rock climbing

Nice paved trail until you make it to the waterfall look out. If you have children take them down the rock path to the stream and then climb up to the waterfall. Wear shoes with traction! Rocks are loose. There is a narrow path off of the paved trail to get to the falls but it’s unsafe for children or maybe even pets. Went last weekend and it was a beautiful, crisp day.

Very nice easy trail. Restrooms at the interpretive center. Mostly paved except the dirt side trails.

Don’t be misled by the short distance. It’s a steep uphill climb...sometimes up to 35 degree incline...steep all the way and rocky. It’s not too bad cuz it’s short, but it’s a nice little challenging hike.

We did several trails this weekend. This and Bertha peak are pretty close to each other. I think this is harder than Bertha. It’s a pretty lengthy steep climb for about the second half going up. I got pretty winded. Still a great hike. I had done it once before and will do it again. Great view from the top.

I had a difficult time finding the entrance to this ‘trail’ tucked in behind a marina. This trail is a paved blacktop road suitable for biking walking or running. The scenery is beautiful, but there is not much shade. Safe place to run, with beautiful views and no traffic.

Great trail we went with our 2.5 yo that was able to do the bulk of the trail and we we're able to carry her the rest of the way.

Easy short hike. You need to climb some rocks for better views - that can be fun :) parking spot is small and you need to cross the road, so be carefull. we've collected a lot of trash after other people on that trail that day.

steep climb from the start. several side trails before the final climb. lots of rock climbing. several rock formations.

11/6/18 Drove to the trail head in a Ford Focus st. Take your time and a small vehicle does just fine with no scraping what so ever. Beautiful views at the hot spring but be advised there will be nudists at certain points. The hike out is all up hill making it more challenging on the way back. Pretty decent work out. I will return to hike again.

We take our young kids here all the time. It’s a fun, easy hike with so many cool birds to identify. Beautiful, peaceful, and nice HB locals. No bikes allowed.

easy hike. great views from the top to the lake. you will have to climb up rocks if you want the nice views. parking is scarce, be careful crossing the highway.

you can't really go up the trail with the regular car at least not with a 4 by 4. I recommend you come with either a dune buggy or a 4 by 4 truck.

This hike was intense. I will for sure do it again. The view is amazing .

Free climbed the 3rd tier. Super fun trail and not difficult at all considering half the trail is paved.

Great trail, gorgeous views. Can be a bit difficult if you’re not used to the altitude, or a bit out of shape.

Keep in mind the change in temperatures from the bottom to the top.

A little steep at some points but lots of shade throughout the trail and quite a few resting spots. The rocks are great for climbing and provide a gorgeous view of the lake.

Me and my boyfriend run here ever morning and we love it, it’s so peaceful and beautiful! Love love love!!!!

Great hike - well maintained and generally well marked trail (tho the All Trails app was definitively helpful); gorgeous views along the way, nice diversity of plants trees rocks and bushes. We had a bald eagle soaring above us for a while which was awesome. Took us 2 hrs to the top and maybe 1:40 back. Nice mix of sun and shade for us. You need an Adventure Pass to park which costs $5 and is available just a mile up the road at the Fawnskin Market. Highly recommended hike.

Did the Devil's backbone on the way up, came down Baldy Bowl trail. Coming down was a killer. But a great challenging hike!

Simply beautiful

Falls might b year round here. 10/18 still a nice flow. Fire road all up until falls area. Trail remains fairly easy. Id recommend this hike to everyone of all levels of hiking. Can’t wait to bring my little ones here. Rock climbed up to top of falls... was too much fun but a bit challenging (advanced hikers only please) may be tricky for some...
Very easy to find parking
Seen signs of car break ins but not today. (FYI)
Rr @ trail head
Lots of places to camp.

Great quick hike with my dog , beautiful scenery and low temperatures... bring sweater and water...

on Castle Rock Trail

Definitely not an easy hike but it is do-able if you take your time. Towards the end you have to do a little ‘rock climbing’ to get to the top of castle rock but the view is well worth it! I found a long hiking stick up there and it helped me be stable while coming back down. I got a little lost coming down like some people said because the trail isn’t marked well but if something looks like a path it should take you back down. Hopefully haha

We weren’t expecting nudists at the hot spring but the trail was fun, challenging and had spectacular views.

Awesome experience! I recommend it

1st of all there's a gate that's locked. Once you find a way around you will need a vehicle with high-clearance to reach the top. Nobody said that in these comments so unless you want to waste time & money to go out and discover this disappointment like we did then listen up. Booo!

A great quick Sunday morning hike. The incline initially is a great workout. Mostly paved and a small area of dirt with a step crossover. Great area for meditation not too many people.
