if you want to go to the Deep Creek Hot Springs they are just 2 miles past Rainbow Bridge not on the Pacific Crest Trail. plan to bring a headlamp and a jacket. small dogs hiking behind after dark not recommended due to mountain lion activity.

This was such a easy short hike. You walk along the dry river for a bit then take a little trail up into the canyon. a small section of scrambling and climbing for maybe 5 minutes. Just enough to get ur blood pumping then soon enough ur there. the waterfall is beautiful. Lots of large rocks and scenery. It's the perfect area to have a little picnic and relax..

Good hike with a payoff stream to chill at at the top. I love the incline which is hard but not so hard for hat footing becomes an issue.
It’s unfortunate that folks go ghetto and have the urge to paint their crap on rocks or play music so loud that others can hear it 100 yards away.

The hike was very clean, there were many trails available. I was pleased that I saw no liter, just graffiti, which is typical. I took my kids (8 and 15) with no troubles. Will go back again!

You’ll start off walking along the wide dry river rock, but stay to the left side of the valley. It’s about a 25 min walk until to start the trail uphill. It’s not long until you reach the top waterfall, if you can overlook the vast amount of graffiti on the rocks and trees during the hike, it’s a pretty cool site to see the water falling off the side of the cliff running down the wall when you reach the top!

This is not a hike. More like a walk. Going to the cross and flag is all incline but it’s a paved road so it’s not difficult. The rank of EASY is correct. Great for pets and kids of all ages. I love going for walks or hikes where the end result is something amazing. This has 3...the large cross, flag and view. PARKING: Best place to park is at the Ryan Bonamino park.
BEST TIME TO GO: Early morning as there is no shade and it gets very crowded by afternoon.
ADDITIONAL INFO: The trail to the right side of the mountain is harder than the left. Also there is a tower with a bridge that you can go on.

Love this hike when there is running water to walk in and two beautiful waterfalls (one you can climb up to the top of in to a little cave) it rained yesterday. Does anyone know if it was enough rain for a waterfall?

I believe moderate/difficult/intense is a good level describing this trail. Only reason why i’d go pretty high is because the second half is where you’re going up the river bed. and that means your climbing up boulders. No doubt you’re gonna get dirty when it’s raining. Today was raining after a quick thunderstorm the night before, but there wasn’t any running water. Kind of anti-climatic, but i’d like to go back when there’s running water. the way back is a lot easier, and if you’d like, you’ll be sliding down rocks and jumping from 4-5 feet. good boots or similar would be needed because of all the gravel and river bed rocks. The sad thing is that many boulders and rocks are tagged and some are inappropriate.

Great trail with beautiful views. Wish people would pick up their trash though. There are many trash receptacles on the trail so please put your empty bottles, etc in them.

Nice trails, beautiful views.

There were some steep bits that had some tricky footing, but the view was great. I went pretty far off the trail, but it was well worth it because the view for better the higher I got. I definitely recommend going higher that the trail if you have the time and energy.

Short steep hike on paved trail with lots of steps. The trees make it a 5 star walk. All down hill to the tree and all back up. My mother has walking difficulties so my kids walked her down to the handicap access from General Sherman, i busted it back up to the parking lot and picked them up.

We visited the General Sherman Trail on June 30th. The trees are definitely something to see!
It’s a paved easy walk. Go early if you want a less crowded visit.
If you’re not up for walking or have any sort of physical handicap, they have a easy to use shuttle system throughout the park that is very accommodating.
If you want a photo with the General Sherman Tree there will be a line that starts to form.
Be a pal and take the picture for the person before you.
It’s one of the worlds coolest trees. So by all means, get your photo.
After 10am this place turns into a total tourist spot and every tree becomes a live photo shoot for Instagram.
If you visit just be considerate and enjoy the moment.
But seriously, go see the trees!

Not a hike, a great way to see General Sherman, the largest tree on the planet. Have to agree on getting there early. It is just a taste of what you can experience if you can afford the time to go on some of the Giant Trees trails where you can be away from the crowds.
Gave it a down check because I had been on the other trails around it and the crowds really detract from how neat the experience is.

nothing's marked every sign was graffitied over the trail is very rocky and you have a incline all the way to the falls if you go past the first fall and stay to your left there is a second one which is nicer ,the veiws are decent but not sure if we will be going back

The trail is nice, Maintained with a fantastic view.

Great hike for those looking to get into shape or simply get their feet wet in the world of hiking. The trail hits you immediately with an uphill climb but one you finish that the rest of the hills on the trail become child's play. There aren't many shade spots so a visor and sun protection is recommended for those with sensitive skin going in the day. Trail opens at 9 and parking gets filled really fast. I usually park uphill a little past the trail entrance and walk down there's no permit required.

Great hike! So fun for Oktoberfest and getting in the Halloween Spirt!

Steady incline on loose rocks for about 1.75 miles. Small waterfall at top with small creek. Worth the hike. Took about 45min to get up and 30 min down. Rocks are slick by the waterfall, so plz watch your kids.

Love this trail.

Great paved trail family friendly! Felt safe the whole time!!

Had a great time. Amazing ocean views.

It was great, but nothing special!

Awesome experience! I recommend it

We never got to try the trail because of the parking. When we got to the "parking lot," there were "No Stopping Anytime" signs. We then drove around and found that all of the street parking was only available to the residents only with a permit. We came across a resident telling a group of hikers that if they left their car in front of his house, they'd get a ticket. We asked him where we could legally park to use the trail and he pointed to a small area where there were three (3) cars parked and they'd used up ALL the legal parking spots. It seems the only way to use this trail is to walk there from an elementary school parking lot a few blocks away but I'm not sure if that's allowed. Plus, we were trying to avoid walking on the concrete around our own neighborhood: that's why we went there! Needless to say, we felt unwelcomed to use the trail by, not only the lack of parking, but also the resident who informed us that the "parking lot" was closed because of "too many break-ins." I don't think hikers are welcome by the area residents.

I’ve done this trail many times and up to the Indian Village. Amazing views!

Great workout and trail. It gets pretty tough.

If you catch someone doing graffiti on rocks please let them know they're not welcome.
