One of my favorite places in the world! So lucky to live so close to such an unique place. The bed of the waterfall is unreal. Must go see!!!

Took my kids 5, 9, and 12 years old and a great outing on and off the trails. Don't forget to bring hammer!

Fun hike, lots of rock to climb. Great off trail exploring too

Definitely for the rock scramble lovers

This is fantastic for families - it's a short walk combined with rock exploring and hammering. What fun for kids.

The only downside is that the rocks are hard for 3 and under to maneuver by themselves and the actual walking trail has a lot of poison ivy so you have to be really mindful of your kids wandering around the greenery. Bring an ergo or kid backpack if your kid is 2 or under. If you have an older kid, have them carry their own snack and hammer and water because they will wander all over those rocks far and away from you.

Go early in the day and enjoy the place to yourself. The rocks definitely seem more magical when it's just you and the rocks. Later in the day on the weekend it is super busy and then it's just loud hammering. :(

NOT EASY- unless you are young or fit. If walker walking across rocks you have to have balance and ability to adjust your footing. We had a blast during our 90 minute adventure.

it was fun and very beautiful

Waterfalls were better than the rock garden! Our hammer wasn't much fun but climbing on large graffiti'ed boulders and crossing waterfalls definitely saved this trip ;)

Although the waterfall was dry it was still a good hike, but a little difficult to stay on the correct path. Always a nice place to explore!

This is a one of a kind place!! It was so cool to listen to the sounds of the rocks! The hiking trail around the rocks was good but short. I'm sure the waterfall is more amazing in the springtime.

Spectacular if there's enough rain recently for a decent waterfall. Recommend bringing some good gripping shoes and gripping gloves for rock scrambling. Not for those with a terror of snakes, which occasionally scamper off.

River was completely dry. Rocks really rang with different sounds depending on which rock you hit. Pretty cool place!

SO perfect for everyone! Bring hammers and after playing at the boulder field check out the trails and water fall... We go regularly and my kiddies love it

Updated 8/27/2016: We have been to this park quite a few times and today was our first trip back in 4 years. The boulder field is still an interesting stop for all ages.

To make the hike to the waterfall area more interesting ( best when creek is dried out) we'd recommend going all the way through to the end of the Boulder field and then take the trail toward the right. The terrain will start to get more rocky and begin to slope downhill toward the dry creek bed. If the area is dried up you can sit and enjoy a snack on the boulders or if you are able, climb the terrace walls to the right. From there you can take the dry creek through one or two more sections of terraced climbing all the way to the base of the waterfall area.

Climb up the right side of the waterfall back onto the trail. You will loop back around to where you started without having to go back through the Boulder field.
As an alternate option, after climbing back up the falls head left to continue up the creek bed for some nice views from the top of the falls. Then Continue for a short while longer up the creek bed and you will find an area to your left where visitors have created several leantus out of fallen branches.

A nice, short hike with some interesting views along the way. If you don't stop for too many photos ( like we did ) you could easily get this suggested loop done in less than 1 hour .

One of the best parts of the trail is getting to the stream and waterfall. However, it is not easily marked. Also, not too bad of a trail of you are in your 20's, I'm 35 and it was harder than I remembered. Felt bad that my 7 year old really had to struggle. If you plan on scrambling rocks, bring some firm grip gloves, and the best non slip shoes you can. In the shaded areas under the trees the rocks are slippery.

Fun! The trail is short, yes, but it was still a nice walk / hike. :)
