My 12 week old puppy was bit by a pit bull in the face. Will never go here again. If I could give it negative stars I would.

Great location and hike. Lots of water flowing due to all the rain we had however one of the trails is closed past the waterfall.

Love this canyon. I Used to go here when I was a kid before it was developed as a park.

Nice! Easy to access and good for all levels. I am a novice mountain biker so I had to walk my bike up a few of the big hills. The waterfall is just shy of 3 miles in. Also beware the hills are rocky. We enjoyed the day.

I went in the 3 miles it take to reach the waterfall. The trail was well maintained, and more of a walk than hike. Regardless the surrounding habitats were gorgeous with some good bird watching and peaceful side trails.
