Easy to moderate hike. Good views, easy to find & open before sunset is a big bonus.

Absolutely beautiful! Went when it was a bit too hot, but other than that it was awesome. Once I got down to the river I had a bit of a hard time finding where the trail picked up again but eventually got it (and got to soak my feet in the cold water).
