An easy trail that takes you across and along the creeks pretty much the entire trail. There is a beautiful waterfall and then a cable bridge on the opposite end of the trail. Very pretty area, and moderately popular as everytime I've gone there there were plenty of others roaming around. A great area to explore and kill an afternoon.

first time out there was very pretty nice and peaceful the waterfall was beautiful.

I am recovering from shoulder surgery and this was an easy hike just to get out and get some fresh air. On a beautiful sunny day in the low 70s, you can imagine how popular this area is given that it's right in town. It was beautiful, though, and I appreciate all the signage to educate trail walkers about the various plants, trees, shrubs and history of the area. It was a nice excursion.

The end result at the falls is beautiful!! The hike to get there is pretty boring, but over all worth it.

We had a great time on this trail with our kids (five and two years old). The waterfall was roaring after a week's worth of rain. Our eldest loved the rocky bluffs on the east side. We packed a picnic and ate it on top of the dam overlooking the lake and spill way. Kids are ready to go back soon!

The waterfall is beautiful, the trail is easy to walk with only mild elevation changes. Everything was in amazingly pristine condition, especially for for being in a urban setting.

The trail is perfect for those looking for an easy adventure! The main trails are well maintained and there are loads of signs that tell you about the local history and nature. We wanted to get the most out of the surprisingly warm day, and even though it’s winter, the short hike was still quite beautiful.

We went today a Wednesday....waterfall was pretty but the water was not clear it had a smell to it ( maybe it was all the kids under 10 ). it was like a rich city persons nature trails!! There was 4 or 5 mothers with about a dozen and half kids making way to much noise, you could not hear the birds. You could hear the waterfall when you was up by it,because it drowned out the kids. We drove for more than 2 hours just to hear kids

Ample parking the day we went. We got off of the pavement quick and onto the dirt trail. Some great rock formations and the waterfall made it well worth the hike. This is an easy hike but a great local option!

A beautiful hike with lots to see! Not very hard Trail, but easy for kids and families. Bring water shoes if you want to cool off and wade in the creek. We brought our three kids, and trail was perfect for them. Lots of things to see on the hike and keep their attention.

The place is really pretty and easy to access, but it is always flooded with ignorant locals. Hard to enjoy the nature when people dont respect your space on the trail and when they trample over the flora.

This is NOT trail, it is a nature walk at best. Perfect for the kids. Extremely used. Lots and lots of signs identifying all the flora and fauna. While the waterfalls are nice to see this is really not for experienced hikers.
