Spectacular beautiful hike- not recommended for little kids in the fall- water too cold. My 8&13yr old enjoyed it. My 2 doxies also managed! Highly recommend-
Absolutely gorgeous totally worth it!!
Quite easy and lots of fun!
Beautiful hike. I'll definitely go back. Make sure you have your water shoes Bc you will need. A lot of walking in the water.
Amazing! Did it the first week of June. The water was so refreshing to walk through.
If u want to hike a trail, THIS IS IT!!! Ur feet will get wet and somewhat cold but that doesn't stop this trails kick a$$ hike. Take something to put ur phone in that's waterproof just incase and try not to carry anything by hand; take a fanny pack or camelback. People traffic can get annoying especially if they have strollers or kids but they are kind enough to let u pass. I tried this hike and will come back again. Find the courage to climb up the second waterfall as the trail keeps going.
Amazingly beautiful trail. Highly recommend a walking stick and neoprene socks! Best todo in summer. So much fun and great place for pictures!
Do this one. Put it on your list. You get a lot of reward for minimal effort. If you go on a weekend or holiday there will probably be a lot of people including tons of families and a fair number of dogs. Enterprising townspeople may be providing additional parking for a fee. I don't mind too much though, there is a bit of a party atmosphere when everyone is hiking together. You still have plenty of chances to enjoy the beautiful spots along the way without feeling too crowded. Most groups stop after the first ladder. The water is cold, so it a super good hot weather hike. Plan to get very wet. Otherwise you are missing all the fun. It begins with a boring dirt road, but as soon as you cross that river for the first time, it's all gorgeousness and fun after that. People do bring their dogs, but very few hoist them up and down the ladder. Above the first ladder is a natural water slide area that is great to stop and picnic. Love this hike.
The hike wasn't hard at all. I think the hardest thing was getting used to the freezing water. We went in September for labor day wkend and had a blast. Nice climb to the waterfalls and you can pretty much whenever you want too.
The trail definitely doesn't disappoint. a great combination of dirt trail, walking in the water, and some rock scrambling. The canyon itself has stellar views around every corner. When you get to the "ladder" on the first falls, be wary about not only going up, but also if you can get down. The ladder for the second falls is even more sketchy, but totally doable if you have moderate athletic ability. This hike is on my must-do list whenever I'm in the area.
Fantastic hike to the falls. No matter your ability to rock-hop, you will get your feet completely soaking wet before you reach the first falls.
Great Hike! Wear shoes good for land and water. The sign at the entrance says dogs are welcome Although we took our smaller dogs with us, we wouldn't do it again. Plan for a $10 parking fee.... and ENJOY! I love this hike! The slot canyon and waterfall are amazing.
