HikingGreat!

Great trail. Well maintained. Good parking. My pup, a rat terrier, loved the hike but there is a pretty constant change in elevation. Be ready for the cardio! There isn’t a ton of room at the bottom but definitely worth the drive and view!!

HikingGreat!

Excellent “bang for your buck”. Short hike, but packed with stellar views from the side of the mountain. Definitely well worth the hour or so spent here.

Walking

1.3mi of gravel road. .1mi of trail to rock overlook. View of misc buildings. Sunset probably is nice over opposite ridge.

HikingGreat!

The trail was stunning - with lots of stops to enjoy wide vistas for viewing. Would recommend doing the trail counterclockwise - and going clockwise can be a little more treacherous coming down than going up

Nice trail, great rock top, but the view is of the rooftops of Highlands.

Hiking

Fantastic waterfall worth the effort. Easy going down, last 1/8 mile gets more technical- rooted, wet, steeper. 2 minor creek crossings which are easy. More moderate on the return- couple of stretches will elevate your heart rate, but they are short. Apple Maps got us right to trailhead.

Great trail! The real beauty is all the way at the bottom. So totally worth. 10/10 would do again.

One of our favorite trails. Quick walk up and view from Sunset Rock is amazing. Easy for children under 10.

If you love mountain vistas don’t miss this trail. We were lucky enough to see the falcons as well!

Mild hike with stunning views. Would recommend doing the trail counter clockwise - coming down going clockwise is not recommended for children or stability challenges individuals

Good loop hike! We took the gravel road up and the rustic route on the way back. Some amazing views. Pretty easy hike. Brought two dogs and they had a great time. Bring $3 in cash for parking.

HikingGreat!

Trail was well marked, up and downs throughout hike (not bad though), last quarter mile was a little steep and could be very slippery after a rain. A two stream crossings, which were manageable without getting wet. Great trail for dogs. Falls were beautiful and well worth the hike. Road to trail head is about 1.5 miles of gravel road from main turnoff.

Great easy hike with kids. A little muddy and tricky down close to bottom. Beautiful falls with a cool beach. Would be a great little swimming spot in the summer.

Beautiful views. When you get to top of gravel road go left to Sunrise Rock overlook or right to Sunset Rock overlook. We parked in front of Nature Center. My daughters(10&3) enjoyed it and it was easy for them.

Scenic drivingGreat!RockyWashed out

Walk up the trail. Don’t drive. I’ve seen 1 SUV stuck, 2 underbody panels and I’ve heard a local say they fell off down a incline. Walk up. Unless you have a knowledge of UTVing and off roading. The trail gets pinched in two spots for a 4x4 and there are 3 granite faces to make sure your in 4 low unless you want to fix your alignment prematurely

Great trail. Very easy on the way down and gorgeous views. More strenuous coming up but there are stairs so it’s not that hard. Definitely worth it.

It was awesome, the views were awesome! Although some of the places we went I thought it needed some hand rails. But it was super fun. By Carmen

We went counter clockwise, which is the steeper way up but I think it’s more interesting. For those that want an easy hike, could could go clockwise. It was icy and muddy in some areas, but we’ve had some rainy and then cold weather lately.

Kinda confusing in some parts where there are forks but the waterfall is amazing if u come after a rain storm. So fun even the dog loved it.
