IF you follow the trail loop as outlined on the map, you will undoubtedly agree this isn’t an easy trail UNLESS you are a triathlete and/or used to hiking in the Rockies. What the heck? Easy going back up to the top on the Taylor Mountain trail? Come on. Really? If you are in average shape, this is a workout...again, the whole loop as diagrammed above.

Poorly maintained and apparently not so frequently used. There are prettier hikes. Also, longer than 3.1 miles.

I tried giving this a 1 star but my review was deleted, trail markings we're confusing, I'm not sure I completed the correct trail. trails cross each other, or unmarked trails spur off at different intervals. was a fun hike but not a great place to log completed trails.

My son and I had a great time hiking this and another trail. not to much wildlife but it was the middle of the day, however we did see deer tracks. I have to agree that the signage could have been better, also parking, we saw trailhead signs but no pulloffs, we did see where other vehicles had pulled off on the side of the road and we did the same. Overall 4stars.

Should have read Marshal's review. Everything was peachy until we reached the waterfall rocks. What the actual hell. We finally backtracked to the road and called it a day.

The trail was very poorly marked and somewhat overgrown once you got to the cascade part of the trail. As a result there were several times that we got off the trail and had to backtrack two or 3 times. The biggest problem is I was following the trail on my phone but at the bottom where you start up the hill and along the rock where the water should flow, the trail indicated here is not accurate. The line follows the rocks/water flow but the trail actually only crosses the path and then heads uphill north of the path and somewhat parallel to the rocks for a while then heads north to the "bear cave" and runs in the middle of the loop.

The trails we hiked were not kept up or clearly marked.

Varied terrain made it interesting. Only one section that I would call difficult. Signage could have been better. There were parts that I didn't know what trail I was on.

There wasn't actually a waterfall, but it was still a beautiful trail! Lots of beautiful flowers, and it wasn't too hard to hike. Went geocaching and found the "Bear Cave cache"... So much fun :)

Well, there was no real waterfall to speak of. It was a good exercise and plenty of wild blackberries to eat along the mostly uphill hike. It is mostly shaded and is nice scenery. There are a few places for your dog to get fresh water, on top of what you'll want to bring for her. It's definitely not the trail for you when you are in poor shape (my husband and I struggled a bit and we are not in awful shape) but my 15 year old was unphased. Next time we go it will be on a day with MUCH less humidity.

I had a good time on the trail. The cliffs and watershed was nice to see. The trail goes down next to the watershed but stays on a rock ridge where I had lunch up high and a view of the hills as well. Nice trail. This specific trail was marked really well. The fall leaves could have messed me up as the trail was covered.

Even though this trail was small. I came close to a lot of deer. They were beautiful. Ive never been so close to deer. It was a very enjoyable experience.

I enjoyed this trail. It was a small cave but it was fun to see. Cave trail also had nice views and was an easy trail for a family. It runs into Loop Trail.

the waterfall was a disappointment. Although the rest of the trail was great and we had lunch sitting below the cliffs. It connects to Old Still Path.
