Great views, went a little off trail onto mesa trail to add a couple miles. Nice trails with cool info marks, stairs and markings. Will be coming back again!

We took our three kids on a hike weaving through the buckeye nature trail to the waterfall. Things are dry right now because of the drought and therefore, no waterfall. However, the dry basin under the area where the water usually falls was very interesting for my children. The nature trail was interesting and gave really cool facts about Native American acorn and buckeye uses. Lots of people with dogs. Great place to hike with dogs and kids. Getting to the waterfall is QUiCK! Not 3 miles. However, you can keep hiking up beyond it.

Good beginner trail. No water , so not as spectacular as it could have been. A few spots got your heart going.

Lupine to Waterfall to Mesa back to Lupine= 4.5 miles with the family! 6yr old fared well considering. 12 and 16 yr olds semi jogged and hiked and dragged. Was nice to run downhill Mesa Trail. Caught just a trickle from the Waterfall but scenic nonetheless! Highly recommended: (with a couple pocketfuls of almonds and 40 oz water at least).
