Might have had a better experience a couple months ago when there was probably more water flowing. It is mostly shaded so it could be a good one to do when it is hot. I guess we should have parked in the 1st available parking area but we continued on and parked in the main lot near the campground and our RT hike was only 1.3 miles.

This was a pretty awesome little trail. Although I passed multitudes of people to and from the waterfall, it was by no means crowded. I was able to take plenty of photos of the falls in all of its glory without random individuals in the shots. And if you're up for a short moderate/hard challenge, immediately to the right of the waterfalls base is a trail that'll take you up to the top of the waterfall. It’s definitely worth checking out before the water dries up.

Great trail. Maybe slightly harder than easy, which to me means "no problem doing it in street shoes without exhausting yourself". The effort level was easy, but there were a few parts with narrow dirt paths on canyons edges where decent footwear is better. Other than that minor note, the trail was great and almost empty on a weekend with a pleasant waterfall and pool at the end.

Fun short hike! There was water at the fall, lots of shade throughout the trail, and good for all ages. I will definitely go back.
