Great little hike for our mini-hikers in our party. We actually go off trail where it takes a u-turn and there is another trail, less worn, that takes you down to the creek. For those willing to try it, if you can get across the creek and follow a narrow trail about 500 more yards, you'll come across a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole.
