Nice easy hike, moderate not hard as described. Great for a light workout!

It was moderate, not hard, but there is some sand for awhile as the trail which can be tiring. It was cool though. Saw a couple of people riding horses around the area. Views were ok. Not a lot of people hiking it.

This is a short, nice hike. No steep hills. Just take a bottle of water and hiking or tennis shoes.

We are having problems with the description of level of difficulties in this app. Descriptions are off in too many cases, and this trail is a good example.
This is a "moderate" trail at best, definitely not "hard" as described in this App. It starts somewhat steep but then becomes flat and easy. The hike thru the canyon was fun and easy.
The trail is relatively short, less then 3miles and it took us about an hour to complete, with many stops.
At the highest point of the trail, before you decent into the canyon, keep on walking for another 10 min to the best vista point of the SFV, not to be missed.

Not a bad trail it's easy and family friendly. There are some homeless men around the area but seem harmless they have never bothered us. Pretty cool artifact in the gorge toward the top. You will see an old what looks like a late 1950's dump truck down there. All and all a nice short hike.

I lover this place. Been going with my family since I was maybe 7 or 8 years old. Right now, the beginning of spring is my favorite time to go. Just took my wife and kids today and it was beautiful. No water flowing in the creek like usual though. Getting to the falls isn't too bad of a hike. Once and awhile you will run into a few homeless people Camped near the water fall, never had a problem but just be cautious.
