Always a good hike, keep your feet dry!

This is an awesome trail with great views. Not a hard trail not easy either.. the low rating is due to the excessive flow of people heading to the falls!! A friend wanted to see the falls so went back with her but started at 6:30am and no one was there when we got there!!!

I don't know if I misread the mile marks but for us it was longer than 9 miles and we didn't reach the end. We stopped at 4.5 miles as it was getting darker and turned back. I was expecting the trail end at 3.8 miles based on the total of 7.9 miles. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful hike. It was like walking through a slightly elevated landscape garden. I just love the saguaros!

Did this hike with family while visiting my sister the day before Thanksgiving. There was not as much water flowing at the falls this year compared to last year when we did this hike, but it’s still beautiful. A few water crossings, but we didn’t even get our feet wet this year.

We went in April and nobody else was around because of the heat. But the trail was lovely!

Great hike a few weeks back. Weather was in the low 70’s and it took us about 4.5 hours there and back with a long break for lunch at the pools. Great views from about the half way point onward!

Hiked it before Thanksgiving. Was a great hike and loved the falls. I highly recommend this trail

best trail run ever!

Really stunning trail that follows the creek up the canyon. Wonderful view points as it curves up the head of the canyon. Great picnic spot on the smooth water washed rocks at the midpoint of the falls at the top. Easy hike. Walking poles nice to have at the top.

Great hike. Did the detour to the top of the peak for fabulous views.

Great hike. Some of the trail is “runnable” but a lot of it isn’t - well not for mere mortals like me anyway!

Beautiful views of the city and surrounding area. Did solo- no issue of losing the trail or not knowing where to go. Did the out and back and would like to do the loop next time around. Started from King Canyon trailhead which states it’s 3.5 from the top. Was a little tired from seven falls a few days prior so it was a slog to the top. Very nice pace on the way down even checked out the picnic area! Trying the loop for sure next time and make sure to bring more snacks as a sandwich and granola for breakfast wasn’t enough. It was a super windy day so was glad to have a long sleeve and a snug hat!

loved the trail! went during the best time, there was water, it was low 60s, and there weren't very many people. i bet summer is brutal, but i totally recommend it this time of year.

Great hike!! Loved all the river crossings. Saw frogs, and enjoyed the views from the top. Beautiful photo opps along the way!

Fairly easy trail (if you're good on distance) and enjoyable hike with stunning destination. For those who wish to be more challenged, plenty of opportunities to navigate up the falls (though use caution, particularly when wet), while the rest of your party relaxes down below.

Easy hike/walk with friends. Struggle to find the trail in some places but still easy to walk the dry creek bed and pick up the trail further on. Shade, birds, spots where water rushes over rocks, many vista points to stop and snack or take pics.

Great and easy trail.

Make sure u are at the falls before 1400 if u want to have enough fun for a swim.

This trail has a variety of interesting vistas and interweaves along the creek bed, which when water levels are on the higher side, creates some fun little creek crossings. The pay off on this hike comes when you reach 7 falls (provided there is water at the falls). The falls are not visually impressive, but make a very chill setting. This is a great hike for hikers of a range of skill levels.

Hot but beautiful hike. The area is so green because of the recent rains. And the pools were running and full and refreshing.

Good trail. Pools were full after all the oct rain

loved it and the pools are the best way to cool off from the heat

Dogs not allowed on this trail.

This was a great hike! The trail clear but not marked very well. It seems like the pools should be bigger at the end, but definitely explore more and you’ll find cool little water falls and bigger pools. The water was flowing yesterday! Also from the parking lot to the pools is more like 6 miles round trip. Definitely worth it!

I hiked this trail with my husband back in January when I was 38 weeks pregnant (my ambitious idea, not his) and loved it! It was a rewarding challenge with incredible views the entire way. The falls were dry at that time of the year, but it was still well worth it to get to the end. Lots of people were out, but everyone we passed was very encouraging along the way.

Hiked it on a Sunday after Saturday rains. Stream was up to my knees during crossings and all seven falls were roaring. Be careful not to lose track of the trail near the last (7th) crossing.

Great Hike, all said and done, we went to the 2nd set of pools where the water was flowing and beautiful. Coming down in some spots were tough on my knees, but others were going down no problem.

The first 2 miles are on hard pack dirt or paved road from the parking lot. The shuttle service was no longer running. The scenery the entire route is beautiful. I hit a dry season so the creek crossings were easy and dry. I can see more difficulty when water is flowing and would bring water shoes or prepare for soggy feet. The difficult part the trail is about a mile from the falls but it’s not super hard. I did find the trail relatively poorly marked given the 7 creek crossings. Because there are side trails by the crossings, pay attention to picking up the trail on the other side. Basically you are following the creek into the canyon so you cannot get lost but can end up searching a bit for the trail. The falls were almost nonexistent but there were pools of water and it didn’t take much to envision how spectacular it would be in the wet season.
