Didn't make it all the way to the falls, but still a nice hike. On day we went there was plenty of parking at base for your car. Agree with others that first 0.5 mile or so is rather steep but not too bad.

I've done this hike a couple of times and it's a perfect afternoon hike. It starts out with plenty of sunshine and you get sweaty with the switchbacks but eventually gets cooler in the shade. Worth the waterfall at the end, for sure

Awesome hike. In dry conditions it's an easy to moderate to the lower falls. Continue on to upper falls on moderate trail with lots of moderate PLUS stretches. Great scenery, great hike

We went around 9:00 am on a Sunday morning, plenty of parking on the trailhead or along the street. But when we returned at approximately 11:30 there was minimal parking. The hike seems to be just over 4 miles, and it took us approximately 2...More

This trail is amazing if you go with adult friends but I would leave the kids and older folks at home. One of my good friends died hiking it and I go up all the time to remember them. In the winter bring good shoes...More

This hike sucks in the begging about 400 yards of steep sand switchbacks feels like you go a foot for every 5 steps. After that its pretty awesome. Great views beautiful stream and several waterfalls. Going down the switchbacks at the end will put a...More

The trail never closes. Snow and ice are present in winter and especially in the shaded areas of the canyon on shoulder months. Be smart about how far you go with the gear you have. It is often easier to climb up... More
