Me and three of my friends all went hiking this past weekend before the storms hit and it was a super fun trail. We are all seniors in high school, the drive was a bit far but none the less fun. The hike itself wasn't hard just going back and forth across the creek was the most time consuming part. It's windy so dress warmly and in the shade most of the time I would definitely recommend if the drive isn't bad.

We camped at a free sight close to Appache Lake and drove to this hike in the morning, took us about 20 min to get there from the site. Hike was fun, had a lot of rock scrambling, some optional wadding through small pools, plenty of shade, and even found some partial geodes after some persistent searching. There Really probably 4 bolted climbing routes at the beginning of the hike, probably worth trying. Only downfall was that there isn't really a destination and the drive is a little long.

Great hike! But the size of boulders and numerous obstacles can get discouraging. The water is a wonderful treat but we had to stop when we reached boulders the size of cars blocking the trail. We took 2 dogs (heeler) and they had fun but it was stressful when the boulders were too big to jump. Couldn't believe how clear the water was at certain pools.

This was a really fun hike. While trail would be a little generous it was easy to follow the creek. There was no one else down there but it may have been due to the fact that the road to get there can be a little rough. We even say some Coatimundi which was really cool!

I loved it but be prepared to find you own way as there is not really an established trail. You will be doing some rock hopping here and there. Awesome rock formations - low traffic - solitude.

This was a beautiful trail. It is challenging to see where the trail is some of the time. We just followed the creek for a couple of miles.
