Very scenic beginner trail. This trail was heavily trafficked on the weekend, and there were too many people at the waterfall to be able to relax and enjoy it. Maybe on a weekday. I wish there were more trails for the $12 fee to go there; I'll probably take advantage of the reduced summer fee of $5 when less people are likely to push through the heat.

Can be done in 3 hours. Nice to do it this way: fern canyon - vandeventer - palm canyon. At the end, to to the palm canyon, you should follow the lower trail and not the upper one (victor trail).
Beautiful hike, not too strenuous, and a lot of landscapes/nature variation.

Beautiful hike. However, expect to pay $12.50 for adults and $6 for children. I went on a Saturday afternoon and it was pretty crowded.

Nice Trail but dogs can only go part way up. You will see a sign they can not pass - bummer.
