After a grueling hike 2 days ago, looking for something a bit more manageable. The first 1.5 miles or so are a gentle walk through some new growth and many downed old trees. Once you reach the signs say that the trail is not maintained beyond that point, I strongly recommend you continue up either the left trail to the top of the central cliff wall face or the right side toward the towering falls on the vertical face to the right. It is a loop, so you can go around. You will be rewarded by a magnificent waterfall through the center of the canyon and many new falls that cannot be seen from the end of the maintained trail. Views of valley below and many peaks around are stunning. Many different geological features and just plain gorgeous. A new addition to my top 5 favorite hikes.
