Love it here. Nothing beats relaxing in one of the canyons early in the morning before it gets crowded.

Only gripe is there seems To Be more and more lap dogs prancing around on trails lately!

Great hike! Just a shame that there wasn't much rainfall for the waterfalls. Winter will be a treat though!

Go early in the day. The waterfalls are worth every mile.
