dogs on leash
A friend and I hiked this trail this past weekend and camped over Saturday night. 10/22-23/2016. Leaves are starting to change however next weekend should probably be a better weekend for fall foliage. Loots of woods hiking with 3 streams crossed. Only had one bluff on this hike and no arches; unless we completely missed them. A few huge rock formations and cave structures. Had a bout a mile on a gravel road with traffic and crossed a freeway by bridge road. Like I mentioned not a great trek if looking for a lot of bluff views or rock arches however fairly challenging with a couple difficult challenging. path climbs.
This is a nice but short hike and is heavily used so expect to run into a lot of people and lots of children and women hiking with sandles on. So you might be held up by a group of people moving very slow through the hike. There is some sharp elevation changes as you hike down to Creation Falls and the Rock Bridge area as well as back up as you move back to the trailhead on the opposite end.
Perfect weather. Went before in late summer and the trip was cut short due to seed tick attack. Made it to the falls this time which was running at a decent trickle. Rock outcroppings and cave like areas would be cool on much warmer days. My three year old had no issues managing the trail.
