It was beautiful! Didn't get to do whole trail. Hubby doesn't like to hike a lot.

I took the kids hiking on this trail. It was beautiful and waterfall was flowing from the recent rains. We were a little disappointed the visitor center was closed so we could use the restroom or find a map or buy stuff in general like drinks or snacks.

good for families with small children

Nice trail for a family hike. Not too challenging, well marked and decent views along the way to the end view of the dam.

This trail is deceiving. Initially it starts out appearing mundane but about a quarter mile in it becomes spectacular. Well worth it to go to the up to the viewing deck for the dam at the end.

You can drive all the way to the top if you just want a view of the dam. The hike up is decent from the visitor center but most of the view of the river below will be blocked by trees in the summer. The bluffs overlooking the trail are still a nice enough view to make up for it. I didn't even mind the vultures circling me like they knew something I didn't.

Seems I did this one a week too early. The creek would be really nice with water in it....thinking it would have been a pretty cascade.
