Absolutely loved it, perfect little hike especially in the cooler months when there’s snow on the mountain so you get more water coming down the falls. 100% recommend

This trail was beautiful! It only took my an hour and 20 minutes to get there, but I sure didn’t want to leave! The falls are beautiful right now.

Great choice if you’re looking for an uphill workout - lots of steps. Views are wonderful and the waterfall is a nice treat at the end.

It’s not too bad of a hike. It inclines for awhile until you get up to the waterfall. It’s dried up right now 9/7/19. Fun hike and great pictures.

desert flowers were in full bloom in the rain last week helped so that the fall would have at least a little trickle to it

It was a great region to hike. There was a lot of bloom, a nice breeze and not too traffic. I did Wreath Falls one day and the tank trail the other. Both had step climbing but nothing technical.

Actually falls are spur trail off Douglas Springs. Great hike, trail was in excellent shape and well marked. Nice views and lots of wild flowers. Not much water at the falls. But overall the hike was worth it for the nice views. Would do again!

Very nice trail to the somewhat anticlimactic falls yesterday. Lots of stair-like terraces ... almost 3 miles of them!

The trail was in great shape and a lot of wild flowers were in bloom. Not a lot of water flowing over the waterfall. Trail is rated moderate, but with the steep inclines and total elevation climb to the falls, I’d rate it closer to hard compared to other moderate trails I’ve hiked. We saw a lot of hikers that never made it to the falls due to the severe uphill hike.

Great hike for right around the corner. I was able to run the wide path in areas. Ideal to go after rain for more water flowing. Awesome hike.

Very pretty with everything in bloom and green from the winter rain. Falls were flowing but not a huge stream. Shade at the falls is great for a break

Great hike on this trail, very well marked. A lot of up hills to get to the waterfall it was more like 3.3to the waterfall . We ended up with 6.60 when done. No shade on trail. Bring plenty of water. The waterfall will cool you off.

Amazing afternoon/evening hike. We headed out at 3 and spent an hour at the falls. Back to the car at dusk after watching a beautiful sunset as we hiked/ran down. The falls were running and beautiful! Can’t wait to try this hike again to see how long the water runs.

Note: this is actually a part of the Douglas Spring Trail. You start at the Douglas Spring Trailhead, and end at the Bridal Wreath Falls. A lot of elevation throughout the trail, walking on steps as you ascend. Beautiful views throughout, with the bonus of seasonal falls at the end.No shade, so bring something to protect your skin. Recommend this hike for scenic views.

Great trail! I got out around 8 and was getting busy on my way back in. Enjoyed the scenery!

Great hike that had a good amount of incline in addition to some good flat land! You walk through saguaro’s and then up to prairie, over some washes, and then you’re at the falls! Busy for a Sunday but parking was easy as it is at the end of a road! Would definitely do again.

Great trail for a winter hike. It was kinda warm today and that sucked. But the falls were running more than I’ve ever seen them before. Definitely a moderate hike. Good workout. Lots of wildflowers.

With all the rain fall in the area... the water was really flowing. The water fall was a great place to cool off and well worth the hike.

Hiked Feb. 25th. Lots of water going over the falls. Met many nice folks on the trail. Moderate but with elevation change. We are in our 70’s if that helps.

This trail is beautiful with amazing views at every turn. We were fortunate enough to be there while water was flowing and there was snow in the mountains surrounding. It’s a lot of steps up. Nice hike.
