A very enjoyable trail overall. Not much to see once you are at the top but the climb more than makes up for it. Do not be put off because it says that it's strenuous. It is manageable for people of average fit and not as strenuous as described. Great short trail if you have only a little time!

Beautiful hike upstream the whole way. Get there early to avoid crowds and it's a really nice hike!

A moderate hike. I wasn't as impressed by the falls at the end as others. A little difficult in some sections with little kids when you had to scramble over the rocks. I doubt I would do this hike again. I am more into hikes with a gorgeous view at the end.

Great place for a quick overnight hiking camping trip. I loved the crash camping style of many of the hiking locations. It really feels like you're in the middle of nowhere.

Only downside was the trash around the falls. It's a heavily trafficked spot during the day (not too many camp out) so some garbage accumulates.

Definitely enter from the western trailhead. The eastern trail has many downed trees from a storm and getting through requires crossing a quick moving stream a few times.
