NICE HIKE. HIKED IN TO THE ROCK WITH ALL THE PETROGLYPHS. THERE ARE SOME WILD ONES ON THE ROCK. NOTICED RAFTERS CAMPGROUND WHERE TRAIL TURNS UP THE CANYON. THE CANYON IS REALLY COOL. VENTURE OVER TO THE WATERFALL AND ALSO DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE FALL , BOTH ANGLES ARE COOL VIEWS. MILD AND LEVEL TRAIL. FOR ME THE TRAIL WAS BEST FROM THE BRIDGE INTO THE CANYON. THE WALK FROM PARKING TO THE BRIDGE WAS SO SO, BUT OVERALL A GREAT TRAIL.
