Wonderful hike. We set out quite late so didn't make it to the big waterfall. Hiking back in the twilight we heard a large deep growl in the thick vegetation at the side of the trial. I can only think it was a Mountain Lion. Pretty scary at the time but we make it back! Definitely going back in the Spring as I think it will be particularly beautiful then

This trail technically goes through private land the rest of the way about a mile or so in when you run into heron ranch. I'm not sure if it's ok to walk through there but we didn't since it said no trespassing. Did anyone else see the sign? We were really looking forward to getting to the waterfall too :(
