Overall an easy trail with a slightly challenging section above the fall, where one has to downclimb some tree roots. I'd hike it clockwise if I were to do this trail again.

It’s pretty good! There is one part where you have to climb a bit, and my kids love it!

Easy hike with not lot of elevation. The trail is clear all the way to the falls. Went on a Friday with day pass so the traffic was pretty low.

HikingGreat!

We did this hike today and loved it. I'd rate it more easy rather than moderate. Didn't really notice too many bugs at all, which was nice. You do need to go online starting at 6am to get a day pass (not cost). For our YouTube review of this trail: https://youtu.be/hfgQX-9o_rU

Parking was a challenge, but otherwise a beautiful relatively easy hike

Great day and trail was nice. First time we did the East trail loop. Terrain was moderate at the top, where you head towards the falls, but in pretty good condition and less travelled than the main trail.

HikingGreat!

Hiked with our 9 mos old baby today! Easy trail from East Canyon Trail entrance. Some steepy hill and a bit slippery from the rain on our way down to the lower falls. Got a nicer view from the restricted area.

Great bang for your buck, much more beautiful than anticipated, and my 2007 Lexus ES 350 wasn’t waiting too long in the parking lot for us to finish !

Went on a Monday and the Gold Creek Parking lot was full at 9:30 am. People who arrived after were parking on the shoulder of the main road in, up to a 15 minute walk from the trailhead. By 2pm, there were dozens of cars lined up to get into the park.

Just went yesterday and had such a great experience! There is a relatively steep downhill section where you have to climb down rocks and roots, and having a big pack on my back didn't help. But overall, it was a very peaceful hike. Mosquitoes were not bad at all.

A teeny bit muddy but overall great hike! We had a great time at the water fall and then the climb was fun!

was a great hike overall, the only difficulties were the loose rocks for half the trail as well as the streams you have to cross over. make sure you wear your waterproof hiking boots! i liked that there was not tons of mosquitoes.and the scenery was amazing. it was exciting crossing the log ramp by the waterfall and its cool that it branches off into other trails so you can really customize your experience.

Great straight forward hike, a bit muddy with no good way around in spots, some good inclines but nothing too crazy. Don’t bring shoes you want to keep pristine!

Easy trail along the river. Could get muddy after the rain. We arrived there at 10am but the parking was already full so we had to park at the side of the road. We saw a cute chipmunk on the hike. https://youtu.be/0pkYmkVz38U

Wednesday July 1st, 2020 at 8am - A few bugs, if you keep moving they don't bother you much. Had to take a different route then on the map as some people coming the other way said it wasn't safe. More technical then I thought it would be in some parts, but we made it with my 8 and 5 year old. Probably would just do the Gold Creek Trail next time as it is much easier and you get the same views really. Very wet and muddy, but still a good hike.
