Pretty easy hike! The end is pretty neat to see with the hieroglyphics and the water (when there is water). We've done this hike twice and once there was a lot of water in the water fall. Very beautiful! Kid friendly and dog friendly!

Nice, easy trail. No water at the falls right now, but still worth the short hike!

There's wasn't many bees until we got to the water at the end near the water. Overall a great hike for beginners or families.

Great hike. Didn’t see any bees. But lots of people as we were hiking back to parking lot. Even one with a dog off leash.
