We did it while there was still snow and the water was ice. It was a slippery hike, but worth it to climb into the small dugout after the falls.

A good hike for someone out of shape! Not too challenging, but can good exercise. Would recommend for kids over 8, as I wouldn't take my little ones. Once you're in the canyon, you don't hear the refinery and it's really pretty. Getting closer to the waterfall, the rocks make it quite slippery so make sure your shoes have good grips. The pictographs are easy to miss, but are on a corner on the left hand side as you walk up the canyon. Dogs are welcome, but I wouldn't bring mine as it's so rocky and I don't think would be easy on her paws.

Got swarmed by mosquitos. You have to hike the first 90% to get to the pretty stuff. Not worth it.
