Beautiful trail. Was difficult to stay on the trail sometimes as there was not many signs up the trail. The waterfall was also not running today. It was still a nice hike though! And the parking was free today.

Planned to do this hike today but there is no water at the falls. You can cut the trail length in half by taking the shuttle from the visitor center to the trail head for a 10$ per person fee rather than walk from the visitor center.

This was a challenging but fairly good trail to hike. Very Rocky and need to have lots of water and good pair of shoes. Very beautiful views and amazing wildlife. the pools have tons of fish so if you not scared to swim with them they will nibble on you.

Very easy hike, flat and little incline. End of August little rain so all the pools weren’t filled/running however, water was nice and refreshing. Great views the entire way up and back. Careful for rattlesnakes! Bring lots of water!

Doing during the summer you better have plenty of water and take a good break at the falls enjoy it cause the walk back to the car never seemed so far away got home and past out for 3 hours heat exhaustion damn but worth it so worth 1st trail I’ve ever done saw lots of cool stuff there’s a snake in one of the ponds so watch out be safe folks

There are a few places where the trail cuts across the wash and you need to keep eyes peeled for trail markers. At one of the early crossings in particular I was glad to have my downloaded map at hand! Nice maintained trail, and water in the pools at seven falls in August. It was nice to take a dip before returning back. Definitely bring snacks and plenty of water, I passed more than one person run out or nearly run out of water on the trail!

Good easy/moderate trail. This time of year (August) there is no flowing water, so not quite as pretty as it would be at other parts of the year. No shade by late morning though, bring 3L of water and shoes with good ankle support. I am a experienced hiker and it took me 3.5 hours round trip with about a 30 minute break at the top.

Great hike!! No water really,, some nasty looking water at the fall ponds only.. but great hike overall, got very hot coming back!! But made it!!

Fun hike! Not to hard or long and a great reward once you get to the falls! The water was cold at the top pool but it was refreshing! The lower the pools the warmer water. Not a ton of shade so bring extra sunscreen and hat! Also recommend taking the shuttle to the trail head so you don’t have to walk in additional 4 miles down the road.

My favorite place to be 7 Falls. Although easy to get off track when crossing creek back and forth a few times to get back on trail, needs better trail markings. Still love the destination

I would recommend this trail to everyone. Not very difficult except for the length. There is no shade along this trail. I suggest to bring at least 3L of water and to leave early. I used my national park pass but there is an entry fee of $5. I did get a little lost on the way back (you cross the river many times) but the all trails app got me right on track. There is no water in the river so I did not get wet until I reached the falls and took a swim- the water was great. About 3 hours of hiking. Enjoy!
