I'm only giving this trail a 2 because I took a wrong turn. Missed the lake trail completely, so, I can't really rate the lake trail.
The trail we did walk was well traveled and clear.
Heads up, you are supposed to have a Discovery Pass to park at the trail head.

This was a nice hike. Nothing really technical about it other than a few river crossings. The water was low for us and never got above our chins. The trail is hard to follow at times, but you can’t get lost. There is always a wall on either side. We actually found that if you start walking toward one wall or the other you may cross about 5 trails. At the turn around point we decided to climb one of the cliffs for a nice view. We also did some side trips up a couple of the washes that were really neat. Overall, we logged 7 miles. Easy hike even for a beginner, just be prepared to get your feet wet.

Really neat trail. The first half is very easy, but the last half to the river gets tough. The trail is not that bad if you can find the best rout, but that is not easy. On our way to the river, we ended up on the wrong side at one point and my brother performed “a committed fail” into the water 8’ below the wall we were on. I managed to get across by climbing the rock higher to get a foot hold. Be sure to wear good shoes and really look for the best routs; most of the time you are not in the bottom of the wash, but on the ledges.

Waterfall in The beginning of November is like a sink dribbling water lol good exercise though.

This was an excellent hike for all levels. It’s starts out with a gradual upgrade as you walk through the forest. Gorgeous views starting out. The trail does a switch back that heads off to the right that quickly became quite a bit steeper. The switchbacks made it doable. Our 10 year old daughter wasn’t thrilled about how long it was taking. She did get tired. We gave the option to turn around. Other hikers let us know we were about 15 minutes from the waterfall and cave. She then got determined to make it to the falls. We finally made it and the views were spectacular. The waterfall is trickling off of the mountain right now. Our daughter was super proud of herself for making it to the top. She climbed up a level and enjoyed sitting under the water. It was a great hike for exercise and ended with really gorgeous views. It’s always nice to be able to hike to water. We would definitely do it again. Without kids, you would get a killer workout in if that’s what you’re going for. Make sure to layer your clothing this time of year. When we left Vegas it was about 10-12 degrees warmer. It was cool up at the waterfall as the wind picked up a bit. The Temperature felt amazing as long as you could add or take off a layer. For those that may not be as stable on their feet, walking sticks would be nice. Not necessary, but helpful.

It was a pretty hike, but very crowded. The switchbacks are in pretty bad shape from erosion from people taking “short cuts”. We witnessed many people trying to be “adventurous” bypassing the switchbacks. Not only was it kicking rocks down on people, but also tearing up the earth. Show some respect. STAY ON THE TRAIL!

Arrived around 8:45 on Saturday morning and were surprised to see hardly any cars. Took us less than 2 hours and we hiked almost 4 miles at a very slow pace. We ended up not going up the switchbacks on the way up (took a left instead of a right at a fork). The trail is clearly marked at the beginning and then the blazes become non existent. Our “trail” up had a very steep grade with very loose rocks. It got us there quick but we really had to watch our steps. Cool cave to explore to the left of the 3 falls (more like trickles...but there was water!). And then we found the real trail to take back down. We did venture off it to check out a cool view and ended up on a very steep, non switchback trail for a little bit. Extremely dangerous due to the loose rocks. Parking lot was almost full when we completed our hike.

Bring more water than you anticipate needing. This is a strenuous hike that has long portions of “stair-master” type climbs.. views are incredible once you reach the top!

I hiked here back in March and it's one of my favorite trails of the year. I recommend not going solo especially if you aren't experienced. There's a few drops, but it's very fun to navigate as you go along. The river at the end is the best reward.

Great little training hike with a cool payoff at the end. Mid week is best to avoid crowds. It’s pretty easy hiking, stay on the trail and don’t cut the switch backs, and remember it starts at 7,800’ in elevation so pace yourself until you’re acclimated.

Great hike, don’t forget you are starting at about 7800 feet

One of my favorites on the mountain!

This hike should have an easy rating. It's pretty flat but what scenery! We took the right fork in the trail and hiked to the waterfall and back. We then took the left fork and made our way down to the river. This hike was a great change of pace from what we see in the mountains. I'd like to try it again in the spring when the grass and flowers are out.

Great views of the river going up and an even better view when you can see to the other side once you reach the top. A bit like horseshoe bend but without the crouds. No shelter available along the route.

Such an awesome trail! Cairns are going to be your best friend on this trail, they mark when to switch sides and levels throughout the canyon. Definitely be ready to get a little muddy. Incredible sights around every corner. The best parts, in my opinion, are after the 30 ft drop. There are anchors if you want to repel down...but it is doable to get down without ropes.

Great beginner’s trail. Lots of switchbacks & is a moderate incline the whole way up, but it’s very easy to go down the way back! Safe for dogs & kids. Can get crowded on weekends, but it’s worth it for the view + mini waterfall(s) at the end. My whole family does this hike every year in the spring when snow melt is high & the waterfall is POURING.

Amazing quiet trail. We passed 2 other hikers on the entire hike - and he views at the top are spectacular in all directions. It’s an easy trail to follow, reasonably steep with plenty of uneven ground to cover.

The hike itself is great but should not be listed as Light, this is definitely a moderate trail although somewhat short in length.

We also did lose the trail as it splits and we took the wrong direction bc it ended. We followed someone else who looked like they knew what they were doing - our mistake.

We didn't end up finding the waterfall, but the drive up there and the views are gorgeous. I think we got close but it was 6pm and we needed to get back before we were stuck in the dark. I'll probably try again.

Definitely loose gravel, 'stairs', steep inclines, and mixed terrain.

Great workout. A lot of elevation gain in a fairly short distance (about 2 miles.) I usually get to the junction with the North Loop in 55 mins and can run back down in 20. Perfect for days where you don’t have a lot of time, but want a great workout surrounded by the beauty of the wilderness.

Really cool trail and definitely a good challenge. The stone markers are helpful and you should be able to get through without wading through any big puddles. A word of advice: if it starts raining, even a light drizzle, get out of the canyon as soon as you can. My wife and I pushed a little further in when it started to drizzle and had a hell of a time coming back out. Everything gets slippery and it floods quickly. If you do get stuck, there are a couple places to climb out of the canyon and walk out to the road.

my fiance, her cousin, his girlfriend and my son went on this trail. beautiful views! My fiance and I didnt make it all the way, her and I got about halfway through the switchback. the rest of our group made it to the top

Really good hike. Great workout. The river view is amazing.

Great hike. Well worth the effort to get down to the river. Thanks for the markers.

Wonderful trail. Great scenery. Thank you to people who left stone markers. Truly enjoyed the walk. A few spots where you need to find your way around puddles left by the rain. Would do it again.

Incredible, "inter-active", versatile view hike. start at lonely dell ranch on google maps, bring some water proof shoes, and if you want to not handle with water logistics issues- keep in mind to bring some water purify instruments/pills to get as much water that you like from the river.
The hike is flat- yet extremely muddy - some of the crossings as a result consume some more time.
Watch for flash floods notifications before visiting - this hike can be washed rapidly due to the tender texture of the soil and the already significant presence of water along the trail.

this is one of the more enjoyable short Trails I've done in awhile. I know there was a lot of comments about difficulty finding the way down but it's fairly well marked if you take your time to look. That being said I did go by myself, which I wouldn't recommend. There was nobody else on the trail untill I actually reached the Colorado River. And then we all hiked out together, and got caught in a little bit of rain/wind right at the very end. I had gone ti Antelope before this to see that amazing canyon, but this "wash" was a more enjoyable hike.

Relatively easy hike, just watch your footing on a few weathered parts of the trail!

This was an epic little trail, so much fun! Gotta climb a little bit here and there. Something unique and different !

Great trail, beautiful views. Only downfall was about half the hikers were maling their own path and causing rocks to slide down from above.

Whoever said you can’t get lost, hasn’t met me yet. We got lost, ended up scrambling up a rocky hillside that was nearly vertical to get back to the trail. The views were incredible! The waterfall is small but beautiful. We went early and there were still a lot of people. All in all, a beautiful hike, definitely moderate trail. We will hike it again one day but stay on the trail the next time!!
