Surprises at every turn We took a forked trip to hike the two canyons. One was short, almost too short but in retrospect a way to start experiencing the alive canyons with the spider webs hanging from branches to rocks and filtering the sunlight. Or the pleasant surprised of seeing a small rattle snake on the concrete walkway out of the forest. The early morning hike gave a morning dew filtered light with the coolness of the damp ground. Refreshing. The mushrooms and the rocks with the little meadows, and the water falls as well as the creeks provided a sense of wonderment.

From the nature center, you have two trailheads: 1) Going to the dam and 2) Going to the waterfall. Each is about 1.5 miles. Relative easy and pleasant for most hikers.
