Amazing hike. I'm sad they closed it. I hope the city reopens it in the future. Not surprised they closed it seeing how much disrespectful little shits left garbage and graffiti all over this place. If they open again, I hope they charge a parking fee or something to keep those disrespectful pieces of shit out of here. Such a unique hike.

Fun trail. Was pretty cool you could climb up the side of the waterfall. Sucks it's closed.

The hike was great, although we didn't reach the falls. The map was a little deceiving. But definitely going again to find the falls.

I have been reading up on different reviews for this hike. Where do you park, where you will not get towed or receive a ticket? Some people have said they have had problems with this and with local residents, I am wondering how to avoid issues.

Pretty waterfall and cool that you can hike up it, but I felt like this hike was more saddening then soothing... so much graffiti and litter. I'm not surprised they closed it down.

Trail is fun, not maintained AND completely covered in graffiti and trash. Hiked this trail for years before it closed and heard all the stories. Hiked one last time barefoot and it was horrid to say the least, even went as far as to discuss the importance of not spray painting the Rock and then throwing there toxic cans in the river... Closed just after that. Happy to see the good people of the forest comity and volunteers are cleaning up what was not ours to dirty in the first place. I look forward to seeing the trail open again one day.

Discovered this place years ago and really love it. Waterfall and pond to take a dip in at the end is the best!
