This is less of a trail and more of a trudge your way up the river until you reach the falls scenario. There is little shade along the way, so beware in the warmer months. Please buy a permit and respect the land. A group that was already at the falls by the time we arrived were drinking and smoking, littering all over the trail. The waterfall is beautiful, but please respect it. The road to the trail is rough, so don't risk driving it in a low clearance car.

Amazing hike, beautiful waterfall in a beautiful canyon. Easy, but enough climbing over big rocks to make it feel like you’re getting exercise. Like others said, you WILL get wet. Which during the summer is probably pretty nice, but I went the weekend before Christmas and the water was freezing. HIGHLY recommend a car with 4 wheel drive to make it down the “primitive” road to the trailhead.

Gorgeous hike and waterfall , watershoes make it a breeze to hike. Contrary to videos on instagram and facebook the tribe prohibits swimming and diving.

Well marked trail and highly trafficked. Crosses the river many times, which is great on hot days to help cool off. Definitely wear shoes you don’t mind getting drenched as there is no possible way to reach the falls without wading through up to thigh high water ( depending on flow). Watch for rattlesnakes....

One of the best trails I've been on. It's rated as moderate but it was pretty easy. from start to finish your going to be crossing water constantly.

Like many others have said, it is hard to get into with a 4.4 mile drive down a road that doesn’t really get recognized by Apple maps. Once in, it doesn’t appear to be heavily trafficked even on a Sunday. I only saw 5 other hikers all day. I did trip alone, but wouldn’t again. No phone reception, very rocky. I could see that in the summer it would be very snake infested. All that said, it was beautiful and peaceful. Definitely worth doing at least once.

Beautiful hike for this time of year. I would recommend going on a weekday, less crowded. I would not take this hike alone, as you are walking through water at points and it is fairly easy to lose your footing and find yourself drenched. When we first started on this hike, I thought we were headed the wrong direction, but we were not. Wear shoes with some grip and easy drainage, and bring plenty of sunscreen and water. As others have mentioned, the price is somewhat worrisome. We happened to get a flat going down the steep rocky road to get to the trail, and with no reception and no one around, it kinda sucks. Make sure to plan ahead, and have fun!

As for a hike it’s a 5 Star but no walk in nature should cost $30. Hike is easy with some rock navigation. You do go across the river several times but it is not hard and is actually refreshing. This trail has been clean of trash which is nice to see. The water fall in Oct was flowing strong and there was a nice area to sit and enjoy it. I recommend this hike.

gorgeous area with a lot of river crossing thru and over slippery rocks. Its a little adventure. Make sure you have shorts and water shoes. A change of clothes is recommended for afterwards .
