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

Love this trail. Every time I do it it’s a new adventure. If you have the time and skill I recommend going up to the look out. The view is beyond worth it.

Super easy hike, and it’s really cool to see the rock climbers along the way. It’s definitely worth it to take the inclines trail to go up to the top of the waterfall - then you can stand on the edge and look down and see the entire thing. Very beautiful!

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 .

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.
