Great trail for a walk with your dog. The walk to the trail head from the parking is basically walking up a residential street. The hiking is a nice walk. If you have your dog with you there are a few stream crossings and you can not safely get your dog up or down the 2nd falls trail. This trail requires a leash.

Overall a good trail... the first bit is in a residential area and honestly the hardest part to get through. But once you get past it you enter lovely scenery. More of a intense walk than a hike. Waterfall is beautiful but do be careful there is alot of loose dirt and fairly steep in that area so hard to stay put. The only negative is there is alot of horse "waste" throughout the trail. Be sure to get there early!

got a little lost along the way theres a couple of trails that lead to nothing so you have to be sure which ones the right one but over a great hike !

The only problem with this trail are the humans who leave their trash everywhere and tag the trees. Utterly ridiculous.
