I would recommend waiting till the water in the creek goes down so it's easier to hike through.
The other option is to walk along the creek, on the cliff above it. But we found it was hard to follow a proper trail because of the flood damage.
We crossed through the mountain to connect onto Door Jamb to find a clearer path.

We would go back and see this trail at another time.
But right now, I wouldn't recommend it.

The hike is along the creek bed, its a great leg work out because the terrain is loose but I wasn't overly captivated by the scenery. I made the trail more enjoyable by running the way back. It's a good trail if you're in a pinch and need a quick place to go.

Great for a short hike only took about 2 hours. Not recommended for young children as it's a bit scrambly at points also waterproof shoes are good as you'll be walking through the creek at points. a fun afternoon getaway :)

Very fun shorter size hike, you can follow the creek bed for a long way so know you limit and watch your time frame. Some small parts where you have to kinda scramble and keep good footing but super cool and worth it in the end!

Super cool hike! First part through the canyon you have to walk in the water a bit so wear shoes you can wear in water. Follow the creek through a narrow canyon then it opens up, at the end after 2 hours of hiking there are some rock pools, one is very deep with a 10ft natural waterslide into it, great for a hot day.
