Must be the wrong time of year to go for the waterfalls, there was a
flowing creek, but no falls. I read the maps wrong so we ended up going 10 miles. Pretty dry the most the way. We did manage to catch a great fall photo on the 7 pools loop.

This trail is prefect! Not hard and not to easy!

it was littt

Great hike. Nice and easy for families of all ages.

Nice hike, pretty hot and dry. Some very pretty views.

The trails are pretty steep. The views were excellent. The only problem I had was heat. That's just me... I would recommend this place to anyone.

This is a great place to hike!! There are so many trials you can go for a short hike on up to around 10miles if you circle the whole area. I went 6-7 mile and the longer trails are not very busy. I didn't see many people until I got closer to the waterfall and river. There are also a lot of signs letting you know where you are and what trails you can take. I will definitely be back!

Great simple hike...paved road down near the end and keep in mind this is a spillover from a dam not a waterfall. Still beautiful and loved that we could hike side by side most of the way.

Great swimming hole along the way.

It was a nice hike and the waterfall was beautiful. we could have stayed all day by the water. The hike was a bit long for the younger kids (5 and under)but overall a great experience

This was my second trail hike and I enjoyed it. Being new to hiking and I am 52 the up hill was slow going for me but the view was amazing.

listed as low traffic. Definitely not. There were horses, bikes, dogs, strollers; parking lot and over flow lot packed. couple times it felt more like a TSA line. Sights were great, hike easy with several different trails to make it as long or as short as you want. Overall, great for family or social time.

Did this hike on 9/2/16. Great place for a couple or family. Took about 3 hours to do the out and back, stopping for lunch at the dam.

Some spots are very sunny so bring sunscreen and water. Also wear good walking/hiking boots as parts of the trail gets rocky. Most of the trail is wide with plenty of room for 4-5 people across.

After the hike bring some folding chairs, a cooler with drinks and food/snacks and walk down and relax by the river. Don't forget the life jackets for the little ones.

It was great! We did the 5 mile with 4 kids (3-12) and swam at Clarks Pool. It was beautiful. We arrived at 9am. Was perfect weather all morning. On our way back to the car from Clarks Pool was super hot! So hike early and play late :)

This hike was beautiful! I would recommend going before it gets too hot during the day. I forgot that the last stretch of the trail was all uphill. But a great workout with some beautiful scenery.
