Great trail under the trees. Cross the stream at least 30 times total. Be sure to stop and look up time to time to see the spectacular cliff faces. The end of the trail is worth the hike.

Spectacular view!
Probably dangerous for small children/ pets off leash, as there is a very narrow path along rock face.
Yes, don't follow your GPS. It takes you the wrong way. 9530 is the right road.
You also need 4X4 to get up to the trailhead. It's all gravel and lots of big rocks near the top.
Would definitely do it again :)

Great trail. The trail is long but is mostly in the shade which helps when the sun's out. air sure to go all the way to end when the Canyon almost meet and all that is left is the creek. Get their early as parking fills up, we did this hike after doing the boyton vortex so it was a little later in the morning. If you have a national park pass, it won't work here, bring $10 cash for parking. Enjoy the hike!

Great hike! Amazing views, easy walk. Was able to do it with my 2 1/2 year old on my back. He loved it, too. Lots of good spots to stop and eat lunch and hangout/rest. Hope to be back!

Arrive early. At 10:30 on Saturday parking lot was full and line of cars waiting to get in.

Lots of people. Other hikes you go long periods without seeing people; not the case here! Always people around until you get nearer to end, and even then there's plenty of folks. Everyone was super nice though.

Beautiful trail. You will definitely get wet while hiking this. We got there at 8:45 am on a Saturday in August and people were already parked in the lot. It was a great hike.

Relaxing, scenic hike for families. Parking costs $10, but the trip was worth it.

Was very pretty. A little close to the road on some spots but still great. Even took my dog and he liked it too. :)

Best trail ever! I love the creek crossings and the scenery is great.

The views are almost unreal. The trail itself is easy and short. It's true that it requires some caution to get into the actual cave, but I wouldn't characterize it as treacherous. It's for sure manageable for an adult.

Previous reviews are absolutely correct that GPS will lead you astray at the end. You need to stay on 525C until you see a spilt to the right for 9530. It's a little over a half mile drive after that.
