worst hike/camp spot i've hit in my entire life, hands down. the summer heat is intense and there is no shade. overwhelming amounts of infectious bugs, prickly plants, and poisonous snakes etc. pretty sure it was a bear that tore through our food stash but can't confirm. views are decent but not worth the trip. want real views go to kernville. my kids hated it, and the waterfall is dry now, thank you Trump.

One of the best hikes that I have gone on so far! The summer heat is intense but there is lots of shade! Lots of bugs and prickly plants but such AMAZING views! Great for kids, and the huge water fall/ladybugs at the end was amazing! June 16, 2017

I am going this Saturday but the directions told me highway 63... there's highway 43 but that can confuse people and now I don't trust the directions

A really lovely hike. The trail can be as quick or as leisurely as you like, and I imagine it'd be one of the better trails for kiddos. I hiked this last weekend, which seems to be the last cool weekend before summer heat. It'll probably be uncomfortably warm from now until autumn, unless you start very early in the morning.

We really enjoyed this trail. The river was beautiful. The lady bugs were fun. We caught a glimpse of the red salamanders. My only complaint about this trail was the accessibility to the trail head. After a winter of heavy rain the dirt road that takes you to trail head was in rough shape.

Even though we saw only one ladybug, the hike was beautiful. We crossed two creeks. The trail had some mud and is very steep in some areas so be careful with young children. The river at the end is amazing! The size of the boulders are breathtaking. My 7 and 12 yr old sons had a good time. The road up there has huge potholes so give yourself time.
