Technical rocky trail, good climbs, sometimes insects get after you (stings, bites) in the areas with dense vegetation. MTBers help take Card if he trail, but watch out for them.

There was so much trash. Very sad

Great trail if you like a good little hike but don’t mind getting a bit lost. Most of the trails are not marked until you get to the top. Several places are pretty steep but not too bad. The bottom portions are nice with plenty of shade. Not a place for children.

Definitely easy to maneuver and there is always an easier way down those trains.

Beautiful view but like a previous review, there is a bunch of trash and way too much broken glass all over the trail. No markers either.

Nice trails, love all the switch backs. The lack of trail markers wasn’t a big deal to me because there’s a map at the trailhead. This place could be so beautiful if it weren’t for all the trash. Unfortunately, we share this planet with lazy fucks that don’t respect the beauty that surrounds us.

Lots of trash, no trail markers, not appealing.

Went with my husband. First thing we noticed was all the broken glass everywhere. It was ridiculous. Then the garbage all over, and I usually stop and pick the trash up but there was too much on this trail. There was 1 trash can that we came across along the trail. It’s unmarked as well. We passed 2 groups of people who were trying to get down to the water. We lived in CO for 7 years and hiked numerous trails within the springs and have never seen as much garbage and broken glass. We call it Hep C falls now. It was disappointing. My husband and I agreed, if the city took any time at all clearing some of the paths, marking some trails, and cleaning up this place it could be great.

Would be a favorite trail if it wasn’t for the trash and glass. I wish they could clean it up. :(

Love it

Been hiking this with the dog for a couple of months now. Great trail. There are bikers so keep an eye out. They are good about watching for you too and share the trails well.

Only wish was more folks would clean up after themselves.

Lots of broken glass! Not a big deal if you aren't bringing dogs. Lots of trash too.

The trail itself was ok. But the park as a whole was so dirty.

The trail was so rocky and steep. I didn't care for all of the trash laying around. Definitely wouldn't go to this trail alone. The only attraction is the tiny waterfall.

The trail is pretty treacherous for young children. Do bring plenty of water; however, it is sad how people throw their trash everywhere. It is cool seeing the alligator gar jumping above the surface to catch bugs by the waterfalls.

I was hiking with trekking poles with a girlfriend that had no poles. (I'm 62 & female) it was dawn on a Sunday morning in August. I loved it! so rocky and down down down down, until we were tired...then it was up up up up up up to get back! :) this trail is for bicyclers. I'm sure it's awesome for them, but hiking is fun on it too. so we would listen for a bike coming and we'd step off the path. we did that maybe 3 times. we talked to a trail runner also. very shaded. I learned I'm gonna get knee pads so I would have more confidence to go fast. fast it fun on these trails!

I give it 2 stars because the trash is out of hand. If it was clean I would have given 5 stars. The trails are very shaded and great. But it's just way to trashy very sad.

Fairly steep, unmarked trails with a few small.waterfalls, nice water birds, marsh and lake views. You'll.use the sound of water to.find your way down and sunlight to.find your way up. I got there at 7 am and did 1.7 miles of trail.wandering without seeing anyone. Saw a lot more people at 8:45 am when.I was returning. Such a shame how much trash there was in some places but I still think it was worth it. Bring a bandana to wipe the cobwebs off your face.

Don't waste your time walking this unmarked trail to an eventual wasteland of washed up garbage, littered banks. Very disappointed and hope this area will be policed soon.

It's really hard to know where you're going, and unless you're okay with exploring and being a little lost, it could get a bit sketchy. I really enjoyed the waterfalls but this park needs to be cleaned up. There is a lot of trash and some of it makes the river look and smell bad. Other than that, I love the inclines on this trail. There are some parts where you have to climb, and that's pretty cool. However, I'm not entirely sure this is the trail I was on, or if it was one of the trails that branch off of it. Regardless, I had a great time at this park.

All the trails are poorly marked, if at all. You never know how far you will end up going. Park isn't maintained well and there was trash everywhere. However, the trails were challenging. Mix between loose rocks and packed dirt. Several steep inclines.
