This "Easy" rating is ludicrous. This is not a difficult hike, but it's by no means easy. The trail is unique in that some portions look and feel like your in AZ while others are more tropical. The first half of the loop is just FUN! Lots of creek crossings and small cascades. There's only 1 Waterfall. The latter half of the loop is a bit beige and nondescript. Overall, it was a fun hike!
Beautiful views and absolutely great for anyone wanting to get some trail running or hiking. There were many "technical" spots that weren't ideal for running, but the waterfalls and scenic views of the mountain definitely made up for it! We will go back many more times I'm sure.
good hike. difficult in some areas but not to rough. beautiful water falls, crystal clear streams, some cool bridges to cross, and alot of different eco systems in this trail. i was able to complete the hike in about 3.5 hours. $5 to park for the day. give this trail a shot. you will enjoy it!
