Good conditions today despite the snowfall. I have a 2-wheel drive car and parking was easy. Beautiful winter hike even though we didn't make it to the top. Wore spikes which were helpful on the steeper spots. You absolutely have to have them right now but it's more work without. We had to trek through untouched snow toward the top, which is part of why we turned around. Saw a couple on the way up and a few more people when we were almost back to the car. Glad we went!

Definitely watch out for snakes in the summer time. Besides those buggers, it has enjoyable trails for both short and long distance walks/hikes.

So you should know, I got surprised with a 5 dollar park fee. I am going back to walk all of it.

Moderate trail. I would go back simply because the view is amazing once you reach to the top. Don't forget to sign in. :)

Not overly impressed. It's a decent trail, but do go here if you expect to be blown away scenic wise. Although it's maintained pretty well.

Very fun morning hike. We went with family and everyone was able to make it to the falls and hang out down below. We want to go go back and maybe stay longer at the falls and eat some lunch. Make a longer trip out of it because it is so pretty!

Great trail! Bring a flashlight and wear clothing for cold weather. Great for kids and dogs and great view at the end.
