This is my go-to local trail! There are plenty of trails for variety with multiple places to stop and take in all its beauty!

Worth doing. Easy and worth the falls off the dam at the end.

I did this today with 3 teenagers & a 9 year old. We all had a great time. The trails are marked well & the waterfall was beautiful. The weather was perfect. There are many different trails to choose from, so even though it says 5 miles, you don't have to the full 5 to see the waterfall, which made the kids happy.

$10 parking, but you can park on the Georgetown side of the bridge and start there. Parking is free on that side. The hike to lake Clementine is beautiful, with many places to stop off and rest. There are also many other trails you can explore near the trail head. There are bathrooms the bridge, as well as near Lake Clementine. Though the waterfalls are not natural falls, still very pretty hike, and fun spot for a picnic.

Easy to navigate and moderate in difficulty. A lot of trails to wonder off on if you want to go further. Trails are also clearly marked, so you know where you are going. A great hike for any age.

Pretty views. Really a road instead of a trail, but still a fun easy hike

Very crowded. Parking lot full. Waterfall was okay. We did a few other loops off the main trail to get away from the crowds.

Great photo opps here. Always a rainbow above the dam. Water splashes down on you. Very loud and a grand finale for having walked all that way. My son loved it. Easy hike. Lots of sun in the beginning and at the end. Lots of people on the trail. Very popular.

Great hike. not to hard not to easy. beautiful!

Perfect for all ages, nice scenery & such a peaceful hike. Parking sucks and you have to pay a 10 fee

There are three entrances to this trail. Absolutely loved the trail with the waterfall. Definitely not kid friendly...

Great local hike, great for kids.
