A moderately difficult 0.75-mile hike that begins a Deer Ridge Campground and also leads to the waterfall
Best hike in the park. Easy, scenic little canyon. best do early in day to beat the crowds.
Love this trail. I've hiked it more times than I can count, and it's always great. You can walk straight to the waterfall and back and the trail is perfectly flat and easy for trail rates strollers. That makes the trail much shorter, though.
beautiful views and an easy trail to navigate for a nice walk.
Nice hike for kids or those who only want a short hike. Best time to come is during or right after a long rain storm. Lots of areas to explore off the main trail.
the "waterfall" was dried up. but there was caves on the other side of the park that was fun.
One of my favorites. To see the waterfall you should hike it in the late Spring, early Summer or after a period of rainy weather for the area. Very easy trail, strollers can be taken on it.
me and my four yr old hiked today. it was beautiful and fun. most the water was dried up though.
Beautiful spot. Hiked in from campground along the base of the cliffs. Great experience viewing the rock faces, plants growing out of rock, cool air from the cracks/caves. Trail to the falls is easy and flat, a mother was pushing a stroller. Very little water but still breathtaking.
