I did this trail a couple weeks ago starting at the Alabama trailhead. It was fairly dry and I only had to worry about wet boots trying to cross into the amphitheater. There was no waterfall at the actual bowl of the gorge. There was still plenty of water to cool off in, though. It was 3.5mile downhill hike and 3.5 miles uphill. It doesn’t seem difficult going in, but man-oh-man, will it test you going out. Its a good workout. I’ve done harder inclines. I would rate this as a moderate/strenuous hike and very well marked. Happy Trails!
