Before I start I have to say this is a difficult hike. There is plenty of parking. There are no restroom facilities. The first part of the hike is on switch backs. You climb maybe a hundred feet or so. Then it levels out a...More

I read some reviews, so I knew it was going to be a challenge. I'm not much of a hiker, so I packed lots of water, told someone where I was going, and set off. What I didn't expect was that the switchbacks in the...More

Although this hike has some difficult spots my kids were all able to make it to the waterfall. It is a beautiful hike and the waterfall at the top is gorgeous too.

The trail is steep. The rock on the sides of the canyon makes the hike atmospheric. At the end of the trail is a waterfall, which flows all year.

Steep hike. It took us 4 hours. We are in our 20’s and 30’s. Most of it is shaded. I think it was pretty hard. I would never try this in the snow. I think it would be treacherous. Lots of doggies on the trail....More
