essay bro:

Park at the Borrego Trail Parking Lot just above Hyde State Park, cross the paved highway and hike one mile up the mountain.  Borrego Trail goes down.  You go up…!!!  There is a trail altho it has no sign.  It is a little steep in places but quite do-able.  You will hear this high, wonderful waterfall down in a deep ravine to your right.  There are unmarked trails that descend to view the falls from straight-on… and there is a faint trail that drops down to the very brink of the cataract.
