really good trail I loved the different elevations took my 5 yr old he got tired half way did not finish the trail but for sure there was not a waterfall ... the only thing is when we went in September it was kind of dry alot of dust but other than that really liked it...
Good for exercise and not too hard. Has a small creek that you have to hop over at the start. Not much when I was there but I was there at one of the detest times of the year. Not sure what it would be like earlier in the year. Has a lot of shade so nice for hot days.
My friend and I chose it as a first hike for our kids, figuring we'd go in a mile or so and then turn around and hike back out. We picked it based on the Easy rating and the tag "kid friendly", as well as the photos attached to the hike. We were not expecting a narrow single track on the side of the hill that was all rocks and elevation change. It just wasn't a good choice for them.
That being said, we're going to go back out and tackle it again with just adults. There is a lot to see on this trail, and the switchbacks and narrow singletrack kept things interesting for us. In short, good spot to hike, but be aware that the information is misleading.
