Really enjoyed hike! First three miles are mellow but after that it's a lot of fun if you like climbing rocks - definitely makes a nice addition to your hike.

A lot of fun did 9.6 miles in 3.5 hours, once you get to the water fall (the water only flows when the snow melts FYI) go right and you'll find some ropes and a beat up climb once you make it to the top go left to the creek bed and left again to get to the top of the waterfall and see all the tiny people at the bottom. Then once you make it back to the creek bed go left and you'll hit the dirt road again for a present walk back!

This was by far my favorite hike ever. It was vary challenging if you are smaller, like me, but it was still an amazing experience.
