Great rock formations and a cooling off spot before or after more strenuous hikes in the other canyon areas!

Well maintained and well marked. There is a ranger at the trail head for questions. They are friendly and very willing to chat about its history, what you'll see etc. Trail walks along a small creek with cascades (I didn't see anything I would classify as a waterfall) and babbles along in areas. Amazing to be in the desert with that much water and the sounds. The creek is lined with palms and small bushes. Goes through areas with shade and some areas with none and its hot with little breeze until you go up so remember water, hats etc. A short steep area to go up but wonderful breeze at the top and great view. Disappointed that there's a fence that is out of place. Some club bought the property years ago and its private property. Would like to see the fence perhaps made to blend in or be hidden by plants. Porta potties only (stinky at the end of the season) but they keep hand sanitizer in them and there's a small station outside with soap that you use a foot pump to get enough water to rinse. Same at visitor center.

Absolutely beautiful. Did this gorgeous easy hike on Sunday. The water was flowing and everything was so green. Picnic benches are located along the fast flowing stream and make for a great place to lunch. Trail was crowded as to be expected this time of year. I'm a local and ended up buying a year pass. I will be back.
