Super easy! A good one for the whole family!

don't go up the left scree side. so much fun going down the scree that way though!

Amazing views. Pretty intense moments if you don't like heights. Bring hiking polls.

We did it while there was still snow and the water was ice. It was a slippery hike, but worth it to climb into the small dugout after the falls.

Unique hike in that once you reach the canyon you are walking through a river bed with walls sometimes reaching 40 feet high. Crazy to think that water must have raged through there at an insane rate to carve out the canyon walls like that.
First 1/3 of the hike is just walking through the woods past an industrial plant and it's uneventful until you reach the canyon.
The end has a waterfall toward back right corner but you have to walk on some slick rock slabs to get a view.
Also gets busy so get there early and can be windy/ chilly in the canyon.
Beautiful.

Great hike, the views are really exciting especially once you get out of the trees and out onto the rock. took my friend and I almost 3 hours to the top and we were going a decent pace. make sure to follow the blue painted markers once you get into the rock section and they'll take you right to the top.

Excellent hike, but not for the faint of heart. Scree leads to drops in some locations. Small section of chains / ledge. Some members of our group are extreme fitness people and they found it to be a challenge. Nice views of the foothills.
