The waterfall at the end of this trail was breathtaking! Hiked it in late December and the snow added a bit of a challenge. Can't wait to hike this again I'm the warmer seasons.

This was an amazing trail and the waterfall was beautiful. Hiked it during the winter so the snow was a great touch and made it a bit more challenging.

I really enjoyed this hike minus the fact I went up early on a Saturday and it was so busy. I definitely prefer this on a weekday. It was a little harder for my puppy since the end is fairly rocky and it was slippery for him trying to get up. I would say a easy hike, lots of little kids.

Tons of off-leash dogs. All friendly but kind of annoying cause you never know if their dog is friendly.
SUPER BUSY for a Sunday in November.
The trail itself. Amazing.

Beautiful trail up to the waterfall. I took my 5 and 3 year olds and they made it all the way up and back down with little assistance. The switchbacks at the start are the worst part
