Currently CLOSED because of too many people going and trashing the place! No damn respect for cool spots like this. If you bring it in, pack that shit out. RIDICULOUS amounts of trash. People suck!! Always gotta ruin the fun spots. Closed for the next YEAR. Aztec Falls, Gillian’s Island, Devils Hole. Don’t try to go, you’ll be turned around by the ranger at the gate. PACK YOUR SHIT UP & TAKE IT OUT.

The waterfall it’s self is very pretty and it is a great swimming spot for a hot day. However getting there was kinda hard. But the spot is deep enough to jump off the rock so that was a plus. There is sooo much trash there

It's freaking crowded! People don't respect this place, trash everywhere, beer cans and bottles everywhere with graffiti on most of the big rocks. The hike is not bad. You enjoy some of the scenery a long the way. Wish people took care of it a lot more

Crowded. Messy. Lots of trash. Very steep descent in and out. If you like Six Flags on a really busy day, go here.

If you're old or way young be careful at the end. It's basically a nice stroll on the PC trail for a mile and then down a steep embankment to the water which was beautiful. There are lots of places to hold on to so it's really not that dangerous - just go slow, requires some care. The "off roading" to get there is basically a nice little dirt road. I took my little hybrid Ford CMAX & it was no problem.

Getting there was very confusing because once we were approaching, it was off-road only. The hike was ok but the end was very unsafe (slippery and loose rocks). Not gonna lie I fell and busted my a** twice at the very bottom. Not worth it imo

The trail was great until you get to the point where you have to hike down to the waterfall. Definitely NOT kid friendly by that point. My children were able to do it (ages 5&7), but it was extremely dangerous and after doing it, I would not recommend kids do this trail. Probably kids around 10-12 but under that it’s not safe whatsoever. Once you actually get to the waterfall, to see a frontal view of it you have to hike across the water, over massive and dangerous rocks and hike down to the watering hole. While there a woman hit her head on a rock after she slipped and fell into the water. Talking with the fire chief he said they get calls out there almost every weekend during the summer for people getting hurt and quite a few dying. I also want to mention that to get to the trailhead you have to drive off road to get the parking lot. Didn’t know that when we went and I don’t have an off road vehicle so I had to park about a mile before the trailhead. Overall it was beautiful and definitely a good workout for adults who have some experience hiking.

Base jumping at the end that’s suitable in summer months! Bit of a scramble to get down to the falls, but the rope was helpful for stability.
