Hikes this trail today (5/10/18) with a class of 4th graders.

Easy hike..paved half way with solid dirt trails.

Last portion are cut out rock steps and a few large boulders.

Gentle incline kn several spots.

A lot different from 20 years ago when I was here last.

Easy hike, go during the week. Usually overly crowded on the weekends. Rude city hikers, trashing trails, trashing rest sites instead of walking 5ft to a trash can and trampling vegetation off the trails.

easy hike nice all around. the waterfall area is a great place to chill.

area is closed for power line repair

Clean Trail with plenty of views. There was no waterfall to be seen as it was so dry, however. To and from took about an hour and fifteen

Great overall trail, getting to see a variety of the park. The wash was coated with bugs and lots of rabbits.

This is a tough hike, but I would classify it as between moderate and hard because of the length. Beautiful scenery, good amount of wildlife, climbing over smooth boulders, this hike offers a constantly changing experience. Highly recommended!!

A great medium difficulty trail! It was a cool, breezy day—just perfect. If you’re there in the summer, try to get there early in the morning. Although there are many benches to rest on, there is very little shade.

its challenge, some turns are poorly marked.

love the new experience

paved and well marked beginner's trial. To catch the waterfall, there must be rain the previous day.

early morning track, its too hot in the afternoon due to no shade in summer

It can be cold in the morning at the beginning of the hike in the canyon, the later part of the trial is exposed to the sun and should be avoided in the afternoon in the summer heat.

Exactly 9 miles. Took us about 41/2 hours with stopping and exploring several time.
We left on Waddell trail, took it to ford canyon , then willow trail, then to mesquite, which took us back to Waddell.
We loved some boulder climbing. We saw a couple ground squirrels, and birds. We saw a lot of what we think was bobcat poop.
Overall all a very fun trail. The obstacles at the beginning make it exciting. Some high drops- do not recommend with kids.

very easy trail. mostly paved. there must be heavy rain in order to have the waterfall flowing. good for kids. this is a popular trail so there are quite a few people coming and going.

Nice, easy hike, pretty scenery but crowded. Nice after a rain when the waterfall is running.

It’s a beautiful hike. I highly recommend hiking the north leg of the loop first. We did that and there were big boulders to climb on as the trail mostly followed a wash in that part. It was a very gradual incline that way as well. When we got to the high point of this loop, we were actually shocked at how much elevation we gained. The remaining part of the loop down was the most scenic and it was beneficial to be facing east the entire way down. The first part on the north side was very much closing you into the canyon and there weren’t a lot of views. The trail is beautiful though and it feels very unspoiled. The only hard part about it was the distance and would be hard because of the heat in the summer.

Great hike up to the dam. Not a good hot weather hike in my opinion. Expect some large boulder climbing.

Easy, family trail. Great for young kids. There is also a small playground just across the street of the trailhead entrance.

Easy and scenic. If you think about it, casually walk past petroglyphs is pretty amazing. Take your time and look at them.

super easy, short and sweet trail. the water fall wasn’t flowing when we visited but the rocks and the views were still beautiful.

Easy stroll, great views and pictures.

Awesome hike!

easy. will do again

Easy family friendly hike. Very popular so come early to avoid the crowds.

Wanted an easy hike just to get out of the house and got just that. the falls weren't running, but it was still nice to see and felt good to get moving. Definately more of a nature walk than anything, and would recommend for just that.
