Did this quick hike today (12-8-17) and I have to say I enjoyed it. The bugs are brutal at times though, I didn't believe the reviews I read before going and wrote them off as city slickers whining but they were right, those flies are persistent. Other than that it was just what I wanted for a quick day hike just to get out of Fresno for the day and recharge before finals next week. Practically flat the whole way and a super easy trail to follow literally just following the flume but walking the tops of the flume gave it just enough uniqueness to make it interesting. There's currently no water running in the flume other than stagnant puddles but the waterfall and pool at the end are flowing nicely.

Fairly easy hike. A couple short areas where it got steep but over all easy. Nice if time is short and want to go for a quick easy hike. Trail runs along creek for a short distance giving a really nice photo op.

Fun and easy hike with kids. Beautiful in the light snow. Road to parking lot icy but areas to pull off about 1/2 way up.

Fun trail. Very quick and easy. Took my (big) dog and was a breeze for him. Trail gets narrow towards the end so we had to let people pass us considering we had the dog. Went in September, late review. Not too much water falling.

it was longer than expected, a little over 6 miles from trail head to the lake but well worth it

Great hike but it's 7 miles up and back, not 5.5, from the gate after driving in 20 minutes on a dirt road from 168. Very inaccurate directions and trail length

Waterfall was partially iced up. Nature was beautiful

Beautiful views. Very difficult to navigate at first, but as soon as we found the trail it was an easy hike. Great for dogs and kids.
