Not an easy summer trail due to heat - but completely worth it! A moderately difficult trail with 2 awesome water falls. At 1.5 miles you reach Rainbow falls that you can walk down to. Keep going along the main trail and you can easily rock hop to the top of Rainbow Falls. Go another 1/4 mile to reach Turtleback falls. We had a blast sliding down Turtleback falls with lots of other people. Bring a swimsuit, a towel and a lunch to make a day of it!

Trails are well marked and maintained. Parking was limited at the top of the trail head though.

Went right after it rained and fell more than on a downhill slope , very steep trail but well worth the hassle for the view.
