    The waterfall at the top of this trail is so worth the challenge and effort! There are lots of large boulders, rocks, tree roots and steep switchbacks, so wear good shoes and bring plenty of water. The views are just gorgeous. This trail is understandably popular, and you will see kids, dogs and bikes along the way. Since it is inhabited by lots of people the parking lot is generally pretty full.

    I hike this canyon regularly with the family, and run it often on my own.. It is one of my favorite local trails and I highly recommend it to all. Make sure to take water, and realize that the last portion is somewhat steep, and a little technical for a newbie, or young one.

    Took the whole family up this trail with our 20 month old in the Kelty pack. This was a great family hike with several very technical areas. The payoff was at the waterfall which was fantastic.

    This trail is gorgeous. The terrain is steep at first but the trek to the waterfall is short and worthwhile. My only complaint is that it has high traffic.

    easy to get to trail head, most of the trail is very well maintained. Gets a bit tricky towards the end near the falls but is well worth the trip. took my 3 daughters 7,9,11 all had a great time.

    The trail was busy on the day I went. A group of seven of us went and hiked back to the waterfall, you will get your feet wet in order to see it but it was a nice hike back to it.
