Trail is very easy just be prepared to get wet or get your shoes wet. Make sure to take water shoes or extra shoes for later :).

Amazing trails. Basically a there and back kind of hike. You get to the falls and turn back the whole trail. Going across the bridge was just an amazing view. Parking was easy. Make sure you get your feet wet in the waters, crisp and cold can feel nice on a hot day.

Very chill, enjoyable little jaunt. Rather fun strategically hoping from stone to stone across the crippling creek, attempting to stay dry. Respectable, kind patrons. Will certainly be back. Wednesday early afternoon was my time of visit. Happy trails! Dusty

Once the main dirt road trail hits the bridge/creek (just a little over a mile from the trail head), this becomes a really fun hike. With all the recent rains, the creek is really flowing, so plan on getting wet feet. Don't even bother trying to keep your feet dry. Just walk right through the water from the first creek crossing and you'll be a much happier camper then if trying to hop from rock to rock (which are quite slippery, making possible injury or even just falling and getting completely soaked pretty much a given). You have to cross back and forth across the creek so many times that there's no way to avoid you feet in the water, so just embrace and enjoy.

I went on a Sunday at noon and, as expected, it was crowded. Seriously crowded. There's tons of people and tons of dogs, so avoid weekends and the afternoon if you want to be a little more one with nature. The crowd was even worse by the time we headed out around 3 pm. This is why I gave this hike a three star instead of a four.

If there hadn't been about 100 people crowding around the waterfall at the end, it really would have been a nice reward. There's plenty of boulders to sit on and enjoy the view, and even eat a little snack and hang out.

Overall, the hike is easy peasy, even for little kids (I had 12, 10, and 6 year olds with me, and saw plenty of younger kids), and the water element made it more adventurous and fun. The only warning really is all the wet stepping stones and rocks and boulders from the crowds tracking water everywhere. Watch out for poison oak, it's pretty prevalent on the sides of the trail, so I wouldn't recommend any blazing.

Was so much fun today. We had a very wet shower around 10am when we started the hike but within minutes it cleared up. The rocks were not slippery for me nor the muddy trails, which had a lot of sand which made a sturdy path. We crossed the creek about 9 times. With stops and taking loads of pictures along the way, we finished in about 3 hrs tops.
