Great winter hike. Make sure to look for the hieroglyphics on the left just before you get to the falls.

Loved this!! Did it with my 9year old daughter and it was a beautiful easy walk with a spectacular finish: only tip would be to be very cautious of the icy areas as it was very slippery on the walk back once the sun hit. Go early or in the afternoon to avoid slipping. A great winter hike.

Did this on an early morning in late October. It took a lot longer to get to the actual canyon than we expected (seemed like more than 500 m from the parking lot to me). We didn't go very far into the canyon but it was still a nice walk nonetheless. There are some nice views but nothing super spectacular.

There is a loud factory close to the trail which made the 1st part of the hike unappealing.
