Short and easy hike to a popular climbing area. Tons of sport climbing and bouldering.

Very nice walk/rock climbing as well. Traffic noise only for the first 5 min of the walk, then very beautiful views. Waterfall is stunning .

Great hike with the family, the 5 and 7 yr old grandchildren enjoyed all the bridges and sense of adventure

Beautiful waterfall at the end of the trail. We all enjoyed the trail. Nice and easy to follow. Lots of traffic. So cool to see the rock climbers.

Great easy hike, wooden log bridges add some fun. Not much of a waterfall though. It's more like a creek in a canyon but nice.

Great easy stroll. I'd like to do it again in the spring when the water is really running.

Great begginer hike. Fun to see the rock climbers so close. Would be lovely in the fall.

Really great beginner "hike." Got there around 10am and only passed two people on the trail up to the end. Had the whole little area at the end to ourselves besides two other people. Passed a ton of people on the way back. Way better to go early to avoid traffic. The bridges are really great. Lots of areas for photos

Great hike! Some parts were a bit narrow and you gotta be careful of the rocks. It sucks that you can't really see the waterfalls.

Fantastic scenery, not too difficult for the kids (age 8-11). The scramble to the falls after the last bridge is fun, challenging, and worth it in the end.

Really great for easy hikers who still want something a little more challenging than a packed down gravel path. We didn't see the waterfall because we weren't wearing the proper shoes to walk through the water, and my puppy was frightened by the running creek water, but next time we definitely will try to get in there to see it!
