This is such a great hike for the family! My kids really enjoyed it and took in all the beautiful, lush landscape that surrounded us. We will definitely be back!

I have been here a few times now and really enjoy scenery. When the creek is full, it’s absolutely stunning and I love to walk through it post hike! An amazing cool down. The waterfall is beautiful and not too difficult to get to. I highly recommend!

This was a pleasantly surprising hike! It is great to get the family out and about into nature. There are plenty or rock formations, brooks, and tree roots for young ones to climb and explore. Most of the trail is paved but there are places you can go off the beaten path. Depending on the day you will have heavy traffic or light traffic. Either way, it's worth taking the family to see the heart in the rock. I do caution, some vandals did tag rocks with graffiti.

It has been said that it changed its beauty due to the trash and graffiti. But we still saw how amazing it was getting there. We did a short video of our trip. https://bit.ly/2MSX59I

easy hike, not too many people were there which made it nicer.

Nice shaded trail but steep to get to falls. Hard to find trails or where to park.

A beautiful water fall.

Nice short hike with some water to get your feet wet. Family friendly with lots of shaded areas to relax.

Lots of rocks, would recommend hiking shoes and water shoes for when you get to falls. It’s really nice though, I’m for sure going back.

The trail was nice, and had a lot of shadows. But the entrance was hard to find. You have to go in front of the camp, then follow the pavement until you see a dirt road.

first time and had a wonderful time.. going back again soon.

no wilderness permit required..I ck at ranger station before heading up..just the pass for the car..6.5 hrs total

Lots of shade, nice breeze and beautiful. Trail is easy at first but steep towards end. A lot of people. . Not enough water for waterfall in July. Didn’t see the heart rock - don’t know if you have to climb down rocks to see it.

Beautiful day for a hike to the falls. So disheartened to see the graffiti along the way. I support art and expression, but please don't use Mother Nature as your canvas.

Great walk, beautiful views with a refreshing stop at the falls. The only problem is people trashing the place and not taking care of the mess they leave behind.

Good for beginners! Really nice place!

Easy trek with our dog. Some spots required a little extra footwork around trees where the sand was slippery, but neither kids nor adults were phased by this. The temp was perfect for the summertime- breezy and cool. To get to the trailhead, you’ll drive through a camp parking lot over a very shallow creek (at least when we were there) and make a couple windy turns before reaching an open space for several cars to park. The trail is covered in shade with lots of wildflowers and a little stream below the path. You can actually get to the heart in the picture if you climb down from the trail and climb up the rocks.

nice view took my 3 year old he loved it.

Lots of people and groups, kids, somewhat scenic trail. The closet parking area is indicated. We went a bit farther than the main tourist attraction, but wasn't worth it. Scrambling on rocks, cliffs somewhat fun.

Easy, fun, family trail

Amazing trail! Remember to bring more water than you need the sun gets intense so take your time on the way back. Also I had a blue heeler with me and he did great there and the way back for anyone thinking of bringing your furry kids.

We each brought a trash bag and started collecting litter along the trail

Great family hike.

Had a great time

It’d be a beautiful trail but due to the easy access it’s a local teen hang out which I can ignore, most are nice enough. I was too preoccupied by all the trash left behind to really appreciate my walk. Instead I made a makeshift sack with a towel left behind and collected as many water/Gatorade bottles as I could hold (even crushed and condensed.) they were all over! Floating in the little pools, scattered about the rocks, down the hills, along the trail. Came across a field trip or party of kids with some adults and one of the kids threw a stick toward my dog who was on leash minding her own business, none of the adults said any thing. Besides that there are some steep hills and slippery rocks, so be prepared.

Beautiful waterfall!! One of my favorites but extremely crowded! I was wondering if anyone has found the hidden falls or climbed to the top of Bonita Falls??
