Now We Goin' Map

The end of the trail is pretty tough. The way down is cake. Nice views.

We parked near the trail head. Sun and snow made beautiful pictures. Creek runs on the side of the trail. We turned around half way, because couldn’t cross the river. Main waterfall is very pretty, however more people. While hiking to Waterfall was not a sole on a Sunday. Going downhill on way back.

My favorite trail ever! It felt like we were walking through Narnia. Not many people on the trail and the views from the top were AMAZING! There's a bit of a climb, but it's pretty gradual. I went in July and September and it was great both times!

This is the first trail I hiked in SLO and I keep going back. I’m in love with the uphill push to the top. My first time to the top it took just over 45 minutes. Last week my time was 38 minuets. It is what you make it but I prefer the rush to the top and enjoy the way down.

Lots of people and dogs out enjoying this beautiful day. Had to take a side trail to the river for my pooch. great trail for the family.

This hike is a must! It's extremely steep towards the end and you're basically climbing up and over rocks to get to the top. So be prepared! Once you're at the top the view is amazing! Sunsets ups here are to die for!

This is a great trail from Fall until hit starts hitting the 90s. It's even better after a light snow. Full trail starts at Cedar Valley but if you want a shorter hike then there is another trailhead further up HW41 that is about the halfway point to red rock falls at the end of this trail.

Great hike! Trail is very well maintained, easy to figure out parking. Overall amazing views. And it is a great moderate workout!

Nice view of SLO!

so pretty, especially with the light snow we got covering the ground!

Perfect Sunday hike. Subtract .4 miles from our total due to initially missing the initial right turn up the hill. There was a lot of snow going uphill but was not difficult to walk through and most had melted on our return down the hill. I would rate this hike as easy due to the very gradual climb out to the watch tower. 10.3 total.

My favorite hike when I go to SLO!!

Great trail, beautiful view of the city mountain range. Been here 5 times and will definitely come back.

Loved this trail! The views were amazing. Lots of inclines, definitley got my heart pumping.

Gorgeous views! Beautiful day. The weather was perfect going up.

Was a very nice hike. Didn’t feel as long as it is. We did have to deal with some snow flurries early on but worth it!

I greatly enjoyed this hike. It was slightly challenging, but nothing too difficult. There is also a cave! 0:

Extremely peaceful and quiet trail with an amazing view at the end! Just some patches of snow throughout as of 2/16/18. I highly recommend

Great campsites near the lake.

Beautiful trail. Some steep inclines but manageable with rest areas, maybe too steep for little ones. Wooden balcony/lookout point with benches at water fall/midpoint.

This is a pretty hard hike. At the end the trail includes climbing over rocks so not the best for young children. But the view from the top is incredible and absolutely worth it. It took a lot longer that I anticipated so I recommend bringing more water than you think you need.

Steep midway but view at the top was worth it! Park on the road to avoid the fee.

Trail is pretty easy. And the view is great. Great payoff for a relatively low elevation gain.

Great short hike, it’s a drive to get too for most people but anyone with dedication can go there for a good day hike. The drive discourages the lazy people so no teenagers and very little people. Great view, kept nice.

Nice easy trail. Great views from the top.

It a very easy trail, simple loop. It’s a great walk in spring

We started on Cedar Valley Dr.. nice hike not to crowded in the am but got busy as the day went on.... A few changes in elevation other then that pretty easy .. waterfalls were pretty cool

It was very steep, but completely worth it! My husband and I are pretty out of shape and did Ok with a few breaks. Will definitely do it again.
