Short trail. Beautiful falls. The drive on the canyon rim is gorgeous (pun). The gorge is very deep with shear rock walls. Great place to explore. This is the grand canyon east!

The scenery was lacking. The trail itself needed some upkeep. There was a little bridge that went over a stream which was nice.

The leaves are just starting to change. This would be a beautiful hike when fall colors are at peak.

We had a good time. Parts of the trail wasn't marked well. Near primitive camp spot. Looked like people took down and tied up. In another area. I would like to go when the falls are flowing. They where all dry right now.

A beautiful water fall that is easy to get to. You can chose to ride right up to it or hike for the information building (bridge trail). You can go on top of the waterfall and swim and get as close as 50ft from the tip of the water fall. I went with a four yr old and he loved it very much.
