DO NO PARK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD! YOU WILL GET TOWED! Park in the parking lot area. At the end of the trail are petroglyphs and small waterfalls in early spring.
Really awesome hike for the whole family!
Great for kids lots of fun!
Great hike rain or shine! Great for kids also
Great trail! Kid friendly and dog friendly, went on Presidents' Day trail was little busy earlier in the day. Easy for 90% of the trail towards the end there are some bigger boulders for light climbing.
Went up with my three young girls. There was a steady flow to the waterfall caused by the storm that passed through over the last two days. It did not disappoint.
Nice little Sunday hike. When you have kids they love to climb around the boulders.
I'd call it moderate. One hour each way,. Steady easy grade. See teetering rock on right at trail end.
Trail was easy to complete. Saw young children and dogs walking along with ease. Venturing past the trail about 1 mile was beautiful on a rainy day!
Completed this hike today with our 8 and 11year old. It was a great family hike and took us around 1.5 hours there and back.
Fun trail. Perfect for nonhiker visitors
