It then climbs moderately alongside West Fork and reaches the top of the falls about 0.3 mile from the switchback.
