great hike if you're not afraid of drop offs. beautiful waterfall along the way. great climb. lots and lots of poison oak so be aware! river destination is great! in November there were millions of lady bugs. there are couple rock sections on trail to be solid footed, not bad though if you're a hiker. have done it several times, with my dog too so I'm not sure why there is a sign!
Very nice hike. Clocked it in at 6 miles total not 4 though. Not very many people on the trail. The trail hugs the river for most of the hike and it's really beautiful. Miles 2-3 of the hike in are where the trail starts to get a little sketchy. Narrow trail right on a cliff but doable. Also the sign for the trail said no bikes or dogs. We didn't see any bikes but did see a few people with dogs. All in all good hike.
