Loved the trail leading up to the Waterfall. The boulders can be challenging but my 11 yr old son and I worked through it together. My 15 and 6 years old went up and down them with no hesitation. Definitely worth seeing but go early, we were gone for an hour before heading back, as we headed back people from the campsite started towards the Waterfall, so go early if you want to beat the campers!
great hike...the falls are the best in the spring time due to the runoff from thr snow melt.
Quick, easy hike with a little bit of scrambling possible at the falls. Great for bringing non-hikers. Trail disappeared close to the falls and required going up and over some rocks but very easy and well worth it.
Short easy hike. Great for familys. when you come to the rocks... there is a way through and a way to the left. Great views throughout.
There is no signs really. You come to a dead end and you have to go over these rocks then you will see the trail again.
Besutiful trail on a short hike. Keep hiking up and you will see many waterfalls.
Awesome hike! We hiked to the falls and continued past the falls to find smaller falls further on. The water was very cold as we crossed in a calm place so that we could hike the other side back down. Saw some wildflowers coming up but no flowers yet. Had lunch at the falls and enjoyed the sunny warm weather!
