Wonderful way to spend your 75th birthday. Great park.
Wonderful hike this was one of the first trails I remember hiking with my uncle when I was younger the waterfalls are awesome and plenty of nice little swimming holes excellent camping spots as well.
I have been going to this location for over 20 years. I love it obviously. The hike is easy, with only a few sharp up-hill areas. It is an easy day hike with tons of camping all along the trail. There are several smaller waterfalls as you approach the final fall. Beautiful photo opportunities for sure. The only thing I can say is that over the past 20 years this place has become more and more traveled. Thus, the trails are experiencing some severe erosion, especially the waterfall area at the end of the trail. But it is family friendly for sure and my dog loves the trail. Just note that some smaller children may tire before reaching the final waterfall. I have also noted a larger amount of trash being left by campers. Be kind and maybe bring in an empty bag to pick up what others have carelessly left.
Kids really enjoyed this trail. The end was well worth it and almost a straight shot up. Few good stops to rest.
Loved the trail and the views. Awesome area. Wasn't difficult at all. Good experience until I ran into the rattle snake.
Nice trail. view on waterfall at end somewhat blocked by fallen trees
Good hike for families. Not hazardous at all. We had a great hike here
The trail was in great condition and seems we got to miss part of the crowds by going on a Friday. The trail followed the creek for the most part and the water level was up and made for many photo opps along the way.
This is a 2.5 mile out 2.5 mile back trail. The trail follows along side of the stream for most of the trail. Easy hiking for the most part. Once you reach the falls you have the option to climb up a rock above the falls which is a tough climb but so worth it because the view is awesome.
There were a good amount of people on the trail, families with kids of all ages, lots of folks with dogs of all sizes.
