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

Easy hike, not too muddy if you go earlier in the day so it's still mostly frozen.

Nice trail. Quick out and back. Start and end still pretty slick in the mornings, the frozen waterfall tucked back in the rock was pretty wicked. Might get your feet wet getting back there. :-)

Nice hike! Quite easy. The only downside was how close the trail is to the highway near the beginning. We went at the beginning of December during a weekday and it was almost completely empty, which was great!

Great trail for kids, very easy and lots of nature scenery along the way. Very busy as well.

Very easy but rewarding only if you climb the creek to view the waterfall

Excellent year round hike. Trail gets packed in winter. Easy for kids as well. Only downside is very busy on summer weekends.

Amazing family hike.
Only thing I didn't like was the first 1k is right off the highway so the noise was a distraction from the scenery.
We took our four kids ranging from 6-15. They loved every minute of it. Even the wet muddy trail after the snowfall!
I felt like it was a perfect amount of elevation for the kids. The scenery constantly changing. And of course the many many bridges were lots of fun. They weren't bored one minute!
We will definitely go back to check it out in the spring / summer!

A short but relaxing hike through a valley. Most days you will catch rock climbers scaling the cliff walls.
