This trail is tough at first, with steep switchbacks up a sandy trail. It's desert terrain for the first 20 minutes to half hour. Then you enter the canyon, and the view is gorgeous. I loved being in the forest and hearing the river below....More

This was a great hike, but in some areas found it a little difficult, some parts of the trail were washed away and left very small areas to walk without falling off the side. I would have given this a 5, but the rude people...More

Just a short hike through beautiful hilly surroundings.There are three separate waterfalls,obviously going up.So it doesn't matter how far up your endurance allows,either one or all three are beautiful.
