Beautiful setting! I’m not much of a runner but the dirt part of the trail was pretty flat and I was able to do some jogging. Quick little trail but worth the visit. I also visited many of the other trails and sight seeing areas while there.

Beautiful place to go to! Walk further down another trail and you can get to Martha’s falls and jump off cliffs!! Great adventure

The falls are pretty but the crowds of tourists ruin a lot of the experience

Simply Beautiful. Trekked down to Martha's Falls. Our dog, Ringo, enjoyed his very first trail experience. Looking forward to coming back.

Short trail. Beautiful falls. The drive on the canyon rim is gorgeous (pun). The gorge is very deep with shear rock walls. Great place to explore. This is the grand canyon east!

A beautiful water fall that is easy to get to. You can chose to ride right up to it or hike for the information building (bridge trail). You can go on top of the waterfall and swim and get as close as 50ft from the tip of the water fall. I went with a four yr old and he loved it very much.

Perfect time of the year to go (June) especially after all the rain. The falls were beautiful!

Beautiful! When you go after significant rain, you'll see several smaller falls and beautiful rushing creeks.

This trail was definitely easy enough for two dogs to tag along. One dog is around the age of 1 years old and the other a 11 week old puppy and they were able to do it! Then took them to Marsha's Falls which was awesome! A must see!

If you are looking to go cliff jumping, goes to Martha's falls. This place isn't for cliff jumping. There is a gravel parking lot and it's about a 15 minute hike to the Hippy Hole (spot where locals go cliff jumping).

Beautiful views of the waterfall.

We went here in November and sadly everything was dry. We and several others actually walked where the waterfall was usually flowing which was kinda cool. But I bet when it is flowing it is breathtaking!

Always good to go somewhere during the summer and be able to go swimming.

The water felt amazing after the hot hike down. Not much rain lately so the water level is way down. Hike down to falls was fairly easy. Hike back up was a little more difficult.

Great hike. Getting to the bottom isn't so bad. The swimming holes are great. Even my baby loved being in the water. But omg that climb back up is rough if you aren't in shape. We have been going since I was a kid. Definitely worth it :)

Just wow!

easy hike down to water. I went Saturday 11\7 and it was a bit rainy, however the water levels were high and great for kayaking.

Hiked down to Martha Falls/Hippie Hole. Not a long hike and a great place for a swim.

Beautiful little place. Great to do some swimming, but can get super crowded on a nice day.
