was fun, great look out point. great views

Great trail system with many options. Light rain & lots of mud today, but glorious sounds from all the water.

Beautiful hike & run along the Middle Fork of the American River. River was swollen, and some erosion of the trail made for a couple dangerous spots.

Hiked on 12/31/2016 Awesome end of the year, hike. It was very different since this was my first hike. I love all the view points and seeing my first live waterfall was amazing. It wasn't a difficult trail, but there were some high spot. I would recommend this to families as well. I had a blast!

Great trail system. Many optional routes that are clearly marked. Because of all the rain, there was plenty of water flowing in the creek & the falls were beautiful as always.

This time we enjoyed Seven Pools Loop on our way back from the falls. Gorgeous setting... lush greenery, stunning boulders, rushing water sounds as we walked near the creek. It wasn't an especially crowded day on the main trails (Legacy, etc.), but it was still nice to get off the main drag for a bit. Felt remote & was fun to have a trail almost completely to ourselves.

We didn't really stick to the trail, we explored a bit. Recent rain mad for a messy , muddy hike. Views were nice and it felt great to be outside again! ☀️

Beautiful hike. Definitely beginner friendly.

Fun little hike! So much water right now, it was beautiful. It's worth climbing through all of the rocks at the bottom to get a closer view of the dam.

The trail was easy to find and it was nice to have parking right by the trail. It was a nice walk and we loved the waterfall stops along the way. The trail was a tad bit hard to stay on because there were several trails within hidden falls but as long as we stayed on the red lines on the app, it made it easy to follow.
