HikingGreat!

Moderate difficulty - gradual incline but distance makes it tough, especially in 96F sun. Bring a lot of water. Trail could be marked better in certain areas in the creek and around seven falls. Very few hikers after the 2nd mile on a Friday morning start time.

Hot trail. No water, so we missed the falls. Go after a rain and you should see some falls. Still lots of pretty canyon views.

Most of this trail was just dry and hot. A little too long for me and the kids, age 10-32. We kept going, hoping for the waterfall around the next corner. It’s a long way. The fall area is beautiful but I wouldn’t do it again. Take lots of water.

Nice long well established trail. It got shady at the end, the creek crossings and waterfall at the end were nice.

My husband and I hiked this trail back in March on a rainy day. We were warned of rising water levels in the canyon. The trail was extra slick that day and we had a fun time hopping the rocks every time we crossed the water. The falls are beautiful even when it was gray and rainy out. Can’t wait to do it again sometime in the future and explore the falls a little more.

In from Wisconsin for the week and took this trail on for our first hike last Wednesday. Awesome trail and a rewarding destination at 7 falls. Some parts of the trail are hard to follow which added on some mileage— we were up in the 10 mile range getting back to our car. If you don’t start your hike before 7 be prepared to feel like fried bacon. Also water is a must there’s only one fill station at the beginning of the trip.
