Easy to Moderate hike.
Great for dogs and well kept. There is no real end point, just a stream. It is long, but good workout. Just about anyone can do it.
Lots of good photo options.
Great hike but give yourself time to hike it in and out.
Moderate trail, just be careful with loose rock, wear appropriate shoes. Trail is not too long, elevation is also not steep. I started at 1pm and finish at 5:20pm, including time to break and taking some pictures. The view is beautiful and worth.
Perfect hike that doesn't take all day, and has great views. Easy access with parking across the street.
