Beautiful trail. Some steep inclines but manageable with rest areas, maybe too steep for little ones. Wooden balcony/lookout point with benches at water fall/midpoint.

Great hike, little hard to find the real beginning (on Cedar Valley Dr) instead of the halfway point right off the 41. But either way great hike with plenty of steps and areas to rest and enjoy the falls.

Overall it was a fun hike. Two kids aged 12 and 10 were fine on the hike. Only reason why it wasn’t a 5 was because of the excess debris on the trail such as fallen trees, trash, etc.

Trail was a bit wet going towards the Christian Camp, but if you’re only hiking to the Falls, it should be fine with moderate foot traffic. There was a loose Pit Bull terrier closer to the Cedar Valley trailhead that barked and scared off a few hikers and their dogs, but there is a big sign from the owner near the trail that read “Beware of the Dog”.

EASY and beautiful! Great little hike if you're on your way to or coming from Yosemite. Beautiful waterfall and some great pools to cool off in or take a swim. Dog friendly. Lots of people. Most stop at the first fall, but keep going and you'll get to the other smaller falls, and the fun pools. Pretty field and wooded areas to walk through also. The river/creek has a handful of nice places to stop and have a snack.

Very nice area to hike, would rate this trail 5 stars but today the black flies were so bad we turned back early. If you haven't experienced these flies before you will be surprised at how agressive and persistent they can be, constantly swarming your head and face. A bug net for the face could be the difference between a ruined hike or one that is enjoyable some times of year. Even with Deep Woods Off, the insects were too persistent and thick. Still fairly smoky out today also. A lot of Poison Oak everywhere so be careful there. We will try back again in a while.

Today my husband and I took our 3 boys on this hike (3, 4, and 7). We made it all the way up to the waterfalls. It was so nice to be able to stop at the creek and cool off. It did have some steep incline but it was manageable. We will be doing this hike again!
