This is a short and easy hike to a waterfall. It is a good place for a family to go with the kids. The waterfall is best after rain during the winter and early spring. Parking can be tricky though so try and get there early or go mid-week.

Great easy walk with our Labradoodle in between rains.... Rushing creek, waterfalls, bridges. Families with young children, friends, solo hikers passed by but not crowded.

Went in late August. There was no water so we got to climb all the way to the top which was nice. Great hikes for kids.

There are two inclines (if you can call them that) which don't even get your heat pumping.

But it is a nice relaxing walk.

Great views but a bit more challenging for kids than expected.
